Poster for The League of Extraordinary Ladies, featuring The Element of Generosity by ALB. Acrylic.
The League of Extraordinary Ladies is an exhibition celebrating self-made communities amongst women, and the almost cartoonish characters that we utilize in order to express ourselves. The exhibition will consist of seven hand-painted and embellished ‘gang’ vests with the names The Monarchists, Salty Sirens, The Original Sinners, Hell’s Hoochies, The Bombshells, The Plastics, and The Divine Dames. Also featured will be three assemblage shadowboxes, two framed watercolours, a seven-foot long collage, three assemblage mannequins, and one large-scale framed acrylic work.
Angelina Le-Drew Bonvarlez (ALB) is a Toronto artist with whom I've been wanting to work with for years. We finally got together earlier this year and came up with a great concept that encompassed both our art practices. Read about our entry, The League of Extraordinary Ladies, and a short interview with the two of us, on the Glitter Milk blog.
