Female artists sound off against 'Pink Noise'

No more pink: Female artists reject the "feminine" color at Girls' Club Collection

Female artists confront and reject the color pink's feminine association in "Pink Noise: Flexing the Frequency," opening Thursday, Oct. 13, at Girls' Club Collection. About two dozen local and national artists tackle issues of motherhood, performance, identity and objectification in photos and paintings. The artists include Kate Gilmore, Lori Nix, Peggy Levison Nolan, Lisa Rockford, Jen Clay and Kerry Phillips. Gilmore's "Wall Bearer," for example, depicts six women of different heights and ethnicities, each separated by a wall the color of Pepto-Bismol. Pink turns sinister, however, in Nix's "Beauty Shop," a diorama of a miniature salon with cracked-pink spa chairs, overturned sinks and faded wallpaper.

When: Opening reception 6-9 p.m. Oct. 13. Exhibit ends Feb. 25, 2017.

Where: Girls' Club Collection, 117 NE Second St., Fort Lauderdale

Cost: Free
