GAY CITY ARTS - 'FLAWED/DIGITAL WEAVINGS' BY SYNVIA WHITNEY
Through November 11, Gay City Arts (517 E. Pike St.) presents 'FLAWED/digital weavings' by Syniva Whitney.

'FLAWED' started with taking digital images of moles, wrinkles and aberrations of the internal and external bodies of the artist and friends and family. Then woven by hand along with disposable party ribbons, cheap holiday tinsel, industrial plastics, VHS tape, soft cottons, wire and wool. Relationships develop between the microscopic and the macro-scopic, the constructive and destructive, the party and the day after. These pieces tell stories, threaten health, and define identities. They are part of a whole, and yet can be ex-ploded by their role in a person's body: a mark that invokes a sexual power, a scar that is a reminder of a violent past, or a cluster of interior cells that slowly takes over, a presence as hard to imagine as the far reaches of the universe

'FLAWED' is presented in conjunction with Gay City Arts, through which Gay City collaborates with local LGBT artists to galvanize an audience for Queer arts, foster the de-velopment of LGBT artists, and facilitate artistic excellence across a wide range of disciplines, including theater, music, dance, film, spoken word, literary and visual arts. www.gaycity.org.
