Change of Name Announcement!
Hello Everylovely human.
I have been busy the last few months and though I will post individual entries for each show, I have been working on 3: Ghost Print Gallery ( RVA) , The Sewell Gallery (EKA), and Fieldday ( Oakland). I am also in the middle of the long and arduous paperwork trail to change my name. Those of you who own and collect pieces of my work as (Ca)Therin(e) Brooks, know i am still very proud of the work I did under that name, and while I have no desire for erasure of my past or work, I would now prefer in future and present tense to be referred to as Therin Brooks, and with gender-neutral pronouns of which there are a variety (like the common They/Them/Theirs.) This move reflects my own desire to live in honesty outside of the gender binary and a commitment to a proactive approach to building a place and a voice for gender variance in our society. I want to thank everyone for there support and big hugs and fun art to come soon!
I found a little holla from Juxtapoz on their website today! hurray!
This is also a moment I want to to take to thank a handful of really solid humans who have been so supportive over the years. I LOVE YOU !!!!!
My new business cards came in the mail!!! I am very excited to eventually leave my studio hybernation so I can have the satisfaction of handing them to someone! I went with the mini moo cards, they are bit pricey but are of incredible quality and even a dunce like me found it easy to order.
I lost my website content, all of it! I was traveling and didn't even notice, and I didn't have a back up of my archives online. So here it is, my life under construction. Bear with me please as I am doing my best to piece together the history of my art career, so if you perhaps have some decent photographs of any of my older work, kittens, or a copy of my bio with my shows in it that is less than 3 years old, please email them to me: Catherinebrooksart@gmail.com.
It was totally worth it.
