Kristen Thiele's paintings are derived from the films of Hollywood's Golden Age, depicting opulence and escapist themes and how they align with the concept of artifice. The contemporary artist is working from images dating back from the 1930s, images that have become new through their re-introduction into our contemporary consciousness via the platforms of modern technology. The painter works in Miami at Bridge Red Studios.

Girls' Club presents You Might Believe You're There, an exhibition from the collection of Francie Bishop Good and David Horvitz that touches upon the confluence of anxiety, confusion, wanderlust and loss born out of the recent years' global pandemic. Works in You Might Believe You're There allude to collective feelings of social paranoia and isolation, of a mass retreat into insular social circles and of a shrinking world, moving and shifting beneath our feet.
