In and Out "Anthem"

On June 7, 2019 the Vashon Island Heritage Museum will open IN AND OUT: Being LGBTQ 🏳️‍🌈 on Vashon Island.  

The exhibit is interactive and collaborative with a series of programs that examine and celebrate the long, quiet history of LGBTQ+ people of Vashon-Maury Island.  Stephen Sila and Ellen Kritzman are co-curators of this wonderful show and I'm honored to have been asked to be part of it.

You might like to participate as a patron of this historic exhibition here- GoFundMe.

I have been working this past week at the studio of my generous and talented friends Ilse and Hartmut Reimnitz.  They are both busy finishing artwork for the all island VIVA Studio Tour, May 4-5 & 11-12. I thank them for making room for me to work on the 10+, 25 x 37 in. images that are my contribution to "In and Out".   

Above are details from Anthem, two large collagraph/monotype prints.  Anthem is my take on songs of pride, self discovery and empowerment that gay friends have shared with me.  In particular Anthem is about a song that showed up on several lists of coming out songs, "Small Town Boy" by Bronski Beat.
