Miss Art World South Dakota Klaire Lockheart invites everyone to honor the end of Women’s History Month on Final Friday, March 31st at No. 7 Center Gallery, 7 Center Street, Vermillion, SD. The celebration includes the opening reception of the Thunderdomesticity: Damsels vs. Distress exhibition. The art reception, hosted by the Packard Group, LLC, lasts from 5:00-7:00 pm, and it’s free and open to the public. Thunderdomesticity: Damsels vs. Distress was juried by Klaire Lockheart, and prints of the selected artworks will be displayed outside on the north wall of No. 7 Center Gallery. This is the second annual Thunderdomesticity party, and guests are encouraged to dress up in post-apocalyptic costumes!
Thunderdomesticity: Damsels vs. Distress is a national juried art show designed to celebrate the strength of all women. The current political climate can feel like the end of the world, but 50 amazing artists from across the United States offer encouragement through their artwork. This exhibition celebrates the heroic characteristics of women, which counterbalances traditional post-apocalyptic narratives that frequently exclude or mistreat women. The artwork is feminist, dystopian, and everything in between! There are over 100 works of art that include photography, paintings, mixed-media, henna, digital art, assemblage, fiber art, drawings, and ceramics. The range of art, from abstract to figurative, from traditional techniques to innovative uses of media, is exciting! These awesome artists know how to create powerful narratives through visual compositions.
The outdoor print exhibition of Thunderdomesticity: Damsels vs. Distress will be on display on the north wall facing City Hall from March 31st through May 19th, 2023 at No. 7 Center Gallery, 7 Center Street, Vermillion, SD. The prints were created by Aaron C. Packard from the Packard Group. Due to the ephemeral nature of the wheat-paste installation, the prints are exposed to the elements and public. Over time, the prints will change, and they will be destroyed in the removal process after the show ends.
