Over the past few decades, graffiti has gained more and more (well-deserved) credence among mainstream art critics and curators. But while the Banksy's of the world climb to international fame, one group is still struggling to be recognized: female street artists.

Local gallery LAB ART aims to change that, with the installation of a new exhibit last weekend called "Miss Danger on the Loose." The exhibit features the work of 16 female street artists, including Clio, Jules Muck and Sara’s Incognito. The show was curated by graffiti artist K H No. 7, and the owners of the gallery, Iskander Lemseffer and Rachel Joelson.

With over 50 paintings exclusively by women in the front room and another two rooms of street art in the back, this show is not to be missed. It will run from July 14th through August 18th, 2011.
