OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, April 3, 2015 – 6pm – 10pm

Join us for a celebration of Ohio’s first transgender art exhibit, featuring 15 artists from around the country sharing their experience as trans individuals. Opening night festivities will include outdoor light installations, live music by Christine Louis and performance art by Christine Howey. After the wine and cheese reception, we’ll continue the revelry at the Beachland Ballroom in an after-party courtesy of Ohio Burlesque and DJ David Tasslehoff!

The work presented in this exhibit is in a variety of media including, painting, print, sculpture and photography. The artists’ perspectives range from humorous to anguished and challenge us to think more broadly about gender, beauty and the human form. We appreciate the work of our curators – Evan Fusco, Lorence Hyler, Craig Matis, Jeanette Thomas, and Douglas Max Utter.

Participating Artists: Seyi Adebanjo, Ianna Book, Raisa Cabrera, Mara Goldfine, Nicki Green, Golden H/ours, Alex Holland, Oliver Klicker, Zoe Renee Lapin, Kean O’Brien, Iram Roberts, Gavin Rouille, Maxx Sizeler, Kate Weakley, Milo Wissig.
