Art Update: Group Show / by Jamie Espino

I finally started working on my project for a group show I'm in next month at Rogers Experimental House.  The main theme is artists that work sustainably which fits into my practices since I work on thrifted/found materials. Basically I'm going to do a pseudo-store front; v minimal tho. I have some mirrors that I'm going to add text to and I'm almost done screen-printing a curtain for the fitting room type area. Mostly I've been thinkin about catholicism (stations of the cross and ten commandments), ader error's flagship store in seoul, and of course the over-saturated trends on instagram that just support disposable fashion. Getting dressed is one of the funnest parts of my day and can be a ritual in itself. Hopefully people will start thinking more about how one of the simplest parts of your day can have a lasting effect on the environment and those who actually make your clothing. If you are in the Northwest Arkansas area next month stop by the opening on February 8th to see my work alongside three other women working in sustainable art :-)
