WHAT IS IT?:
Pearly’s Beauty shop: A full service salon like no other. Pearly’s Beauty shop is a full service unisex salon and party all in one. artists will do you up and you will dance it out. all our artists are donating their time and skills for the night. Join us for an evening of celebration and artistic pampering from head to toe.
HOW IT WORKS:
You pick an option from our menu of salon services. Nails done by a painter? hair diorama by a sculptor? Makeup by a conceptual artist? Performance artist paraffin dip? No matter your desire, one of our artists will attend to your every need. you’ll find salon stations throughout the party, with revelry all around. Artists will be partnered with salon technicians to recreate their designs (hair, nails, makeup and others).
Braddock tiles Print release (the LA edition):
Usually curated by the artist Swoon herself, for this special Braddock tiles Print release, she has asked her good friend (and publisher of Juxtapoz Magazine) Evan Pricco to be the first guest curator for Braddock tiles. Evan will ask 7-10 Los Angeles based artists to donate a digital image. A limited run of 250 embossed and numbered 13” x 19” digital prints of each image are produced and sold at $50.00 USD to benefit the project.
Curated by Marsea Goldberg of New Image Art Gallery, Bill Dunleavy and Ed Zipco of Superchief Gallery & Swoon, a group exhibition will open on the night of Pearly’s Beauty shop featuring Los Angeles based artists. Taking a cue from the Pearly’s Beauty shop Concept, artists will be asked to present work that relates to the theme of “vanity” – also the name of the exhibition.
The exhibition will run through June 25, 2016.
