DTLA LIFE MAG #28 | SUMMER 2016 - Page 74

FEMMES FATALES by Petra Wright GDCA Gallery kicks off summer with “Femmes Fatales” - a group show exploring the feminine both through the eyes of females and well as males. All artists were invited to thematize the “Femme Fatale“ archetype, as well as their relationship with the same. The works represented include painting, sculpture and photography, and range from sexy to dangerous, to dreamy to the fun. As part of this rich artistic line-up, Carol Cirillo Stanley unveils her newest series “The Story” - a Triptych of suggesting hints of feminine mystique, romance and a touch of drama. Maureen Haldeman captures the less romantic side with same mystery and sensitivity, in her haunting photographic profile of a former DTLA – Brothel. The building is slated for demolition this Fall. In Gallery B the exhibit sheds another proverbial layer, with a tasteful display of artful nudes in paintings and photographs. “Femmes Fatales” will be on view at GCA from July through July 31st, and participates in the Downtown ArtWalk on Thursday, July 14th. Additionally, the gallery will hold an Artist Reception Saturday, July 23rd from 6 pm – 10 pm. Gallery Hours are Tues- Fri 12 pm – 7 pm. Sat & Sunday 12pm – 5pm.
