Art Exhibit  Explored a Women’s Self-Perception and Self-Realization


SIGNAL HILL, CA – September 17h, 2016 – Greenly Art Space hosted the opening reception of "Inside-Out". The contemplative art show explores how women see themselves as individuals and how they believe they are perceived by others.  Each participant was given only a disposal camera to utilize for this reflection on self-perception and self-realization. 

 

The 19 artists showing at "Inside-Out" put a spotlight on an array of stereotypes affecting women today. Kimberly Hocking, Art Director and Curator, encourages patrons to hear their stories. “It’s our intention to help the viewer move beyond what they think they see and know to an understanding of the unique challenges women around the world face.  We each want to be known for our own story and not one that is told through common stereotypes .”

For this show, Greenly Art Space collaborated with individuals from "Pathways to Independence", a non-profit scholarship foundation in the U.S. that provides monthly stipends to young women, many who have been the victims of abuse.  Young women from Kroo Bay, a slum in Sierra Leone, West Africa also participated. Cami Goble, the facilitator for the project in Sierra Leone states, "listening to them talk about their photos was like a new window into their souls.  I feel like I have received a very special gift in their stories."
