Exhibit: The Feminine Portrayal: Varied Representations of Women in Art

  

Dates: March 1, 2022 - May 1, 2022

Exhibit Location: Louise Pettus Archives and Special Collections, 700 Cherry Road, Rock Hill, SC 29730

     The Louise Pettus Archives presents, The Feminine Portrayal: Varied Representations of Women in Art. Join us to explore the ways in which women are portrayed in different art forms across different time periods.  You will find various archival pieces that highlight the impact of art and culture on the feminine image.  Throughout this display, you can explore the themes and complexities of womanhood and how deeply image impacts what women do, how women act, and what societal roles women play.  We aim to explore images that can be seen as beautiful, harmful, and healing to women and provoke a sense of change and hope for a more positive future. The exhibit includes items from ancient civilizations in Central America, 19th and 20th century China and Japan, as well as local and regional art.  Please come to enjoy the display beginning March 1, 2022, continuing through the spring semester.
