About the event

Beyond the Curves is a celebration of courageous, outrageous, and trailblazing women. Gallery 40 is hosting a month-long show featuring nationally curated visual art and an evening of live dramatic performance pieces.

Beyond the Curves celebrates women's fortitude, persistence, and strength in the face of adversity. It is about women who have been set aside by the patriarchy or men in their lives, women ahead of their time, women who worked without the proper recognition, women who have been judged or misunderstood, women whose voices may yet be unacknowledged.

As part of the group exhibition, Gallery 40 will feature Lisa Winika's Misunderstood Women Project which seeks to cast light on some unexplored ideas about women that deeply influence the foundational thought process and emotional undercurrent of society.

As a centerpiece of the exhibition, there will be a live performance of intimate  monologues and short scenes that illustrate  the authentic and unfiltered stories of such women. The performance pieces, directed by Deborah Coconis and Chris Burney, are written by local authors and will be performed by actors from the Hudson Valley.

Performance scripts by: Paola Bari, Ellery Cordes, Peter Gil-Sheridan, Supriya Hermenze, Liz Hill, Joanna Castle Miller, Ella Talerico, Margaret Milan Wright
