Minnesota Artists Gallery
Opening December 18 is an exhibition of neo-feminist narratives by printmakers Faye Passow and Jenny Schmid. Passow deals with feminine identity and family dysfunction in a series of humorous lithographs depicting multiple calamities converging on small family groups. Schmid's double-edged work deals with the drug use of women and girls through history. Inspired by historical documents, especially the 19th-century use of morphine to "calm the nerves" of depressed young women, Schmid's lithographs present allegorical images of "things that cause teenage girls to be bad."
"Unprepared" will open with a free public reception on Thursday, December 18, from 7 to 9 p.m.
