Frida Kahlo inspired show opens tomorrow

Photo of Gallery by Michael K. WilkinsonThe Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery at Smith Farm Center in Washington, DC will be hosting Finding Beauty In A Broken World: In the Spirit of Frida Kahlo.

This exhibition showcases the work in all mediums of artists selected by me and whose work is influenced not only by Kahlo’s art, but also by her biography, her thoughts, and her writing or any other aspect in the life and presence of this powerful artist.

Frida Kahlo's artistic footprint in 21st century artists from all over.

Petalos Negros by Katya Romero
This is the third Kahlo show that I have juried in the last decade and I am floored by the range of work and interpretations that I selected. Wait until you see how an amazing Bulgarian photographer channels Kahlo! Or Katya Romero's gorgeous work (that's her Petalos Negros to the right).

You can start seeing the show on July 1st, and the opening reception & awards will be Friday, July 17, 2009, from 5:30 – 8:00PM.

See ya there!
