"Femina" is an exhibition of photographs by Farrah Al Sulaiman and Jessica Shaper showcasing the evolution and diversity of feminine cultures in American and Arabic societies. It will be available for viewing October 14-19, 2013. A reception will be held on October 17 including refreshments, artist talks and one on one time with the artists.
The word "feminine" evolved front the root word "femine" meaning "of or relating to women or girls". The work of Farrah Al-Sulaiman is influenced by her Saudi heritage; clearly evident in her photographs. Her use of wet plate collodion, captures the beauty of her subject in a timeless way.
However, Jessica Schaper draws her inspiration from growing up in the bustling city of Houston, Texas and observing the interactions of various people groups. Together, their works contrast the appearances and roles of women in two very different cultures yet highlights their similarities in modern-day femininity."
