> DESCRIPTION

The Donna and Jim Barksdale Galleries for Changing Exhibitions
This exhibition features more than fifty works by artist Claudia DeMonte from her recent series on exercise.  For more  than thirty years, DeMonte has been interested in understanding the role of women in the world today.  Her latest concept is based on the idea “that only in a wealthy country like ours do women have such abundance… of food, time, $$, to actually have the 'luxury' to exercise”.  DeMonte creates hand carved familiar objects like running shoes and dumbbells that are covered in small pewter trinkets reminiscent of milagros, a traditional Catholic good-luck charm.  Her works are humorous and powerful in presenting the reality of women’s choices in modern society.
