Join conceptual ceramic artist Danielle Wood at Eye Lounge tonight and become part of the exhibit as she transforms the gallery space into a fully immersive installation of interconnectedness that explores the links between the self and everything else. In fact, Wood does more than transform the space; she uses a variety of symbolism, textures, patterns and subtle color fields to change the viewer’s frame of mind and transport them to a place of oneness. Located at 4th street and Roosevelt from 6-10 p.m. See more here.
Alien Technology 3
In tribute to the 69th anniversary of the infamous and often contested Roswell Crash in New Mexico, the Firehouse Gallery will host an exhibit that depicts the influence of alien technology throughout our society, coupled with the mysticism of UFO’s in our culture. With so many mysterious UFO events happening right here in Arizona, from the Phoenix Lights to the Snowflake Event, the artists will have more than enough to draw from as they reveal some taboo truths about our history and in some cases, about themselves. Located at 1st Street and Roosevelt from 6-10 p.m.

Located at 6th street and Roosevelt from 6-9 p.m. More info at the SPOT 127 and PHX Kind websites.
