A great night is in store for those fortunate enough to be at Lethbridge Gallery on Friday, April 9 2021. Attendance is free but there is a requirement to register for the event here. This is an event as diverse as it is technically challenging, where the artist Beth Mitchell will be showcasing her works at Lethbridge Gallery in Brisbane. Images by the artist can be seen here.
According to Lethbridge Gallery, Beth's diverse underwater photography encapsulate the forces of femininity, expressing womanhood in social, environmental and cultural instances. Therefore, her new exhibition 'Firewater' explores the huge changes since 2020 and does so, reaching new levels of technical challenge.
The event is occurring at April 9 at 6-8.00PM AEST at Lethbridge Gallery, Brisbane, at the address of 136 Latrobe Terrace Paddington 4064.

Some further insights into Beth's amazing life and career as an artist promoting such amazing causes can be found here.
Background on art and feminism:
Art and feminism are closely linked yet separate ideas. Wikipedia has a reasonable account of history of feminist art, mentioning how female artists historically faded into obscurity. However, based on the feminist movement, which really got started in the 1960s, a second wave of feminism led to more female artists being more recognised for their work and efforts.
According to The Art Story, during the second wave of feminism, artists would link their work to gender equality and expanded on the work of proto-feminist artists. The effect of feminist art overall, especially when combined with the feminist movement, has been very successful and was an ideal complementary idea for art to be linked to feminism.
With all that in mind, this exhibition is a great chance to see some fabulous art and better understand the feminist theme in art. It's as diverse as it is informative, so by all means register for this free event and enjoy a great evening of art and culture.
