Silence Is Not Always Golden

Abortion has to remain safe. What’s happening is horrific. These new abortion laws won’t end abortion. They’ll just force women into the hands of butchers. Women must band together. Our voices will not be silenced. We Won’t Shut Up.

Gotta Love NYC

Affirmation Is Always Good

Delighted and surprised to see that “I Am Somebody” was used on the reception program cover and other promotional materials for the Violence Transformed exhibit, "Immigration, Migration, Displacement & Community” at Town Common Gallery, Cambridge College. What an unexpected treat

Das Kreuz Der Frauen

I'm very flattered that Dr. Andrea Aschaver used my painting "Destruction" to illustrate her article "The Cross of Women" which is about violence done to women throughout history during wartime. The article is in the Austrian magazine, Panoptica 2019. For those that speak German and are interested here's a link to the magazine. https://www.tirol.gv.at/…/…/Publikationen/Panoptica_2019.pdf

The theme of this exhibit is Immigration and migration, something that's been on my mind for a long time now. Here is "I Am Somebody”

The Remarkable Faith Ringgold

Me with one of my favorite artists, the remarkable Faith Ringgold. This was last night at NAWA's 130th Anniversary party. I showed Faith the gushing post I had written about her in my blog not too long ago. If you're not familiar with Faith Ringgold's work you should look her up. Her paintings are in every major NYC museum. And she is such a lovely person to boot.
