Heroine/Whore – June’s First Friday Exhibition

Jennifer VonStein

June 7 - 28th, 2019
Opening Reception: 06/07/2019, 5-9pm

In this series of paintings, Jennifer celebrates and questions the roles of women, the ones they subscribe to and the ones assigned to them.  Rather than simply repositioning the male gaze, she invited her models to label themselves as saint, sinner, heroine, whore, bride, maiden, mother, crone and become empowered by that label.
