SOMETIMES ART HOUSE
Our first show took place in May 2017 in Lansing's Reo Town. From then on, Audrey assembled a team of 10-20 rotating artists to host parties and interactive art exhibits. The purpose of this group is to empower young womyn, poc, and lgbtq+ indentifiers to finish creative projects and connect with other artists.

Inspired by "Beychella', this femme driven dance party was designed with women of color in mind.In collaboration with Lansing DJ/entrepreneur/promoter, Crystal Moiner, the event featured DJ V (Ann Arbor) and Problematic Black Hottie (Detroit).

HIGHLY REFLECTIVE : SELFIE ART POP-UP
February 22, 2018
This event laid the groundwork for the kind of environments we wish to create. This exhibition focused on identity and how social media allows us to preserve our personal narratives/histories. We showcased 10 artists and had 4 selfie stations. One of the stations was a performance piece where models embodied their online persona inside "display cases". Images courtesy of Kaitlin Grant.

Sometimes Art House was merely an idea until Audrey met New York based artist, Gigi Gomez (aka G2). She approached me about doing a collaborative pop-up show challenging the "male gaze". This was also around the time #girlgaze was circulating the internet . Gigi's fearlessness paired with Audrey's vision for an artist community, resulted in art pop-up show highlighting 9 local female artists. The event drew several inquires about Sometimes Art House and started our legacy in the Lansing art scene.
