VOLUPTUOUS by Gia Ray
Las Vegas artist Gia Ray presents an intriguing look at sexuality through her new series VOLUPTUOUS. Showing over 17 new pieces that features women of all shapes and size, Ray's traditional palette is black ink on white with an occasional splash of red to tranquilize the senses and leave the viewer wanting more. This show, unlike any previous, is done in a sexually provocative way, while retaining the innocence she desires in her pieces.
Scott Sansdoval will also be presenting playful sculptures to delight gallery patrons with his sophisticated interpretation of the female form.

Affect/Effect - Opening Reception- Thursday, Oct 6, 2011, 6-9pm
By deconstructing the gallery, artist Scott Carter attempts to display a relationship narrative of comfort and re-addressing of basic construction design and systems in contemporary architecture. He achieves this from cutting, stacking and assembling sections of drywall that are cut from the surrounding walls.

“Jenessa Kenway’s Vehicle Care”
Jenessa Kenway is a videographer exploring line, pattern and color mixed with her thoughts resulting in use of squares and rectangles to frame elements in her paintings – only for the patterns to escape their borders and creep into other areas. She is playing with balancing an emotional versus scientific understanding of the physical vehicles we inhabit.
Opens First Friday, November 4, at 6:00 pm - continues through until November 30.
1551 South Commerce Street #A
Celebrating Existence: A Show of Atheism.
A collection of work embracing atheistic principles and philosophies, aesthetically merging the magnificent and the mundane. Political suicide and social ostracization be damned as these artists proudly show their absence of faith in work ranging from that which supernovas with seriousness to ones that implode in their levity.
At Blackbird Studios from November 3rd through the 26th.

We are the Talky Trees: Free Arts & Entertainment Among Friends
What exactly is Talky Trees? It's a 7-hour Arts festival centered around two ideas:
1) Self-expression of the audience such that they and the performers are one and the same! YOU have the gift of art, and we encourage you to realize it.
2) Collaboration between mediums: painters coloring a piece to a poet who then gives his words to the music of others.The artist and the audience? Same people.
This is an art show all about collaboration of all possible mediums. Music, poetry, painting, performance art. What every you are into, bring whatever craft you love and share it with us
