WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- A new art exhibit celebrating Women's History Month and what it means to be a woman opened this week at 31 Mamaroneck Ave. in White Plains.
Sponsored by ArtsWestchester, the spring exhibit titled "SHE: Deconstructing Female Identity" features the work of 11 artists from the New York metropolitan area.
Sculptures, paintings, clothing arrangements and sitting room full of books and history about women open a discussion on issues related to gender and identity.
Featured artists include Laurel Garcia Colvin of Chappaqua, Marcy B. Freedman of Croton-on-Hudson, Mari Ogihara of White Plains, Barbara Segal of Yonkers and Tricia Wright of Kingston.
The contemporary art exhibition runs through June 25. Admission is free. An opening reception was held on Sunday.
ArtsWestchester CEO Janet Langsam said that with support from the National Endowment for the Arts the exhibition presents ideas by a selection of both well-known and emerging New York artists.
ArtsWestchester Gallery Director Kathleen Reckling said, “SHE will explore the concept that femininity, and gender generally, is a grand performance piece, a play within and against socially constructed themes and voices.”
ArtsWestchester gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday from noon to 5 p.m. and Saturday from noon to 6 p.m.
