Has anyone pushed your buttons lately? Activism is in the air and regional artists have responded by creating 50 wearable and collectable ‘hot buttons’ designs for the upcoming Hot Buttons! exhibit at the Loading Dock Gallery. 
 
Merriam Webster defines ‘hot button’ as an emotional and usually controversial issue that triggers an immediate intense reaction. The ‘hot button’ designs in this show encompass a range from the political, social, and environmental, to other topics sure to pique public interest.
 
Hot Buttons! runs from August 2-27, but the main event takes place on Thursday, August 3, 2017 from 6:00-8:00 pm. The public will see the display of 50 collectable pinback buttons and may purchase one or more bags of 6 randomly selected buttons for $5. To get the buttons you want to collect, you must trade, cajole, buy, or beg someone who has the pinback button you want. It will be a very lively, fun, and socially interactive event.
 
The Loading Dock Gallery, a part of Loading Dock Arts, Inc., a 501c3, is open Wednesday through Saturday from Noon to 5:30 PM, and Sunday from Noon to 4 PM. For more information, call 978-656-1687 or visit www.theloadingdockgallery.com.

Saints, Sluts, and Sirens // UnchARTed Gallery

  • UnchARTed Gallery

Exhibit Dates: November 7–December 2, 2017
Opening reception: TBA

The Archetype: in Jungian psychology, archetypes are defined as “a collectively inherited unconscious idea, pattern of thought, image, etc., universally present in individual psyches.”

The various archetypes of the feminine have long been a rich and varied subject in art.  Marilyn Monroe, Mother Teresa, the Virgin Mary, Cleopatra, Eleanor Roosevelt, Bonnie Parker, the list goes on and on throughout history. These archetypes have played an enormous role in how we perceive (conscious or unconscious) and characterize the feminine of today.

The exhibit’s proposed goal is to bring these archetypes (the mother, slut, saint, victim, seductress, goddess) into the public eye in an informative, powerful, and creative manner.

Wage On! Women, Art, and Money

  • Ceres Gallery

WAGE ON! Women, Art, and Money
Ceres Gallery in Chelsea, New York City
January 31 through February 25, 2017

Juror: Helga Christoffersen, Assistant Curator, the New Museum in New York City
Organizer: Women’s Caucus for Art (WCA)

This exhibition explores how women artists view the current economic climate and its impact on wages, identity, and lives of women both in and beyond the art world. With the emergence of big data and the digital humanities, we can now chart and interpret income inequality, disparities in both prices and sales of art by men and women, the rising cost of living, and global financial crises with ease. Yet, these statistics often miss women’s real experiences around money, and how financial realities impact women’s lives.
