The first Pop-Up Sale at Dairy Arts Center March 10, 2017

We're spicing up Month of Photography Big Bad Bettie Style!

We're celebrating Month of Photography Denver in our own bold, brassy, and creative way with Home Connection: an online photography exhibition that spices up the fleeting Instagram Takeover and transforms incredible work into something that lasts.

Home Connection
Online Exhibition & Print Sale
March 13th - April 9th
 only on Instagram @bigbadbettiepress

March 13th - April 9th, @bigbadbettiepress features Home Connection with new work from Colorado photographers Jessie Paige Rowe, Julia Vandenoever, Stephanie A. Lindsey, and Katie Harwood.  These four female artists access ideas of place, loss, and identity and scratch at the surface of their individual connections to home.  

Home Connection unfolds in a unique format -- It utilizes the publishers Instagram feed and allows each artist to temporarily take it over to share their photographic series.  The exhibition then migrates from the screen to the printed page transforming into a collectable handmade Print Set, which includes one signed print from each artist.  The Set is available in a limited edition of 40 and is for sale only during the exhibition at bigbadbettiepress.com for $75 each.

This is the second project for the new independent press who focuses on projects that are bold, brassy, and creative.  Their first curated journal, Rabbit Rabbit, a clever mash-up of art and words, launched in October 2016 with great excitement and was praised for its fascinating concept and imagery as well as its luxurious print quality.  Big Bad Bettie Press is rooted in the value of the tangible and produces books, art objects, and portable exhibitions.

In the spirit of this commitment to creativity and tangible objects, Home Connection is as much a new kind of online exhibition as it is a fun way for people to support photography they love.  The limited edition collectable Print Set is available for pre-sale only during the exhibition.  People who pre-order help to unlock the Print Sets production and become “co-publishers”.  Their names will appear in print and forever be part of the collectable.

During the online exhibition, @bigbadbettiepress Instagram followers will be introduced to new photographs every day.  Launching the take over with her own daily act of picture making is Jessie Paige Rowe. Paige Rowe explores the day-to-day life of her two young daughters and has compiled an incredible collection that echoes the complexities and wonders of childhood.  Julia Vandenoever delicately uncovers an unusual inheritance, her mothers used tissues, and through her grieving process imagines the untold stories hidden in the folds of each tissue.

Stephanie A Lindsey contemplates the psychological and domestic space she faced after a loss and weaves a subtle yet complex narrative together that focuses on issues of place, family and race in American society.  Katie Harwood investigates her relationship with her childhood home focusing on an annual spring cleaning event that Harwood describes as a “ritual purging”, finding links between her personal family history and the “annual airing of dirty laundry.”
