Celebrating the female in her infinite aspects in a variety of art media is the theme of the Southern Shore Art Associations' March exhibition. The opening reception is Friday, March 7, from 5-8pm in conjunction with the monthly First Friday festivities in Michigan City's historic Uptown Arts District. Complimentary refreshments will be served.
“This is the second year in March, National Women's History Month that the Southern Shore Art Association has dedicated the exhibition to the image and form of the fabulous female” said Susan Block, Curator and Chair of the exhibition. “Last year's show, 'Fifty Shades of Female,' showcased the artworks of regional member and guest artists, both men and women, painters, sculptors and photographers and attracted many visitors from Chicago to South Bend. The Chicago Tribune cited the exhibition as their 'pick of the week'. We look forward to the same excitement this year for “SHE.”
Southern Shore Art Association is a regional, non-profit arts organization offering the Gallery as a venue for established and emerging Midwest artists to exhibit and sell their work.
Exhibits rotate monthly with member, guest, juried and student exhibitions with a free opening reception affording an opportunity to meet the exhibiting artists.
The Southern Shore Art Association Gallery is located at 724 Franklin Street in Michigan City, IN. Exhibition hours are Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 12-5pm (CST). "SHE" exhibit will run through Sunday March 30. Check also at www.SouthernShoreArtAssociation.com.
