Women: Responding to Women opens on Friday, April 13 for two weekends after the close of Women: Selections from the Do Good Fund. Zane Logan, photography instructor at Greenville Technical College and curator of both exhibits, noticed most of the photographers in the Do Good Fund collection were male. As a counterpoint Logan has invited 10 local women photographers, students as well as professionals, to create photographs in response to Women: Selections from The Do Good Fund. Again the female figure within many of the images will be the primary focus, but in this exhibition, the inherent power dynamics of the photographer will be from a female, not a male perspective. Current events, including the turbulent political climate and the inherent conversations that challenge patriarchal systems and conventions, influenced Logan's selections in this follow-up exhibition.

The Do Good Fund, Inc. is a public charity based in Columbus, GA. Since its founding in 2012, the Fund has focused on building a museum-quality collection of photographs taken in the American South since World War II by established and emerging photographers. Do Good's mission is to make its collection of over 500 images broadly accessible through regional museums, nonprofit galleries, and nontraditional venues and to encourage complimentary, community-based programming to accompany each exhibition. www.thedogoodfund.org
