Wow. Tannis Kobrinsky, owner of Pilates and Arts, sure knows how to throw a party! In celebration of the 5th year anniversary of her pilates and dance studio that also doubles as an art gallery, Tannis invited myself and 3 other artists - Nicole Fournier, Mara Zaslove and Miki Berman - to display our art in a group show that we called "Bold Beauty."
The opening was a festive affair, packed with art lovers coming to enjoy each artist's interpretation of the theme - in photography, encaustics, watercolors and oil paints. This event couldn't have come at a better time when community and solidarity are so important. The turnout with the facilitation of a gorgeous spread of snacks, mean mojitos mixed by Wendy Storch and live music provided by Chuck 'n Annie was like a comforting, warm blanket.
I showed work from my Flawless series, which is about refusing to apologize for femininity, recognizing that pretty isn't weak. I developed this series in 2014-15, and added some new work for this show, including my biggest piece in the series, Phenomenal Woman. View available originals here and prints here.
The Show Continues...
Missed the opening? Never fear - the show is up through January 25, 2017, viewable by appointment. Contact me to set up a viewing, and "Like" my Facebook page to be notified if we do an Artist Talk Closing Event (details still being worked out).
Here's a little video Tannis Krobinsky, owner of Pilates & Arts took of my paintings in the show:
