Something Wicked This Way Comes ~ Opens Feb 23rd
On Saturday, February 23rd, Cella Gallery is delighted to present “Something Wicked This Way
Comes”, a provocative group exhibition featuring multiple works from 10 innovative artists handpicked
by Contemporary Art Curator, Stephanie Chefas.
A celebratory mix of the surreal and macabre, “Something Wicked This Way Comes”, delves the
senses into ominous worlds and forsaken dreams. The exhibition is a composition of some of the
most powerful contemporary artists whose inherent aesthetic is both visually rebellious and viscerally
seductive. “Each artist was chosen based on their dark allure and ability to transform what naturally
repels us into something utterly captivating,” states Chefas. “By consistently pushing conventional
norms, these artists are simultaneously challenging the viewer as well as themselves.”
Through an assemblage of mixed media works, oil paintings, watercolor and graphite drawings,
“Something Wicked This Way Comes” features the talent of Annie Owens, Christian Rex van Minnen,
Christine Wu, Chrystal Chan, David Ball, Fulvio Di Piazza, Jana Brike, Jessica Ward, Judith Supine,
and Michael Page. Expect to feel the hairs on your neck stand straight up; for something wicked this
