Bokeh Gallery

214 E. Roosevelt St. Phoenix, AZ 85004 | Central Phoenix | 602-253-0339

Location Description:

Bokeh Gallery, located inside of the monOrchid building, is one of the best places in the Valley for photography exhibitions. The galley has displayed soft-focused, black-and-white awesomeness by John Wagner in the past as well as an exhibition featuring Bob Carey's large-scale self-portraits of the artist posing in a pink tutu. Wayne Rainey, an accomplished shutterbug himself, opened this photography-only spot to showcase heavy-hitting artists such as Carey, who's a pretty big-deal commercial photographer in NYC. When you're not drooling over the photographic eye candy, you can stroll through monOrchid Gallery itself on First and Third Fridays to check out multiple high-quality exhibits in the beautiful Roosevelt Street space.
