"Enough is Enough" by Libby Hintz

I've been working day and night since the beginning of November on a project that took on a whole life of its own.

Women Sharing Art, Inc. is a group of women artists I belong to and we were tasked with creating an exhibition of art around the 100th anniversary of the passing of the 19th Amendment which is: "The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex." essentially giving women the right to vote.

I started doing research and writing about my own feelings about what courage and bravery it took for those women to say they wanted to be able to vote and to do something about it.

"Enough is Enough"
2020
Polymer clay tiles, beads, yarn, metal bits

What would the world look like if no one ever said anything when they felt that something wasn’t right?
What has to happen before someone feels empowered enough to speak up?
Where would we be if Elizabeth Cady Stanton or Susan B. Anthony hadn’t said they wanted the right to vote?

Anger is part of that process.
Some judge their anger and see it as a bad thing, thinking anger is not constructive and so keep silent.
Some become angry but do nothing.
Some use their anger to propel them to take action, to speak up and make changes.
Some consider seeing their anger as a signpost that points to something that is out of balance in the world instead of something to be avoided or ashamed of.

Anger can cover many emotions - sadness, fear, anxiety, cowardice, frustration, impotence, panic.
Anger can feel like a ball in the middle of your stomach, a hard knot, an explosive feeling in your head, or a banging in your chest.
It takes work to unravel the emotions of anger and decide to do something about those feelings and thoughts.

Anger exploration often begins around a kitchen table with your mother, your sister or a good friend. Women often weave the fabric of our lives and society with their emotions, feelings, hopes, dreams, desires, wishes and anger throughout our day, day in and day out.
Know that something beautiful, strong, lasting, useful, life-changing can be created from the anger.

I'm proud of what I've accomplished, I wasn't sure I could do something like this, but I just kept pushing myself, saying, yes, you can, yes, you can.

Our show is called "I AM at IAM" at the Islip Art Museum, 50 Irish Lane, Islip, NY.
Exhibit begins February 1-March 28, 2020.

Museum hours Tues-Sat. 12-4.
Artist Reception March 7, 2020 3-6pm

I hope you can make your way to the exhibit! Let me know if you are going and I'll meet you there!

Comments

I have been visiting the Islip Art Museum for many years. Never been sorry. My group has exhibited in the history room and felt apart of the family. When you receive the Town of Islip Recreation Booklets, take note of the large section devoted to the Art Museum, their exhibits and programs. Keep up the good work.
Exhilarating! Brilliant! Must see!!!

Islip Art Museum is a South Shore gem!
What a wonderful reception for The Art of Meditation exhibition curated by Seung Lee. The exhibit itself exuded an ebb and flow arrangement and I was so pleased that my recent photo-liminal image Morning On Main is pART of the visual tide. The current stARTed as I approached the Islip Art Museum as friends were all arriving and some were leaving. It was great bumping into Ali Rufrano and Sandi Daniel who also had work in the exhibit. I knew both from fotofoto gallery and it was so good to catch up with them. The diverse group of artists brought a wide array of visitors and I was most excited by discussion with Adel Gorgy Contemporary Fine Art Photography who has work in this show and I would love to talk with him again. Most fun was seeing Ray Burns, composer and conductor who had been pART of Bay Shore School District when my own kids were in school and meeting his lovely wife...and discovering that we share special fondness and friendship for Lynda A Moran. I could go on and on but I will just end by saying that this is an definitely exhibition worth checking out! Kudos all around!
