Camarillo, Calif., Aug. 20, 2013 – The Art Program at CSU Channel Islands (CI) is pleased to present Gender Cues, a group exhibition featuring CI student and alumni artists. The exhibition runs Thursday, Sept. 5, through Friday, Sept. 27, in the CI Exhibitions Gallery, Camarillo. An opening reception will be held Thursday, Sept. 5, from 6 to 8 p.m.

Gender Cues examines the presence of masculinity and femininity in art. Are male artists capable of producing works that are “feminine” in nature? Can female artists create artworks that are truly “masculine”? Or is representation of gender exclusive to the gender of the artist? Focusing on gender roles, traits and gender characterizations, Gender Cues encourages the viewer to question what makes artwork “masculine” or “feminine,” as well as examine the effect of gender on art.

CI Exhibitions, Camarillo (also referred to as the "Palm Gallery") is a cultural outreach partnership between CI’s Art Program and Camarillo dentist Dr. Michael Czubiak, who has provided a gallery space in his building in historic Old Town Camarillo. In addition to affording CI students the opportunity to exhibit their art, the gallery also presents curated shows of regional artists – allowing the campus and surrounding community to come together in the appreciation of art.

CI Exhibitions, Camarillo is located at 92 Palm Drive in Old Town Camarillo. Regular gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Gender Cues is curated by CI art student Dania Gutierrez. For more information, visit http://art.csuci.edu/, or contact dania.g.gutierrez@gmail.com or the Art Program at 805-437-2772 or art@csuci.edu.
