NETTLES Women's Art Image

Nettles Artists Collective is seeking creative women to be part of an embroidery, paint and collage group created by artist Montserrat Vargas. If you have already explored or want to explore any of these three techniques, we will be meeting every Tuesday from 6pm to 9pm at Punto Space located at 325 West 38th Street, New York NY 10018 from January 31st through March 7th.

For more information please email: nettlesartists@gmail.com

Motivated by #theghostlightproject campaign that seeks “to create brave spaces that serve as lights in the coming years”, we decided to actively listen and create a platform for the values that this campaign brought to the surface: collective action, activism and community commitment. Every participant will have an opportunity to showcase their work at our first Nettles Salon Series, which embraces the spirit of the 17th century French salon gatherings which aim to inspire, provoke and engage through conversation. The first 2017 Salon happens March 8th in celebration of International Women’s Day. If you have any specific materials you would like to work with please bring it on the first day of class. Other than that, bring your creativity and we will take care of the rest.

We speak Spanish, Portuguese and English and welcome everyone in our multi-cultural realm.

There is a $25/person per three hours session which will cover space rental expenses, social media marketing for the salon exhibition, basic materials to start the work, coffee, mate and tea.

Nettles Artists Collective busca mujeres para formar parte de un grupo de bordados, pinturas y collages creado por el artista Montserrat Vargas.

Motivadas por la campaña #theghostlightproject que busca “crear espacios valientes que sirvan de luces en los próximos años”, decidimos escuchar activamente y crear una plataforma para los valores que esta campaña sacó a la superficie: acción colectiva, activismo y compromiso comunitario. Si ya ha explorado o desea explorar cualquiera de estas tres técnicas, nos reuniremos todos los martes de 18:00 a 21:00 en Punto Space ubicado en 325 West 38th Street, Nueva York NY 10018 a partir del 31 de Enero. Cada participante tendrá la oportunidad de mostrar su trabajo en nuestra primera Serie de Salón de Nettles, que abraza el espíritu de las reuniones de salón del siglo XVII que buscan inspirar, provocar y participar a través de la conversación. El primer salón 2017 se celebra el 8 de Marzo en conmemoración del Día Internacional de la Mujer.
