Embodied Beauty: Opening Reception and Artist's Presentation

  • Hunter Museum of American Art 10 Bluff View Avenue Chattanooga, TN, 37403 United States (map)

Join us as we welcome artist Karen LaMonte and celebrate the opening of our special exhibition featuring her work: Embodied Beauty: Sculptures by Karen LaMonte. Challenging the inherent qualities of glass, LaMonte explores the dress form as a metaphor for gender, identity, and the human body.  Embodied Beauty examines her two newest series, Floating World and Nocturnes, through 32 sculptures in various media. The female forms in LaMonte’s sculptures, absent, yet implied through the clinging fabric, raise questions about the role that clothing plays in society. 

This exhibition was organized by the Hunter Museum of American Art in conjunction with Karen LaMonte studios.
