‘There Used To Be A Street’ By Dana Oldfather

“I put their bodies together strangely to challenge unattainable standards of beauty and express the anxiety and confusion that arises in reaching for them,” said Cleveland artist Dana Oldfather. “These figures help me come to terms with the uniqueness of my own feminine body, its aging, and my ownership of it.” Oldfather wants you to know being a woman is hard work, and if you are not careful, it can tear you apart. Her solo show explores relationships between women and their partners and their children and with each other. The Carnegie is having an open house reception on Saturday, Nov. 14 from 1 to 4 p.m. Reservations, in 30-minute time slots, are required to attend with a maximum of 20 guests allowed at a time. The Carnegie is also showing Susanna Crum’s “Watershed Globe Project.”
