"Life in Plastic" by Sarah Shaffer

Join Cornerstone Center for Arts for First Thursday on June 2, 2016 for the opening reception and art show titled "Life in Plastic," by Sarah Shaffer. This show explores society's monumental impact through the form of our tiniest role models. Beyond objectification and the weight of the world's expectations, creating this body of work was a very personal journey for Sarah. She created these paintings using one of her daughter's dolls as a model with the color palette of her childhood memory. These pieces embody her own path to define her self-image and the desire to not pass along physical insecurities to future generations. The opening reception will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Cornerstone Art Gallery on the second floor of Cornerstone Center for the Arts. The show will be on display and open to the public throughout the month of June.
