Palabra Collective Pop-Up Opening Reception

UNION, the Biltmore's hyper-local boutique haven, has seen its fair share of turnover during the past few months, giving rise to a new collective of temporary tenants: the pop-up shop. Casual eatery Short Leash Hot Dogs debuted Short Leash, Short Lease in March, slated to stay through the summer. Up next on the list: Palabra Hair. Art. Collective. with its newest mini-gallery.

Owned by stylist and curator Jorge Ignacio Torres, the salon and art house is in the beginning stages of expanding its current location on the northwest corner of Seventh and Pierce streets. The new short-term space will double as an offshoot of the showroom. Its premiere exhibition, entitled "Girl," features works from Denver-based illustrator and painter Rebecca Green and downtown Phoenix's own oil painter and sketch artist Mikey Jackson.

Check out the opening reception the evening of Friday, June 6, (exact timing to be determined) at the Palabra Pop-Up at UNION at the Biltmore, 2502 East Camelback Road. The event is free and open to the public. Visit or for details. -- Janessa Hilliard
