“Pathology of Glamour,” a curated photography exhibition showcasing fashion portraiture, opened at William Shearburn Gallery on Friday night. It features nationally acclaimed artists exploring the relationship between society and glamour and asks questions about the concept’s many definitions.

Guests at the show sipped white wine and explored the exhibition, which includes work from Jessica Craig-Martin, whose portraits of society crop out all but the material trappings of glamour—designer gowns, a statement clutch, jewels. Standout work also includes a large-scale portrait from Christopher Makos of Andy Warhol, caught halfway to transitioning into full drag, and pieces from Washington University adjunct professor Heather Bennett, who recently had a show in New York.
