Art Show + Fundraiser to support Planned Parenthood

Artwork drop off is January 15, 12 – 5 pm

This is the Durham sister of the NYC Nasty Women Exhibition, started by Roxanne Jackson and Jessamyn Fiore.

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, LGBTQ+ rights, and immigrant rights. It also serves as a fundraiser to support organizations defending these rights before the Presidential Inauguration in January. We’re looking for Nasty Women Artists of all ages, races, religions, sexual orientations, gender or non-gender identifications, economic backgrounds, immigrants and non-immigrants.

The Carrack is hosting the exhibition alongside our annual kickoff Community Show. Requirements for both shows are very similar, with the distinction that works included in the Nasty Women Exhibition must be created by artists who identfy as Nasty Women and proceeds from the sale of that artwork will go to support Planned Parenthood. Work submitted for the Nasty Women Exhibition will be distinguished from work submitted for the Community Show either by a label or placement in the gallery, depending on the curators.

Drop off: Sunday, January 15 from 12pm – 5pm.

The exhibition opens on Friday, January 20 with a reception during Third Friday Durham and will remain on view through January 28.

Additional programming TBA.

Pick up: Sunday, January 29 from 11am – 2pm.
