Exhibition dates: October 17-22
Reception with the artist: Tuesday Oct. 18 at 4:30 pm
at The UCSC Contemporary Print Media Research Center, Baskin Art Studio G111
Is it a Choice? showcases a series of screen and relief prints that reveal the harsh reality following the supreme court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. As our government begins to turn the clock back to 1950, it’s important to stand up for those who have lost the rights to their own body. Inspired by popular magazine covers from the 1950s, these prints hope to make a statement as bold enough as the supreme court’s decision.
Shelby Dinh is a recent alumni of UCSC and graduated with a BA in Art and a BA in Economics. Printmaking became an instant passion for Shelby after discovering it in 2019 through the intro printmaking class on campus. After trying a hand at each printmaking medium, she found that relief and screen printing were the mediums she was most drawn too. Personal life experiences are what inspires her the most to create. She now lives in San Francisco where she hopes to grow and continue her art practice.
