In case you missed it, Dana Bell: A Delicate Balance, just closed at Louis V.E.S.P. in Williamsburg. I have been to several openings at the gallery, but this was by far not only the best exhibit I’ve seen there thus far, but also an amazing closing party. Let’s hear it for the new trend in closing parties! ::hipster crowd raises PBR and cheers:: I met Dana during her part time gig at The Roger Sister owned, local bar Daddy’s and loved discovering that she is a painter. The work in the show featured many 9″ x 13″ acrylic and flashe paintings that were hung at eye level spanning the circumference of the gallery. The silhouette poses mimic the female dominant “hysteria” often displayed in film from the 1950’s through the 1980’s.
Dana Bell: A Delicate Balance was on view at Louis V.E.S.P. from March 4th until March 24th, 2011. Keep her on your radar!
