Single Ladies: Paintings by Courtney Cerruti

POSTED BY: ELLIE WILLIAMS

As always, we are thrilled about our next gallery show! We're proud to announce that we will be showcasing local artist Courtney Cerruti's show Single Ladies in our gallery for the entire month of march, beginning March 6, 2015 and running through April 1. 

Single Ladies is a show of miniature paintings by Courtney Cerruti. Courtney took a departure from painting life size oil portraits to explore working with watercolor and gouache on a small scale. The intimate nature of the work is designed to draw the viewer in and spend time with each face, imagining what each woman's story might be, creating a unique narrative. Easily overlooked, these "single" ladies exist in isolation, but are grouped together for the duration of the show, creating a temporary community and a shared identity.

Maker extraordinaire, Courtney Cerruti is an artist and the author of "Playing with Image Transfers", "Washi Tape 101" and "Playing With Surface Design" published by Quarry Books. Courtney teaches workshops all over the country and online at Creativebug.com. Her work has been featured on Oh Happy Day, Design Sponge, the SF Chronicle, Instagram and BuzzFeed. She makes something everyday and can be found on instagram as @ccerruti.

Join us on Friday, March 6 for the opening reception for the show at Rare Device Divisadero (600 Divisadero Street) from 6-9pm. Celebrate with Courtney and the rest of the community! Snacks and refreshments will be served. For questions, email ellie@raredevice.net.
