Marriage Equality Exhibition in The OC

Opening up Friday, May 3rd is a huge exhibition and benefit in support of marriage equality. 
I created the artwork (above) for the show, titled "The Knot" - mixed media on wood, plus it is framed in a gorgeous antique frame. It is inspired by history, friendships and vintage imagery. After all, gay couples are not a new phenomenon, they just don't need to hide anymore...
 This is a great cause and filled with tons of different styles of art - come on down and show your support!

Art With An Agenda

Two Day Opening Reception: Friday May 3rd & Saturday May 4th 2013, 6-11 pm

On View: May 3 – May 25th, 2013

At: The Magoski Arts Colony, 223/225 W. Santa Fe, Fullerton, CA 

In 2008, Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriage in the State of California, passed with a little more than 52% of the vote. Fullerton, combined with our neighbors in the northern most parts of Orange County, however, passed Prop 8 by 63%. It is important that those who aim to monopolize love and marriage understand to whom they are denying a fundamental social institution. In a small way this exhibit hopes to further acceptance and understanding through art which is inspired by the belief that all non-exploitative love is beautiful and valid.
