Katrina del Mar's 'Feral Women/Filmed Portraits' opens tonight on Avenue A

A solo exhibition featuring the work of East Village-based photographer-filmmaker Katrina del Mar opens tonight at the Art on A Gallery.

Here's more about "Feral Women/Filmed Portraits":

In a solo exhibition of new and archival work, Katrina del Mar revels in her fascination and obsession with Feral Women: a riveting and immersive exhibition of photo portraits, filmed portraits, black velvet paintings and drawings. “Women expressing wildness, sometimes overt, sometimes subtle, is a manifestation of innate power. The high hard femme, the bad girl, the rocker, the biker, the surfer-selkie, are icons of a new feminist pantheon.” The implied mirror or screen, a disrupted transmissive surface for exploring known and newly discovered selves via queer selfie drawings and filmed portraits, challenge accepted norms of representation.

The exhibit is up through May 18. The space is at 24 Avenue A between Second Street and Third Street.

Not only is her art engaging and beautiful but her audience is too.
I met some of the nicest people at the opening and hope to
see them all again.
