STILL a Hag
I am proud to have a single and triptych piece accepted into the 2nd Annual Edges & Curves “Close Your Eyes” exhibit presented by The Haggus Society, of which I am proud to be a member (known as Hillbilly Hag).
This year’s theme “Close Your Eyes” will explore wedge issues presented in the public discourse via all channels of media consumption.
Guest Juror, Natalie Abrams
“I don’t think anyone can argue we are living in divisive times. Individual rights, freedoms of person, religion or lack there of are under constant assault. Social and economic inequalities are as staggering as the apparent indifference of those who have the power to make a difference. How do we cope? Do we bury our head in the sand, join the picket line?
“As an artist, we have an added layer of reaction as we question whether or not to address these issues which are significant to us in our work. Art is a voice, active and present. As our society is being redefined before our very eyes, wouldn’t now be a good time to voice our opinions and help it grow into that more enlightened future we’d like to see?”
