Embraces: New Work by Samuel L. Paden

When: Saturdays, 12-6 p.m. Continues through May 26

This new series has evolved out of a reaction to the ways patriarchy in contemporary American culture expresses control and concern over how males present in society and persistent rigid gender norms. By making the male nude the object, there is a refocusing of the viewer's gaze to "strip," if you will, the symbols of male power. They are now presented for the pleasure of the viewer, challenging their perceptions while allowing them to fill in narratives of their own. Through May.
