Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center is hosting coloring book artist Jacinta Bunnell as an artist in residence from November 11-14, 2019.
Jacinta's visual art is inspired by miniature people and toys, constructed primarily from recycled materials. She learned to draw from children. She has a huge stash of patterned, quirky, superbly alive paper which she has been collecting since childhood. Among the multifarious pieces are: torn wrappings from Groundhog Day celebrations, colored engravings from encyclopedias for babies, pictures of toads and concerned citizen fliers. Jacinta’s work has been shown at Allegheny College Art Galleries, KMOCA, Woodstock Artists Association & Museum, Albany International Airport, Rosendale Cafe, TeamLove Ravenhouse Gallery, Mohonk Mountain House, and Wired Gallery.
Jacinta has toured the U.S. and Canada with The Sparkle Kids Action Network, The Gadabout Film Fest, Neko Case, Maeve End, Anne Elizabeth Moore, Julie Novak, Irit Reinheimer and Michael Truckpile. She is the author of four coloring books: The Big Gay Alphabet Coloring Book, Sometimes the Spoon Runs Away With Another Spoon, Girls Will Be Boys Will Be Girls Will Be... and Girls Are Not Chicks.
Community members are invited to participate in TWO public events with Jacinta!

On November 12th - Color with Jacinta at our Community Coloring Party! We will have pages from her coloring books available to color with, and copies of her coloring books will be available for purchase.
