Women&rsquo;s bodies continue to be the ground around which much of the conflict revolves. Strangely enough (as we saw in recent Supreme Court hearings) some of the hysteria around these events now seems to also emanate from men, which suggests the need for a new metaphor to explain the cause of women&rsquo;s rage.&nbsp;<br /> Work for this exhibition will be juried by Olive Stefanski, a multidisciplinary artist working in fiber art, installation, performance and sound.</span></span></p> Mon, 10 Dec 2018 11:26:01 -0800 Small Works 2019 | Deadline April 1, 2019 <p style="text-align: center;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif"><span style="font-size:18px"><img alt="Trestle Gallery" src=";height=220&amp;mode=crop&amp;anchor=middlecenter&amp;v=1538429507" style="height: 179px; width: 600px;" /></span></span></p> <p><span style="font-family:georgia,serif"><span style="font-size:18px"><strong>Small Works 2019</strong><br /> <em>Curated by Will Hutnic</em><br /> <br /> <strong>Submission Guidelines:&nbsp;</strong><br /> -&nbsp;Pieces may be no bigger than 12&quot; on longest side&nbsp;-&nbsp;we accept framed and unframed works of all media.
