Vendor Space Available at First Fridays in Las Vegas

Mayor Oscar Goodman officially opens Studio 8 Ten  


Hi team! I have recently been in touch with Angela Esler-Whelan of Studio 8 Ten who has offered our team an amazing opportunity to have a presence at Las Vegas' premiere monthly art event, First Friday
We think this would be excellent opportunity to provide our team much needed exposure and sales. We would begin with the First Friday in April of 2011. The Studio is offering us unbelievably inexpensive vendor space on their property.

There will be an informative interest meeting with Andreana, Supervisor/gallery/event coordinator
to determine if we have enough participants to make this a successful event. So if you'd like to be set up were Las Vegan's are coming to check out art and shop then please be at the meeting.

WHEN: Saturday, 3/5/11 at 1pm

WHERE: Studio 8 Ten -  810 South Las Vegas Blvd., Las Vegas, NV, 89101
(some of you may recall the location as we had a team meeting there last year.)

In addition - We are ALL invited to the Studio's First Friday show on March 4th, from 6-8PM. This will give you a good idea of where they currently are at with First Friday participation. It's going to be a fun event!

Please contact me (Carrie from Ametista) soon if you are interested at

Rummaging through Wonders and The Wearing of Silly Hats

One of  the best parts of our job is the hunt for unusual objects to re-enchant.  We found that while doing this the wearing of silly hats increases the fun of our little adventure exponentially.

For those of you who live in Las Vegas, there are some really nice antique shops to be found in the downtown area.  Two of our favorites are Charleston Antique Mall and Not Just Antiques

Preview Thursday Review - Las Vegas Art District

Recently Kathy and I decided to start checking out the local art scene on the first Thursday of every month (Pre-View Thursday) instead of on the first Friday of every month (First Fridays), because pre-view Thursday is a lot less crowded and affords the opportunity to interact with the artists and really take time to appreciate their work.

So we've decided that once a month we will share with you our top three Las Vegas art scene discoveries.

Last nights top three galleries were all located within the Arts Factory.  The first gallery we visited was Geolocations - Nate Larson and Marni Shindelman.  Upon entering the gallery.  Every photograph on the wall is the same size, uniformly framed within accompany statement.  The photographs themselves were interesting, well executed and diverse.  The accompany statements were at first thought provoking and then a little confusing.  But understanding that another person's art is not meant for one to easily dissect, we continue around the gallery to view more.  We then came across a plaque that read Geolocations which explained that the Geolocation project follows random tweets and by using Geotag information embedded in these tweets, travel to the GPS coordinates and take a photograph of the site of the update.

Just blown away by this original concept.  There's much more to the project so we will not give it all away, you must come see for yourself.

Our next gallery visited took us to NEWPHAZ Art by Andre Hines. Let us just tell you that this man paints some amazing portraits.  Some of his portraits included well known celebrities such as Morgan Freeman, Michael Jackson and President Obama just to name a few.  The portraits draw you in as if you were standing there with that person.  The eyes so bright and expressive.  Had to purchase a couple of prints while we were there.  You definitely want to check this artist out.

Last a but certainly not least, Statement Gallery, formerly Damned Ink Studios.  This gallery features some of the most amazing resident artist to be gathered in one location.  Included in it's list of distinguished artist are, Danny Roberts, Laura Zollar, Mike Biggs, Dasha Biggs, Teresa Maharaj and more...

The art featured at the gallery is the perfect balance of masculine and feminine expression.  The artists in residents compliment each other in such a breath taking way the art is edgy, powerful and entrancing and yet very decidedly opposite sides of the same coin. 

There's so much to see you might want to hit this one early in the evening.
