Portland artist Jennifer Finn is seeking “women who love weeds” and “who have a deep relationship with the earth around their homes — and particularly women who have a specific plant that grows repeatedly in their yards” to participate in an art project that will involve being photographed, interviewed, and possibly painted, too.
She adds, “Side note: In order to participate you would have to be willing to let your weed grow in a small portion of your yard so that I can see it, photograph it, and research it.” Due to these logistics, Jenn’s seeking participants in the Portland area only.
“I can’t monetarily compensate anyone for participating, but I’m hoping that we will all learn a lot, that it will be fun, and that it will produce some astounding works of art. And I’m envisioning a Women and their Weeds potluck at some point over the summer,” she says.
