Saturday is bananas!

Written by kate

First of all, I will have my shibori booth opening for business at the Thompson Park Arts and Music Fest at the at the park’s Creative Center in Lincroft (near Brookdale Community College) at 10am-5pm.  I will have an array of earth friendly linens for sale, as well as some original art.  I will also have an indigo vat on site for dyeing!  Yes, you can learn basic shibori techniques and take your lovely work home with you for a small price – that’s just to DYE for!



Then, I will be at the opening of A Womb With A View in Jersey City…. here is the full press release!

A Womb With A View: Opening Reception
Saturday, May 6th, 5-8pm
Inner Space: A Chamber Gallery
175 Duncan Ave. Unit 2
Jersey City, NJ 07306
Co-directed by: Aryna Petrashenko & Robert Long
Phone: 972-567-5801

Inner Space: A Chamber Gallery & The Vagilante are proud to present the group exhibition, A Womb With A View. The Vagilante has selected works which aim to examine, the intersections of culture, politics, economics, race, gender and/or sexual identity through a contemporary feminist lens.

About the curator:
The Vagilante is a feminist human rights superhero with a prominent mons pubis. Fighting fear & hatred through joyous resistance.

Curatorial Statement:
The world is almost 50% women…. and 51% of the population of the United States, but for some reason the female gender and the experience of being female is discounted on so many social levels.

This group art show is meant to create a snap shot of “femaleness” in 2017. I am interested in the internal world of today’s female and female identifying individuals. What are our struggles? Fears? Joys? Secrets? What are we shouting from the rooftops? I am excited to see a narrative develop through the commonalities and differences of each story, as told through visual representation.

The name and theme of this group show is an intentional double entendre. It is meant to induce the idea of seeing out of and into, the womb.

What are our struggles? Fears? Joys? Secrets? What are we shouting from the rooftops?
