January 12-15, 2017

This group exhibition featured 623 artists and served to demonstrate solidarity among artists who identify with being a Nasty Woman in the face of threats to roll back women’s rights, individual rights, and abortion rights. It also served as a fundraiser to support organizations defending these rights and to be a platform for organization before the Trump Presidential Inauguration in January 2017. All works in this exhibition were available for sale as part of a "cash & carry"system – 100% of the sales will go to Planned Parenthood.

Artists & Volunteers of NWE reported that they SOLD OUT the entire show. A total of just over $42,000 in proceeds raised will go to Planned Parenthood. The Knockdown Center's programing "Stay Nasty" also raised over $8,000 for smaller non-profits benefiting women's rights, bringing the grand total to over $50,000. 

Over 30 other venues around the world will continue to host their own version of Nasty Women to raise money for local organizations supporting women's rights.  We are proud of everyone who was part of this movement!

There were 94 photographers who submitted over 600 very creative images. Juror Karen Marks was impressed by the quality and variety of the entries. "The jurying process was not easy; too many wonderful images and very hard to choose. Being quite decisive I know what kinds of images move me, I do still lean in that direction, but I have been moved by some of these entries as some of these artists have shown me that even when I think I know what I like, I find something new." She ultimately selected 141 images from 61 photographers.

Karen Marks is the Director at The Howard Greenberg Gallery in NYC. After graduating from School of Visual Arts in the early 1980's, she worked with Swann Galleries auction house in the photography department for many years. After leaving Swann, Karen worked for some of the most well respected photo galleries and dealers for over 25 years. Visit the Howard Greenberg Gallery at www.howardgreenberg.com.

Soho Photo Gallery is the oldest artist-run photography gallery in New York City. It was established in 1971 by a group of photojournalists and avant garde photographers who were seeking an alternative gallery space in which to exhibit their work. Please visit our website at www.sohophoto.com.

Creativity (VolsI & II)

 

"Play! is reminiscent of childhood, full of
blurred moments. Toy cameras lend
themselves so well to these youthful subjects.
They're long ago memories of times & places
we hold dear. Play! takes you right back, but
in a dream."

Steph Parke (stephparke.com),
former Editor, Light Leaks Magazine

 

"Play! showcases a raw glimpse of children
in their favorite element. The selection of
candid photos tugs at the emotion and draws
you in to a world of Play! as seen in its most
delightful form. It's a journey with children
and their toys that you'll want to enjoy again
and again."

Randy Smith,
owner of Holgamods (holgamods.com)

Composing with Images Press (CWiP) has compiled photographs taken with toy and lo fi cameras into a new photo book that explores, complicates, and represents in compelling ways the concept of “Play”.  Each photograph is accompanied by a short 200 word reflection by the photographer. All proceeds from the sales of this book will be donated to The Marine Toys for Tots Foundationto benefit children in the areas ravaged by tornadoes in 2011.

Photos in the book were hand selected and edited by Special Guest Editors: Jody Shipka of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and Nic Nichols of Four Corner Store and toycamera.com.

Composing with Images Press is a small not-for-profit, all volunteer, independent book publisher founded by Bill Wolff and Billie Hara. CWiP publishes photo and art books that bring together image and text to engage creative, social, and cultural issues within a particular theme. 100% of all proceeds are donated to charity. Their first books were immediate best sellers and raised almost $1000 for BP oil spill cleanup efforts.

The Editors!

Jody Shipka purchased her first Holga on May 16, 2008. A month later, her first Diana arrived. In November 2008, she built her first matchbox pinhole camera. Since then, she’s come to believe the following to be true: 1. A person cannot own, make or modify too many cameras (Jody currently has 300+); 2. One should never venture out with fewer than three cameras on one's person; and 3. When it comes to cameras, the cheaper and lower-tech they are, the better. When she’s not collecting, making, or modifying cameras, Jody enjoys being an associate professor at University of Maryland, Baltimore County, where she teaches courses in technology studies, visual literacy and play theory.

Nic Nichols is the founder and editor of FourCornerStore.com and owner and editor of ToyCamera.com, the largest independent Toy Camera portal. He has reviewed virtually every toy camera ever made.

Measure: Sue Jenkins

“Measure: Sue Jenkins” is a solo exhibition of 10 color archival digital prints that explore the concept of measuring time, nature, and entropy.

This, the artist hopes, will inspire viewers to reconsider their personal spaces and immediate environments.

Green Piece:
Art & Nature in America

2300 Adams Avenue

April 22 - April 30, 2010

Harmonia ~ a musical water reclaimation sculpture

As part of the Green Piece art history elective course at Marywood University, students within the course were placed into groups to conceive of, document, and create an environmental art project to be installed on campus to help raise awareness for environmental issues through art.

The Aquasonic Group, comprised of Sue Jenkins, Kathryn Bondi, Tony Pachick, and Kelly Ufkin, created Harmonia, a musical water reclamation sculpture. This environmental art project addresses the ongoing global need for a continued source of clean, potable water. Without it, our very existence is at stake. We all must take action now to help clean the air water we pollute by contributing to the production of clean water. Recycled water can be used for drinking, domestic use, gardening, irrigation and re-charging ground water.

View a VIDEO of the SCULPTURE at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DHWyDvp4pIw

Our sculpture is composed of 144 clear glass tubes of varying heights erected directly into the ground roughly 30 feet long along both sides of the walkway between the Art and Science buildings, demonstrating a bridge between the two disciplines in the creation of environmental art. Within each tube are visible layers of natural filtration materials such as sand and charcoal to facilitate the purification of collected water before returning it to the surrounding soil. The water collected within each tube adds an auditory element to our sculpture, inviting both physical and intellectual interaction from viewers, as the tubes can be strummed with twigs (supplied to passers-by in nearby crates) to create a variation of tone. This, we hope, will aid in attracting attention to our greater cause.

About Green Piece: With an eye on the environment, students will study the role of the artist in America--and assume that role--as it has changed from the time of the early explorer naturalists to contemporary earth artists. Co-taught by Professors Linda Partridge and Pamela Parsons, Marywood University's Green Piece course combines art history and studio art methods and is open to interested students of all fields.

Revelations: Seven Illuminations

Graduate Seminar students, representing the areas of painting, clay, photography, and sculpture, collaborated to produce the provocative mixed media works comprising Revelations. In class, teams selected prints from Albrecht Durer’s famous woodcut series based on the Revelation of St. John. They then located the corresponding passages from a worn, 1890 leather-bound family bible.Together these pieces operate as a kind of book, bound thematically to the biblical end-of-days prophecy: the individual pieces serve as chapters. This exhibit offers a re-telling.

Seven Illuminations: Jen Bulay, Skip Sensbach, Sue Jenkins
Materials: Ceramics, encaustic, gold leaf, candles, color photographs, casting resin, twigs
