Glass Ceiling: Limitless View

Bethany Engstrom, Curator

March 30 - April 22

3S Artspace,in partnership with the Women’s Caucus for Art, New Hampshire chapter, is thrilled to present Glass Ceiling: Limitless View, a juried exhibition.   

Glass Ceiling: Limitless View presents a dynamic and carefully curated selection of contemporary artists’ reflections on the concept of the Glass Ceiling as well as the Limitless View that one can have regardless of where you perceive your position relative to the Glass Ceiling.  Artists were asked "Where and how has the idea of the Glass Ceiling affected you?  What joys and/or sorrows do you relate to gender or to society’s notion of gender?  Power?  Potential?  Limitless view?"   80 artists submitted work for consideration, and 13 artists' work was selected, including the work of:  Beverly Alomepe, June August, Rachelle Beaudoin, Sally Bomer, Merill Comeau, Tanya Fletcher, Samantha Jones, Heather Lyon, Aimee Margolis, Annette Mitchell, Laura Morrison, Ashley Normal, and Dayna Talbot.

Glass Ceiling: Limitless View is curated by Bethany Engstrom- a curator, artist, and educator living in Belfast, Maine. She is associate curator at the Center for Maine Contemporary Art in Rockland, Maine and was previously at the Farnsworth Art Museum.  She has taught as an adjunct instructor at Unity collage and the Intermedia MFA program at University of Maine. Bethany received a BA in Art History, her MFA in Intermedia, and an Interdisciplinary PhD in Intermedial Collaborative Practices, all from the University of Maine. She is currently an artist in residence at the Ellis-Beauregard Foundation and she was a 2013 fellow at Mildred’s Lane.
