(en)Gendered…. Tonight!

"One Year" by Lauren Blair (2012 winner)

We love being able to kick off the Spring semester with one of our favorite annual events: the (en)Gendered Juried Art Exhibition. SBAI, the Department of Art and Art History, and the rest of the community will be celebrating the opening tonight at Sage Art Center.

Our judges this year included:

Dianne Edgar, Clinical Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Rochester Medical Center. Dr. Edgar is also a women’s health care provider at ParkWest Women’s Health. She is a member of several organizations, including Physicians for Reproductive Choice and Health, Physicians for Social Responsibility, and the American College of Gynecologists. Outside of her work in health care, she is interested in the Rochester cultural events and arts.

Cary Peppermint, Assistant Professor of Art. Peppermint’s own work explores the convergence of ecological, cultural, and digital networks, through a post-disciplinary practice with strong ties to internet art and performance art. In 2005, he co-founded the ecoarttech collaborative with writer Leila Nadir.  Cary teaches introductory and advanced courses in digital art and theory at Sage Art Center.

Grace Seiberling, Associate Professor of Art History. Seiberling’s interests include nineteenth=century painting and photography, early British photography, and museums. She teaches many interesting courses on River Campus, including Woman as Image and Text, Arts in American Culture, History of Photography, and Culture on Display. Seiberling serves on the Susan B. Anthony Institute’s Steering Committee.

Our three judges bring interesting perspectives to the this year’s theme, “In Labor: Gendering (Re)Production”. Peppermint will open the evening with a gallery talk before announcing this year’s three jurors choice prize winners (and several honorable mentions). This is your only chance to see ALL of this year’s entries! Join us for a wonderful evening of food, art, and mingling.
