“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!

Regarding the existence of life here and elsewhere, a hybridization and metamorphosis occur on a cataclysmic rotation of blended species and interactions.
What if our planet was evolving and shifting to inconceivable extreme outer limits beyond what is our perceived reality?
What is seemingly alien is now a composite of all life forms in a perpetual state of change.
What if hierarchy, prejudice and greed were erased only to leave an innocent hybrid environment to thrive without awareness of self?
This exhibit of paintings and sculptures by Kim Johnson poses these questions and express playful yet visceral imagery with high regard and curiosity for natural and sometimes seemingly alien planet we live on.
Please join us during First Friday on April 4th at Blackbird Studios on Commerce St. for the opening reception of this show and let’s celebrate our very talented Las Vegas artists together.
