Nasty Women + Newark Printshop collaborate for one day at Knockdown Center to assist the community in the production of flags, banners and signs – just in time for the Women’s March on Washington on January 21st .
This is a group exhibition that serves to demonstrate solidarity among artists who identify with being a Nasty Woman in the face of threats to roll back women’s rights, individual rights, and abortion rights. It also serves as a fundraiser to support organizations defending these rights and to be a platform for organization before the Trump Presidential Inauguration in January. Started by Roxanne Jackson and Jessamyn Fiore with a facebook post that read: “Hello female artists/curators! Lets organize a NASTY WOMEN group show!!! Who’s interested???” The massive response has taken this call to arms into an ever expanding network of Nasty Women Artists & Art Organizers.
NEWARK PRINT SHOP
The Newark Print Shop (NPS) is a community fine art printmaking studio in Downtown Newark, NJ. Founded in August 2012, our goal is to support the fine art of printmaking by providing affordable and accessible workspace, educational programming through classes and workshops, and exhibition space dedicated to the fine art of prints. Newark is home to one of the most extensive fine art print and book arts collections housed at the Newark Public Library, and we wish to expand on this opportunity to put Newark on the map for printmaking!
