Women Rise from 23 Sandy Gallery in Portland, Oregon. Here's how gallery owner Laura Russell describes the collection:
Women Rise is a new curated collection of artist books at 23 Sandy Gallery featuring books that celebrate women and girls, or shed light on important women’s issues. As we start this New Year, women’s issues are first and foremost on a lot of minds. This collection of unique and limited-edition artist books is a special way to tell the stories of women, to celebrate our accomplishments, and to frame a dialog about many important topics. Once again we use books to highlight the power of artists to change the world.
Also online at 23 Sandy is The Dead Feminists.
Since beginning their Dead Feminists series of broadsides in 2008, collaborators Chandler O’Leary and Jessica Spring have featured 24 different women from history, connecting their words and stories to current social and political issues. The newest chapter in the series is the publication of Dead Feminists: Historical Heroines in Living Color published by Sasquatch, on sale this fall. This exhibition delves into the process of creating both the prints and the book, from original drawings and ephemera to the latest print in the series to be revealed concurrently with the book release.
