Wheels on Fire

Wheels on Fire

This Deadline Expired: Saturday, December 1, 2018

The National Liberty museum invites people who currently identify as women, people who are non-binary, and people who have a history of being assigned female to submit artwork for an opportunity to participate in the upcoming group exhibit entitled Wheels on Fire, opening on March 8, 2019.

The historically male-dominated tradition of tobacco pipe smoking has given way to a less gender-restrictive culture of marijuana glass pipe smoking. Glass work has also traditionally been a male-dominated field. Wheels on Fire will highlight pieces from the diverse range of work that women in the functional glass art community are creating.

The GlassAccess gallery at the National Liberty Museum seeks to spotlight emerging and established glass pipe-makers in our target groups (noted above) who represent a skillful and boundary-pushing force in art, design, and utilitarianism. We are looking for works that break new ground conceptually and technically. GlassAccess is looking for stereotype-smashing submissions of conceptual, sculptural, high-functioning and collaborative works.

The GlassAccess Gallery at the National Liberty Museum will advertise and promote the artists selected for the exhibition and host a formal opening reception.

Mindy Flexer makes magical realist, figurative, oil paintings. She uses observation and invention to explore identity and family relationships, and the way personal history resides within the larger arc of time. Her current work is about our extraordinary historical moment, when climate crisis threatens all life on earth, and climate justice offers the possibility of global transformation to a just and equitable world. Her visual language of a seamless world of people, animals, and place, is the language of the interconnection of all life on earth. Flexer’s paintings speak about climate in a language personal enough for people to hear it. Her goal is to inspire people to action. She hopes to connect people to themselves and each other, so each person can find their place in the mass movement necessary to create a sustainable future. In this way, she sees her paintings aspart of the great web of healing she deeply believes can save our planet.
