Opening Reception: Saturday November 5th 4 — 7pm
The Women's Caucus for Art Philadelphia proudly presents OUTSIDE IN, a juried exhibition featuring members of our chapter, at the Scotts Mills Studios in the East Falls section of Philadelphia.
Public armor, private thoughts.
External defenses, inner ambitions.
Outside agency, inside domesticity.
For women this duality is a condition of existence. The work in this exhibition explores the multisided and layered aspects of our exterior and interior experiences.
