Throughout history, throughout a lifetime, and even throughout a day, the roles and perceptions of a woman have, and continue, to drastically change. From mother, caregiver, healer, leader, and warrior, to the victim, scapegoat, and target. Women are boundary-pushers, commanders, and glass ceiling breakers. The artists in “Who’s Going To Stop Me?”  capture the complexities of what it means to be a woman, through the use of personal experiences in their work and sharing them with our audience.

Artists whose work is included in the upcoming “Who’s Going To Stop Me?” exhibit include Alejandra Castaneda, Aldea Gerard, Tabitha Gilmore-Barnes, Elaine Grandy, Carol Levine, Patrice Lorenz, Mary McFerran, Becky McNeill, Kelsey Riordan, Abi Salami, Amy Silberkleit, Candy Spilner, Dillon Utter, William Waggoner, and Violet Cricket Withall.

Artists will be present at the Opening Reception on Saturday, May 15, 2021 at 4:00 p.m. at the Roxbury Arts Center. Gallery hours are Tuesday – Saturday 10:00 a.m.– 3:00 p.m. and by appointment.
