Mostly Naked Women by Jenny Doores

October 13, 2017 | 5-9 pm
at Tallgrass Studios
720 E. 9th Street, #2, Lawrence, KS 66044

Jenny uses bodies to carry the obvious message, but also to convey contradiction: the classic and cartoony, iconic and companionable, sublime and ridiculous. They often become messengers of the moods, myths, and memes between men and women, and yes the women are largely bad-ass.

Jenny Doores teaches ceramic sculpture at Lawrence Art Center.
