US premiere of SD Holman's show, BUTCH: Not like the other girls, will be exhibited at the Mill Arts Project MAP (Eastworks 116 Pleasant Street suite 137, Easthampton, MA ) from April 4 - May 4, 2014, with an opening party April 4th 7-9pm. BUTCH is a photographic exploration of the liminal spaces occupied by female masculinity in contemporary communities. Holman delineates Butch as "an inclusive site of resistance to limitations on the way women, gender, and sexuality are still defined." The images honor the beauty, power and diversity of women who transgress the gender binary, with subjects reflecting the many sizes, shapes, ethnicities, and styles of Butch. The transversal dialectic of female masculinity is celebrated here -- unapologetic and undiluted. Curated by Easthampton resident of the valley over 20 years, Amiee Joy Ross, the exhibit is free and open to the public. Known in the Pioneer Valley as The Bearded Lady, Ross has been in the area for over twenty years and has been a professional piercer in Northampton and Provincetown for sixteen years at Piercings by the Bearded Lady.
