Check out our interview with The Other Woman: LINK
(PHILADELPHIA): Debutante Set, an exhibition of new artwork by the members of The Other Woman (a ladies art collective) to be featured at Mew Gallery in South Philadelphia, is the premier exhibition of the fledgling ladies art collective. The show will feature work from each of the group’s four members, giving the public their first opportunity to view the drawings and installations of Aubrie Costello, the photography of Laura Graham, the sculpture of Darla Jackson, and the drawings and paintings of Laura McKinley within one space. From quietly contemplative to darkly cinematic, the exhibited works strive to pull into focus that which lies at the fringe of vision.
Overall, Debutant Set is, as the show’s title suggests, a coming out of four female artists, each using distinctive materials to talk about individual obsessions, and using the concepts their works share to make their ideas speak stronger and louder. Their voices overlap to form a complex conversation on the challenges and opportunities they face everyday as twenty-something women. With distinct histories and particular mentalities, these artists are wrestling growth while moving forward.
The exhibition opened on September 22nd and runs through November 2.
Mew Gallery is located at 906 Christian Street, Philadelphia, PA. 215.625.2424
