Last night was the private viewing for the Femme Fierce Takeover exhibition at in Croydon’s Arts Quarter and what a show it is. Less than a fortnight from Femme Fierce Croydon hitting the streets in and around St Georges Walk a group show of all female artists, all set to take part in Femme Fierce Reloaded, was unveiled. There are some 33 pieces of art on display and available from a total of 17 artists, making for a broad range of artistic capability, presented in and on a variety of mediums, setting forth an all round great exhibition.
We are now going to share some of our pictures of the great works on display as well as the general festivities of the evening. Unfortunately due to the fact that some of the pieces were displayed behind glass frames, making it very difficult to get clear pictures of the pieces, I am going to focus primarily on the canvas based pieces that were on display. If you like what you see be sure to head along as there is much more great art on display other than what I am showcasing here, not to mention the other sets of works currently on display in the second half of the gallery.
