"Thermal PHX" @ monOrchid
Yeah, it's hot out. But that's not why monOrchid's new exhibition is titled "Thermal PHX." Instead, according to curator Justin Germain, it's a reference to thermal columns, which are upward streams of warm air that help birds and other flying objects reach higher altitudes. Up through August 31, Germain explains that the show is a thermal for local artists to display and elevate their work.

The group show opens from 6 to 10 p.m. Friday, June 7, and includes pieces from Kevin Caron, Diane DiBernadino-Sanborn, Mary Bruns, Morgana Wallace, Jason Rusnock, Peter B Klein, Daniel Funkhouser, Sarah Kriehn, Sabrina Peros, Mano Sotelo, Lee Davis, Larry Willis, Josh Louchheim, Jeanna Voellmer, Jayme Blue, Jason Hugger, Jon Jenkins, Ivan Delvasto, Dan Pederson, Charmagne Coe, Anthony Vasquez, Rose Clements.
