Here is information about the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire the play is based on:

The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire in New York City on March 25, 1911, was the deadliest industrial disaster in the history of the city of New York and resulted in the fourth highest loss of life from an industrial accident in U.S. history. The fire caused the deaths of 146 garment workers, who either died from the fire or jumped to their deaths. Most of the victims were recent immigrant Jewish women aged sixteen to twenty-three. [1] Many of the workers could not escape the burning building because the managers had locked the doors to the stairwells and exits. People jumped from the eighth, ninth, and tenth floors. The fire led to legislation requiring improved factory safety standards and helped spur the growth of the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union, which fought for better working conditions for sweatshop workers. The factory was located in the Asch Building, at 29 Washington Place, now known as the Brown Building, which has been designated a National Historic Landmark and a New York City landmark.[2]

Member Spotlight: Judith Z. Miller, artist, writer and spiritualist, will read her erotic writings in "Essensuality: An Evening of Erotic Expression" in New York, New York on Saturday, March 19th, 8:00-11:00 pm.

International Women Artists' Salon is pleased to announce that Judith Z. Miller will be reading her erotic writing in "Essensuality: An Evening of Erotic Expression" at WOW Cafe Theatre, in New York, NY on Saturday, March 19th, 8:00-11:00 pm.

An Evening of Erotic Expression

Sex, love, relationship…
Anger, passion, longing…
Unspoken desires, unrealized fantasies,
Unheard of sensual adventures…

...Essensuality invites out the essence of sensuality. The raw, vulnerable, uncensored, tender – usually private – moments step out into the spotlight to be shared. In poetry, spoken word, dance. Comedy, storytelling, music. Or some genre of your own imagination.

The evening will include: Featured acts, open mic performances, and spontaneous combustion…not necessarily in that order. Comfortable seating in the round, a limited bar, and an unrushed evening of erotic expression. Opportunities to laugh, cry…and blush.

Bring yourself, your friends, your lovers. Your desire, your embarrassment, your uncertainty. It's all welcome here! After all, that's what it is to be a sensual being. And that's what we're celebrating...the sensuality that lives — whether hidden or on the sleeve — of every single one of us.

Saturday, March 19 · 8:00pm - 11:00pm
WOW Cafe Theatre
59-61 East 4th Street, 4th Floor
New York, NY


*Judith Z. Miller lives in an erotic, musical, spiritual universe; she writes as a way of coping with its beauty, sensuality, frustrations and ecstasies. Here in New York, she has read at events sponsored by organizations such as Nehirim, Zeek Magazine, Essentuality, and at venues such as Blue Stockings, The Jewish Community Center, Wow Café Theatre - and late at night to her girlfriends in bed. (extended bio below)

*She's Black, He's Jewish, They're Married, Oy Vey!
Essensuality welcomes back Epstein and Hassan, known on the NYC comedy circuit as The Black and the Jew, a husband and wife comedy team willing to talk about "all things that make us nervous!" New York Daily News has called them "the Burns & Allen or the Lucy & Desi of the new millennium." They will bring their unique blend of shoot-from-the-hip truth-telling and hilarious insights on relationships, politics, families, race and, of course, sex. Epstein and Hassan will reveal how BlackJew Love Technology could save the planet!

*Jeremy Edwards ( writes quirky erotic fiction celebrating joyful sensuality, libidinous urgency, offbeat romanticism, and the pleasures of language and laughter. His novel Rock My Socks Off is an eroto-comedic romp through academia, live television, and a dysfunctional rocking-horse museum. The book takes on a theatrical dimension at Essensuality, as the author performs a favorite chapter in a live reading seasoned with improv and audience participation.

*Performance poet, Aimee Herman, works as editor of erotica for Oysters & Chocolate. She has performed at various reading series including In the Flesh, Queer Lit Carnival and The Red Umbrella Diaries in NYC. She can be read in the anthologies, Best Lesbian Love Stories (Alyson Books), Best Women's Erotica 2010 (Cleis Press) and Nice Girls, Naughty Sex (Cleis). She promises to excite, enthrall, entice and...perhaps even reveal all!

Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door

The Sexual Act: An Experimental Erotic Performance Art Festival

Creative Resource: EzTextiles - Extensive Online Textile Design Resource

International Women Artists' Salon is pleased to start sharing creative resources! We begin with EzTextiles, the world’s largest online source for royalty-free, production-ready textile designs. Today they launch their vintage library!


EzTextiles® Adds 325,000-Plus Vintage Print Images to Popular Online Textile Design Resource
EzTextiles® has added a new Vintage Library with more than 325,000 high-resolution digital swatches to its popular online textile design service. The new library expands the scope of the more than 25-million existing plaids and stripes, prints, and knit designs already available at the site. The vintage designs, which include a variety of colorways and repeat patterns, cover more than 75 categories.

New York, NY – March 15, 2011 – EzTextiles, LLC announces the addition of a new Vintage Library to its fast-growing ( online digital textile design resource center. Amassed over the past decade, the more than 325,000 vintage print images are becoming part of what is already the world’s largest online digital textile design resource with more than 25-million royalty-free woven plaids and stripes, prints, and knit designs. The innovative and unique site provides textile design content developed primarily for the apparel, accessories, home fashions, and related industries. Digital swatches from all libraries can be freely viewed and are available for purchase and immediate download based on a variety of subscription plans. During a limited-time launch period, newly registered users to the site can download 25 sample images.

According to Brian Kaminer, owner of a New York-based merchandising design firm that provides design direction for the U.S. Polo Association clothing line, “EzTextiles offers textile patterns in a convenient online platform at a fraction of the traditional price. When I showed the site to my design team, they knew just what to do and went crazy with it.”

The new library includes more than 75 categories of vintage prints. Vintage images can be searched by category, size, keywords, and other attributes. All of the 300 dpi TIF-formatted images are offered in a wide range of color options and are in repeat. In contrast to the production-ready original designs created for the other libraries on the site, vintage items are provided for use as inspiration and reference only. While the Vintage images are believed to be old and in the public domain, they are not warranted to be free of copyright restrictions.

All libraries provide visitors convenient search and visualization tools, the ability to save images to a personal collection, and visualize and evaluate patterns on more than 500 built-in apparel, footwear, accessories, home fashion, and other product sketches and photos. EzTextiles plans to add more vintage prints as well as new image categories as fashions evolve.

Textile designer Robin Lewellen, who has worked with design teams from Abercrombie & Fitch and Express, shares in the enthusiasm for the site. “Because EzTextiles does a lot of the trend research, the website allows me to spend more time experimenting with patterns and colorways as I develop new lines. Seeing the patterns on other items such as a scarf also expanded my thinking on different applications for the designs.”

EzTextiles has also integrated a blog on the site to enhance the user experience by informing visitors on industry trends and providing free textile and fashion industry news and reports. The new design portal, located at, goes beyond simple distribution of information by providing readers with relevant EzTextiles designs and collections through the click of a mouse.

We are pleased to make this exciting vintage collection and blog available to visitors and subscribers”, noted EzTextiles Vice President Tracy Sano. “After years of collecting and cataloging these images, this important step furthers our goal of providing a user-friendly and cost-effective design tool for a wide range of industry students, freelancers, professionals, and executives.”

About EzTextiles, LLC is the world’s largest online source for royalty-free, production-ready textile designs. By making images available at the click of a mouse, it eliminates the traditional, time consuming and costly practice of manually searching, buying, and converting textile designs for each new season or product line. This easy-to-use and affordable design tool was created for a broad range of professionals in both the apparel and home furnishings industries including designers, merchants, stylists, colorists, mills, students, and others that use textile designs for inspiration and new product development.
