I'm Kenney Mencher. I'm an artist who left a tenured professorship in 2016 to pursue making art full time. This blog is about art, art history, with a emphasis on human rights. I make homoerotic art featuring bears, otters & other gay wildlife.
2020 has been fraught with incredible challenges and loss. While this is something unique for many, the Queer community has been through moments like this before. And so we are uniquely equipped to address this moment. We have always redefined parameters of time and space. Our embrace of failure, resilience and resistance is our strength, creating possibilities for a new world of liberation and love.
This multigenerational show explores themes ranging from identity politics, to mental health issues, desire and history. The overarching result is a fleshy delivery of Queer manifestation.
Prices for works that are available for sale are listed within the captions for each artwork. 65% of each sale will go to the artist and 35% will go to the Community Center to support our arts & culture programs. If you would like to make a purchase please email John Anderies (firstname.lastname@example.org), who will make arrangements to take your credit card information over the phone and make artwork delivery arrangements.
Do you have something to say? Do you want to workshop your writing with others in community? Our monthly writing workshops and discussions are designed to help develop queer voices via the written word.
