Ladies, Ladies Art Show 5/15
Artwork by Rose Hardy (top) and Lara Scotton.
At a time where women tattooers are so often featured for their bodies, rather their their body of work, it is exciting to share news of events and projects in which talent prevails.
Celebrating the fine art of female tattooers, the wonderful Ladies, Ladies Art Show [site has sound] will kick off its third year, next week, Thursday, May 15th, from 7-11PM at the Eights of Swords Art Gallery in Brooklyn, NYC.
Curated by Staten Island-based tattooers, Elvia Iannaccone-Gezlev (Miss Elvia) who works at Masterpiece Tattoo, and Magie Serpica, co-owner of Milk & Honey Tattoo, Ladies, Ladies showcases the work of established and emerging female tattooers from around the world. Here's more from Elvia and Magie on the show:
With all the interest on television about tattooing these days, Ladies, Ladies, is an exhibition of the serious, albeit sometimes playful, side of what it takes to be a talented artist in the industry. Each of the over 60 artists who are participating have created original pieces of art to display for the event. While some of the artists may be familiar names in the world of tattooing, other participants are just breaking onto the scene. Ladies, Ladies is a means of representing the progress made by female artists in the male dominated field of tattooing, and paying respect to those who have paved the way.Included in this year's international line-up are: Rose Hardy, Stephanie Tamez, Pat Sinatra, Holly Ellis, Miss Arianna, Kit King, Drew Linden, Betty Rose, Karen Glass, Emma Griffths, Anna Melo, Debra Yarian, Lara Scotton, Miss Marshall, Dana Melissa Dixon, and so many more.
All of the pieces on view will be available for purchase the night of the event, and the duration of the exhibition. The show will be on view through July 6, 2014.
Eight of Swords is located at 115 Grand Street, Brooklyn NY 11249. For more info, you can contact Miss Elvia or Magie at LadiesLadiesArtShow@gmail.com, or visit their site and Facebook event page.
