First Friday in Phoenix: 5 Must-See Shows on January 3

First Friday heats up tonight with creative works going up all over the city. Here are our picks for shows not to miss this artful evening.

"The Light Beneath" @ Eye Lounge Olivia Timmons' latest solo show takes viewers on a journey through a strange world where technology and sea life intertwine. Her delicate creations appear light-hearted at first glance, but there are definitely some sinister undertones in this work. "A deep and murky oceanic atmosphere, a place where light is the most precious commodity for survival, represents the conspicuous lack of resources required for basic survival," Timmons says. "My work underscores the danger of failing to take responsibility for our planet in the pursuit of progress."
