A new exhibit in the East Market District aims to empower women by looking at how the mass media portrays women.
Pyro Gallery presents Human-Nature, Healing with Art which features works by artists Debra Lott and Mike McCarthy.
Lott has been an artist most of her life. As a mother of a daughter and a retired high school teacher, she said she noticed how the media portrays a woman's figure. She hopes her 12 paintings raise awareness and educates young girls and women on reality.
