BEAUTY AS CURRENCY
Exhibition Dates: October 12th 2023 – November 5th 2023
Location: Frankie G. Weems Gallery in Gaddy-Hamrick Art Center
The Frankie G. Weems Gallery at Meredith College features the work of Paige Greeley. Greeley received a BFA in Fine Arts from Endicott College and an MFA in Painting + Drawing from Ohio University, where she was awarded the Presidential Medal of Creative Excellence. She has exhibited paintings nationally as well as in Florence, Italy.
“BEAUTY AS CURRENCY” examines Greeley’s experience as a Western woman and analyzes her previous adherence to the concept of “beauty as currency.” Combining her advocacy work on a sexual assault crisis hotline and her own exploitation, she creates visceral and figurative oil paintings that examine the perennial dangers of “beauty as currency” and the abuse it inflicts on women. Greeley currently works as a birth doula in Philadelphia, supporting new mothers and parents in pregnancy, children, and postpartum.
“BEAUTY AS CURRENCY” is on exhibition from October 12th – November 5th at the Frankie G. Weems Gallery at Meredith College. An opening reception and gallery talk will take place on October 12th from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm, with the gallery talk from 5:30 – 6:30 pm in room 137 at the Gaddy-Hamrick Art Center. Current hours at Frankie G. Weems Gallery are Monday – Friday, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm, Saturday and Sunday, 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm.
