Take Up Space featuring Marcella Colavecchio
Time & Location
About The Event
Marcella Colavecchio is an Austin based artist known for her vibrant enthusiasm for color, which is manifested in her figurative work. In "Take Up Space" she presents figures representing her desire to tackle issues around the push and pull of being a woman and the depiction of women in our society and popular culture. The female nude is traditionally painted under the male gaze, by painting herself in the nude, she challenges traditional dynamics by becoming both the artist and model, reclaiming power as the author and subject of her work.
"Take Up Space" is Marcella's latest solo exhibition, showing May 1 through June 8 at The Clever Tiger Art Gallery. Opening reception is May 1, 6p-11p
