Taylor Made

You know that old adage “you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone”? Well, in the case of Phoenix and its creative types who run off for other happening places, it’s true.

In the case of Camilla Taylor – a work-her-ass-off textile artist, printmaker, and curator – it’s triply the case. In a few months, Taylor is ditching the desert for the left coast to pursue a master’s in printmaking, leaving the scene with (sniff) one less über-talented artist. But before hightailing it out of town, Taylor presents “Far Below,” one of her biggest solo shows to date. The exhibit of sea creatures debuts at a First Friday reception at Pravus and corresponds with the grand reopening of Synthetic Compound, Gren Radcliff’s toy store for adults. The Compound, formerly in The Firehouse, is another spot where you can pick up a hand-printed and -sewn Taylor tentacle.
