I donated a work of art called South Dakota Liberty to a fundraiser auction hosted by Dakotans for Health. This event is to raise funds to help restore reproductive rights in South Dakota. I made this canvas with fabric I printed with suffragist dinosaurs because it feels like women have been fighting for equal rights since the dawn of time. You can bid in the I Dreamed a Dream online auction for a chance to win this fiber artwork until January 31, 2023.
In a world… where women face countless struggles and challenges, Aaron and I discuss our collaborative Thunderdomesticity art series on the latest episode of the Klaire & Aaron Show. Additionally, we invite artists to submit their original post-apocalyptic artwork to the Thunderdomesticity: Damsels vs. Distress exhibition by February 15, 2023. The opening reception for the show will be March 31, 2023 at No. 7 Center in Vermillion, South Dakota.
Kick off the New Year and join me online for the free Thunderdomesticity Patch Creation workshop through the Unaccredited College of Klaire! I will teach you how to create a Thunderdomesticity skull patch to celebrate the upcoming Thunderdomesticity: Damsels vs. Distress art exhibition. No prior sewing experience is needed. I’ll lead you through all the steps to create a patch that you can use for a post-apocalyptic costume or incorporate it into your own badass artwork! The instructional video along with a printable pattern is available on Patreon with the Unaccredited College of Klaire.
Get your feminist and post-apocalyptic artwork ready to submit to Thunderdomesticity: Damsels vs. Distress, a national exhibition celebrating the strength of women. All artists from the United States, regardless of gender, are invited to submit up to three square photographs of their art by February 15th, 2023. (The original artwork doesn't have to be a square, so cropped detail photos are eligible.) The best artwork will then be professionally printed as 8x8" squares, which I will wheat-paste to the exterior of No. 7 Center Gallery in Vermillion, South Dakota. This public exhibition will open March 31st. For complete details of how to enter, check out the Damsels vs. Distress call for entry. Damsels vs. Distress Art Call
