Event Details

On Thursday, October 13, we will partner with the Xavier University Art Collection Advisory Committee and the Xavier University Art Department to present the opening night event of Ruth Owens’ exhibit of paintings inspired by the Baby Dolls, which runs October 3-November 18. Join us in the Administration Building (1 Drexel Drive) at Xavier from 6:00-8:30pm for the exhibit in the Chapel Gallery and remarks by Owens in the auditorium. “My artwork shows exuberant images that dance to forget the poverty, sexism, and racism that plagues their lives…[significantly] these are women exhibiting fierce vitality of spirit by maintaining a tradition that unites the community. It seems that women often suffer the brunt of private and social difficulties, yet the Baby Doll women exhibit an intense life force, social relevance, and extraordinary visibility in their communities” says Owens. This event is free, family-friendly, and open to the public.
