PRLog - May 29, 2014 - PHOENIX -- Over the course of the summer 9 artists will compete in challenges, creating new work each month to be critiqued, judged, and most likely "voted off the island" in hopes of landing a solo exhibition in the Shade Gallery at the monOrchid in 2015. This new fomat for the THERMAL PHX exhibition now has another innovation. Shade Projects is teaming up with ORNJ Productions and Rainey Studios to create the first reality competition show for artists in Phoenix!
THERMAL PHX 2014
The show will start off with 9 Arizona artists--Tiera Allen, Jesse Berlin, Alyssa Burke, Chris Czaja, Robert Gentile, Krystal MacMillan Pederson, Jesse Perry, Beverly Shumway, and Cassandra Travis-- and each month First Friday visitors will participate by voting for their favorite artist, which will impact the live critique and elimination on Third Friday.
The bulk of the webisodes will be filmed in front of a live audience (to get tickets come out on First Friday June 6 or inquire to firstname.lastname@example.org)
Curator Justin Germain calls this, " a landmark event for the Phoenix art community" because it features up and coming artists, the drama of reality tv, and it is something different for people to do during the long, hot summer here in Phoenix.
The monOrchid is located in the heart of the downtown Phoenix Roosevelt arts district at 214 Roosevelt St. The building is open daily from 9am - 5pm.
