Pilar Nidal artwork for 100 Dresses Project

Portland, Maine artist Crystal Cawley imagined and organized the exhibition that pays homage to Eleanor Estes' classic children's book, The Hundred Dresses. The book explores themes of acceptance, inclusion, art, empathy and standing up for what is right. Cawley printed 200 letterpress, yellow dresses and invited 200 artists to design their pattern to be included in this non-juried and collective exhibition.

Salted Pink Sculpture
Linda Leslie Brown's work indicates her delight in a variety of practices, including sculpture, installation, and painting. Her work engages the interdependent relationships between nature, objects, and human creative perception. Brown's recent multi-media sculptural works are rife with allusions to the body. At the same time, they suggest the plastic, provisional, an uncertain world of a new and transgenic nature, where corporeal and mechanical entities recombine.
