Artist Armisey Smith's Solo-Exhibition | Sugared Walls

Armisey Smith's "Sugared Walls" exhibition will be up the entire month and will end with her Artist Talk on Friday, August 26th 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM. 

The "Sugared Walls" exhibit explores the range and depth of women of color sexuality via 34 unique vagina sculptures. The series attempts to dispel traditional visual notions of vaginas; the pristine, virginal, oversexualized, menopausal and pre-pubescent. Each piece represents diverse emotional, physical and magical facets of this complex series of muscles that ultimately can wield both great joy and pain. 

All the sculptures are mixed media; incorporating materials like glass, shells, beads, brown sugar, dried flowers, etc. to elicit various responses and interactions with the pieces. As with any visual cues, participants will be drawn to a pieces or pieces that personally resonate with them. It is the artists’ desire to connect with women of color activating or appending their own sexuality.
