According to a news release, “The Spirits Are Alive and Well,” is a series of collages from various found material and antique photographs. The slice of Americana mixed with Cervenka’s own contemporary artistic style also finds itself intertwined with a reference to William Shakespere adn Psalm 46.

The second exhibit, “EPIC HERO,” features her stencil and spray-painting work which, according to DCKT Contemporary:

…reclaims the ready-made template, combining American symbology and imagery that challenges militarism, patriotism and notions of valor. From the camouflage of army fatigues to Warhol’s camouflage paintings, “EPIC HERO” and its layered complexity is at the very heart of contemporary Americana.

A reception will be held for Cervenka there on June 20, 6-8pm.

Currently, Cervenka is touring with the rest of X on their “13 X 31 Anniversary Tour,” which will be in at The Fillmore in New York City Saturday night as well.
