Exhibition Description: According to the book, Villa of mysteries: Pompeii initiation rites of women by Katherine Bradway, the original definition of the term, “Virgin” describes “a woman who is ‘one-in-herself,’ belonging to herself alone, being her own mistress,” and that the “virgin goddesses symbolized women who were complete in themselves and not merely counterparts of male consorts. They were capable of developing their own wholeness through integration, realizing their separate qualities inside themselves rather than through projection onto other persons to whom they were related.” One in Herself invites artists to present work that expands our ideas of virginity and of what it means to be a woman, “who is one-in-herself.” Works in all mediums are welcome. If you would like to be considered for the show, please submit images of your work and a short artist statement.
