Artist Claire Casseb will bring legends of film and music to life in her latest exhibit.
Produced in association with PrimaDonna Productions, Inc., "Glamour in Glitter" will showcase Casseb's portraits in glitter of cultural icons. Inspired by Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, and other pop art visionaries, Casseb's glitter collection pays tribute to Hollywood's favorite leading ladies – from Lucille Ball to Liza Minnelli, from Bettie Page to Brigitte Bardot – as well as music icons Lady Gaga and Amy Winehouse. The exhibit will further showcase Casseb's passion for theatricality and her hair and make-up artistry, as selected celebrities from her portraits will be brought to life by models to entertain guests.
“I've put all my passions – theatre, music, fashion – into my paintings,” Casseb says. “And having living models, who look like the people I've painted, walking around talking to people is something I'm very excited about. I'm looking forward to seeing how people respond to them, and to the art.”
"Glamour in Glitter" has been partially funded through Kickstarter, the popular “crowdfunding”
All artwork on display at the show will be for sale; for information on advance purchases, please contact Casseb directly at email@example.com.
