You know that old adage you dont know what youve got until its gone? Well, in the case of Phoenix and its creative types who run off for other happening places, its true.
In the case of Camilla Taylor a work-her-ass-off textile artist, printmaker, and curator its triply the case. In a few months, Taylor is ditching the desert for the left coast to pursue a masters in printmaking, leaving the scene with (sniff) one less über-talented artist. But before hightailing it out of town, Taylor presents Far Below, one of her biggest solo shows to date. The exhibit of sea creatures debuts at a First Friday reception at Pravus and corresponds with the grand reopening of Synthetic Compound, Gren Radcliffs toy store for adults. The Compound, formerly in The Firehouse, is another spot where you can pick up a hand-printed and -sewn Taylor tentacle.
