My two (two!) pieces for the "Magical Girl Heroines: Sailor Moon and Sailor Senshi"gallery show, happening THIS SATURDAY (that’s tomorrow!) at Q-Pop in lovely downtown Los Angeles! The art i’ve already seen for this show looks AMAZING and i’m super pumped to be part of it along with many talented pals and talented potential-future-pals.

Ireel by Flora Borsi

Portraits that simultaneously look like pictorial photos and hyper-realistic paintings. Borsi explains, “A hyper-realist painter aims to achieve a result which looks like a real photographic picture. A pictorialist photographer’s desired result is visually equivalent to a painting.” Her exquisite images seamlessly blend photographic elements with painting techniques, raising intriguing questions about each medium and the way they overlap.

Lian Xiang Ban - Two Belles in Love

Breaking the stereotypes of antiquated opera performances, Two Belles in Love (Lian Xiang Ban), a Kunqu Opera production broaching the topic of same-sex romance, will take to the stage Tuesday at Poly Theater to mark the 400th birthday of its playwright and Qing Dynasty literati Li Yu (1610-1680).

The ancient love story tells the plight of two women, Cui Jianyun and Cao Yuhua, who fall in love due to the admiration for each other’s stunning beauty and literary craft. The work explores their quest to marry the same man in an attempt to stay together.

"Two Belles in Love created by Li Yu 350 years ago is the first opera work that is dedicated to the topic of female homosexuality known to us today. By exploring such a unique subject, we want to elevate people’s knowledge of Kunqu Opera," producer Wang Xiang told the Global Times.

I’ve been experimenting with bees and gold ink! Also my scanner crapped out, which is just as well because the ink looks better photographed than scanned.

Women Artists Visibility Event: The Museum of Modern Art opens but not to women artists, NYC on June 14, 1984
Shot by Clarissa Sligh

Despite the increased visibility of women artists by 1984, most were not included in mainstream gallery or museum exhibitions. When the Museum Of Modern Art opened the exhibition the “International Survey of Painting and Sculpture,” with great fan fare, of the 169 artists chosen, all were white and less than 10 percent were women.

Women artists were incensed. The Women’s Caucus for Art and other women’s groups in the area organized to protest the underrepresentation of women artists.

Included in the photographs are Lucy Lippard, May Stevens, Linda Cunningham, Emma Amos, Sabra Moore, Sharon Jaddis, and Alida Walsh. The posters were pasted all over Soho, a vastly different place from the Soho of today.
