Joyner brings his robots, donuts and more to Trifecta

Wednesday, October 31st, 2007

You have to appreciate an artist who is not afraid to paint things he just loves. Like donuts. Or robots. Or, even better, donuts and robots together on the same canvas. Such is the life of San Francisco artist Eric Joyner, whose first Las Vegas exhibit, “A Twist of Fate,” debuts at Trifecta Gallery inside […]

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. And furthermore, it’s October, which means it’s anniversary month for the monthly art walk and street fair — yes, it has been six years since Cindy Funkhouser and Julie Brewer (rest her […]

Neon Outlook: Vegas week in preview, post-Labor Day

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2008

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 […]

Step away from the BBQ and into the Arts District on Independence Day

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2008

Art by John Fanok from his new show, “It’s All Going Down,” running this month at Trifecta Gallery. I just paid my rent, so that must mean it’s almost First Friday again. Let’s take a look at some exhibits, parties and events related to July’s art festival held on July 4 from roughly 6 to […]

June’s First Friday is all about exposing body parts

Thursday, June 5th, 2008

Guess what we cropped out of this picture? Oh, man, is it TDBFF (the day before First Friday) already??! Sweet baby Jesus, where has the month gone? We have to warn you, there are so many awesome art and music happenings tied into the June edition of everyone’s favorite monthly arts festival / emo kid […]

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 […]

Come for the art, stay for the wine

Friday, March 28th, 2008

Hey, remember we told you about the opening of Chris Waters’ “Waiting” at the Jennifer Marie Gallery next Thursday, April 3? Well, as long as you’re going to be at the under-renovation Arts Factory (101 E. Charleston Blvd.), you may as well swing by Trifecta Gallery as well, where the opening reception of JW Caldwell’s […]

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 […]

Downtown Las Vegas — not just for hookers and crackheads … mostly

Friday, November 2nd, 2007

Occasionally — or maybe more often, but outside of this insider’s perspective — Las Vegas’ art scene actually makes itself visible outside of the monthly ruckus that is First Friday. Yesterday was one such day, where the axes of the universe aligned to draw moderate interest to downtown, both in the beleaguered Arts District and […]
