DESCRIPTION

Lorrie Saunders ArtGallery is pleased to present  the new exhibition, WAIT 'TIL YOUR FATHER COMES HOME, featuring the works of photographer Jason Hanasik and crochet artist Nathan Vincent, opening September 17 and showing through October 29, 2011.

Photographer Jason Hanasik and crochet artist Nathan Vincent explore the normative ideal of American masculinity and how it shapes and influences the way in which we as a society "build boys and men." Though working independently and with different media, each artist poses questions and challenges society's conception about contemporary masculinity and the expectations young men are asked to uphold.

A Hampton Roads native, Jason Hanasik lives and works in San Francisco, CA. Originally from the Midwest, Nathan Vincent currently resides in New York City. Both artists have extensive exhibitions records and their works are held in numerous private collections.
