OPEN gallery is excited to announce the premier of photo-journalist Amira Karaoud’s “I will have soft hands”, an exploration of the female expectation of marriage through-out the different cultures of the world. Having traveled to 40 countries, her exhibit is both a visual treat and a moving realization of the great distance we must still travel to create gender equality.
Amira Karaoud is a Tunisian born artist challenging the strict gender roles of her culture, leaving a career on Wall Street to pursue art and social justice, and has shown her photography in Tunis, Rome, Paris, New York, and most recently at The Crane House in Louisville. Her eye for light is equaled by her eye for texture, and every face the same “I have a story to tell” and a mystery to be solved. In these images we learn, there is no cultural difference in the joy of laughter or the frailty of age.
Saturday. October 17th at 7 PM, join us for an artist reception and entertainment featuring Joee Conroy of Ute Gret. Refreshments will be available, and as always, we are nice pet friendly.
