About the event

Open through June 12

The Goddess Project: Innocents, features Judy Takács’ colorful, classical-inspired figurative paintings of these heroines through her contemporary feminist lens. Takács’ book, The Goddess Project, will launch at the opening with signed copies available for purchase.

For years now, Chagrin Arts has allied itself with the Ohio Innocence Project, a legal team whose mission is to fight for and free those who have been wrongfully incarcerated, sometimes for decades. They also work to fix the legal systems that convict the innocent.

Figurative artist Judy Takács has been re-imagining the characters from the mythology of all the religions. She seeks to correct stereotypes, prejudices and damaging narratives that haunt us today.

In researching age-old mythology, Takács’ Goddess Project has found many women and goddesses, who were wrongfully punished, held in captivity, and vilified in the eyes of the world. Their fictitious stories parallel today’s headlines. Medusa’s was a #Metoo story. Persephone was kidnapped into a forced marriage. Eve and Pandora were damned for seeking education. https://judytakacs.com/
