Women's Wellness - Trials and Triumphs

An art exhibit highlighting stories of challenges and triumphs of women's health.

EXTENDED Deadline:

January 31, 2020

FemArt is proud to bring awareness to our community about women's health and well-being through exhibiting women's work that expresses the many colored ribbons that women wear for their health concerns that have a very high risk factor among black women in the United States. All women share numerous common diseases but health care and environment can impact women differently in our society. February is Black History Month and a time for women to bring awareness of all health risks of women but the time is perfect to bring awareness of the higher risks among black women.  We want to hear from all women's health trials and triumphs and especially women of color who are not always given a voice and want the public to know their high risks.

 

This is a very important show and we need art that can express the impact of the many families who have mothers, sisters, daughters, and friends dying at alarming rates. Please create with passion for cures and healing.  We want to see art that reflects any of the colored ribbons that are seen most often on women and especially women of color.  Let's make herstory and give our health concerns a platform for the general public.

Erin Kendrick is an international artist and arts educator from Jacksonville, Florida. Her color-rich, acrylic ink-stained works of art and transformative installations seek to inspire a dialogue about contemporary spectatorship and the power of language as it relates to perceptions of and about black women. She has exhibited work in museums, galleries and alternative spaces throughout the United States and abroad. After receiving her formal art training at Florida State University (BFA, Studio Art, 1999) and Georgia State University (MFA, Drawing & Painting, 2003), she worked for many years as a Studio Artist and Arts Educator in Atlanta, Georgia. Although, she stepped away from the arts for 8 years to run an event design business (E. Street Design Co.), she returned to exhibiting artwork in 2016 with a renewed drive for art making and a new body of work.

 

She is currently the Lead Visual Art Instructor at Jacksonville Arts & Music School and a Teacher Artist for Cathedral Arts Project. Having taught at every level including higher ed, she was recently named the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville’s 2019 Art Educator of the Year. In 2018, she was voted Best Visual Artist, Best Art Exhibition, and Best Arts Educator in Folio Weekly’s Best of Jax 2018 poll. She has won several grants including the Jackie Cornelius Art Residency Grant, the Lift Every Student Artist-In-Residence Grant, and the Community First Foundation Art Ventures Individual Artist Grant. Erin maintains a studio at CoRK Arts District. Her current initiative, “Artists Types”, helps practicing artists with career advancement by providing workshops, mini-courses, and templates for CV writing, artist statements, proposals, and more. As an educator she lives by Elbert Hubbard’s quote, "Art is not a thing. It is a way."
