> DESCRIPTION

"Once upon a time there were three little girls who went to the police academy....but I took them away from all that...my name is Charlie."

1970s television shows like Charlie's Angels, Policewoman and Get Christie Love presented a stereotypical sexy female crime fighter. Thirty years later "jiggle TV" still lives but there is a wide gap between the sexy myth of female crime fighters and criminals and the more complex reality.

In her new exhibit of watercolors and hand-sewn hair drawings, Cap the Violence; Pile on the Sexy, Rosemary Meza-DesPlas reflects with humor and sensitivity on violence, the sexy and femininity. "The sight of women with ostensibly deadly weapons challenges our preconceptions about the female or maternal role. Is violence the province of the masculine, not the feminine?"
