The Pre-Vinylettes: An International Showcase of Women Sign Painters
This year I was asked to contribute a piece of work to The Pre-Vinylettes: An International Showcase of Women Sign Painters, curated by Meredith Kasabian of Best Dressed Signs and Shelby Rothenhofer of Finer Signs. The exhibition featured over 60 sign painters from 9 countries. With the current political climate in the United States and beyond, the exhibition offered a vital feminist statement that pushed back against the common belief that the field of sign painting, like many skilled trades, is the domain of men alone.
The show took place in September and I, along with another 20 or so sign painters, went to Chicago for the show and to paint a series of murals at the Chicago Art Department.
This exhibition was sponsored in part by Better Letters, Right Way Signs, W&B Gold Leaf, and Colossal Media.
