“Sleeping Beauty,” a solo exhibition by fine art photographer Lydia Panas through April 13, Martin Art Gallery, Baker Center for the Arts, Muhlenberg College, focuses on the social contradictions women face.
Each of the 16 color portraits of women, from girls through adults, features a figure laying in a grassy or leafy setting outdoors. With their eyes wide open, the subjects seem to be defiantly staring back at the viewer. A direct gaze from each conveys a sense of interruption and engagement.
“’Sleeping Beauty’ is actually a reversal of the fairy tale,” says Panas.
My husband and I are invited to a social gathering and the host suggests “comfy casual” attire. The evening is going to be a relaxing night that includes pizza and some game-playing. My husband insists on wearing khakis and a button-down. I said comfy casual is sweatpants or maybe jeans, but definitely not khakis and a button-down. This is causing a slightly heated debate. He is not comfortable heading out to meet friends in sweats. What is the difference between casual and comfy casual attire?
