Steam Whistle - Do One Thing Really, Really Well

Exposed: The Female Perspective & Voices (March art show)

Steam Whistle hosts an exhibit in theme with International Women's Day.

Steam Whistle Brewing has been supporting the artist community since 2000 by hosting monthly art exhibitions in their Gallery to showcase local creative talent. The March art exhibit is a collaboration of two artist groups exploring women’s issues in theme with the International Women’s Day (held this year on March 8th). The Opening Night Party on Wednesday March 7th 2012 from 7-11pm at Steam Whistle Brewing will feature poetry reading and a screening of a documentary “Women with Wordz” by Anna Piszczkiewicz in addition to the visual art and photography on display.

The exhibition entitled Exposed: The Female Perspective highlights female artists of this generation, who are representative of the art movement today. This work shares a common focus by commenting on contemporary art as a whole through the female perspective while emphasizing the significance of process. Putting their most intimate selves on display, this group of female artists explore their inner most thoughts, feelings and desires while creating a statement on societal expectations in an unedited and paradoxical movement. The audience is invited to define their own interpretation of these works.

The exhibit entitled Voices explores the complicated journey towards women finding their voice in modern times. Through words, art, photography and poetry, the young women have found a means of expressing their voices, their unique identities, and the many challenging and exciting moments that surround them. The exhibit speaks to the journey of women as they move from uncertain and questioning tones of voice to the war cry in the fight for justice and all of the voices in between. The “words” are based on poetry and writings from a collection called “Holla!” created by Literature for Life’s Women’s Words Reading Circle group.  The photos and artwork are contributed by many women who are connected with Literature for Life as volunteers, supporters and participants.
