We are Blue Scarf Collective 

We believe that art can and should be used to promote social justice, change, and empowerment — especially for the disenfranchised. We want to disrupt common misconceptions about feminism. We believe that the act of creating is the act of owning one's own experience. We like to get our hands dirty.

 

Sherry Beth Sacks - Artist

Sherry Beth Sacks is a feminist artist living and working outside of New York City. Working in both painting and sculpture, Sacks' art is firmly grounded in the punk aesthetic and strives for autonomy in not only form but also process. She rejects any formal boundaries or specific patterned authorship in her work by pushing techniques, mediums and forms; the primacy of the work of the art as object rather than product is thus reestablished. It is in this tension between author and object that her works resides.. www.sherrybethsacks.com/
