Art Attack

Next time some hater says that Phoenix’s art scene sucks, gently remind the bastard that the new Ansel Adams show is exclusively at Phoenix Art Museum and Roosevelt Row’s arts district was recently featured in the New York Times. Snap!

See firsthand why Phoenix-based galleries and artists are finally getting national recognition at Artlink’s First Friday and Art Detour 22. Highlights of the self-guided gallery tour include an open house at Jordre Studios with artists Mark Burleson and Kyle Jordre (1007 Grand Avenue); colorful new art by Robyn Kingsley and Sierra Joy at Trunk Space (1506 Grand Avenue); and the return of Shag to Perihelion Arts (610 East Roosevelt Street). This is the third local showing for Shag (aka - Josh Agle), the California-based artist whose cheeky, graphic prints, according to Perihelion co-owner Amy Young, “takes you to different, engaging worlds. It is filled with riveting scenarios and an array of characters from the very bizarre to the very sexy -- each one as intriguing as the next.”
