WASHINGTON -- Local artist Jacqueline Levine's work draws from disparate sources of inspiration: the Bible, pop art and "Honey I Shrunk The Kids," among them.

The colorful, character-driven works will be featured in "The Temptation," a solo show at Flashpoint. The title of Levine's solo show refers to how easy it is to give in to personal fears. Levine's also got the antidote to this temptation -- she just launched a Kickstarter campaign called "Rebel Against Fear."

She's looking for an initial $25,000 to fund pop-up exhibitions of her work in 2013 -- the exhibitions, if funded, will take place in vacant spaces in 11 cities, including D.C., Baltimore, New York, Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and Detroit.

"The Temptation" opens with a reception at Flashpoint (916 G St. NW) on Feb. 18 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The show runs until March 16. Find out more about Rebel Against Fear here.
