We are thrilled, estatic, honored, and pleased as heck, to announce that artist Judy Chicago, whole ideas and work have shaped the feminist art movement (see an interview with her in our Super Issue), has agreed to be our Honorary Chair for sm[art], our fall art auction. Damn, I have nothing else to say at this point, but that it is pretty sweet. And good news to kick off a 3 day weekend. Hope all of you each get something good like that coming your way.
Toni Tabora-Roberts, one of Bitch's new Board members is facilitating this great event in Portland tomorrow afternoon where she will be talking to Roberta Wong, an artist who does installation pieces addressing identity, gender, race and politics, about her work in the current IFCC gallery show, RWONG Ideas.
Artist Tea: Roberta Wong talks with Toni Tabora-Roberts
I am hoping that the B-sides blog won't become a weekly RIP to independent publications - but then again, maybe it will wake us all up, myself included, to the reality that independent media is becoming increasingly more difficult to produce and that we can create opportunites to do something about it, otherwise we'll wake up and it will all be gone. That all sounds fine and good to say and think about and then five minutes later we are all back to our green teas and talking about what happened on Lost last night.
