Co-organized by local artists Nicole Hulstein and Jacquline Smith; Nasty Women Omaha is a sister exhibit of the Nasty Women Exhibition in NYC.
This group exhibition 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.
This event is a call to arms/benefit show. 100% of the proceeds from artwork sold will benefit Voices of Hope.
Why? Because more than ever we need to stand together!
When? Saturday January 28th, 2017. Time: Tbd. This is a pop-up show, one night only event
Where? Petshop Gallery, 2725 N. 62nd ST, Omaha, NE 68104
This exhibit is entirely inclusive . We want patrons of all ages, races, religions, sexual orientations, gender or non-gender identifications, economic backgrounds, immigrants and non-immigrants to join us.
The Nasty Women exhibition and benefit project was started by Roxanne Jackson and Jessamyn Fiore in NYC with a Facebook post in October 2016 that read: “Hello female artists/curators! Let’s organize a NASTY WOMEN group show!!! Who’s interested???“ The massive response has taken this call to arms into building an ever-expanding network of Nasty Women Artists & Art Organizers that will culminate in multiple exhibitions, all connected at the website nastywomenexhibition.org.
