Sonoma County artists respond to election in “The Art of Resistance”

completely new work created by professional artists since the last presidential election. Intelligent, passionate, and expert, it is not typical political art. Artists include Fred Vedder, Suzanne Edminster, Karina Nishi Marcus, Gerald Huth, Christie Marks, Kate Black, Serena Hazard, Michele Botaro, Adrian Mendoza, Sandra Rubin, Michelle Hoting, Caren Catterall, and others. Join us for this powerful show by your local arts community.

Over thirty local artists have created completely new work in response to the recent presidential election for “The Art of Resistance” pop-up gallery in the SOFA Arts District in Santa Rosa.

The Art of Resistance opens on First Friday, February 3, 2017, 5-8PM in the Backstreet Gallery, located behind 312 South A Street on Art Alley.

“I made the announcement to the arts community early in January, and the spontaneous response has been overwhelming,” said Suzanne Edminster, painter at Saltworkstudio and organizer of the event. “There was clearly a need for this show.”

Artist Gerald Huth created his sculptural collages directly after the election. “My parents didn’t flee Europe so I would see this disaster taking place in America today,” he said. 

Popular local artist Tony Spiers said of his Batman figure,”Batman missed the Women's March today (he sleeps in late I'm told), but then, he'll probably be out tonight, (and every night), helping to protect their rights, and fighting injustice wherever he finds it.”

Moving, passionate, and expert, it is not your typical political art.

“Artists are the most sensitive responders to social change. These brand-new works show it,” says Edminster. “We are not sitting on our hands, but creating art with them.”

Edminster and local photographer Adrian Mendoza are also promoting a National Unpresidented Art Day on President’s Day, February 20. “I envision that artists all over the nation will post their art on social media on that day using the hashtag #unpresidentedart. Our president is not presidential, so our art can also be ‘unpresidented.’ “
