Athena Shrugged Remix – 2017

Join Long-Sharp Gallery as we celebrate women in the arts with “Athena Shrugged Remix.” The exhibit opens Friday, November 10 from 6:30-9:00pm and will be followed by a panel discussion Saturday, November 11 from 10:30am-12:00pm.

Exploration of the role of women in the contemporary art world has been a year long project at Long-Sharp Gallery.  Indeed, “Athena Shrugged Remix” is the 5th installment of a five-part project that began earlier this year in Long-Sharp Gallery’s New York Project Space.  Parts I-IV of the series constituted solo exhibits in LSG New York, each focused on the work of one female artist: Constance Edwards Scopelitis (Indiana, Part I), Jamea Richmond-Edwards, (Maryland, Part II), Sabina Klein (New York, Part III), and Tatyana Fazlalizadeh (New York, Part IV).

The series ends in Indianapolis with Athena Shrugged Remix.  This final group exhibit includes works by the artists exhibited in New York this year (Scopelitis, Richmond-Edwards, Klein, Fazlalizadeh) and adds invited Indiana artists Anila Quayyum Agha (Indianapolis) and Cagney King (Greenfield), Amy Kirchner (Indianapolis), and Mary Pat Wallen (Warsaw).

A panel discussion on Women in the Arts will take place Saturday November 11, 2017 from 10:30 am – 12:00.   The discussion will be moderated by Shannon Linker, Vice President of the Indianapolis Arts Council and the Curator for Gallery 924.  Panelists will be Constance Edwards Scopelitis, Amy Kirchner, Anila Quayyum Agha, and Cagney King.

The exhibit and panel discussion are sponsored by Conrad Indianapolis, Evan Todd Salon & Spa and Pattern Magazine.
