When: Fri., May 11, 7-10 p.m. and May 12-25 2018
Boasting new individual and collaborative works from Brittany Ham and Justin Korver, two increasingly visible local artists, this dual exhibition caught our attention for its promising talents, the consistently multiplying credibility of host gallery Clamp Light, and for its absolutely loaded title. As you might imagine from the name “Boys With Feelings and Girls Without Them,” this collection of paintings and sculptures tackles important themes of gender and the performance of identity. Through various mediums and explorations of surface, the artists use abstraction to alternately mystify and clarify considerations of how identity is produced and warped in a society that still clings tightly to stereotypes fashioned in the dark ages of our species. Following the opening reception, "Boys With Feelings and Girls Without Them" remains on view by appointment through May 25.
