Pittmann-Puckett Gallery
Share |

The Pittmann-Puckett Art Gallery was named in memory of two of Affirmations' founding members and strongest supporters, Susan Pittmann and Christine Puckett. The couple was killed in their home by a neighbor in 1992. For more information about their story, visit the Pittmann-Puckett Documentary website.

The gallery is an exhibition and performance space intended for the presentation of work by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender artists. Available to established and emerging artists, especially those whose work speaks to or about the LGBT community, the Pittmann-Puckett Art Gallery is a space for artists to exhibit and sell their work, for presenting benefit exhibits, lectures, workshops, meditation sessions, and as a comfortable meeting place.

Deadline March 6th, 2015
Affirmations is pleased to announce a partnership with Gender-Identity Network Alliance (GNA) and Transgender Michigan (TGMI) in this CALL FOR ENTRY to artists to submit work for consideration for the First Annual Transgender Empowerment & Visibility Exhibition, held in the Pittmann-Puckett Gallery.

Opening on March 26th, this show will feature a wide array of work by area artists. The Pittman-Puckett Curatorial Committee will select 20 to 30 selected works for group exhibition through April 2015. Why is this important? It is said that true art reveals to it's viewer the soul and experience of the artist. The members of GNA and TGMI are therefore ecstatic and grateful to join in the call for all Transgender and Gender variant artists to be a part of the Pittman Puckett opening on March 26. Why is this important? "It is a celebration of Self. Doing, by taking ownership of our existence and moving forward in our journey "
