Let's take a look at everything that went down at our 10th edition of Girls Art Show at Leiminspace.
Friday, July 12th we set the space for a night of art, music, and community with an exhibit by Debora Cheyenne, musical performances by V.C.R., Nyallah, Neijah Lanae, and pop-ups from Andrea Batz and Hella Looks, hosted by Marlene Luciano! Guests spilled in when the doors opened at 7pm wandering through the space and checking out all the show had to offer. Over in Andrea Batz's booth, she served homemade guacamole, chips, and her newly launched Yeya's Salsa to those who braved the perfectly spicy deliciousness. This time around, team Hella Looks created a flowy satin photo corner, featuring our all time favorite hue––orange.
Debora Cheyenne's complete takeover of the space's 2nd floor filled it with abstract sculptures displayed on patent textures and bright hues, along with digitally designed portraits of larger-than-life figures and scenes. The underlying theme of Debora's collective presentation? Permanence//Impermanence. One that is best felt while gazing at the striking tones, lines, and shapes she composed. As the sun began to set, performances kicked off by myself (hi!), Neijah Lanae with a mix of piano ballads, peppered with electric guitar and digital percussion. Nyallah followed, with a powerful performance full of strength, sonic bliss, and lyrics rooted in wisdom beyond her years. Closing out the night, V.C.R. filled the room with vibrant energy and pure fucking joy with a hint of violin and Memphis swag. Girls Art Show is always a good time, and this past Friday was no different. Check out some of our favorite moments below and stay tuned for what we have next, here.
