YAY! GOOD NEWS! my mom decided to take a spur of the moment trip up to visit me. she'll be here tuesday and i can't wait. we've already set up plans to make some work for The Paper Doll Project and i am so excited about that! it's been great to see how differently people approach making them and i love what she's come up with in the past.
aside from cutting paper dolls, we'll mostly likely spend the entire time she's here drinking tons of coffee and talking about everything under the sun. my step dad teases us that there are enough words in the english language to warrant such marathon conversations. :) it's nice and i'm glad she's coming up. i'll most likely not get any painting done while she's here but i'm more than ok with that. it's good to have family around.
AND MORE GOOD NEWS! i'll be in a show next month at HANG entitled "The Fairest of Them All: Women Artists Considering Social Justice in the Everyday"
Nov 1- November 21, 2008
here's the press release:
"At the beginning of the day she doesn't say in some romantic heroine yell "today I will fight all the injustices of the world!", but as the coffee settles and the many tasks of the day are brought into motion there are moments when indeed she'll look and say "hey that just isn't fair!" and someone needs to say so.
Artist, KC Rosenberg and Hang Art Director DJ Harmon join curatorial forces in an exhibition entitled Who's The Fairest of Them All on view at Hang Art Annex in San Francisco. Featured in this group show are women artists who consider social justice in the everyday. In the real world there are no magic mirrors to help illuminate what cannot be seen. Instead, women trial lawyers, women artists and women activists help give a voice to those who have remained silent and assist those who have been powerless. This exhibition sheds light upon that which has remained in darkness and was spurred on by the San Francisco Trial Lawyers Association (SFTLA) and funded by the SFTLA Women's Caucus."
there will be two receptions for this show. the first is of course the big first thursday art ruckus in san francisco and the second is wednesday november 12th, put on by the SFTLA. i'd love to see everyone at both but if you can only make it to one, that'd be wonderful! i'll be dropping off the work to the gallery this week and i'll definitely give a preview of what you can expect to see a bit closer to the opening. for now i just wanted to share my good news and extend an early invite. :)
these texts are an archive of my life in the San Francisco Bay Area from march 2007 - march 2015. it stands as a record of close to a decade of my life, charting the struggles i faced as an artist, daughter, and lover. messy and chaotic at times, eloquent and poetic at others, these texts are an index i am proud of. it was here in this electric box that i learned how to be honest about my experiences and the person i needed to become. it was here that i first learned the truism that words make the world and how to trust such a beautiful, rife, hard fact.
thank you for meeting me here in such tall grass.
