Third Street Gallery, Artaxis, and NCECA are pleased to present NASTY WOMEN.
NASTY WOMEN, as curated by Kraft and Parent-Ramos, builds on the series of international NASTY WOMEN exhibitions (nastywomenexhibition.org) originally conceived by Artaxis member, Roxanne Jackson, and independent curator Jessamyn Fiore. Sometimes explicit, sometimes subtle, but always subversive, the exhibition features the work of ten female artists.
As part of the Artaxis’ NASTY WOMEN exhibition, the gallery will host a cash-and-carry fundraiser during the opening reception that will directly benefit the Women and Girls Foundation in Pittsburgh, PA. In pursuit of its mission to achieve equality for women and girls, now and for generations to come, WGF breaks down barriers so that every girl can rise and every woman can soar. WGF supports women in the local community through their three core programs: Femisphere, which reimagines Pittsburgh as an ecosystem where women and girls can thrive; GirlGov, which trains the future leaders of America; and the campaign for Paid Leave for PA, which fights for paid family and medical leave for all Pennsylvanians. 100% of the sales from the cash-and-carry event will go directly to this incredible organization.
