Scottsdale Sticker art exhibition explores gender roles

Using stickers from the “pink aisles” of toy and craft stores, Tempe-based artist Malena Barnhart has created art pieces that explore the differences in stickers for boys and girls. “Stickers for boys tend toward the functional. There are often doctors, firefighters, construction equipment and vehicles in this type of imagery,” Barnhart said. “Stickers for girls are often visually appealing but more problematic in content. Girl stickers feature hearts, flowers, prey animals, princess paraphernalia, fashion accessories and female bodies.” “Sticker Traps,” Barnhart’s new exhibition in the Gallery @ Appaloosa Library in Scottsdale, explores gender roles through common “mass culture residue.” Barnhart will discuss her exhibition.
