The Visual Arts Centre in Bowmanville has Fiona Crangle's "Look Out/ Look In" on exhibit. The show runs from Saturday Mar 10 - Sunday Apr 4 with an artist talk on Mar 25 at 1 - 3 p.m.
In the accompanying catalogue there is a question asked - "by reclaiming the process of painting the woman, and positioning contemporary woman in place of historical ones, Crangle, becomes the actor and raises questions about the ways women are scrutinized in painting. How are we looking at them today?"
Lets answer that. There have been quite a few female-centric exhibitions in Durham Region in the past while. Read about some of them here and then look at some of the works by Toni Hamel and Shaun Downey for their looks at women.
