FIRST FRI RECAP : FULL HOUSE @ 1SPOT : HEAT CAN’T STOP US!

WOW – THANK YOU PHOENIX!

Last First Friday was an AMAZING night…

We were packed to the rim with art-loving folks, friends, and family!

Jeff Slim’s “Analog Roulette” was a great success, and Ryan Dennison‘s ethereal musical set was beautiful!

Our wonderful neighbor Andrew Pielage and his Drive-Thru Gallery had a great Haboob show that was spectacular too!

JeffSlimAnalogFlyer2014

We are so inspired by artist Jeff Slim’s new collaborations, a fleshed out exhibit of film photography and his exquisite stencil work.

His added forms look beautiful, flowing, natural, bursting with stories that compliment each analog photograph.  Which is great, because these photographs just BOUNCE off the wall!

Artist statement on ANALOG ROULETTE:

“Within an era of instant gratification there is the digital camera. Amongst this digital frenzy there lays a cult of photographers who still prefer the process of film. It’s these individuals who continue to keep this art form alive. From candid to conceptual captures there is a mystery in every roll of film. Though film photography is a medium for the masses and not only for camera savvy individuals, it’s a classic method of book marking one’s life.

The unforgivingness of film photography is equal to free hand stencil cutting, making the art forms both attracting and challenging. When a piece is removed to create an image there is no going back, just as the shutter of the camera closes when a photo is taken. By applying the beauty of both photography and stenciling this exhibition presents unique pieces of work.”

Damian Jim brings to life his retelling of a Hero archetype envisioned by every culture around the World.  

In all of these classic tales, the heroes must take a mystical journey that imbues them with power to overcome the forces they face.  A magical talisman, or arcane knowledge is gained, the protagonists become a force for good and with every battle a decisive victory is won. Undefeated the Heroes return and provide for their kin.

DJ BYRON FENIX

ByronFenixVinyl

“Byron Fenix, senior producer and host of the weekly radio program Soul Deluxe, as well as a resident DJ at SoChu House in Phoenix, Arizona, is not your average mix DJ.  “I started collecting music by recording it on a cassette player,” he laments.  A native of Phoenix, Byron is soul music’s most unlikely ambassador.  Born to a Navajo father, and a half Hopi, half Navajo mother, he learned early on to appreciate diversity, not just in the music he collected, but in his everyday life as well.”
