Images from Elektra KB’s reception at BravinLee programs

Here are a few images from Wednesday’s opening for Elektra KB’s current show ”There are Women at the Gates Seeking a New World” at BravinLee programs in Chelsea, which I wrote about in the last post.

A while back, Elektra sent me a few images of other recent works, including some that are going to appear in the solo show at Allegra LaViola Gallery opening next week. I thought I’d share three of them here.

The upcoming show at Allegra LaViola (titled “The Cathara Insurgent Women vs. The Theocratic Republic of Gaia Beings”) will open on Wednesday May 29th. I will post more information about it as it becomes available.

You can also learn more about Elektra and her work at her website, blog, and Facebook page.

There are several more VCS-related exhibitions coming up throughout the summer, including another group show at Allegra LaViola with works by VCS faculty member Amy Wilson, and a group show at Broadway Gallery in New York that will include art by current VCS student Andrea Garcia. I will post information about these and other events over the next few weeks.
