I recently helped my partner organize a night of art and activism at the Living Gallery in Brooklyn. As a painter, my partner has always been interested in visual expression and with recent understanding about cat calling and street harrassment amongst our close friends, he wanted to highlight this issue through art making and community. We designed flyers for print and social, wrote a manifest, sourced materials and designed the gallery space to fit our needs. We offered wine and paint supplies to our guests and made art for several hours. Each person pinned their work to a blank wall and we chatted about our experiences. At the end of the night, we took it all down and burned it! The goal was to express ourselves, share and remain present. The production was a lot of fun and the outcome even more so. Here are some photos I took of the event - enjoy!
I've been playing with light and shadows through the snake form, cutting curvy shapes into clay vessels that I've handbuilt and made on the wheel. Also still making snakes :) I'm really looking forward to seeing these bisqued since I'm working with a new speckled clay. Cheers - sarah
