36th annual WVOL at Foundry Theater
- Published: April 9, 2015
The 36th Annual Women’s Voices Out Loud will take place on Saturday, April 11, at 7 p.m. in the Foundry Theater, at Antioch College.
The annual event features visual and performance art from local women and women-identifie people. A gallery at the Foundry Theater will feature artwork and is available for viewing before the show and during intermission.
It will be the first year the show will be at the Foundry Theater. Last year, the event was staged at the Herndon Gallery after many years at the John Bryan Community Center, the site of controversy in 2012 when village employees took offense to nude artwork in the exhibition.
The Women’s Voices Out Loud event had its roots in a late-1970s newspaper column in the Yellow Springs News that was called “Women’s Voices” and featured such local women as Jean Hudson, Joan Margaret, Dorothy Smith and Susan Carpenter. That group, which also started the Yellow Springs Chapter of the Feminist Writer’s Guild, decided to “go out loud,” in the words of Carpenter, with an annual event.
