Persist

I have been interested in the iconography of the knit Pussy Hats that became a symbol of unity at the Women’s March. Hundreds of thousands of these hats were knit from a simple pattern that someone put up on the internet. Yarn stores ran out of pink yarn, and  the image continues to have power.

I chose the word PERSIST as a positive affirmation.  To continue firmly in the face of  opposition or difficulty, to be insistent, to endure and keep moving forward with our goals and dreams. It is a contradiction to giving up or putting ourselves aside for others.

PERSIST is my newest limited edition linoleum block print. It is available on my website and I will donate a percentage of profits to nonprofits that support women in moving forward in the world. Tell me what you think! How are you moving forward?

Pattern I

I am honored to install my work in the sanctuary of the Waterbury Congregational Church.

Art making is, for me, a form of spiritual practice. A way that I come into myself and make sense of the world and connect on a soul level to a greater purpose. So to have my work in this beautiful New England Meeting House brings the thread full circle! There are lovely stained glass windows whose designs play off the knitted stitches that I explore in my images.

I will speak tomorrow, March 30th at 10:00 during the service.

A reception will follow at 11:15 where I will speak again and be available for comments and questions. Please join us.

The work will be on display through April 30th.

The White Meeting House, 8 North Main St., Waterbury, VT.
