An exhibition about the stuff of womanhood.
We measure ourselves by our perception of someone else’s standards. We don’t see ourselves as beautiful. We see ourselves as flawed. We focus on our imperfections. Our asymmetry. We feel one way and look another. Sometimes we think our lady parts are inadequate. Sometimes we are not even sure what it means to be lady. In fact, I have left my lady filter at the door in favor of a newer bolder style I like to think of neurotic, self-deprecating empowerment. What are our Lady Parts really? Heart? Mind? Do we cease to be ladies if we don’t adhere to the societal definitions of beauty and behavior? What if we find ourselves without a relationship? How does that impact our “ladiness”?
Mindy Solomon Gallery specializes in contemporary emerging and mid-career artists and art advisory services. The gallery represents artists working in painting, sculpture, photography, and video in both narrative and non-objective styles. The gallery program explores the intersection of art and design through an ongoing dialog between two and three-dimensional objects, while embracing diasporic voices. Utilizing the gallery space as a platform for inventive exhibitions, museum visitations, and public lectures, Solomon invites a sense of community and aesthetic enrichment.
Solomon founded the gallery in 2009 in St. Petersburg, Florida, where she established her reputation as a contemporary art dealer. She is a Board member of the Miami Art Dealers Association and is currently located in the Little River Arts District of Miami.
