September Exhibitions

September is a big month for me. I’m having a solo show, a series of talks and yarn wrapping sessions at Art House Productions in Jersey City. And McCarty and me are soft launching Sky Garden Gallery…. Come on out and see what Ive been up to since moving my residence, studio and gallery into 150Bay…

Theda Sandiford: Big Mouth

LOCATION: Art House Productions; 262 17th St, Jersey City, NJ

As a woman, I find it is often easier to make my way in the world by keeping my mouth shut. To simply grin and bare it when haters, well-meaning friends or co-workers say or do something insensitive.

With ‘Big Mouth’, I am all of it. The sass, the crass, the erudite and more than that aware. Aware of the language used to quiet me down. To remind me of what is, and most importantly, what isn’t being said.

I Am My Hair: JC Friday

LOCATION: Sky Garden Gallery, 150 Bay Street, PH9, Jersey City, NJ

I Am My Hair is an interactive art installation that explores identity through our relationship to hair. With each participant, the yardage grows, bit by bit. The rope, imbued the essence of each participant, becomes a common denominator amongst us all, HAIR. Join me and see what we can create.
