Daughters of Mercury Opening Reception

November 11, 2015 at 6:00 PM @ Babycastles Gallery

An Exhibition by Janet Bruesselbach
Opening Party

The reception will include a performance by Mya Byrne (and more, contact Janet if you want to perform), and tarot readings by Robin Scott. Calendars and prints of the portraits will be available for sale, as will books by Jeanne Thornton, Casey Plett, and Sybil Lamb. Featuring games by Anna Anthropy, Jeanne Thornton, Eva Ohnoproblems, and Lydia Neon. Janet Bruesselbach is a graduate of RISD and the New York Academy of Art; previous exhibitions include “I Hate Art” and Teleportraiture. The exhibition is a selection from Daughters of Mercury, a series of full-length, large-scale oil portraits celebrating the diverse beauty of trans women. The series plays with the tropes of the female body in representational painting. The subjects collaborated with the artist and chose how to be seen, through the artist’s inventive cyborg figuration. preview & support: daughtersofmercury.com contact: daughtersofmercury@gmail.com
