From 6 pm sharp, patrons are permitted to remove work from the walls to complete a purchase and take the piece home with them that evening. All works in this exhibition will be smaller than 12" x 12 " and priced at $100. Exhibiting artists will receive 100% of the proceeds from their sales.

The exhibition will be juried by Beacon Gallery Owner and Director Christine O’Donnell along with Jessica Burko, artist, educator, and Program Manager and Curator at the Photographic Resource Center Boston. Sponsors for Art Dash include Aquitaine Restaurant Group, Stella Artois, Goose Island Brewery, Babe Wine, and Lucas Bols Distillery. By promoting thoughtful support for local arts communities, Art Dash is guaranteed to be an event to remember!

Believe Her: Digital Poster Show

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Description

Poster design has been used by women throughout history to advocate for equality and share messages. If you identify as a woman and have faced harrasment or discrimination, or have felt silenced because of your gender share your story. Design a poster about a time you felt silenced, posters can be any medium and any size. Posters will be reviewed and featured in an digital poster exhibition designed to help women's voices be heard.

Background

In 2017 during the peak of the Me Too movement I designed a poster as a way to work through my discomfort as the overwhelming number of stories about harassment broke on the news and social media, everywhere I turned it seemed that there were more stories coming to light. As someone who has been a victim of harassment this time made me reflect upon my experiences as well as think about how many women’s stories go untold, behind the thin veil of what has been deemed socially acceptable to talk about were hundreds of women who had stayed silent. For me designing that poster was cathartic and helped me to work through some of the discomfort I was going through. It made me consider the many voices who weren’t believed when they told their stories, and the ones too afraid of the consequences to share theirs. What if poster design could help these voices be heard and believed? I am hoping to collect posters and curate an augmented reality poster show to help women share their stories, and hopefully this process will be as beneficial for them as it was for me in 2017.
