4:00 - 6:00 A CELEBRATION OF GENDER IN THE ARTS

"Integrating Inspiration: An Art Exhibition by Radford University Students, Faculty, and Alumni." I have chosen this title for the exhibition for several reasons. First of all, these artists have conceptualized in their visual art the necessity to integrate aspects of gender that are not necessarily categorized as "male" or "female", but encompass universal characteristics. The need to see and understand the other, rather than ignore and deny creates a basis for inspiration, whether the issue is the self, the body, the home, art history, religion, etc. Also, in their formal aspects, many of these works employ mixed-media techniques to convey concepts, further adding to the integration of traditionally classified imagery. Charmagne M. Dutton

During this time, the artists whose work appears in the exhibition will be available to discuss their work.
