Since the dawn of time, women have been constricted from fully showcasing their inner strengths, talents, and intelligence. More than ever before women are being objectified by the media and social platforms, yet there are also strong, empowered women cultivating and sharing their talents. Even though there’s still a long way to go, women are increasingly becoming leaders in the workforce, politics, and the art world. "Femme Fatale" is a celebration of this feminine power and the rise of the independent, go-getter woman in the new millennium. Women are natural creators; art is their inherent terrain and the landscape upon which their fierce independence can greatly flourish. “Femme Fatale” features work by Polet Guzman, Azure McBride, Sofia Reeser del Rio, and Angela Viens. These female artists strive to celebrate the empowerment of their individual selves in order to truly be the badasses they were meant to be.
Con Artist celebrates all of its members with a large group show. Curated by member Aprajita Anand, “Decorate, Embellish, Adorn” invites the collective to produce a monochromatic piece in any medium on a base of one square foot. The result demonstrates the breadth and creativity of the collective’s diverse artists. Con Artists decorate, embellish, and adorn any blank surface to create a mosaic of expressions which encompass their own individual interpretations of beauty.
SOUP is about different aspects of the human identity coming together to define our existence. Personal image, social relationships, and the consciousness of the collective organism combine into a simpler, unified form. What appears to be disorganized or random may just be a pattern of a higher level of organization, as of yet indiscernible to the human eye. Four artists' works fold down, fold in, and amalgamate, transforming the gallery space itself into a singular installation with a common narrative between separate pieces. SOUP features the work of Lady Millard, Shaina Yang, Frog Wang, and Jasper Fields.
Con Artist presents “Beyond the Pale”, a Valentine’s Day show that celebrates love in its most intense manifestations. Love emerges in unexpected places, grows into passion, and not infrequently goes hand in hand with insanity. In “Beyond the Pale” artists showcase the taboo side of infatuation. They explore the twisted connections between affection and violence, the narrative of two young lovers in a struggle against the world, the fervent agony of unrequited devotion, and the awkward ignorance of the martyred saint who gave Western culture its cheesiest holiday.
