Wage On!


WAGE ON! Women, Art, and Money will be the featured national exhibition of the 2017 Women’s Caucus for Art national conference in New York City. Hosted at Ceres Gallery, the exhibition offers a timely opportunity to address the impact of a changing political and economic landscape on women and art through the lens of twenty artists selected by juror Helga Christoffersen, an assistant curator at the New Museum. As she remarked: 
I looked to works that took on issues of woman’s work, rights, and identity today, in ways that speak to fundamental underlying issues in our society that affect us all. This exhibition is an important initiative and an example of a way to bring together a broad range of voices, opinions, and practices under a united and urgent cause.
My grouping of fourteen 'Coin Cunts' was selected to be included in the exhibition which runs through February 25th.


Participating Artists: Torey Akers, Judy Ballance, Veronica Ceci, Pauline Chernichaw, Dorit Jordan Dotan, Palmer Earl, Christine Giancola, Julia Gutman, J.J. L’Heureux, Jessica Mieles, Katy Mixon, B St. Marie Nelson, Suzanna Scott, Ember Small, Genevieve Walker, Leslie Wallstedt, Jill Waterhouse, Anna Watson, Heather Weathers and Diana Zipeto


WCA will host public Artists Reception on Thursday, February 16 from 6-8 pm. A full-color catalogue will accompany the exhibition and is available for purchase here.

Red Coin Cunts


A fresh bouquet of Coin Cunts for the upcoming Valentine season--made with love especially for all you nasty women! This new print features the reds and purples found in my larger collection of inverted coin purses. Women around the world are fighting back and speaking out in multitudes to challenge the rise of misogynist, racist, and ignorant rhetoric that is dominating the cycle of our lives. Your purchase of this print will support my work and a portion of the proceeds will go to the local chapter of the National Organization for Women who sponsored the Women's March I participated in this past weekend.

Love & Empathy


Since November 10th, these words have been ringing in my ears:
To all the little girls watching...never doubt that you are valuable and powerful & deserving of every chance & opportunity in the world. --Hillary Clinton
On Saturday we joined with millions of others around the world for a "sister march" of the Women's March On Washington in Shreveport, Louisiana.

As we gathered on the sidewalk of the courthouse to march we met friendly folks of all generations. Many approached Lizzie to tell her they came today to march for her and for her generation. They told her they were proud of her for marching for what she believes in. They told her she was beautiful. I thank these kind strangers for empowering her.

My daughter is young and on the cusp of womanhood. She has so many questions, she is confused about the hateful rhetoric flying around the news and social media. She wants to do something to make it stop and to show love and empathy towards others.

Together we read the mission statement and like a wave it echoed through the crowd lined around the courthouse. Together we took a first step and we marched. Hear our voice!


Thank you for documenting our family at the march Kristen!

Encaustic Sculpture

 

During the second half of last year I spent a good deal of time experimenting with encaustic paint on three dimensional surfaces. Out of this process two finished works emerged and I've finally gotten around to photographing them for the website. This Spring I'll set up my window box fan to expel those pesky wax fumes and get to work on some more of these encaustic sculptures.
