February 25th - March 17th, 2012
On Saturday, February 25th, Cella Gallery is pleased to present “Femme Fatale”, a group exhibition featuring the works of over 35 innovative artists handpicked by Nicole Bruckman and Stephanie Chefas.
An archetype in history and art, the femme fatale is a timeless figure whose mysterious beauty has inspired artists for generations. Although this seductive character is constantly evolving to represent the social views of the times, she remains a symbol of female independence and a welcomed challenge to traditional gender roles.
“Femme Fatale” gathers some of the most powerful contemporary artists whose inherent aesthetic is heavily influenced by the beauty of the female figure. The exhibition explores how individual perceptions of feminine allure can be expressed through each artist’s specific genre. Expect to be seduced, ensnared and dangerously dazzled as though in the crosshairs of a femme fatale herself.
The opening reception for “Femme Fatale” takes place Saturday, February 25th from 7-11pm, at Cella Gallery. The reception is open to the public, and the exhibition will be on view through March 17th, 2012.
