Last weekend, San Francisco’s Mirus Gallery opened their group show, “The Looking Glass: Refraction through the Female Gaze.” Focused on female painters who create figurative works featuring primarily female subjects, the show demonstrated a diverse array of perspectives on the portrayal of femininity in the art world. Stand-out pieces included Alexandra Levasseur’s mixed-media works that reflect wintertime solitude and Sandra Chevrier’s colorful, expressive portraits. The complete roster of artists includes Kimberly Brooks, Sandra Chevrier, Naja Conrad-Hansen, Mercedes Helnwein, Alexandra Levasseur, Jen Mann, Sari Maxfield, Alyssa Monks, Jennifer Nehrbass, Casey O’Connell, Claire Pestaille, Rachel Walker, Janelle Wisehart and Christine Wu. Take a look at our exclusive opening night photos below and check out the show before it closes on March 2.
