Feminist Themed Art Night

The feminist show at Gallery Mini on October First Thursday was well attended, and generated some truly diverse and thought provoking work. I was happy to be included!

You can now see photos from the show on the Facebook event page, here.


Feminist Themed Art Night- ONE NIGHT ONLY SHOW

Join the Amalgamated Feminism group and Gallery Mini on First Thursday, October 1st, for a group show “by artists who are trans and cis women to provide feminist art that empowers and challenges the status quo.”

The goal of this timely event, as described on the FTAN invitation, is “to create an engaging and memorable installation that enhances awareness of feminist issues.”

Amalgamated Feminism is also promoting a drive for menstrual products to be distributed to homeless women- a much needed and under-supported service in the Portland community. Please bring a fresh box of tampons, pads, etc. to put in the drop box!

I will have an assemblage piece in the show (above), entitled “Keep the Home Fires Burning.” It has many fun and interactive elements for you to investigate in person. I have a personally relevant statement to go with it. It could be for sale to the right person. Please contact me directly for more details. I am planning on being at the opening, but I’m not able to visit the entire time.

To see my piece up close & in person, and experience this ground-breaking show, visit Gallery Mini on First Thursday between 6:30-9:30, at the Everett St. Station Lofts, 328 NW Broadway St, Unit #115, Portland, Oregon 97209.

We look forward to seeing you!


My New Storefront

Hey Guys (of whatever gendered persuasion!)… Guess What! I have a new storefront on Storenvy under Laughingnewborn. It’s kind of like Etsy, with a focus on independent artists & designers whose brands tell a compelling story. I’d like to think mine does 🙂
It functions kind of like a social media site, in that you can “collect” items/brands you like and share them with others.

So, go “Envy” my store, if you would plz, thanks!!!

Go to my Contacts page, Here

and it should pop right up.
Or, you can visit:

http://laughingnewborn.storenvy.com

It is still brand new, so make sure to check back regularly, both here and on the storefront, to see what new developments are taking place. Please contact me if you notice any bugs that need fixing.

Yays! – SBA
