One of my dear friends has an art exhibition opening on Saturday, May 2 in Miami.  I hope you’ll check out her work sometime this month if you live in Miami.  You won’t be sorry!

I owe you the end of the world
Park McArthur
May 2nd – June 6th 2009

Pyramid Studios is pleased to present I owe you the end of the world, an MFA thesis exhibition by Park McArthur.  An expressive, yet tender use of color and word characterize her narrative drawings, texts on graph paper, and video.  Park McArthur links her pictorial and linguistic vocabularies through wordplay and visual puns, creating a conceptual space in which images describe themselves and words represent visual art.  The works in I owe you the end of the world provide new accounts of the promises, negotiations, adventures, and calm apocalypses common to our human relationships.

Park McArthur graduated from Davidson College with a BA in studio art and Chinese.  Her work has been included in group shows around the US and in Berlin, Germany.  This is her first solo exhibition in Miami, FL.

The exhibition opens May 2, 2009, from 7-10 pm and runs through June 6, 2009. 

Pyramid Studios is open Monday through Friday 10-5pm.
For more information please contact 305 256 6944 or email studio@pyramidstudiosmiami.com.
Pyramid Studios is located at 8890 SW 129 Terrace, Miami, FL 33176.

What does it mean to be beautiful in America? For years, pop culture has insisted that beautiful women are tall, thin, and blonde. So what do you do if your mirror reflects olive skin, raven hair, and a short build? Hijas Americanas: Beauty, Body Image, and Growing Up Latina offers a provocative account of the struggles and triumphs of Latina forced to reconcile these conflicting realities. Rosie Molinary combines her own experience with the voices of hundreds of Latinas who grew up in the US navigating issues of gender, image, and sexuality. This empathetic ethnography exemplifies the ways in which our experiences are both profoundly individualistic and comfortingly universal.
