Femme, an exuberant show now at the Kennedy Heights Arts Center, showcases artists doing one of the things they like best: portraying women. Work by artists of both sexes is on view including Erica Cooper's takes on domestic life with children, witty prints by Beth Goldstein, Velma J. Morris' women portrayed in both straightforward and oblique styles, Jymi Bolden's startling back view of a woman wearing high heels and a chain as well as his spirited series of photographs exploring the distortion called anamorphosis
. Harriet Kaufman's splendidly fashioned, two-piece wood sculpture is called simply “Woman,” and Radha Chandrashekaran is represented by elegant works derived from arts of southern India. On Sept. 9, 7-9 p.m., Kathy Y. Wilson will host a gathering of women poets reading their work (no charge for admission), while on Sept. 10, 10 a.m.-noon, Chandrashekaran will lead an arts workshop.
