Another Country Studios is the shared workspace of Lena Wolff and her wife artist and illustrator Miriam Klein Stahl. Every year in December the studio is open for a holiday open house with new large and small works available, holiday ephemera and handmade goods. This year the duo is joined by artist Jaime Knight, flower arranger Haia Sophia of Canopy Floral, with spirits by Fieldworks Collaborative. The event is a partial fundraiser for Sister District, an organization dedicated to turning red states blue in 2018 and beyond. Join us for one day only, on December 17th, 2017.
Taking a cue from the title of an album by the Quails put out on Mr. Lady records in 2003, THE SONG IS LOVE is a month-long residency at the De Young Museum which presents a series of projects that affirm the transformative power of art and collaboration to generate empathy and the sublime in times of political disaster. From October 31 to December 3, 2017, Wolff’s studio will be set up as an intimate space within the museum, where new work will be developed in drawing, collage and fabric, along with multiple collaborations with fellow artists, musicians, designers, craftspeople and the public. THE SONG IS LOVE upholds the power of collective creative activity as an essential wave of resistance at this critical time in the history of the United States -a power is capable of turning the tide away from hate, toward wider affirmative forces of love, imagination and inclusivity.
As part of the residency, Wolff's project FUTURE CHORUS, will perform songs for the political moment at the museum Saturday., December 2nd at 2pm.
