A multi media show organized by female artists for female artists, “Conjuring: She Rises”, came together in honor of the 325 anniversary of the Salem Witch Trials. Women throughout the ages have and continue to struggle with finding their voices as powerful agents of change within society. We created this show to honor a gathering of our vibrant and powerful voices as modern day female artists working and living in Vermont.

Participating artists include:
Christy Mitchell
Beth Robinson
Leslie Frye
Wylie Garcia
Meredith Muse

Morgan Stark
Nyx Black
Athena Kafantaris

They are 18.5 inches tall sculptures that are mounted to a wood base. Hand sculpted using a mix of polymer clays that, when cured, have a very lifelike, pristine quality. Their clothing is white velveteen and 100% cotton to represent their innocence. They are topped with real human hair.

To compliment the sculptures, I collaborated with jewelry designer, Annika Rundberg, in creating emblems of the dangers of wearing your heart on your sleeve.  I chose concept over function using genuine fish hooks. They are SHARP! The most dangerous parts are bound though they have tiny barbs that have potential to getting caught in ones hair – or an embrace. Wear them as a symbol but not recommended for daily wear.

A Little Twisted

Had such a nice visit to A Little Twisted this weekend. I dropped off work to sell in their shop, fell in love with Robert Kennedy’s taxidermy art, had a spirited chat with the owner, got a tour of their metal/glass/wood shop, and watched a gorgeous sunset in the tiny town of Brandon, VT. This shop is one of those roadside attractions you do not want to miss. Even though the gallery is small, the artwork selection is awesome for folks who love outsider art, dark art, geekdom, etc.

So excited to be included in the Main Street Museum‘s “Kunstkamera” exhibit.

The exhibit commemorates the 300th anniversary of the Peter the Great museum in St Petersburg, Russia—the Kunstkamera. The Main Street Museum is re-making the display cabinets in eclectic homages known to many as “cabinets of curiosities.”

My bird dolls and prints will be on display as a part of this celebration of our historical obsession with “natural and human curiosities and rarities”.

“We’ve lost our sense of wonder and participation in museums. We go into museums and are passive,” Ford said. “Wall labels tell us, often, what to think as much as they explain; audio tours shuffle us through; and lines are drawn between the arts, science and engineering of an era, as if they existed completely independent of one another.” So Ford has arrayed in his museum an assortment of the eccentric, the lost and forgotten relics of other eras” – Curator, David Fairbanks Ford, interviewed in Art Notes
