Friday, September 23
Cusp: Photographs of Contemporary Girlhood. Work by Charlotte-based artists Carolyn DeMeritt and Margaret Strickland. Created nearly thirty years apart, the photographs featured in ‘cusp’ timelessly capture the fleeting in-between of female adolescence and examine girlhood as a place as much as a point in time. In photographing friends and family, DeMeritt and Strickland’s poised portraits of girlhood commingle to create a site of encounter between gender identity, gender performance and the tensions therein.
‘cusp’ will open on Friday, September 23 from 6-9 pm.
at Hodges Taylor Art Consultancy
118 East Kingston Ave, Suite 25C, Charlotte, North Carolina 28203
