Artist Talk and Opening Reception – Glossy Dream

January 13 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

Please join us for an artist talk, followed by an opening reception for our new exhibition.

About the Exhibition:
GearBox Gallery presents Glossy Dream, featuring paintings by Christine Ferrouge and torn paper collage by TaVee McAllister Lee. This exhibition reveals glimpses of the internal fragments of a girl’s imagination. Complicated expectations, history, cultural adornments, and advertising surrounds and influences the optimistic young woman-to-be.

Beneath Ferrouge’s painted surfaces is a world of imagination and serious introspection. Each female character has an intense psychological presence. TaVee McAllister Lee’s work references modern-day advertising, idealized beauty and luxury, at times juxtaposed ironically to the harsher realities that simultaneously exist in the world.

This thought-provoking exhibition touches on what lies beneath the gloss and sheen held out as a promising future. An exploration of the American girl psyche, it is simultaneously startling and hopeful.
