Presenting “Pretty, Sexy, Dirty Girly”, a multimedia exhibition of all female artists addressing the topic of feminine sexuality, curated by Seattle artist, Siolo Thompson. The exhibit opens on Friday, February 10th and includes everything from pin up photographs and figurative paintings and illustrations to pieces that will challenge the viewer to look beyond the surface of the work and examine their reactions and interactions with the work and the artists. For example, Maggie Schneider, one of the artists will perform “pants. dance. revolution,” where she will dance in her underwear inside the gallery while listening to music that only she can hear. Her performance will thrust the audience into a voyeuristic role asking the viewer to examine how they feel about this type of public expression.
“Buy Dirty Art for a Clean Cause”
Attendee’s will have two chances to support a “clean cause”. The gallery will be holding a raffle AND will be a collection station for bringing new socks, laundry soap, toothbrushes and other hygiene items to support the Urban Rest Stop. The Urban Rest Stop in Seattle is a charity that provides a clean, safe and welcoming facility where individuals and families in need can come and use restrooms, shower and laundry facilities. They are an important service that has benefited thousands of homeless and needy folks over the years and these services have been provided at no cost to patrons.
