Many believed and even declared the death of abstraction nearly 40 years ago, but artists like Bela Fidel, Stacie Schimke, and Barbara Goldberg prove that it is alive and flourishing. "CONTRAST"
Jennifer Laffoon's "May-December"
The exhibitions will be on display May 1 - 31, 2014, with a special preview 7-9pm on May 1st, First Friday Opening Night 6-10pm May 2nd, and Third Friday Collector's Night 6-10pm May 16th. The monOrchid is located in the heart of the downtown Phoenix arts district at 214 E. Roosevelt St. with the building open daily from 9am - 5pm. The art galleries at the monOrchid are managed by the nonprofit arts and culture organization Shade Projects.
Originally a Del Webb warehouse constructed in 1937, thirteen years of renovation and invention have morphed the 14,000 square foot building into a unique space for creativity, celebration, and culture.
