The exhibition features artists’ responses to Frida Kahlo’s work and life. From paintings through to performance, over fifty artists combine their creative interpretations for this exhibition.

Everyone is welcome to come and view, and perhaps purchase a Frida Kahlo inspired artwork, and meet the artists. A people’s choice award will be announced at 7:30 pm. The show will be open from 1-4 pm on weekends until 5 April 2020.
