Jewelry by Ally Short



In no way do these pictures show off Ally Short’s jewelry adequately. The druzies and labradorites especially need to be seen up close to appreciate them. Rings, earrings and pendants range in price from $15 to $60 and most are mounted in sterling silver. Come shop.

R.I.P. Amy

Our friend, Amy Edgington, has died. 
Amy had two things that made her shine. One was her sense of humor and the other was her sense of justice. Some would say they're mutually exclusive, but not Amy. Her puns were bombs. Let's all remember her by holding a fire under those who would deny others their right to live as they wish to live, but do so with joy in our hearts.
"Bombs Away"

Joseph Allred, S!basstron & Dreaming Sophia at 360 Wednesday


Consider joining us for a night of music this Wednesday, Sept. 30, at the gallery. Our headliner is Tennessee artist/musician Joseph Allred. I know comparisons are lame, but if you like the music of John Fahey or Terry Riley, you'll probably like Joseph's. Opening will be local folk folks, Dreaming Sophia's Little Sister, and fresh from Legends of Arkansas, S!basstron. Music starts 7:30. Donations encouraged.

Whether it be by rattling boxcar, flimsy life raft or boot-leather express, 
people are on the move, escaping war and hunger, 
hoping to find a better life for their families. 
Exodus. Then, hopefully, asylum.

X3MEX @ 360!


Gallery 360 reopens Friday night with 'Detalles,' an exhibit of new work by x3mex. At this stage, we have no idea what he has in store for us, but that's just the way the man works. His latest mural (pictured above) went up on our outside wall the day of his last showing here, so previews don't exist in the world of x3mex. Come on by Friday and you'll be among the first to see what he's been up to these last few months. He's bringing along a couple of his friends - DJ Swift and DJ Ivan - to spin a web of sound. Detalles is very much open to the public, so come on down and get down.

Amulets and Austin Cash / Sunday, 7:30 PM


Who says audio cassettes and VHS are dead? 'Amulets,' aka Randall Taylor, will disprove that belief when he brings his 'Suitcase of Drones' to Gallery 360 on July 5th. Amulets creates an environment that defies description, blending looped ambient, drone, noise, guitar and electronic music with projected imagery. Each show is a unique experience. Austin Cash will open. Five bucks admission at the door. That's Sunday, July 5th at 7:30 PM.

Jello, anyone?


This is the latest altered black velvet painting by Amy Edgington to grace our walls. It's titled "Out of This World Jello." Among other things, it contains a tiny supernova, undetectable in this photograph. And what would you expect to shell out for this universe of wonderment, complete with stellar explosion and gelatin? How about $65? No way, you say. Way.

So come see them, buy them and encourage these very talented artists.


Artists include: Aroh, Emily Brown, Matthew Castellano, Lilia Hernandez, Cassie Hilgerson, Loogie, Vaughn Mims, Moonlit, Jennifer Perren, Robot Blood & Woozy.

Art Cards by Lynn


Lynn Frost brought by a nice collection of cards as well. Not valentines, per se,  but blank cards featuring Lynn's unique photography. They are $3.50 each.

Store-bought sentiment is enough for some folks, but don't you prefer to use your own words? Record them on a fine Little Rock artist's creation, put a stamp on it and post it. Beats email every time.

Valentines by Kelley


Why buy a cookie-cutter valentine when, for about the same price ($6), you can give a one-of-a-kind, three dimensional work of art by Kelley Naylor Wise? We have about twelve of these, each infused with the joy that Kelley brings to all her works.

Kelley will join up with Melissa 'Mo' Lashbrook later this month to host "Poison Into Medicine." Opens February 21st.

2015!

Wow. Wasn't it just 1997?  No matter.  We're looking ahead. 

We are re-dedicating ourselves to our mission. That is, to be a community art center that is part gallery, part classroom, and part studio. To that end, we'll be showing, teaching and making art throughout the coming year. 

Our next show is called "Icebox" and it opens on Saturday, January 10th and features recent work from 8 talented artists:  Ike Plumlee, Jordan Wolf, Brian Wolf, Matthew Castellano, Nathan Fellhauer, Elain Venable, leo & Robot Blood.  More on that in the coming days.

Workshops and classes for the next 3 months will be announced very soon.  So far, it looks like Kelley Wise will be teaching a jewelry class, most likely metal clay.  I'll be holding stained glass and lapidary workshops. Joe Martin will teach students in the art of sculpting clay busts, and we're lining up Regis Versey for a driftwood art workshop. A few others are in the works, but it would be best to hold off until we know for sure. 

If anybody else has a skill they would like to teach others. let us know about it. We'll be scheduling classes mostly on the weekends and early weekday evenings. Classes and workshops don't have to center around visual or applied arts, either. We're also looking for musicians, writers, and teachers of all sorts. If you have an idea, call me at 993-0012 and tell me about it.

In addition, we have a limited amount of space available for folks to work on their individual art projects. Call me for more info or to discuss renting the space for events. 


Happy New Year!  - Jay
