Info

The exhibit will run May 14 - June 16 with an artist talk scheduled for Thursday, May 16, 7 p.m. and an opening reception Saturday, May 18, 4 - 6 p.m. The public is invited to attend both events.  The Tremaine Art Gallery is pleased to present the exhibit Chicks with Guns featuring work of photographer Lindsay McCrum '75.Chicks with Guns is a compelling cultural portrait of women firearm owners in America. In the era of both #MeToo and pervasive gun violence in the United States, Lindsay McCrum has created a timely series of powerful and unexpected portraits. The work examines issues of self-image and gender through the visual conventions of portraiture and fashion. McCrum neither glorifies nor vilifies her subjects but finds an elusive diversity. The firearms presented here are not superimposed props but the very personal accessories of the women portrayed. And it defies stereotypes often associated with the popular culture of both guns and women. Like the 15-20 million women gun owners in this country, the women we meet in Chicks with Guns (their portraits are accompanied by their own words), reside in all regions of the country, come from all levels of society, and participate seriously in diverse shooting activities. By focusing her camera respectfully on this particular aspect of the American scene, gun-wielding women and girls, Lindsay McCrum sheds light on who we are in America today.
