It’s time to pop the champagne! Saatchi Gallery has officially held their first all female art exhibition! In a show titled Champagne Life after one of the pieces, this exhibition displays works from fourteen female artists who use a wide range of media from traditional oil on canvas to clay to wax to plexiglas to even a real horse. Here are a few works that both shocked and amazed me.
