“The Cool Girls” by Roseanne Burke is a series of encaustic portraits of iconic women opened last weekend at Szabo Vineyards downtown Nevada City tasting room. Roseanne took a workshop from Deborah Bridges at ASiF Studios to learn the technique of painting layers of hot wax and was inspired by the documentary MAKERS “Women Who Make America” and decided to create a show about the exploration of the lives and work of remarkable women. “Cool Girls” features Diane Arbus, Ruth Asawa, Josephine Baker, Mary Cassatt, Camille Claudel, Emily Dickinson, Billie Holiday, Frida Kahlo, Yayoi Kusama, Annie Lennox, Anais Nin, Toni Morrison, Georgia O’Keefe, Edith Piaf, Patti Smith, Alice Walker, Beatrice Wood, Virginia Woolf and Marilyn Monroe. The initial response to the show has been great, 13 of the 20 paintings have already sold. Stop by Szabo this Friday night during the First Friday Art Walk and meet Roseanne between 5-7pm. “Cool Girls” will be on display till May 31st with a closing party on May 30th from 5-7pm.
