About the artist of FEM Art Show

The second stop of the FEM Art Show opens up on Friday 6/24, and will be up through the weekend.  FEM Art Show is a collection of works by three artists—Deanna Marsigliese, Eliza Ivanova, and Zaruhi Galstyan—who took on the challenge of illustrating the inspirational women of their lives, both past and present. This could mean family members, strangers on the road, cultural muses, and people who somehow resonated with the artist for good or for bad. Their work could not be more different—in terms of medium, color scheme, line, composition—but it fits beautifully together. Swing by and see each of their stories for your self.
