A monotype by Sarah Smelser was included in the Nasty Women Exhibition, January 12 – 15th at the Knockdown Center, Maspeth, Queens, NYC. The show was “a group exhibition that serves to demonstrate solidarity among artists who identify with being a Nasty Woman in the face of threats to roll back women’s rights, individual rights, and abortion rights”. Proceeds from the show raised more than $35,000 to benefit Planned Parenthood. This exhibition was the first of at least twenty seven similarly themed and titled shows that will take place in venues across the United States and as far away as Brussels, Melbourne and Amsterdam in the coming months. The exhibition received a lot of press, including notices in the Huffington Post and Hyperallergic.
