Local Artist Casebeer Brings Two New Art Spaces to Downtown Phoenix
October's going to be a busy month for Phoenix-based artist Casebeer ; this Friday, the artist and her partner Joe Myers are opening a "de-evolving art project" called Jones.
According to Casebeer, Jones, located at 516 East Portland Street, is more of a see-where-it-goes project rather than a gallery. But she has more than just Jones on her plate ...
"I don't pretend to be a gallerist or a curator, but I do have the good fortune of being an artist and knowing a wide array of Phoenix artists who are good enough to share in this experiment," says Casebeer.
"We are discovering the rest as we go along. We hope we know what we are doing. In the meantime, we're happy to report things are working out nicely so far."
The first Jones exhibition will be the "Problem Areas" group show featuring the work of ten local artists, including James Angel, Jen Urso, Lalo Cota, and Jenny Ignaszewski. Reception hours are 7 to 10 p.m. Friday, October 15. Admission is free.
Then, in November, Casebeer and Randal Wilson are debuting a studio in what will become Jōbot.
The space, says Casebeer, will be a small living room-style gallery out of the front of John Sagasta's coffee shop, which is moving from Conspire to its new spot at 918 North 5th Street. They'll be open daily as well as during First Fridays.
