Women Icon Show, PDX

"Annointing The Winds of Chage, Lady Godiva"
by Jennifer Gillia Cutshall
12" x 12" Acrylic on Canvas 2013

Richard and I are happy to be part of the Women Icon Show at Gallery Mini...a new gallery not far from the river on the eastide. 
Mari and Leda have proven that size matters. And in this case the smaller, the better with their lovely liitle gallery.  
This Grand Opening show will feature the work of 23 Portland artists...see flyer at the end of this post.  Stop by if you are around this Thursday evening and fuss over small things (all works in this show are 12" x 12" or smalller).

Richard's etching is so lovely and provocative.  Julia Pastrana was billed as the ugliest woman in her lifetime.  His portrait betrays this notion and begs the viewer to question our notion of beauty.  Aren't our un-enhanced, unaltered differences our greatest glory?  Can the richness of age and grace captivate us?  Can we find the most delicate of lines along the roughest edge?
