More Details

To celebrate this momentous launch, Julia Martin Gallery has invited 20 female artists to explore and pay tribute to the many ways in which Chantha Nguon has changed and uplifted the lives of Cambodian women, beginning with her own. Each artist is working, some with actual Mekong silks, to bring their own unique perspectives and visual dialogue to these stories. 

We are honored to welcome the following artists: Elizabeth Williams, Merrilee Challiss, Pam Marlene Taylor, Beizar Aradini, Louisa Glenn, Amelia Briggs, Brooke Gillon, Ash Atterberry, Becca Jane Koehler, Megan Curtin, Brooke Bernard, Jennifer Ward, Alex Blau, Anna McKeown, Virginia Griswold, Lindsy Davis, Julia Martin, Blythe Colvin, Rachel Briggs, and Joan Curry.

Chantha and her daughter Clara Kim, who has been an integral part of so much — including recording the audiobook of her mother’s memoir in London in December — will both be in attendance. Parnassus Books will join us with fresh copies ready for signing, and Chef Molly Martin will be whipping up some Slow Noodles-inspired nibbles.

30% of all proceeds will go to the Stung Treng Women’s Center in Cambodia, 30% to the individual artists, and 30% to cover event and exhibition costs.
