MFA Visual Art alumna, Damali Abrams, debuts new website and performance in Westchester.
About GlitterPriestess.com, and her upcoming performance, Abrams states:
“In the face of contemporary horrors such as police murdering innocent citizens all over the country, and perpetual war all over the world, I am now offering customized homemade herbal remedies for anxiety, rage & other emotional upsets. Even if the whole world seems to be going crazy, we don’t have to! As I continue to work on my own healing process, releasing rage, anxiety, and feeling inadequate, I am ready to step up and share the tools that have been working for me.
If you have also been feeling down or frustrated, angry or anxious, then Glitter Priestess potions, elixirs and teas may be helpful to you too!
This Saturday October 1st, I will be demonstrating how to make lavender honey in an interactive performance installation during the opening reception of an exhibit called Remedy. Visitors can make their own lavender honey to take home! Details below.”

Alexander Gray Associates is pleased to announce the acquisition of Harmony Hammond‘s (b.1944) archive by the Getty Research Institute (GRI). The archive includes correspondence, photographs, original source material for her art, professional papers, publication drafts, editioned prints, original artwork, files and a slide registry devoted specifically to lesbian artists. In addition to the archive, which was purchased by the GRI, Hammond has donated an extensive library of books and other publications related to art, feminism, and lesbian/gay/queer/trans studies.
“Harmony Hammond is not only an important pioneering artist, but a groundbreaking curator and art historian. Her artistic practice, scholarship, and dedication to the history of feminist and lesbian art and issues of difference have made her an extraordinarily influential scholar and artist,” said Thomas W. Gaehtgens, director of the Getty Research Institute. “We are honored that Hammond has chosen the Getty Research Institute to house her archive and I am certain that it will be of tremendous use to scholars.”
The Harmony Hammond Papers document all stages of her artistic career, including photographs, ephemera, and documentation of artwork and exhibitions in which she moreparticipated. Hammond has also included original early artwork as part of the archive. These include a complete set of her editioned prints, more than twenty pieces; two of her earliest paintings; as well as her early woven Hairbags (1972), dedicated to members of her feminist consciousness-raising group, and Shoe Poems (1977). The archive also includes original source material for her imagery, as well as journals with both writings and drawings, and agendas documenting her activities in the nineties.
Her papers also record her role in the feminist and lesbian art movements as writer, curator, and teacher, including her involvement as a founding member of the A.I.R. Gallery, the first feminist co-operative art space in New York City, and of the collective Heresies: A Feminist Publication on Art and Politics. There is also correspondence from many notable artists and writers, such as Louise Bourgeois, Rita Mae Brown, Judy Chicago, Jill Johnston, Ana Mendieta, Kate Millett, Linda Montano, Linda Nochlin, Howardena Pindell, Adrienne Rich, Faith Ringgold, May Stevens, and Faith Wilding. The files of correspondence with Lucy Lippard, Moira Roth, and Arlene Raven are particularly rich.

A survey of work by Vermont College of Fine Art’s Visual Art Alumni

At the apex of College Hill in Montpelier, the campus of Vermont College of Fine Art serves as a meeting place for a multitude of artists uniting from across the country and beyond. Since 1991, through a low-residency format, artists have maintained their artistic practice within the context of their daily communities. This unique experience encourages artists to find inspiration, and maintain a creative connection, while living their lives in a practical sense.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the MFA in Visual Arts at VCFA, alumni are organizing exhibitions, happenings, and events to take place simultaneously in their given regions. The goal is to strengthen community ties and generate dialogue amongst alumni and the larger community. The New England Region alumni are pleased to announce their exhibition at the gallery at Main Street Art.

Yukiyo Kawano graduated from Vermont College of Fine Arts MFA Visual Art low-residency program in August 2012. Recently Kawano and her collaborators, Meshi Chavez and Allison Cobb, discussed their project “A Moment in Time,” with hatchthefuture.org. The performance brings together Kawano’s sculptural objects “Fat Man” and “Little Boy,” replicas of the atomic bombs dropped on her home town of Hiroshima in 1945, Chavez’s Butoh dance practice, and Cobb’s sound poetry. Each of these artists share a geographical link to the age of nuclear bombs and energy (Chavez and Cobb both grew up in New Mexico where nuclear testing occurred), and within this shared legacy, their collaborative practice lays bare a multitude of questions about what it means to live under the invisible threat of nuclear warfare and environmental disaster.
