Saturday April 11, 2015 from 7-10pm there is an artist reception at CEPA Gallery and Squeaky Wheel in the Market Arcade galleries. Related programming and screening schedules will be announced in the coming weeks.

Rampleman’s work frequently showcases strong female personalities—women who are simultaneously aberrant and superhuman—who challenge the common clichés of masculinity and femininity and who often assume roles typically associated with men. This is a landscape where sexual braggadocio, heavy-metal rock stardom, or muscularity have become characteristic of feminine prowess.
