Exhibition continues through Sat October 30th by appointment
Caitlin Arnold @ WHAT IT IS
Please join us on Sunday the 3rd of October at the slightly later time of 4 -9pm for an exhibition / installation of work by Chicago photographer Caitlin Arnold. The series girls embodies a two and half year endeavor to represent girls and young women, focusing on how they identify with their own femininity and relate to others. The portraits depict girls of many ages, and though unintentional, their expressions and body language tend to show a certain resemblance to one another. These similarities help inform the viewer that experiencing maturity and being comfortable with your own femininity isn’t specific to a certain age and is an important part of a woman’s growth.
