Event Description

Solo exhibition by Maxine Hess. Opening reception, Saturday, March 18, 2017 from 6:00-9:00 PM. Hidden In Plain Sight series is driven by challenging personal and current social issues and includes an interactive installation as well as two dimensional artwork dealing with subjects such as gun violence, the restricting and sexualizing of women, and sex and human trafficking. The use of materials often associated with women including fabric, stitching, quilting, and wallpaper patterns is contrasted with the harsh realities of the content to provoke the viewer's thinking and influence intellectual and emotional dialogue with others.
