I’ve said it before and I will say it again, my sister Hope Perkins is a badass. This week in Austin you can see her art hanging in 3 different locations around town, The Longbranch, Women and Their Work & End of an Ear!
WEDNESDAY SEPT 17th Stop by the Longbranch Inn tonight between 5-8pm for a happy hour celebrating Hope’s new collection of Chola Girls and Carmen Mirandeers. The black and white Cholas are painted on vintage Hawiian Muu-Muu dresses and framed in fun black baroque style frames. In-between the ladies are an array of taxidermy deer heads all with adorned antlers and Carmen Miranda like head dresses.
THURSDAY SEPT 18th Hope will have one of her Chola Girl Paintings at Women and Their Work for their annual Red Hot Dot Sale, proceeds go to charity!
THROUGH OCTOBER 1st If you want to do some record shopping and look at art hit End of an Ear on South First. Hope has adorned the walls with her dead rapper series.
I am so smitten on Hope’s new Chola Girls I want to make them into big necklaces for Naughty Secretary Club. Would you wear them? I love the black and white against the bright colors. Remember Hope has purses, necklaces and sometimes earrings for sale on my website not to mention her own website Hot Pink Pistol and Etsy store. Oh and here is a little known fact…if you have a copy of The Naughty Secretary Club: The Working Girls Guide to Handmade Jewelry Hope is the artist behind all the sassy secretary illustrations with fun ice cream cone tattoos.
