I RESIST/ I EMBRACE
I am bringing my Ribbons of Resistance project to Bonfire Gallery, Seattle, April 1-May 27, 2017.
Ribbons of Resistance was created in response to the Presidential election. Over 1000 ribbons have been distributed free by mail, and by hand at the Women’s Marches in D.C., Denver, and Seattle. It also includes an on-going photography project “I resist/I embrace” featuring over 54 portraits. A detail of the portrait project is shown above. A tumblr site and instagram site chronicle the project from its beginning following the 2016 election.
Hundreds of ribbons will be available free at the exhibition, along with a selection of the portraits.

BONFIRE Gallery in Seattle’s International District presents ARTRUMPS: Resistance and Action, a diverse group of artists’ powerful response to this unprecedented time of political upheaval through provocative questioning and creative humor.
Throughout history artists have lead the way using their own as a voice of dissent, protest and action for change. The purpose of ARTRUMPS Resistance and Action is to present artists in a variety of mediums, from different cultures and geographical locations, inspiring people with politically engaged artistic expression and points of view. The artists and the gallery are donating 50% of the sale of work to nonprofits of their choice, organizations working for justice, equality, resistance, legal support and change.
“This is precisely the time that artists go to work.” Toni Morrison
