In the spirit of Day of the Dead, a whole gallery will be devoted to a series of shrines from artists paying homage to deceased loved ones. And year after year, people keep coming back to show their love for Frida. I think what really amazed me was how she was able to capture her pain in her paintings, says Barrett. Instead of being a miserable person and complaining, she really expressed her frustration and misery in her artwork.
Pencil in your unibrow and head over to Comfort Cafe, 3925 Tennyson Street, tonight from 5 to 10 p.m. The event is free, but come ready to shop for Frida-style jewelry, handbags and cards. For more information, visit www.studiobead.com.
