A Feminist Art Show
Shinbone Alley, Presented by the Culture Project
Sept. 21, 6:30 p.m., 45 Bleecker Street, corner of Lafayette Street

"Women Present" is part of the citywide, month-long Impact Festival, and the Culture Project's monthly UnfinishedWorks salon series.

'Women Present' is the second show by the Women's Art Collective, a group of emerging, NewYork-based artists who have come together as a community of feminists and friends to be a source of creative inspiration, to encourage one another's visions and to collectively negate the tendency to silence and second-guess ourselves. Personal and political are intertwined in this artistic event comprised of still image, film, performance and dance.

UnfinishedWorks regularly features the work of emerging artists across disciplines. In September and October, in concert with the IMPACT festival, UnfinishedWorks is curated by Zoeann Murphy of the Bread and Roses Cultural Arm of 1199SEIU, and artist Molly Stinchfield.

Bread & Roses (www.bread-and-roses.com) is the not-for-profit cultural arm of New York's Health and Human Service Union, 1199/SEIU. Bread and Roses was founded in 1979 as a cultural resource for union members and students in New York City who would otherwise have little access to the arts. Special emphasis is given to programs that signify and interpret their history while generating new artistic expression.

IMPACT: Where Culture and Politics Collide brings to New York City national and international works in theater, film, dance, music, visual art, comedy and debates with partners as diverse as The New York Public Library and The Apollo Theater. Scheduled to open on September 12th the festival continues through October 22nd with works
by artists, scholars and children designed to provoke dialogue and action and encourage people to participate in the democratic process. Check out Broadcast Live, Chris Stain, Josh MacPhee and Billy Mode on October 10, 6pm at the Culture Project. www.impactfestival.org

DOG DAYS: a dogtown mix

dog days will be a mix tape when it is officially finished. the version i am showing the world via the internet at this very moment is a double-disc limited birthday edition for my dad, Peter Charles, on today, his 52nd birthday! i also made him a delicious vegan chocolate and peanut butter pie.

note: i am still tweaking the mix. after a few listens, i have decided to replace the social distortion cover of "death or glory" with the clash original.

this is a few little parts of a xerox of a drawing that eventually became a silkscreen, for the same installation. (it's also a mouthful).

both of these pieces are going to be part of a drawing + printmaking installation i'm doing for my "printmaking visiting artist" class. the first one is a silkscreen i did of cynthia, 2-color, before it became patches and the face of her latest demo CD. the second is a pencil drawing of megan.
