“Oh Little China Girl”… is loosely based on David Bowie’s lyrics, China Girl.

Sun-Nov13-2016-StudioCGaller-ElizaDay-GreenChina Girl is the muse. She comforts, she soothes. She is no fool. “Oh Baby, just you shut your mouth”… Turn off the world. Be quiet and observe. I have something to say.

This Pop Up exhibition explores 12 women artist’s’ views of herself as Muse.  A muse unto herself, on her own power, creating her own space.

Artists include: Shula Singer-Arbel, Sabrina Armitage, Andree B. Carter, Emma Dunlavey, lucie Hinden, Eliza Day-Green, Aileen Imperatrice, Peggy Nichols, Sierra Pecheur, Peggy Sivert, Shelli Tollman and Melora Walters.

Eliza Day-Green’s artwork was is on the flyer. “Urban Scrawl with Snow Monkeys” is a mixed media piece on cardboard. She explains, “I was inspired to do these cardboard works after looking at a lot of Cuban art that through necessity uses salvaged materials. I like the idea that something utilitarian and everyday like cardboard can be repurposed to become a beautiful vehicle for artistic expression.”

Eliza continued, “Peggy Nichols is the owner and curator of the gallery and she does a wonderful job promoting women artists in LA.”
