LATINX ARTISTS OF THE ART OF LOVE CALENDAR
We are pleased to feature Latinx artists from The Home Visitor Family Calendar/ Calendario familiar de los visitadores del hogar for our September exhibit.
The calendar is used by home visitors with Spanish speaking families experiencing domestic violence across the state and is sponsored by the WA State Coalition against Domestic Violence and WA State Dept. of Health. Please see http://www.wscadv.org for details about Coalition programs.
The idea to create a Spanish language calendar to promote healthy relationships came from Coalition home visitors, who are multi/lingual and multi/cultural Spanish speakers working and living in Latinx communities in WA.
Each month of the calendar displays an original illustration created by eight different Latinx women artists from WA State. The illustrations were inspired by the accompanying dichos, or sayings.
We are featuring works of three of the calendar artists: illustrations by Amaranta Sandys, Angelina Villalobos, and Yessica Marquez. Please see the video on the Gallery page for their individual statements.
“All people should be able to live and love freely without fear. We believe in the power of art to tell stories and show the impact of love in our communities,” the artists stated jointly.
All works on display are for sale. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for information on purchasing.
