We are so excited to be featuring the work of Sara Gates, whose limited edition collaboration on the ARTbutt Jane Briefs can be seen here. Sara is an artist, collaborative printmaker, and business owner who works in Brooklyn and lives in Rockaway Beach. She is the mastermind behind Gallery Diorama and in 2006 she founded Kingsland Printing, an artistic-minded, high-end, collaborative screen printing studio which she still owns and operates today--and also where the Jane Briefs were printed!
Fun fact: Sara and I were studiomates at Rockaway Artists Alliance in the summer of 2019 when we first hatched this idea. She was volunteering as an instructor at the print studio there and we spent many an idyllic summer day biking out to Fort Tilden, working in the studio, then frolicking together into the ocean afterwards. And I DO mean ✨frolicking✨...if you grab a pair of these panties don’t be surprised if you feel a bit of that whimsical energy too!
