Pearls, Ruff, Lace, Power
a solo exhibition by Sarah Holden
Opening Saturday, February 23 with a happy hour from 6-9pm
I source and celebrate imagery and histories of women that rebel against cultural expectations of how women are supposed to act. Working inside this contested space I use traditional and non-traditional craft techniques to challenge these expectations by creating a role reversal through material. If steel represents the masculine and fiber represents the feminine, how can I reverse their expected gender associations and challenge the status quo?
