The Fridge:  Opened this weekend –  “LADIES FIRST” is a gallery showcase examining the strong voice of women in modern street art and graffiti.   17 featured female artists from across the globe bring their street-smart imagery to the gallery.  Decoy, whose work is featured above, is one of the leading female street artists in Washington, DC.  Born near Brussels, Belgium, she spent most of her childhood in Europe. Her work explores the relationship and interaction of figures – be they pop icons or everyday – with color and space.  Many Capitol Hill residents saw her work in the John Phil:lips Sousa mural on the east side of the bar Wisdom before it was hidden by the construction of Douglas Development’s mixed use building at the corner of 15th and Pennsylvania Avenue, SE.  She has exhibited her work in a wide range of galleries.   The Fridge, 516 8th Street, Southeast, rear.
