Blackbird Studios (PLACE Gallery) Grand Opening...

Well finally after a few months of anticipation our friends who occupied PLACE Gallery have found a new home and an awesome new brand - Blackbird Studios. Here is all you need to know about the Grand Opening event that is poised to rock the Las Vegas art scene this coming First Friday...

Blackbird Studios (PLACE Gallery) grand opening with the art show 28DAYS2A Zombie Apocalypse

(Owned by Gina Quaranto, Gia Ray and Mike Arthurholtz) The grand opening will be displaying zombie themed artwork and appearances from the Zombie Squad. “ADMISSION IS FREE TO THIS FAMILY EVENT.

First Friday Public Opening: Friday, October 1, 2010 from 6pm to 10pm

The artists of PLACE Gallery are happy to reopen our doors to the public as Blackbird Studios. Since the explosion of the power transformer left us homeless we were devastated. But we were able to raise enough money from the “Picking up the Pieces” Fundraiser to move to our new location on Commerce Street Studios. We thank everyone who was involved with helping us start over. We look forward to seeing everyone for the zombie apocalypse!
