A percentage of sales will be donated to the Southside Cares Fund.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS Dalí meets RuPaul, Cindy Sherman, and a vaporwave palette in the work artist and performer Frida Monet, one of DFW’s most popular drag queens. Her work often incorporates photographic self-portraits and reflects the artist’s background in graphic design.
Ronnie Heart is a musician, DJ, dance enthusiast, and painter, whose surrealist landscapes depict vibrant alien terrains inspired by his interest in topography, evolution, modern architecture and vivid psychedelia.
Chelsea Craft is the creative mind behind Craft Made Goods, a collection of original hand embroidered pieces that capture the intrinsic beauty of a line drawing, the rich tactility of even the subtlest fiber, and the redemptive power of individual hues.
Inspired by her No Man’s Land (2017) series, Kelly O’Connor created this exclusive print for Lottie Mae Lounge. This print shows the tension between empowerment of women and their silenced energy from the 70s. Using a 3-color pull process, split grade printing technique, floral imagery in the headdress is painterly with intense, saturated colors of orange and pink, complimenting the remaining half tones.
