Upcoming & Current Events
May 4 - August 5, 2018
My painting, Vulva Drain $300, is currently exhibiting at the Sesquehanna Art Museum in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. From the Museum organizers, "From Friday May 4 through Sunday August 5, 2018 the Susquehanna Art Museum will present Identity Spectrum, a juried exhibition in the Lobby Gallery and Vault. As one of the fundamental aspects of personal identity, gender has been examined by artists throughout history. Society is experiencing the increased politicization of identity expression while contemporary boundaries and norms are constantly shifting. Works selected for this exhibition provide unique perspectives on individual expression and the definition of gender, both visually and conceptually."
May 31 - July 15, 2018
Two of my paintings, Sami American and Sami Reindeer, will be shown in Persistence, a juried exhibition of original works created by female artists residing in NorCal at the Museum of Northern California Art.
To Be Heard
June 2-19, 2018
My painting, America: She Was Asking For It will be shown in Woodstock, Illinois at The Old Courthouse Arts Center, as part of To Be Heard. From the organizers: "This exhibition focuses on controversial artwork and the power artists have to highlight issues and social causes.
This exhibition is an exercise in freedom of speech. The artwork in this exhibition takes a strong moral stance that either depicts intensely personal experiences or reflects and comments on society at large.
Some of the work in this exhibition has been censored, or, by nature of the subject matter would be considered illegal in some countries. Art has the power to evoke strong opinions and challenge the viewer to think about a social issues in a new way - we hope you come, not necessarily to agree with everything you see, but to at understand and acknowledge different points of view."
