‘The Trouble with Girls All-Female Art Revue’ THIS SATURDAY, APRIL 28!

Placida at loom

Plácida at her loom, weaving a manta — a cloth for carrying babies and other fun uses. This was in Patacancha, Peru, a village near the town of Ollantaytambo. The women there have a weaving cooperative to sell their crafts in collaboration with an NGO called Awamaki.

A linda (the pretty girl), Olinda. When I went to set up at the gallery today, another artist asked, “That hat, is that a surgery thing?” No — it’s a hairnet. This girl was working at her grandmother’s tapioca stand in Olinda, Brazil, and mugging for the camera.

Framed prints of these photos will be available for sale at The Trouble with Girls All-Female Art Revue this Saturday, April 28, from 7pm to midnight at The Bubble, 810 NE 4th Ave., Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304. I’m going out of town and won’t be there, but if you’re in South Florida, come out for what looks to be an amazing show! Besides the awesome ladies showcasing their art, you’ve got:

  • Live music by Haochi Waves and Dooms De Pop!
  • Fun Burlesque acts by Aurora Natrix and Sofia Luna
  • Yumminess by Ms Cheezious Food Truck
