Hair art on display at Leso
TOLEDO – Hair, an exhibition of artworks exploring hair as a subject, medium, or substrate, opens LeSo
Gallery, 1527 Starr Ave., Friday with a reception from 7 to 9 p.m.
According to the show’s curator Bradley Scherzer: "Our relationship to and with hair is as deep and
vast as its coverage of our bodies. It is a subject of obsession, beauty, and disgust. Each follicle
permeates our skin but also our culture, our identity, our insecurities and confidence. Hair exists as a
measure of time and equally a marker as we move from birth, to adolescence, to old age. And thus, we
cut, color, sculpt, and style it to suit our needs and define all things inherent within it – just, as
we do art."
This exhibition features a diverse collection of artists expressing their relationship with hair.
Exhibiting artists, who work in a variety of media, come from across the United States.
The opening will feature a number of live models wearing the stylistic hair creations of several local
stylists and artists.
Gallery hours will be Saturdays and Sundays noon to 4 p.m. A closing reception with artist talks will be
held March 21 from 7 to 9 p.m.
