Sly Grog Lounge hosts Odyssey School’s Body Image Art Show, Feb. 1

Press release from Sly Grog Lounge:

On Feb 1st 2020 from 3pm to 6pm Sly Grog Lounge will be hosting an art opening for a group of students from Odyssey High School.

“During the Odyssey High schools Minimester period, a two week period dedicated to student driven projects. Classmates Jessica Albright, Iris Parrish-Workman, Rose Chameides, Jonah Hauser, Ziah Sperry, Penelope Varley and Sunshine Pugh decided to create a group art project centered on promoting positive body image. “

Artists Statement: “Our canvases are old or thrifted jackets which we have decorated with body positive messages and mixed media assemblages. We came to a consensus on the topic of body positivity because it impacts the widest range of people. Everyone has a body and therefore could relate to our artwork in some way. The focus of our collection of pieces is to promote diversity, inclusivity, and positivity around bodies. While we acknowledge the often oppressive nature of media’s beauty standards and we wanted to focus on the positive aspects of the growing self love movement. Our body of work will be displayed at the Sly Grog Lounge on February 1st from 3pm-6pm. The event will consist of a presentation showing our work, detailing more about our processes and a question and answer forum with the individual artists.”
