Special Event

Women & Things

8/25/2017–8/31/2017

Artist Reception with Anna Moriarty-Lev — August 4, 2017 5 PM

We are here and we hold things in our hands. Those things are tools or coffee or other types of items that we use for making and doing.

I am a woman, mom, wife-- but I am more than these things. I make stuff. Mostly comics, but also portraits, paintings, still lifes, written stories, plays, dances. I also made a human. I love movies. I teach a comics workshop.

This is a tough time. I do not know all the right things to do and there is a lot I don't know. I try. I'm raising my little baby with all the feminist gusto I can muster: teaching him kindness, love, understanding, how to listen and ask questions.

My mom is dead. She was also an artist, a painter. Making these paintings is a kind of calling out to her.
