September 12 - October 17, 2020
“HEIDI VAUGHAN FINE ART proudly presents Dollies and Villains, a collection of paintings and objects by visual artist Thedra Cullar-Ledford. The show opens Saturday, September 12th, 2020, from 11 am until 6pm, and is up through October 17, 2020, at the gallery, located at 3510 Lake Street at Colquitt in the Upper Kirby Galleries.
The exhibition is comprised of new works, all created over the last seven months, and speaks to Cullar-Ledford’s emotional processing of the current pandemic, political and social unrest in America, and other struggles through 2020. “Adult play keeps me sane,” says Cullar-Ledford, who is well known for using dolls as symbols of societal roles in much of her recent work. Cullar-Ledford sees the doll motif as mentally soothing.
“I have been painting dollies to make me happy,” Cullar-Ledford explains. “Painting the villains takes away their power. It makes me feel like I’m doing something, anything, to respond to the bad things that are happening.”
The show is open by appointment, walk in, and the HVFA staff is happy to hold virtual consultations for those who wish to see Dollies and Villains from home.”
