"We Are In This Together"

After the election, like many, I was filled with a multitude of emotions.  To process them, I began painting safety pins...all oil paintings on 4"x6" Arches Oil Paper. These little paintings were born in an attempt to deal with the election results, meditating on the idea of safe space and the critical importance of allies.  As I shared the work with friends, there was a great interest in acquiring the paintings.  

I chose to create a limited edition print that showcases nine of the paintings, and use the sale to assist in raising funds for the Southern Poverty Law Center.

With the support of some wonderful people and a fantastic, independent, locally owned printing company, IO Labs, I am pleased to offer a Limited Fine Art Print Edition of 100 prints.  

Each print is 12” x 18”, Archival UltraChrome Print on Hahnemühle Bamboo Fiber Paper, the first bamboo fine art inkjet paper on the market.  The prints are signed, numbered, dated and hand titled "We Are In This Together".  I am donating $30 from the sale of each print to the Southern Poverty Law Center.  I have already communicated with the SPLC, sharing the project and a jpeg of the print.

Each limited edition print is $75.00.  Shipping/handling is an add'l $15.00.  
If you are in the Providence, RI area, I will have stock in my home and you are welcome to come by and purchase one.
You can pay with PayPal at the PayPal at the bottom.
To pay by check, just send me an email at gagnon60(at)gmail(dot)com and I will reply with a mailing address.  

The prints will be shipped USPS Priority within a week of placing your order.

This project would not have come to fruition without an amazing community of caring people from Seattle to New Hampshire. Thank you all.

With love,
