The hipster center of the universe in Oregon loves stealing some of our favorite creative peeps. Justin Cory from the brutal musical duo Bodhisattva. Marla Thayer, bowl percussionist in Tent/City. The latest defector, as of December, will be supercool artist Lisa Albinger, who creates fantastical works on canvas by painting with cotton swabs and paper towels. Freaking Portland.
This loss will be our gain at the Lisa Albinger Trunk Show. The artist will sell more than 100 original paintings, artist proof giclés, and drawings, some for as low as a hundred bones. We love ya, Lisa, but all we gotta say is good luck keeping those paper brushes dry, especially during the rainy season.
The event runs in conjunction with the Chandler Art Walk, which takes place on the first Wednesday of every month.
Wed., Nov. 7, 6-9 p.m., 2007
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
