Do you remember the poet/artist Carrie Arizona (aka carrieola on deviantART), whose work I featured on the blog a month ago?
Carrie's mixed-media "Cosmic Cradle on Canvas" will be exhibited in "Women, Women, Women" — the 7th annual international women's art show at Raices Taller 222 Art Gallery in Tucson. Click on the image above to read the found poem Carrie has excavated in a torn page from a book and embedded into her collage. (Once you get to the deviantART version, click on the image again for more magnification.)
This photograph of Frida Kahlo painting in bed, from Raices Taller's blog announcement of the exhibit, exemplifies the show's focus on "women artists that are daring both inwardly and outwardly and who continue to make art with the knowledge that art made by women has been largely ignored throughout much of cultural history."
The opening reception is at 7:00 P.M. tonight. The gallery is located at 218 E. 6th Street in Tucson (520.881.5335). Go check out the scene and say hi to Carrie for me. Tell her the man with the blue guitar sent you. Represent, Carrie. Peace out, everyone.
