Whitney Turetzky: Feminine Grandeur Opening

Thursday, September 13, 2018 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Whitney Turetzky takes antique, usually anonymous photographs, and alters them, using historic iconography, photo transfers, bold acrylic paint, embroidery thread, digital modification, and vintage collaged ephemera to layer a visual story of “feminine grandeur,” in which women are glorified and magnified into spiritual superstars. But far from flashy comic art, the result is a moving depiction of normal women, most nameless, celebrated in a rich, textured, contemporary but empathetic way. In short, she says of her work, “I am a visual artist telling stories of feminine grandeur”.

Turetzky’s show opens on Thursday September 13, with a reception from 7 to 9PM. There will be an artist’s talk on Saturday September 15 at 2PM. It will close Sunday November 25.
