Photos from the Stop Telling Women to Smile opening at Betti Ono Gallery on March 7th, 2014. Photos taken by Oakland Art Enthusiast. The exhibition runs through April 19th, featuring a mural by local badass artists Jessica Sabogal and Cece Carpio.
This show features the original drawings of each portrait subject from the series. The large scale posters are of local Oakland women that I met just days before the show. You can see in this show the process of the project - small graphite drawings to large scale wheat pasted posters.
I wasn’t able to attend the opening but I will be there next week for an artist talk on March 20, 2014.
