Sin City Gallery Rocks Life Is Beautiful Festival with INTIMATELY FEMALE at Art Motel

Sin City Gallery is delighted to announce INTIMATELY FEMALE, a striking contemporary look at unique artistic expressions from a diverse group of exceptionally talented female artists. The exhibition premieres at the Art Motel inside the Life Is Beautiful Music & Art Festival on September 25-27, 2015 in Downtown Las Vegas. Curated by gallery director Dr. Laura Henkel, Intimately Female promises an unparalleled up close and personal view of new trends in contemporary art while unmasking secrets of the female imagination. Artists include Shelbi Schroeder, JK Russ, Nancy Good, Nanda Sharifpour, SM Shifflett, Marne Lucas, Sarah Jane Woodall and Dorit Schwartz.

American lens master Shelbi Schroeder creates provocative fine art Polaroid photographs with an alluring sense of mysterious figures awash in an aura of light.

Quiet metaphors guide the works of JK Russ (New Zealand) who reimagines the beauty and complexity of the natural world in collage, while the trompe-l'œil photographs of Las Vegas artist Nancy Good plays with morphed body parts to create mesmerizing objects.

Crossing boundaries of identity, pioneering Iranian artist Nanda Sharifpour’s portraits offer unseen views of the private feminine, made invisible by fundamentalist rule in her home country.

Likewise, the act of looking and naming is turned upside down by the San Francisco painter SM Shifflett, whose lustrous paintings are a celebration of the diversity of feminine experience.

On the flip side, a thread of irreverence and rebellion runs is seen through New York artist Marne Lucas’ counter-culture pinup that embraces masculine beauty.

Confrontation and humor is the name of the game for Las Vegas artist Sarah Jane Woodall’s outrageous live-action performance, Wonderhussy, celebrates female power…as she puts “Since the dawn of time, it has remained a thing of mystery and even shame. It has been idolized, fetishized, monetized and demonized...but its full power has never been realized. Until now.”

The magic of Israeli sculptor Dorit Schwartz includes a quiet evocation of the feminine. No overt symbols exist, rather seemingly simple shapes stand to express a spectacular vision of something deep within, the open spaces like an abstract illustration of the innermost heart of a man, containing a chakra like crystal, a round curvilinear wood carved to form a womb like interior, reflecting the hidden chakra of woman.

Per Dr. Henkel, “This reveal of new ideas and practice in art, erogenous secrets, and the unspoken realms of art and amour means this absolutely is a show not to be missed, a fascinating audience driven exhibition that promises unforgettable experiences.” The majority of these artists reside in Las Vegas, and their influences represent a global experience.

About the Art Motel

“Within the 15 square blocks of this year’s Life is Beautiful Art & Music Festival in Downtown Las Vegas is the former Town Lodge Motel,” said Joey Vanas, Life is Beautiful partner. “We intend to transform the now vacant motel and courtyard into an amazing showcase of art and artists, for a unique popup exhibition that will be open throughout the festival.”

The Art Motel is an amazing showcase for Las Vegas artists, and dozens of local creators, collectives, non-profits, classrooms, and galleries are creating site-specific murals and motel room installations for the 2015 Art Motel Exhibition in Downtown Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Art Motel at Life is Beautiful 2015 features a diverse and talented lineup of CREATORS, including site-specific fine art, conceptual artists, community muralists, aerosol artists, architectural installations, performance art, immersive spectacle, high-tech interactive courtyard and room activations, and several independently curated 'motel room exhibitions' from Las Vegas art galleries and artist collectives, including INTIMATELY FEMALE from Sin City Gallery!
