"Hot Ta-Tas!" by Meg Spielman Peldo
Brassiere art that brings smiles is stacked for display in an exhibit at Bismarck State College Gannon Gallery.
Opening reception for photographer Meg Spielman Peldo of Fargo takes place Wednesday, Jan. 18, from 4 to 6 p.m. in the BSC Library gallery. Peldo also plans to visit art classes that day.
Peldo takes a humorous spin in her "No Lumps, Thank You . . . a Bra Anthology" show. The daughter of a lingerie designer for Hollywood Vassarette, she grew up in the 1960s and ‘70s when talk of brassieres was everywhere. Women were either burning them or worrying about the dire consequences of not wearing one. Using photography with pigment on bamboo paper, Peldo has created an assemblage of playful brassieres from a wide variety of common objects with titles such as "Cabranet," "How the Breast Was Won," "Yup, They're Reel" and "Sea Cup."
Peldo graduated from the University of North Dakota and operates Meg Spielman Studio in downtown Fargo. Her work as a fine art and portrait photographer has been featured on HGTV's "That's Clever" artist series and has earned numerous awards and licenses from major publishers of calendars, prints and greeting cards.
This summer, her images will be released in a coffee table book published by Schiffer Books to raise funds for breast cancer charities. The 30-piece exhibit runs through Feb. 15. ____________________________________________________________________________________________
