Friends, I am finishing up my residency here at Drop Forge and Tool this weekend, and culminating it with a small one-night-only exhibition. If you are the area, I hope you will stop by. All works will be for sale. Below is some of the work I have made while I have been here (and you can view much more here on Instagram).

#YESALLWOMEN

08/10/15

Yesallwomen_Flyer2_20150717

Friends, I am writing today to let you know about the #YESALLWOMEN fundraiser. Proceeds benefit the East Los Angeles Women’s Center, which aides survivors of sexual assault and domestic abuse. The event includes both a ticketed event (see poster above) plus an opportunity to donate online.

For the online fundraiser, I have donated a package that includes a framed 11×14 inch original piece of art from The Reconstructionists series pictured below (of Frida Kahlo!) along with a signed copy each of my books Whatever You Are, Be a Good One and my latest book of quotes, Fortune Favors the Brave. Here’s how it works: if you donate $450 to the fundraiser, you get this original piece of art plus the two books!

If you are able to donate any amount to make this venture possible, organizers would be so grateful!

If you live in the greater Los Angeles area and are interested in purchasing tickets to the #YesAllWomen fundraiser (check out that list of artists!), you can get them here.

Have a great Monday, friends!

The Jealous Curator Show at Bedford Gallery

12/08/14

mainwall

You may recall that earlier this year I wrote about my friend Danielle’s (aka The Jealous Curator) fantastic book Creative Block. And recently 20 artists from the book were curated by Danielle into a show at Bedford Gallery: From Blog to Book to Gallery. Last night I attended the opening, and it is a beautiful show with many amazing works. Here are just a few of my favorite pieces(too many to photograph!) and my own work down at the bottom of the post:

All work from the show (if not already sold) is available through Bedford Gallery. The gallery does not have an online shop, but you can call or email at any time to purchase with a credit card. If you are local to the Bay Area, the show will be up through February 1, and I highly recommend a visit! Here are the seven artists (including Danielle) who were able to attend the opening last night: Kate Pugsley, Lisa Golightly, Stephanie Vovas, Danielle Krysa, me, Leah Giberson & Trey Speegle.

One last note: both my book Whatever You Are, Be a Good One and Danielle’s book Creative Block were included in Brain Pickings Best Art, Design and Photography Books of 2014!  Have a happy Monday, all.
