About

WHAT IS STIR?

Stir is a collection of works that examines and transforms personal experiences, family histories, and cultural identities into a provoking visual play amongst four artists using a variety of printmaking processes. 

"We celebrate the art of printmaking by converging old and new techniques and tools paired with unique applications to continue the dialogue that we began with last years ROUX exhibition".

Artists, Rab’ea Ballin, Delita Martin, Ann 'Sole Sister' Johnson, and Lovie Olivia collaborate for a second exhibition to mix, stir and incorporate the organic ingredients of fine printing and good friendship. Using materials including plaster, feathers, dehydrated fruits, pillows, hand made paper and more,  the four of us create an environment fit for soul stirring dialog.

This exhibit will be shown for only 10 days (June 28-July 8, 2012) at Gallery M Squared in Houston, TX as a part of PrintHouston 2012.  We need your pledge to make this a kick butt show! (it's gonna be that anyway, but you can help us make it better!) ;-D

YOUR PLEDGES WILL GO TO...... 

  • *A full color catalog
  • *Promotional and marketing materials
  • *Documentary

REWARDS

Our rewards are very cool and all original artwork including: Signed catalogs, hand pulled signed posters, and a unique wooden spoon with a printed image (these were a hit at the ROUX exhibit).

How Kickstarter works:

Through Kickstarter individuals are able to make pledges of any size through the Amazon.com account. Kickstarter is an all or nothing platform. This means if there are enough pledges to reach the goal then the funding will be a go and your pledge will be sent on the day of the project deadline. If there are not enough pledges then no money will be sent at all.
