Reimagining Femmage

by

The art of being a woman goes beyond having a seemingly balanced life both in and out the home. Reimagining Femmage, the new exhibit at the Foundry Art Centre, is built around the feminist art movement "femmage" -- collage-style work created by women that focuses on both the inner life and the outward impression. Juried by Contemporary Art Museum's Lisa Melandri, the show includes work by 47 women artists who embrace skills such as knitting, sewing and weaving in their artistic expression: Here, "women's work" truly becomes work by women.

Opening reception 6-8 p.m. Fri., Feb. 20. Continues Tue.-Sun. through Apr. 3. Foundry Art Centre (520 North Main Center, St. Charles; 636-255-0270 or www.foundryartcentre.org). Free admission.
Fridays, Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sundays, 12-4 p.m.; Tuesdays-Thursdays, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Starts: Feb. 21. Continues through April 3, 2015
