Queen of Heaven | The Carrack Modern Art | Arts | Indy Week


Queen of Heaven

When: Sun., June 25, 1-5 p.m. 2017

Paintings by Marcela Slade. One night only

At the seam between fine art and fashion you'll find Marcela Slade, a Carrboro resident whose art background includes earning a degree from the Savannah College of Art and Design and owning galleries in Spain and Ecuador. This one-day pop-up show at the Carrack puts Slade's series of acrylic paintings, Queen of Heaven—which twists clowns, kings, queens, and kids with poignant Expressionist distortions—in dialogue with the upcycled couture and tweaked readymades she creates for her sladesign line, which will be available for purchase after they come off the catwalk. With a live painting demonstration by the artist, it should all make for a social and stylish Sunday afternoon at the Carrack. —Brian Howe
