Freddy’s Bar announces its newest art exhibition, a show of recent work by Brooklyn artist Nancy Drew.
Nancy Drew's mixed-media portrait paintings of Cher explore the realm of celebrity, beauty and aging in the 21st Century's hyper-pop landscape. Employed as much as a stand-in for 'everywoman' as for her off-center iconic status, images of Cher from the 70's are printed onto contemporary magazine pages, mounted to canvas and amplified with collage, glitter, beading and various forms of adornment and deconstruction.
Also premiering in this exhibit, a very special Cher video mash-up by legendary video artist Donald O'Finn.
