A NASTY Winter Awakes at Instar Lodge

“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” Audre Lorde

As we open the doors to 2017 we recognize our country has been temporarily cloaked in an orange toupee representing greed, power, and a hate that threatens what we love and who we love. I ask you to remember two things.

1. Care for yourself—radically like you’ve never done before.
2. Let the beauty you love be what you do.

This is the hard work. Keep your heART full of love, we love you and we love what we have to offer you this coming season.

Join us for FOUR-D’s latest pop-up exhibition NASTY WOMEN HV, the Hudson Valley edition of the NASTY WOMEN exhibition series, created in collaboration with the eponymous New York City-based collective as a response to the presidency of Donald Trump.
NASTY WOMEN HV will feature works by an international group of artists coming together in solidarity to support women’s rights, especially reproductive rights, in the face of an administration that seeks to erode them. Each work in the exhibition will be for sale (prices range from $10-$100) with all proceeds donated to Hudson Valley Planned Parenthood. In presenting this exhibit, FOUR-D hopes to foster a vocal and active creative community in our area, and inspire artists to expand their thinking about the agency of artists and art institutions during times of political division.
Works will be received through open call beginning January 9, 2017 and closing on February 11, 2017. To submit work, please visit the FOUR D website.
Opening: Friday February 24th 7:30-9:00
Closing: Saturday February 25th 12:00-5:00
Cost: Free
Instar Lodge 4 Church Ave. 3rd fl. Germantown, NY 12526
