DOTTIR POP-UP SHOP

JUNE 1ST | 10Am - 3pm
QUIRK gallery RICHMOND

 

Join us on Saturday, June 1st for a pop-up shop event with Dottir, a woman-and-mother-owned online shop based in Richmond, Virginia! The pop-up event will be held in the Main Gallery from 10am - 3pm, featuring Dottir’s unique collection of clothing, jewelry, and accessories!


We are Dottir: Dottir is inspired by the natural beauty of Iceland and the strength and fortitude of its women. In Iceland, girls are given surnames based on their mother or father’s first name combined with the word “dóttir”. Iceland is also more advanced than most countries in the world when it comes to gender equality. When you visit Iceland, you’re surrounded by natural beauty and strong women and you can’t help but be moved.

OPENING RECEPTION: Care Less

JUNE 7th | 5pm - 8pm
QUIRK gallery Charlottesville 

 

Please join us in Charlottesville for the opening of Seth Bauserman’s art exhibition, Care Less. Seth’s work draws inspiration from the mark-making, subject matter and frame of mind of his young daughter’s art. 
 

Teach us to care and not to care

Teach us to sit still.      – T.S. Eliot


 

I am careless. My attention is insufficient. Spread too thin over countless things that do not matter or drain me. I want to focus. To concentrate my care on things I choose. To give me attention to the things I love. Things that fill me. That put me back in touch with my self. I want to care less. 

I watch my daughter understand this. You can tell how unburdened and free her mind is. I watch her approach her art with a clarity I envy. She doesn’t care what I think of her drawings. She doesn’t care what it’s about. She just follows her attention and satisfies it. It is perfect in her eyes. 

By borrowing the subject matter of my daughter's drawings I am exploring this space between us. Between innocence and experience. Self-belief and learned self-doubt. I want to better understand how she offers her attention to the world. What she deems important, and what she lets go of. I am hoping she can teach me when to care and not to care and when to sit still.

– Seth Bauserman
