This is the last week to get out to El Cerrito fine art gallery Eclectix for the Fierce Fashion exhibit, featuring work loosely based on the themes of fashion, clothing and persona. One of the most striking pieces in the show comes from artist Bryan Barnes, whose Living Lolita Lipstick conjures up thoughts of an eerie, Steampunk-era heroine who’d just as soon stop you dead in your tracks as she would ask you where you’d procured that perfect shade of red lipstick.
Many of the pieces in the show are featured in the venue’s online gallery. The show runs through Sunday, Feb. 22.
Featured artists include Bryan Barnes, Marie Barr, Slimm Buick, Sara Christian, Elizabeth Dante, Jenny Dayton, Patrick Deignan, Steven J.Gelberg, Paul Graf, Edmund Grant, Charles Granich, Dion Hitchings, Kerry Kate, Edith Lebeau, Malcolm Lubliner, Mike Maas, Daniel Malone, Polly Mania, Katie McCann, Dean McDowell, Fletcher Oakes, Arabella Proffer, Michael Roman, Janna Stern, Eric Trimble, Neil Verni, Michelle Waters and Joshua Witten.
