In Genesee Center for the Arts and Education's upcoming exhibition "I'm Every Woman," photographer Floyd Gibson explores what female fashion throughout the 20th century meant to the "average woman." Gibson photographed evening, casual, and swim wear from the 1920's through the 1970's as a way to highlight not only how fashion has changed but how it reflected the individual, their positions in life, and society's expectations of female dress. An opening reception will be held on Friday, September 2, with period music and a live "mannequin" modeling pieces from Gibson's project. 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Genesee Center, 713 Monroe Avenue. An artist talk with Gibson and model and collaborator Rebecca Holtz is planned for Wednesday, October 5, 7 p.m.
"I'm Every Woman: Fashion of the Ages" will be on display Friday, September 2, through Saturday, October 29, in the Photography Galleries at Genesee Center for the Arts and Education, 713 Monroe Avenue. Monday, 9 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.; Tuesday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.; Friday, noon to 5 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Admission is free. 271-5920; rochesterarts.org.
