Beauty Queens Revisited

30 11 2011

The holidays are approaching and while there seems to be a million and one things to do, you should really try and get away from the malls (yes, leave them) and do something that is a little bit more stimulating.

Don’t worry, I have just the cure! It is art!

One such art show is taking place in Water Valley, Mississippi (pretty much Oxford) on Friday, December 9, 2011.

Our friend, Erin Austen Abbott, who we post about all the time, is at it again with amazing photographs.  This showing will feature photographs of former beauty queens.  Living in a culture in which we derive so much importance and status from beauty, I know this will be an engaging exhibit.  Not only will the show these amazing photographs but the actual show is taking place is in an old converted barber shop, Yalo Studio.  Featuring an eclectic mix of art attendees will not be disappointed.

Here is a preview of Yalo Gallery:

Oh wow what a fantastic topic! I bet her pictures are beautiful. I wish I lived near Oxford to see the exhibit.
