“The Evolution of a Woman” | Shapiro Studio Gallery

Though glass ceilings-shattered stand alongside obvious inequality, achievements and evolution are still to be celebrated. 

Laurie Shapiro offers us a moment to breathe and take stock of a world in which women hold the highest political positions than ever before here in the United States. Shapiro Studio Gallery takes a moment to celebrate and gather women in Shapiro’s first ever official exhibition, “The Evolution of a Woman.“

Featuring an all-female artist lineup, the exhibition will feature artists such as Ibuki Kuramochi, Annie Wood, Alexandra Carter, Ilaria De Plano, Lauren Jenkins, Alexandra Wiesenfeld, and Mary Margaret Groves among others. Curated by Olivia Mia Orozco (founder of Performative Pop-Ups), and in collaboration with Laurie Shapiro, “The Evolution of A Woman” seeks to both celebrate the past and fantasize about the future.

“The Evolution of a Woman” is not only spotlighting female perspective (which has historically been underrepresented in the arts community and lineage), but it envisions a world in which women are seen in pure equity and appreciation.

In an ever-evolving world, the art pieces will be evolving up until the March 13, 2021 exhibition opening.

Raleigh explores everything from large-scale commercial exhibitions to gratis solo exhibitions showcased by amateur galleries. While her preferences are ever-evolving, her favorite exhibitions include large-scale sculpture or paint, as well as artwork which holds socio-cultural underpinnings. She hopes that by capturing a large array of media and voices (including that of curators and the artists themselves), that readers are able to enjoy and voyeur out of their comfort zones.
