Emily Lombardo’s new series of works, Soft Butch Blues, explores the artist and her wife’s journey to parenthood. The series of fourteen drypoint prints documents the intimate process from trigger shots to birth to acclimating as a family of three. Addressing reproductive rights, body autonomy, fear, anxiety, and more, Soft Butch Blues navigates difficult subjects with joy, warmth, and refreshing frankness.


“As the Supreme Court is considering reversing Roe vs. Wade, this work is about motherhood, the most complex choice a person can make about their body. More than a dozen states are legislating ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bills which threaten the rights of LGBTQ+ adults, children, and families to discuss their lived experience openly just as any heteronormative person can. Soft Butch Blues is a story of enduring love and blind faith as everything seems to be teetering on the edge.” - E. Lombardo


An opening reception with the artist will be held Sunday, June 5, 2-4pm.
