BODICES FOR GODDESSES
Hagerstown Community College will feature the mixed media art exhibit Bodices for Goddesses at the Kepler Gallery from October 5th through the 30th. In conjunction with the fifth IDENTITY CRISIS, 2014, an annual fundraiser in Shepherdstown, WV, the Bodices for Goddesses project was conceived by artist Cynthia Fraula-Hahn and began this year. Fraula-Hahn used plaster embedded gauze to wrap the torsos of local women, several of whom have had mastectomies. These plaster works were then enhanced with paintings and other "beautifications".
