DESCRIPTION

"They had style, they had grace."  Drawing influences from fashion and propaganda art, the artists of Cigar Box Beauty explore the concepts of glamour and appeal with aplomb.  The exhibit will feature an international group of young guns including Naja Conrad-Hansen (Denmark), Soey Milk (US), Eliza Frye (US), Yana Moskaluk (Russia), Jeremy Forson (US), and Mateu Velasco (Brazil).  Suave, complex, and admittedly fetishistic, the paintings and illustrations of Cigar Box Beauty engage in a dialogue on the exaltation and exploitation of feminine beauty.
