Seven Must-See Art Exhibitions This Third Friday in Downtown Phoenix
Some are opening tonight Downtown, others have opened this month throughout metro Phoenix. But you better believe that we're making the loop and stopping by these seven.
7. Sarah Hurwitz's "Everything I have ever wanted to own" @ Eye Lounge
For three years, Sarah Hurwitz has filled Eye Lounge, 419 East Roosevelt Street, with everything we have ever wanted to own. The local artist's paintings and mixed-media installations have turned the gallery into an interactive meat shop, a science lab, a jungle, and a gem show, and with her last exhibition as a member of the gallery she'll make us drool all over again.
"Everything I have ever wanted to own" is a collection of illustrations of items coveted by the Phoenix-based artist that will open on Friday, February 15, from 6 to 9 p.m. and be on view through Art Detour 25, Saturday and Sunday, March 2 and 3. Hurwitz will be on hand to discuss the things she'd like to own, including lawn gnomes, wish bones, parrots, and skeleton keys.
6. Art + Science=Innovation @ Combine Studios
Student work from Maricopa Community Colleges will be on view tonight at Combine Studios. According to gallery staff, "Science is one of those words that gets thrown around a lot, like "Art", but is such a broad topic that each person can have a unique interpretation of what it means to them personally. This exhibit provides visual representations of how students view science in their own lives." The gallery will be open from 6 to 9 p.m.
