Exhibit: a new 2017 edition of my “Protest Eggs” are included in the Nasty Women exhibit in New Haven. This sprawling group exhibition will be raising money for Planned Parenthood and will include visual art, performance, and spoken word.
Nasty Women, the storefront first floor of the Institute Library, 845 Chapel Street, March 9 – April 8, 2017.
The eggs were featured in this recent article in the Hartford Courant:
50% of all protest egg sales goes to Planned Parenthood– the eggs are available individually or by the half-dozen. They sell for $200 each or six for $1,100. plus shipping . Custom angry phrases are available, they make a great gift. These are hand-painted wood, signed by the artist. To contact me about purchases please send an email with “protest eggs” in the by-line to: Marthawlewis (at) gmail.com.
I am pleased to be moderating the panel State of the Union as a part of the new series: Cultivating Collectors at the Silvermine Arts Center in New Canaan Connecticut.
Thursday March 30, 6-8pm, Silvermine Art Center Auditorium. Silvermine Arts Center, 1037 Silvermine Rd, New Canaan, CT 06840
“Recognizing the need to develop and cultivate art collectors in our area, and to help further establish the credibility of Fairfield County as a strong arts and cultural community where art is created, discussed, enjoyed, bought and sold, the Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County and Silvermine Arts Center are co-producing a series of panel discussions early in 2017, culminating in an Art Fair in New Canaan in the Spring.
We open March 30 with a “State of the Union” panel review of the state of the business of art collecting and art sales locally and nationally with a panel of local gallerists. The panel includes Fernando Luis Alvarez, Isabella Garrucho, Fred Giampetro, and Amy Simon. The panel will be moderated by Martha Lewis, artist, curator-in-residence at New Haven’s Institute Library, educator and radio host. Aimed at fellow gallerists, collectors and artists, the discussion will review the field, recent developments, the challenges and issues of working locally versus in New York, nationally and internationally. What’s changing in the field? What is needed to make the business thrive?”

A presentation of my work at the
Yale Quantum Institute, Tuesday, April 4 at 3 pm, YQI Seminar Room, 17 Hillhouse Ave., New Haven CT.
So Close I Can Almost Taste It: Transitory Models and Objects, is a part of the Quantum, Art, and Music series of nontechnical talks:
“The Yale Quantum Institute launched a new series of non-technical talks in Spring 2017. The goal of these talks is to complement the Colloquia Series already in place at the institute with subjects related to science and quantum physics but observed from different angles. By attending these lectures accessible to a large audience (made of a diverse population distributed from undergraduates to professors and staff as well as New Haven residents), we are all invited to reflect on how the contribution of science play a role in our daily life.
This series is co-sponsored by The Franke Program for Science and the Humanities, a program at Yale that aim to foster communication, mutual understanding, collaborative research and teaching among diverse scientific and humanistic disciplines. This talk is open to all and will be accessible to students and the wider university public.
