All Female Traveling Art Exhibition set to launch in Los Angeles, portion of proceeds benefits Creative Visions Foundation.

For the past four years the Hive Gallery and Studios in Los Angeles has been the feeding ground for the burgeoning Los Angeles art scene. In that tradition, for the month of November, Hive will be hosting Feminality - a unique exhibition showcasing more than twenty of the most talented female artists of this generation. Then, on Saturday, November 21st, the exhibition’s benefit VIP event takes place including, amongst other featured artists, a live wall painting by the uber artiste Tara McPherson.

Feminality is the brainchild of graphic artist and Wizard Sleeve Toys founder, Mike Franco.

“I started my toy website (www.WizardSleeveToys.com) last November and simultaneously started developing the idea for this show,” says Franco. “I was drawn to the works of several female artists and wanted to enable them and create a showcase for their work.” Feminality will do just that.

For the launch of Feminality, Franco was determined to have McPherson participate. “I heard that Tara was coming to the Kidrobot store in Miami to do a signing to promote her new toy, so I emailed her out of the blue to tell her that I was coming down to meet her to talk about painting a mural for our Los Angeles show. I met her and she was receptive to the idea. Once I had Tara on board, the rest of the artists were honored to be a part of the show.”

A true mix of different art, Feminality will feature more than 20 top artists like Georgette Pressler (body art), Tara Hauck (fine art photography), as well as Amy Botello, Aunia Kahn and Jessica Sardas amongst others.

Franco plans on bringing Feminality around the country. The next show is slated to coincide with Art Basel Miami (December 3rd-6th). A third show is already in the works for February 2010 (venue will be somewhere in NYC, NY).

The Feminality gallery eventbegins on Sunday, November 1st. The VIP event takes place Saturday November 21st from 1 PM - 10:00 PM at the Hive Gallery 729 S. Spring Street in Los Angeles.

Many thanks to Cate Rangel for the photo shooting.

BORDERLOVE
group art exhibition curated by Alexandra Mazzanti
dorothy circus - rome / italy
2009 january 16th to february 25th

featuring:
Benjamin Lacombe, Lostfish, Kmye Chan, Consuelo Mura

Molteplici i viaggi intrapresi dalla Dorothy Circus Gallery nel suo primo anno di attività. Aprendo le sue porte al mondo del Pop Surrealismo ha illuminato gli oscuri lati delle favole per adulti, riportato a galla nuove mitologie, disfatto e rifatto il puzzle della rabbia, capovolto e risuscitato il subconscio nostalgico. E’ la volta dell’amore estremo. Questa la nuova sfida della D.C.G: raccontare attraverso le opere degli artisti LOSTFISH, BENJAMIN LACOMBE, KMYE CHAN, CONSUELO MURA gli amori di oggi: precari, incomprensibili, privati, spesso invisibili. Storie, dinamiche, giochi e i loro protagonisti al confine tra il sano e l’insano, amanti non coniugati ma ugualmente congiunti.Molteplici volti degli amori moderni che hanno oltrepassato il limite delle buone maniere, saturi di perbenismo e condizionamenti, ribelli ma intrisi di spiritualità antica, nutriti di solitudine e di una passione che è droga della mente e dell’anima. I sorrisi di quell’amore che trova la sua coscienza nell’erotismo dei malintesi, seguendo le tracce delle gioie come promesse dell’impossibile che prescinde dalle regole e sconfina nell’assurdo di un’intimità surreale, fatta di sesso e possesso, fusione e matrimonio dei sensi.
"Il cuore è sinistro e vive tra le fiamme”.
