Iris Goldstein, a long-time member of ARC Gallery, is exhibiting colored-pencil drawings at the gallery in February 2022. Goldstein is always interested in the unusual and offbeat. Though she is committed to nonobjective art, she tries to find visual images that are suggestive and allusive, based on real-life objects or places that are transformed through the artist’s imagination.

The artwork presented in the group exhibition Femme captures full-on the idea that femme for many includes thoughts, feelings, and actions that are innate to how they navigate the world. The exhibition also presents the notion that femme connects to a web of other femmes and queer folks—and that femme is a marker of identity.
