Another exhibition I am in this month Dress/Shield at Lump Gallery in Raleigh, NC. Lump Gallery is an awesome place that has been showing rad art for 20 years now! I've shown with them numerous times and I'm thankful for all the support Bill and company have shown me over the years. From Lump's announcement:
Lump is pleased to announce its 2nd installment for Lumpxx, celebrating Lump's 20th season of programming. Dress/Shield, an exhibition of new works by six women artists who have a history of showing at Lump. Dress/Shield will run from October 2 to October 31, 2015 with an opening reception on Friday, October 2nd from 6 - 9pm.
The artists featured in the exhibition include Leah Bailis, Philadelphia, PA; Lee Delegard, Brooklyn, NY; Lydia Moyer, Covesville, VA; Molly Schafer, Chicago, IL; Tory Wright, Greenville, SC; and Laura Sharp Wilson, Salt Lake City, UT. Their working processes are diverse, encompassing sculpture, textiles, video, photography, and works on paper.
For the artists, their identity as women underpins the work they make. Individually, their voices are distinct and varied. This group show is an opportunity to see how the perception of those voices changes when they are in chorus and to explore the connections between the work of women artists who are disparate in geography and media while sharing a formative connection to North Carolina and Lump.
