She Inspires: group exhibition at Untitled Space

Added on by kim rae taylor.

I have two paintings, including this one of poet Marianne Moore, from my series, Old Modern,  in the group exhibition, She Inspires, curated by Indira Cesarine at the Untitled Space gallery in NYC. The show opens May 2 and runs through May 26, 2017. The wide range of work honors women who have made a positive impact on the world and includes some notable artists / activists. All artwork in the show will do positive things because a portion of the proceeds will be donated to She Should Run. For more information visit Untitled Space,   Artsy and Art Reveal

Old Modern, solo exhibition

Added on by kim rae taylor.

Another body of work I've been creating on the side is a portrait series of women. It’s an extension of my research, and documents some of the female writers, artists, and creative types of all stripes, who were part of the modernist avant-garde in the first few decades of the twentieth century. The series sheds light on their later years, and I’ve painted them in old age. The exhibition is on view in the campus gallery of University of Cincinnati Clermont College, through March 28, to coincide with Women's History Month. View the portraits here
