Detail of Courtney Fairwather's sculpture "Doll House"Upper year visual art student Courtney Fairweather’s solo exhibition When I Grow Up … is a critical examination of “traditional” gender roles.

 

Sweet Dreams uses illustrations by such people as Mabel Lucie Attwell, Muriel Dawson, and Susan B. Pearse, applied to bedroom curtains.These images socialize little girls into acceptance of traditional gender roles whereby they clean house and are passive in the face of male violence. The second part of the exhibition, Doll House, is a metaphorical representation of what girls can expect, if they adhere to these gender roles. This mixed media exhibition also includes photographic material.

Gallery Hours:
Mon. – Thurs. 10am – 4pm.

Admission is free and all are welcome
