As First Friday grew in popularity, it became increasingly obvious that one day a month would not suffice in showcasing the creativity of the Phoenix art scene. This Third Friday is a testament to the choice of adopting a second night each month to show off the Art District’s talented artists. You won’t want to miss it! Find more info here.
Slices of Life
Do yourself a big favor and make Revival Art Collective one of your stops for Third Friday. Local artist Benjamin Goens, better known as ‘Benjam’, mashes up past and present influences to formulate a body of work which is reflective of the Renaissance period. Depicted through his own modern, street style, Benjam “… breathes new life into past designs”. See for yourself from 6-9 p.m., located at 335 W. McDowell Rd. Check out the details here.
Missconstrued Soft Opening
If you missed last week’s article you can catch up this Third Friday during the boutique’s soft opening. The ladies of Missconstrued will let their colorful hair down and give the community its first glimpse of all the hard work that has been put into this new, multi-faceted space, which will feature local and national artists, including Tato Caraveo and Trenton Larson. Swing by and say, “hello” from 5 p.m. – 1 a.m., located at 1015 N. 15th Ave., across the street from Bikini Lounge! Learn more here.
This all-female cast of local artists will exhibit works that stand for women having imagination, momentum, strength and yearning. Okay, so what does that mean? As more people discover their creativity worldwide, it becomes more important for artists to “go with the flow” and let that creative spark take them where it will. Come see where the flow took these upcoming artists from 6-10 p.m. at The Firehouse Gallery located at 1015 N. 1st St.
La Belle Noiseuse
Synonymous with the Phoenix art scene, Abe Zucca brings you his new “body” of work, literally. His new figurative works have a quiet presence that beckons the eye and the mind as he explores the human figure, sifted through classic technique and revealed in modern style. Zucca welcomes you to come see, starting at 7 p.m. at the Abe Zucca Gallery, located at 1301 Grand Ave.
Jeff Falk + Chad Knapp
What does that equal? A distinct exhibit with something to say, that’s what! Join these two veterans of the Phoenix art scene as they express, “… powerful works that make statements yet remain emotive.” Both artists are products of the punk rock/anti-art era, which still rings true in their work today. This high energy show will be blowing the doors off the hinges at Modified Arts from 6-9 p.m. at 4th street and Roosevelt.
