Karen Meninno and Monica Mitchell:
Play on Fashion
March 26 - May 11
Artists' Talk and Reception: TBA
Artists Karen Meninno and Monica Mitchell are considering their passion for fashion in this new body of work encompassing drawing, sculpture, painting, and installation. Monica references contemporary art and art history, including the Yinka Shonibare MBE's figurative sculptures and Velasquez's Las Meninas. Karen considers the contemporary fashion world in an art context, inspired by fashion greats such as Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood and Christian Lacroix. Both artists are using the action of play through their use of pattern, texture, color and non-traditional materials.
