ART AND DRAG UNITE FOR A ROYAL SHOW


Pittsburgh, PA Dec. 2, 2012- Drag Queens and Kings as Portrayed by Local Pittsburgh Artists.

The GLCC proudly presents a collaborative effort between the visual art community and the drag performance community. “Drag” can be understood gender bending or gender illusion entertainment that has the power to question, to liberate, and to push boundaries, much like the power of art.  Art and drag are both concerned with aesthetics and transformation. Visual artists and drag performers operate on the fringe of society, giving them a unique perspective to explore their creativity and expression. Pittsburgh is lucky to have such a rich and talented drag community as well as a talented and rich art community. In this show, Drag Queens and Kings have collaborated with visual artists to create “royal” portraiture. 

Most of the artists and drag performers are from Pittsburgh with a few imports from Cleveland, Philadelphia, and Erie. Proceeds from the sales will benefit the artist, the performer, and the GLCC itself. Everyone is encouraged to attend the opening in drag. 

Exhibition runs from: Sunday December 2nd   to January 27th.
Gallery Opening: Sunday December 2nd   6- to 9pm
The opening is free and open to everyone.  Refreshments will be served.
