OUR HISTORY, OUR VOICES PROJECT
The Connie Flachs Exhibit
About Her Exhibit…
I am inspired by movement and human growth, physical, mental and spiritual.
This work in particular is part of a series of dance journal entries that have enabled me to document a time of major transition (of career, personal life, and place) in my life.
The female spirit, to me, is sensual, feeling, flexible, and deep.
This piece is called “I Am”.
The Dorothy Barkley Bryson Exhibit
I am inspired by the wonders of Spiritual encounters and scientific discovery, by Nature, by Peoples, and by the remarkable diversity in every element of life. My writing is a reflection of what I see and especially the way I see it, and is a celebration of the Oneness echoed throughout all creation.
The Mera Ragsdale Exhibit
My paintings question the way we look at feminine bodies especially in comparison to how masculine bodies are viewed. In art history, the objectification and presentation of female bodies and an accepted way to present and view them has long been prevalent, specifically as non-threatening objects of sexual desire. My work questions these long accepted practices and empowers my subjects to visually challenge the viewer.
The Emerald Green Exhibit
My name is Emerald Green and I am a photographer in Atlanta, GA. My submissions include images of women throughout the 2020 protests that were held throughout GA as well as Louisville, KY. I thought about what was asked of me, about me telling about myself and my work. While I was at different protests, I saw that there were only white men who were capturing moments.
