Chien Blond Chien Blond
Christina Blais   •  Stratford, Connecticut, USA More Info
SOLD Chien Blond was inspired by posters for Le Chat Noir cabaret, made by 19th century French artist Theophile Steinlen.

NFSAfter the Charlie Hebdo killings in Paris in 2015, “je suis Charlie” became a slogan of solidarity with the victims, and support for the values of freedom of speech and of the press.  Inspired by women I met during the 2016 political campaigns, I’ve adopted the slogan to signify the bonds between women of different faiths, backgrounds, and status ▶

Mend the Gap Mend the Gap
Jill Kerttula   •  Charlottesville, Virginia, USA More Info
SOLD I was in Washington D.C. for the 2017 inauguration. I rode the Metro on Friday with the crowd headed to Trump’s celebrations, and then again for the Women’s March the following day.

Art is Confession Art is Confession
Jeanelle McCall   •   Lufkin, Texas, USA More Info
NFSSimple flat shapes, with a limited color palette, marry the history of posters with the nuances of modern quilting.

Margaret Phillips   •  Cos Cob, Connecticut, USA More Info
$1500   Buy Now  » Labeling people or groups to degrade, disenfranchise, vilify, or marginalize them in order to promote one’s own agenda is just wrong.  Encountering people as they truly are, unlabeled, can bring us to a deeper understanding of both their realities and our own.

Heather Pregger   •  Fort Worth, Texas, USA More Info

My poster is an advertisement for their bike, which I dream of owning one day.
