Thank you everyone who has bought work from me in the last few months! Together, we raised $360 for the Wildflower Alliance, $800 for Forbes Library Children’s Services, and $100 for Translate Gender. I also recently donated a set of mugs to the Northampton Parents Center silent auction, and a fancy plate featuring Beowulf was auctioned off to benefit Looky Here.
I spent this summer in the studio making mugs while listening to Beowulf on repeat.

Extraction: Green to the Extreme
Zea Mays Printmaking exhibition
October 4 – November 1, 2020
ONLINE and at the A.P.E. Ltd Gallery, 126 Main Street, Northampton, MA
Zea Mays Printmaking presents Green to the Extreme, an exhibition featuring multimedia printmaking works by 38 artists about the political, social, and personal issues related to natural resource exploitation, including its effect on art making and human life.
The exhibition is associated with a pan-global art project, Extraction: Art on the Edge of the Abyss, “a multimedia, multi-venue, cross-border art intervention that will investigate extractive industry in all of its forms from mining and drilling to the reckless exploitation of water, soil, trees, marine life, and other natural resources.” (https://www.extractionart.org/home).
Zea Mays members were challenged to join this “international art ruckus” with a loud and spirited voice while using only repurposed, plundered, rescued, recycled, traded materials in their art. The artwork in the exhibition ranges from sculpture, to prints, artists’ books, quilts, wall and ceiling hangings and more
Extraction: Green to the Extreme will run from October 4th to November 1st, 2020 at A.P.E. Gallery, Northampton, MA. Gallery hours are posted on the website http://www.apearts.org. For additional information please contact ZMP Director Liz Chalfin at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 413- 584-1783.
Masks and social distancing are required while visiting gallery during gallery hours.
