Folk- Art Fantastic
Some paint, make jewelry, design clothing, quilt, or get crafty with scrapbooks and knick-knacks, but for all their many media, local womens artist collective The Phoenix Fridas whose exhibit is currently on display at the U.S. Post Office in Tempe the focus is two-fold: Mexican folk-art and crazy-mad love for Mexican painter and Latina feminist icon Frida Kahlo.
The groups members, who have given each other nicknames like Smoker Frida, Paper Frida, Beader Frida, and Dead Frida, act as a cultural clutch of cool, offering ideas and encouragement both through individual artistic endeavors, group shows, and events like the annual Dia de Los Muertos.
As their MySpace page reads, We come from different backgrounds, cultures, art genres, personalities, and age, but we all have one thing in common: We heart Frida Kahlo.
Mondays-Saturdays. Starts: March 5. Continues through July 14, 2010
