For years, Anna Ramseys art has been as mobile as a fugitive and noticeable to the observant eye only in fleeting moments. Now, there will finally be some permanence to the Phoenix-based artists work.
The El Paso and Flagstaff-bred creative type (shes the percussionist in The Do It Upright Initiative and The Bears and the Bees) is also a professional face painter. For the past half-decade, her sweeping designs have graced all sorts of mugs, ranging from folks attending the county fair to dance floor-bound party kids. With her Flat Art exhibit Ramseys first solo show in the Valley, featuring colorful acrylic paintings with a bent toward the fanciful we can finally take our time and observe something of hers that wont be washed off in the morning shower.
There will be live entertainment during the Third Friday shindig that includes Yolanda Bejarano of Snow Songs doing a set with her mom (save the thats what your mom said jokes), The Cullens, and a DJ set by Mustache Sally.
