Jameson Gallery's '#SexyNotSilent' deals with the complexities of being a woman
#Sexynotsilent at Duke University
Visual artist Natasha Powell Walker was struck by the dichotomy required of her as a woman in corporate America: at work she had to be cutthroat and self-promotional, while her friends and family expected her to be loving and nurturing as soon as she left the office. The struggle to deal with these conflicting expectations led Powell Walker to create a series of paintings that represent the many characters women embody and the multitude of faces they present to the world. Powell Walker’s work is now on display in the Friedl Gallery on Duke’s East Campus in a new exhibit #SexyNotSilent. She gives an artist's talk about the exhibit at the Friedl Gallery on Jan. 25.
