TIARA NON GRATA
New Work by Emily Bennett-Beck and Erin Goedtel
Soo Visual Arts Center
September 7 – October 19, 2013

"Tiara Non Grata, explores the beautiful failures in judgment of a society controlled by the fantasy depictions of “real life” in media. Emily Bennett-Beck and Erin Goedtel skillfully create a feeling of disgust hovering underneath the surface of their breathtakingly intricate and even glamorous paintings and mixed media work. This exhibition is both a condemnation and acknowledged lust for the mostly unattainable ideals of beauty perpetuated in society; it is our love/hate relationship with all that glitters."
