Trumpocolypse: What Now? at the Sacred Gallery in NYC has extended their show until the end of January. The opening was on Jan 20 as a counter-event to the Inauguration in DC. I have a couple of pieces in this show, one of which, a monotype, is shown above. Please visit this really great show of political art from very talented artists.

Protest Posters--UPDATED

Protest Crude Disasters, Linocut

UPDATE: This is what the final linocut looks like. I omitted the oil pipeline from Orange Julius' head since I thought it was too weird and distracting. The linocut is on display at Trumpocolypse: What Now? at the Sacred Gallery in NYC and there is a high-res, downloadable, digital version at elanagoren.com. Thanks to Blond Jenny who posted some shots of the opening on the Sacred Gallery facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sacred-Gallery/126499077405905

This is the initial plan for a 18" x 24" woodcut poster that I may be carrying at the Women's March on January 21, 2017. I'm also working on a more woman-oriented one that might be more appropriate. I can save this one for a more general and/or environmental protest. I'll be working on this for the next couple of weeks. This will be one side of the poster.

The other side will be this:
Silkscreened on foam core. Two very different styles, I know, but without access to silkscreen facilities for the next few weeks, I opted to do a woodcut which I can print in my studio.

Solo Show at the Paramount in Peekskill, NY

I was asked on Tuesday to exhibit my work at the Paramount Hudson Valley theater gallery. The thing is, they wanted the show up by today. So, basically, I pulled together a solo show, designed the posters and helped hang the show in two days. The framed work was packed, delivered and hung by late Friday afternoon and the posters were also printed by then. I have honestly never pulled a show together this fast. Whew!

Quote from MLK

I've been helping Farm Sanctuary, creating graphics for them to use on social media. This great Martin Luther King quote was posted today on Facebook by Gene Baur who is the founder of Farm Sanctuary:


Reflecting on one of my favorite #MLK quotes for some #MondayMotivation.

Tracey and Jon Stewart and Farm Animal Rescue

article link: http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/jon-stewart-tracey-farm-sanctuary

I was at an event last Saturday where Tracey and Jon Stewart were being honored for opening up a new sanctuary for rescued farm animals. The new sanctuary will be an extension of the Farm Sanctuary in Watkins Glen, NY.

The video below says far more than I can about the extraordinary work that the Farm Sanctuary and other NY sanctuaries (ie, Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary). Warning: the video below shows the horrid conditions that these 200 animals were rescued from.
