the grab back art show

I was so happy to be a part of a pop-up art show on Wednesday called The Grab Back! It was all artwork promoting women empowerment. Read more about it on this Vanyaland article. 70% of the sales and 100% raffle went to Planned Parenthood. Thanks to everyone who joined us for such a special event. The show took place on 1/18/2017 from 6-9pm @ Hatch Fenway  Thanks to everyone who come out!

Here is the photograph of mine that was accepted into the show. This a Peruvian woman in the outskirts of Juliaca. Peruvians generally frown upon outsiders taking pictures of the women, so I had to be discreet and act quickly. In a some ways, the elders of the community were a physical representation of what it’s like to live in such a geographically hard place.

Here is the show in full swing. Pun intended. The Hatch at Fenway is a wonderful place to host!
