August 26 – October 9, 2016.
An all-female, all analog art show at Land in Portland, OR in August-October 2016. Curated by Susie Ghahremani.
Reception Friday, August 26, 2016: 6 – 9 PM
Free to attend, all ages.
Flora gathers artwork by women working in analog media such as graphite, wood, and fabric. By emphasizing works in tactile media, each artist departs from the digital work commonly exhibited by contemporary illustrators bringing texture and intimacy to each original work.
Flora hosts an eclectic combination of fine artists, illustrators, designers, and crafters from Chile and Vancouver to Brooklyn and Los Angeles including several unique Portland-based artists and illustrators: Julianna Bright, Meg Hunt, Courtney Knight, Anisa Makhoul, and Betsy Walton.
Contemporary New York artist-illustrators Coral Silverman, Dingding Hu, Caitlin Keegan, and Jing Wei exhibit signature styles and fresh experiments alike.
Additionally, award-winning children’s illustrator Maya Hanisch (Chile), sculptural artist Hiné Mizushima (Canada), watercolorist Amy Ross (MA), stationer Keiko Brodeur (CA), illustrator Shirley Jackson (UT), miniaturist Evah Fan (CA), and curator-illustrator Susie Ghahremani (CA) explore a wide range of approaches to the unifying theme of the show: plant life.
