WHITNEY TURETZKY: FEMININE GRANDEUR
September 13 - November 25, 2018

Whitney Turetzky takes antique, usually anonymous photographs, and alters them, using historic iconography, photo transfers, bold acrylic paint, embroidery thread, digital modification, and vintage collaged ephemera to layer a visual story of “feminine grandeur,” in which women are glorified and magnified into spiritual superstars, or, as she puts it, “badass haloed goddesses.” But far from flashy, gaudy comic art, the result is a moving depiction of normal women, most nameless, celebrated in a rich, textured, contemporary but empathetic way. In short, she says of her work, “I am a visual artist telling stories of feminine grandeur”. 

Turetzky’s show opens on Thursday September 13, with a reception from 7 to 9PM. There will be an artist’s talk on Saturday September 15 at 2PM. It will close Sunday November 25.
