If you aren't yet on our mailing list, here's the scoop...
Please join Audra Osborne, Briana Cerezo, Jennifer Timmer Trail, Kelli Pennington, Kristina Hruska, Leslie Hickey, and Marico Fayre (aka Small TalkCollective) for our first group exhibition and book release!
We believe strongly in the importance of supporting and empowering one another as artists, entrepreneurs, and women and we invite you into a conversation – both visual and societal – about the strength of joining individual visions in order to speak to broader human desires and themes, including empathy, belonging, memory, and transformation.
We’re Always Touching by Underground Wires opens at Pushdot Studio in Portland, OR with a First Friday reception and book release on April 6th from 6-8pm in conjunction with Portland Photo Month.
If you can't make it for First Friday, come by anytime Mon - Fri 8:30 am to 5:00 pm between April 6 – May 28.
We are also very excited to release our first book together. (Because who doesn't want to shoot a new body of work, plan a show, and publish a book in the span of three months?!)
Seven artists all in one place. Order by 11:59pm on April 6th to get in on the pre-order special! (link is on the left side of the page, under our names)
A few words about the project:
Change is incremental, barely noticed, until it’s sudden and irrevocable. A house slowly ages and wears, until abruptly, it’s demolished and gone. Inside our own homes, we find imperfections and repairs, evidence of former occupants and our former selves. We feel these transitions and make new connections: between a bird discovered in a field and one dismembered by a cat, between the furrows on a face and those on the landscape, impressions left on skin and in memory. We look for change and find its mark. We look at what is, attempting to find the shape of what was.
The book, exhibition at Pushdot, and community conversation at Disjecta are supported by a generous Project Grant from the Regional Arts and Culture Council. THANK YOU, RACC!
