Painter Nada Jurisic will present “Detroit’s No Drag: Queens of the City,” her collection of portraits representing Detroit-area drag queens at the Pittman-Puckett Art Gallery at Affirmations on July 11. Vivid canvases of these vivacious divas will cover the walls, as the queens themselves perform. The opening reception will run from 7:30-10:30 p.m.
Jurisic is a resident of Bloomfield Hills and a recent immigrant to the U.S. from western Canada. The self-taught artist has been painting for almost 15 years, and has shown her work throughout Canada and the States. Jurisic became fascinated by the lives of drag queens after attending a performance in Key West. She hopes to represent the colorful and dazzling “ra-sha-sha” Detroit, in celebration and honor of these glorious femmes. Some of Jurisic’s paintings can be viewed at Ariana Gallery 119 South Main St. in Royal Oak, or on her Web site
