The subject of women getting harassed on the street by men is the genesis of Tatyana Fazlalizadeh’s exhibition “Stop Telling Women To Smile” at the Charter Oak Cultural Center. the Brooklyn artists interviewed women about their experiences. She made drawings of them, put phrases under the drawings, and put posters up around the city.  Fazlalizadeh’s show is up through April 18.  On Wednesday, April 16, beginning at noon she will run a gallery talk/workshop inviting women to create their own posters.  Register on Eventbrite at www.charteroakcenter.org.

Susan Dunne writes about the show, and about Glastonbury artist Kim Sobel’s show “Begotten Banners.”  Sobel gives her gallery talk at noon, Wednesday, March 26. Dunne’s story is here:http://bit.ly/1ehkpIZ
