 with one of your favorite icons!

 Opening Reception Saturday September 23rd, 5-7PM

Show continues through October 28th.


The interest in celebrity portraits has been around since the work of the early Masters. Artists gain inspiration from everything they see and they have shown us many different ways to represent people.


Inspired by popular culture from movies, television, music, politics and art, these artists bring to life the beauty, glamour, and interest in our Pop Icons that we have worshiped and loved for years. Celebrity muses have inspired some of the world’s greatest artists, Warhol and Monroe, Hepburn and Avedon.


This curated show brings together original mixed media and giclee artwork of Craig Alan, Srinjoy, Nemo, original pastels of Loriann Latremouille, the ceramics of Noi Volko and glasswork by the Borowski’s.

The show is open to the public.

This painting is Nicole’s interpretation of her own feelings as she reflects now on her time outside the ISS. To her it feels like a dream and she wants this painting to reflect that feeling through the colors used and the rough look of the piece.
