Hi Olga, I started doing PMC in 2006. Currently, I do very little of it as I have become a siversmith so I play more with nonclay metal... but when a project calls for it, I use the PMC. You do fabulous clay work, a true talent!
In March 2010, there will be a series of events in Mexico City, Mexico, Los Angeles, California, and other cities, meant to be a ritual of mourning for the femicides in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua: Art as a pathway of opposition and resistance to violence.
We invite you to be part of this initiative of art activism. Below is the link to the blog we have dedicated to this and where you will find the Call for Entries. This invitation is open to all individuals, groups, organizations, artists and activists. The events in March 2010 will include awareness raising creative workshops, intervention actions, plays and performances and the exhibition of the art work received through the call for entries and the resulting art from the workshops. http://unaoracionporjuarez.blogspot.com/
For those who do not live in Mexico City or Los Angeles metropolitan areas, we invite you to organize your own community activity during the same month of March, 2010. It could be an Art Exhibit, a book discussion, a movie screening, a poetry reading, etc. We ask you to include the original title of this event “A Prayer for Juarez,” and to send us your schedule, and later on, photos and documentation, to be included in the blog.
To include your event, or for any kind of issue related, please write to us:
In the US: firstname.lastname@example.org
In Mexico: email@example.com
Creating protest art transcends culture and gender. We are united in a larger community of like-minds and humanitarian goals. We thank you in advance for your dedication and your prayers for the women of Ciudad Juarez. NI UNA MAS!
PLEASE FORWARD THIS DATA TO PEOPLE YOU KNOW
WHO WOULD BE INTERESTED IN PARTICIPATING
Hey there Olga. How goes it this summer? You still keeping busy with all your summer fairs? You taking any time to cool that oven and take a vacation? I'm going to New Orleans with my husband for a week to visit friends and sweat for a week! How about you?
Do you sell your stuff at all these festivals? Are you an artist full time? You must be one busy lady! Hearing about these festivals reminds me how NYC is such a rich and vibrant place. Not that I'd ever forget that. We have our own form of activity out here but there is nothing like N.Y.......Best of luck, happy selling for a wonderful program.
