Kinky is a collection of new work by Las Vegas artist Stacy Rink that examines the effects of the unusual, gritty, ever-present sexuality of Las Vegas on its local population. It’s a humorous and unabashed exploration of how the commercially glamorous machine that is ‘Fabulous Sin City’ crashes into and merges with the resident’s everyday lives.
The pieces range in mediums from giant plexiglass and neon signage to wooden paddles to life-sized floating dress sculptures to stained, raw canvas. Bold color and light invite you to step closer and really get to know the work, much in the same way that this beautiful city lures the wise resident and visitor to look deeper.
Join the artist for a reception celebrating the opening of this exhibition during First Friday, Oct 3, 6-10pm. Local fashion artist Reyna Herrera will be debuting a fashion show made exclusively for the exhibition at 7pm. The event is free and refreshments will be served.
“After moving away from the southwestern deserts I was born into and embracing the forests of the pacific northwest, I have begun to reflect on what I appreciate about both environments. These works were inspired the biodiversity I am fond of between the two worlds I now connect with, from cactus to pine.” –Meg Adamson
Join the artist at the opening of this exhibition during Preview Thursday (July 31, 6-10p) and First Friday (Aug 1, 6-10p).
After years of anticipation, Blackbird Studios is proud to present “Dinosaurs Vs. Robots”, a group show celebrating the past and the future, the organic and mechanical, the fun and the fearsome!
The show will feature art from around the globe as well as your local favorites, as always presented in an over-the-top environment created by curator Gina Quaranto and her band of merry galleristas. There will be a Jurassic jungle and a robot laboratory to check out. And a brand new temporary “DINOstore & Robot Boutique”, where you will find lots of fun things and “must haves” for the night.
As always, our group shows welcome everyone, from the young to the young at heart as well as ALL people who appreciate art (or who don’t know that they do… YET).
Join us during First Friday (June 6th, 6-10pm) or on Preview Thursday (June 5, 6-10pm) to meet the artists, experience the show, and find a few fun surprises. Bring your droids! Service dinos welcome!
