This Friday!! Les Femmes Folles: West Virginia, my first show in my new residence, opens at Monongalia Art Center! Ten women artists (in celebration of Women’s History Month, of course) from WV and Pittsburgh exhibit work inspired by the female figure (my favorite subject of course!). If you are around the area, its worth a check-out for sure….

Other poets reading include: a piece by Kaya Stitzhal read by her grandmother, Judith Gold Stitzel; and area poets Marjorie Fuller, Kayla Sargeson and Bernadette Ulsamer.
Intimates and Fools (Les Femmes Folles Books, 2014): Coupling body art and poetry, Intimates and Fools intimates the complicating pairing of the female form and cultural notions of beauty while playfully seeking to bare and bear such burdens of their weight. Poetry by Laura Madeline Wiseman; body art and illustrations by Sally Deskins. Available on amazon.com.
The show at Ohio University East Campus looks amazing! Great space, Nice people. Got to show off a few pages of “Intimates & Fools” (poetry by Laura Madeline Wiseman, Les Femmes Folles Books 2014) and the “Bodies of Work” collaborative film with Rachel Mindrup and my zines with Scott Blake along with all my other work of course! Wanda would be proud.
Sweet write-up too!
