A new collection of work from 25 artists from across the country! The concept of Strange Girls originated at The Coney Island Sideshow School, when the show's curator (and recently-hired BRLSQ studio helper), Rhys Jones, was studying banner painting. The term Strange Girls originated in use as an umbrella term for tattooed women, bearded ladies, lobster girls, and the like.

The show is an exploration and exaltation of strange girls and the myriad of ways they manifest, perform, and live this identity. The idea has grown in strength and numbers supporting different ideas of gender identity and expression. The exhibit features an eclectic mix of paintings, illustrations, photography, prints, and sculpture.
