Women of a Certain Age : The Skin We're In

I wanted to take a minute to help spread the word about something wonderful happening in the Stutz building.  I will talk more about the exhibition on my first Friday post but these women have put together a stunning calendar to benefit the Pink Ribbon Connection which helps women with breast cancer.  Only 500 of these have been made and there have been many pre-ordered, even in batches of 10 at a time! There was also an article posted about this calendar in the Indianapolis Star.


"The artist Revealed is a body of work, in calendar form, that came into being as a result of 12 women artists talking together about how we feel about ourselves as we age, how we feel about our bodies as they are affected by age, child-bearing and/or illness.  We talked about how, and if those feelings impact our work.  Each of us was photographed in the nude or semi-nude and digitally incorporated of our rated into a piece of our own work , creating a new work in which the artist and the work become one.  The images are as beautiful and varied as ourselves.  We came together, "in our skin", yet clothes in our art, and in the process learned that however we feel about "the skin we're in" our bodies are just that... vessels that hold all that we are, but not who we are.
