i've had a painting in an art show this month (showing through march 28th). the show is at the west side arts gallery. it is called imago fem and is involved with the v day campaign to support groups that are working to end violence against women and girls around the world.
the show was made up of about 13 artists who all submitted pieces that dealt with women's issues (self-image, abuse, health, women's rights, etc). i had a piece in the show last year too (it dealt with repairing damage and brokeness). this year i wanted my piece to continue with the idea of hope and to express something all women in the world have in common. our insides. our bones. our core.
my piece for this year (an 8x8 gouache painting) is titled "all that you need"
the show is up until march 28th. a portion of the sales will go to the west side arts gallery and another portion will go to the sojourner house of providence, RI (a center providing support, counseling, legal help, clothing, a place to stay, etc for women and their families who are victims of abuse).
if you are in the area, check it out. if not, consider giving of your time or resources to organizations like this in your area. get involved! spread some love around!
