Arts / Exhibits
Themed Juried Exhibition Paying Tribute to Women & Women's Issues
Reception & Awards Presentation Thursday, December 12th, 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Using various mediums, 33 artists created their work of art on discarded mannequins provided by the Art Club. The exhibit is the brainchild of Jeanne Johansen with the Fort Pierce Art Club. The show’s pieces include creations by four male artists as well as female artists from four counties: Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin and Palm Beach.
“I realized that throughout time, most sculptures have been done featuring men and warriors,” said Johansen. “So I got the idea to create an art show using mannequins with a women’s theme as a way to honor women.”
A portion of the entry fee and sales will benefit the Inner Truth project and the Fort Pierce Art Club. Both groups are not-for-profit, 501(c)3 organizations. The Inner Truth Project is committed to changing the conversation and eliminating the shame and secrecy of sexual abuse, violence or rape.
