Press Statement

ArtHatch and Distinction Gallery are excited to present a group exhibition curated by June Leeloo entitled "A Few Small Nips", a tribute to Frida Kahlo. This exhibit will highlight art by figurative and urban-surrealists such as Aaron Jasinski, Edith Lebeau, Brianna Angelakis, and more. All artwork will be inspired by or pay tribute to the late Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. The Opening Reception will be held on Saturday, November 8, 2014 from 6-10pm with Live Music. Local artists within the ArtHatch building will have their studios open to the public as well. Complimentary Stone beer and wine will be served to guests.

"Frida Kahlo was a Mexican painter, born in Coyoacan. Perhaps best known for her self-portraits, Kahlo's work is remembered for its 'pain and passion', and its intense, vibrant colors. Her work has been celebrated in Mexico as emblematic of national and indigenous tradition, and by feminists for its uncompromising depiction of the female experience and form. Frida has been described as: ' of history's grand divas, a tequila-slamming, dirty joke-telling smoker, bi-sexual that hobbled about her bohemian barrio in lavish indigenous dress and threw festive dinner parties for the likes of Leon Trotsky, poet Pablo Neruda, Nelson Rockefeller, and her on-again, off-again husband, muralist Diego Rivera.'"

The exhibition will run from November 4 - December 6, 2014
