Neon Outlook: November’s First Friday and more art beyond

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008

Amongst all the Election Day nonsense (oh, and topless shows, dance-punk concerts and Tiki bars), we almost forgot First Friday was coming up this week. I know, I know, “how could we?” Well, it’s not like the future of our country (and the free world?) is hanging in the balance today or anything, right? With […]

Picks for First Friday Las Vegas’ sixth anniversary

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

Just one of many “Charming Patterns” on display at Trifecta Gallery. Is it First Friday already? Well, it will be in two days.

Whew kids. Is Labor Day Weekend over? Given I am back in front of my computer and not doing it up at Seattle’s Bumbershoot music and arts festival, I guess it is. But just because the big holiday weekend is over doesn’t mean that the week forthcoming is anything to sneeze at. Evidence: Trifecta Gallery […]

What’s another month without First Friday in Las Vegas?

Thursday, May 1st, 2008

It’s a month not worth living, that’s what. So you’d better hope your little $2 contribution at the Casino Center gate keeps this thing alive. I say, screw that, slip those volunteers a 10-spot and ixnay the extra Guinness at the Griffin later that night. So what’s on tap for First Friday in May? How […]

This Saturday, the party’s at Commerce Street Studios

Thursday, March 20th, 2008

Teresa M. Williams’ “Enigmatic Flow” Usually, the Arts Factory (101 E. Charleston Blvd.) gets all the attention when it comes to exhibit openings, especially on that magical Thursday before First Friday each month.

That little town […]

Forget First Friday, try First Thursday, Las Vegas

Wednesday, December 5th, 2007

Las Vegas arts scene secret No. 1: First Friday is for amateurs. The best action for true art enthusiasts is typically on the Thursday before the monthly art festival, when a number of galleries hold their invite-only receptions (which are never really invite-only). This is a good time to enjoy the art, converse with artists […]
