February 24, 6-9 PM

Solo exhibition featuring mixed media oil paintings by Danielle Festa.

There are many factors that contribute to perceptions of dress, deriving both from the individual’s choice and the viewer’s preconception. The endless combinations of these variables have inspired Festa to explore and advance this theme for over a decade.

In each painting, Festa experiments with the transition between paint and fabric, allowing her subjects to transform into the characters she creates. Sometimes the elements of mixed media announce their presence first, but other times the fabric is subtly transitioned with the paint, demanding a second look.

Based on real moments in the lives of her subjects, Festa calls attention to the importance we put on clothing. Onlookers are invited to experience the independent choices, the religious mandates and the social constructs that influence both what we wear and how we view others.

The Face of Feminism Now

Opening
March 2, 4-8 PM

Artist Reception
March 24, 6-9 PM

Solo exhibition featuring the photography of Phoenix Mayet.

The Face of Feminism Now is a year-long documentary photography project inspired by the Women’s March on Washington. After attending the march and feeling the power of our collective strength, Phoenix Mayet returned to NH with the intention of documenting the local response to the march in the first year of the Trump administration. The Face of Feminism Now features portraits of individuals who proudly identify as feminists along with their own words about the future of our movement. Mayet's goal is to create a dialogue between the viewer and each of the participants about the state of Seacoast feminism today.

Women, men and gender queer individuals are all invited! If you would like to participate, you must first complete the Feminist Model Survey. Each participant will receive a free low-res copy of their portrait for use online. Visit phoenixmayet.com for more information and to take the survey.
