I caught the opening of Photo West Gallery's current show...You Go Girl back on June 20th. This show runs through July 20th, and is worth a peak if you are in Philly's Western Art Gallery area. This exhibit was assembled by Jessica Imhoff, her first as a curator. Culling the work of 8 local and national artists representing modern girl culture, Imhoff's message was "trying to show different viewpoints of women, how we view ourselves and how we want to be represented".
I particularly liked the photography work of Anita Totha. (but deduct points for presentation... is it asking too much that photos not be sliding out of their mats on opening night?) Below is the display of Untitled C-Prints by Anita Totha. Very nice sensual and dreamy imagery.
and the mixed media work of Sarah Everton.I love the use of vintage photographs in collage work.Below is her piece titled Bloody Order
The show also includes the work of Brian Blomerth, Sarah Bloom, Maiko Sembokuya, Christine Jones, Emily Glatt and Cecilia Corrigan.
