Whitney Bushman will present her "The Greatest Joy You'll Ever Know is to Love and Be Loved in Return," exhibit June 10-Aug. 6, 2016. Bushman photographs discarded cross-stitch samplers with the intent of exposing the details of their complex, flawed, unseen backs. Backs that, in terms of cross-stitching, should be as perfect as the front. This body of work addresses social expectations placed on women to create façade of perfection. The artist feels the pressure of social standards urging women to conceal the messiness and imperfections that are necessary to create that pretense.
