Dishing It Out

waitress image *Dishing It Out: Career Waitresses Across the U. S. A. - Documents the women who race to our tables, quarrel with the cooks and bring humor to the American roadside dining experience. This exhibition focuses on a subculture of women who have been thriving in restaurants and dishing out everything from eggs to insults for decades – the most veteran of them has been waitressing for 60 years! Visual artist and photographer Candacy Taylor began researching career waitresses in the U. S. in 2001, and traveled more than 8,000 miles to find these inspiring women and to document their stories through interviews and photographs. This exhibition has been organized by SUBJECT MATTERS Traveling Exhibitions in cooperation with photographer Candacy Taylor.
Exhibition: From February 14 through April 26, 2009 Main Library, Lower Level, Jewett Gallery
