Beyoncé art show in Vancouver!

Beyoncé! Art by Rob Levesque.

 

Beyoncé has everything – multiple Grammys, nice clothes, a family, a career, etc etc. But now she’s getting the ultimate tribute – a locally-sourced art show dedicated to her!

For Flawless, Vancouver artists (and non-artists) are banding together to contribute their own original pieces in a visual celebration of the pop music icon.

So what can we expect from Flawless? Judging from past, similarly themed shows in Vancouver, there’ll be some pieces ranging from “that’s rather odd” to “hmmm, interesting” to “wow, I didn’t know humans were capable of such things!” And don’t expect just drawings and paintings, either – past shows have featured work done in a variety of media, from drawings to paintings to sculpture to life-size replicas.

Christina Chant is the curator behind Flawless. Her previous exhibits have included shows dedicated to actor Bill Murray (“Bill You Murray Me?”), rapper Snoop Dogg (“Drop It Like it’s Art”), artist Bob Ross (“Happy Little Clouds”), British pop group the Spice Girls (“The Zig-a-Zigallery”) and action star Steven Seagal (“The Steven Seagallery”).

Flawless, at Studio East (1480 E. Frances St.), opens April 18 and will run for a month. But if possible, you’ll want to attend the opening reception, which will include live musical and drag performances by the following: Beardonce, Mark Woodyard, Shanda Leer and Tran apus Rex.

Early tickets for the April 18 opening (7 p.m. to 2 a.m.) are $6 online and $8-20 at the door (sliding scale), with all of the door proceeds going to the Positive Women’s Network. Artists who sell their work on opening night get 100 per cent of the proceeds.

Also, Christina is accepting contributions until April 1; all are welcome. Visit the show’s Facebook event page for more details.
