Debra Lott’s latest series of paintings cover familiar territory for her — they’re large, and they’re of women. What’s different is the timely purpose and message of the #MeToo movement. “The inspirations for this series are the women breaking the silence of sexual abuse,” said Lott. “The subjects of these paintings are survivors… I’ve integrated white cords that are symbolic of the ‘attached strings’ that have manipulated women. They are breaking.” Her guest co-exhibitors are sculptor Meg White and painter Rachel Gibbs. A reception is being held during the Sept. 7 Republic Bank First Friday Hop from 6 to 9 p.m.
