From Exhibit: Tomboys by Christina Schlesinger
On display at SPARC's Duron Gallery from June 8th-August 16th.

The Tomboy paintings are based on images and memories of myself as a tomboy and were painted on my tomboy clothing: jeans, flannels, and T-shirts. I fought with my mother over wearing dresses. I wanted to wear pants, shoot marbles and ride my bike really fast. I led a little gang that stole comic books from Scannel's drug store. That bright and sturdy tomboy spirit saved and saves me.
