      The Washington Street Art Center Presents: Baby It's Cold Outside: an
      experiment in gender, art, and expression
      Curated by EL Putnam and featuring the work of over 20 artists

      RECEPTION: Friday, December 4, 2009, 6 to 9 pm
      ON VIEW: December 5 - 19, 2009
      GALLERY HOURS: Saturdays 12:00-4:00 p.m. and by appointment

      HI-res photos for the press and interviews are available.

      "Baby It's Cold Outside" presents curator and artist EL Putnam's
      vision for a new type of feminist discourse in the arts that involves
      a variety of media, from painting to performance, a multitude of
      viewpoints, and works by men, women, or anygenderwhatever.

      This show is about how each artist does/does not define, dismiss,
      despise, and/or devote her- or himself to "feminism." This show is
      about creating a dialogue concerning gender in art, with emphasis
      being placed on ambiguity and confusion. Instead of creating a series
      of vagina monologues, the works in this exhibit presents a cacophonic
      version of gender discussion in all of its messy glory. Artists were
      encouraged to offend, but to "just be mindful as to whom you piss
      off."

      "Baby It's Cold Outside" is on display at Gallery 321 at the
      Washington Street Art Center during the month of December, with an
      opening reception on Friday, December 4 from 6:00-9:00pm. Normal
      gallery hours are Saturdays 12:00pm-4:00pm with additional viewings
      available by appointment.

      The Washington Street Art Center houses Gallery 321, hosts studio
      space for more than twenty visual artists, and presents exhibitions,
      concerts, film series, and other art initiatives. The Center
      participates in Somerville Open Studios each May and an annual open
      studios and craft fair in December.

      The Washington Street Art Center is between Union Square and Beacon
      Street: a five-minute walk from Union Square and a ten-minute walk
      from Harvard Square (two blocks from Beacon Street). The Center is
      near or on the following bus routes: 87, 83, 86, and 91. Parking is
      free and ample.

        Come by WSAC this Friday from 6-9 for the opening of "Baby, It's Cold
        Outside." The work for this show is quite varied -- from painting to
        video to sculpture to photography -- with the imagery ranging from
        writhing nude bodies to quiet assemblages of everyday items.

        Questions you may be able to answer after attending the opening:

        What do you call a queen with two birthdays?
        Where did Ronald McDonald come from?
        How many pickles in a gallon?
        What did the baby say to his girlfriend?
