August’s Amazing Featured Artists!!!

What a mixture of amazing artists featuring at Jana’s RedRoom for the month of August!…Not to mention the super fun art from our 2015 Artists Camping Retreat!

We have invited the always lovely Lisa Herr and her mind blowing animal themed pieces that you won’t be able to take your eyes off of. Lisa is excited to be unveiling her largest industrial chic art piece to date at Jana’s RedRoom this month. Her highly unique approach blends multiple mediums together with a wide range of abstract elements to create something stunning, vibrant and fresh. Her goal was to have each piece reflect her deep passion for the animals she depicts, and also, to inspire people to take a responsible role in our co-existence with them….and boy she has done just that!

We are also very lucky to say that Jana’s RedRoom is featuring the mind blowing Don Michael Jr. Using acrylic paint and paper maché, Don Michael, Jr. creates surreal canvasses featuring vivid color and 3-dimensional elements which incorporate realistic imagery juxtaposed against chaotic, abstract expressionistic masses of color. His works never disappoints. The way he mixes colors excites the eye in a way that will blow your socks off!

Another beautifully talented artist that we are blessed with this month is the innovative Annie Wildbear. She is featuring two imaginative pieces this month. “OWS – We The People” is a brilliant piece done in acrylic on metal panel. This piece captures a particular moment in our nation’s history and is sure to touch the hearts of all.  “Lucky” is a delightful piece done in acrylic on recycled wood panel. With four leaf clovers, horseshoes, a pot of gold and your very own good luck charm it is the art that you expect to find at the end of every rainbow.

Last but certainly not least is the always extraordinary Mannie Rubio. He will be showcasing something a little different from his beautifully grotesque aberrations but equally as stunning. All done in oil, his sumptuous and saucy “Flamenco Dancer” is seductive and tantalizing to boot.

Don’t miss all these fascinating works of art and hundreds more at Jana’s RedRoom this Preview Thursday and First Friday, August 6th and 7th. It’s a celebration of local artists here at the RedRoom and we want all of you to be a part of it. Come and get your color on with us!

Loads of Variety in the Works at the RedRoom!

So much has been happening at Jana’s RedRoom in recent weeks. The Artists Camping Retreat was a little slice of heaven. We were in no shortage of smores this time, wish was a blessing once the sun went down and the fires started roaring. Between being serenaded by the lovely Clarice and being dazzled by the talented Kim Blake with her insane hula hoop show, we all felt spoiled to say the least. We of course need to give a HUMONGOUS thanks to Jana Lynch and Kevin Stepp for making all of this possible. We will be showcasing all works of art made from the camping retreat in August here at Jana’s RedRoom!

Mural Program is off to an AMAZING start!!!

Two beautiful and talented ladies were chosen to be the first ever RedRoom artists in our Mural Program…and boy have these two hit it out of the park!!! We would like to give a HUGE thank you to Jennifer Barreras and Mackenzie Lunger for giving us a piece of you. There are no words…simply stunning! Come down anytime to see these riveting pieces. They’re located on our outside walls off of Charleston Blvd!

For Jennifer Barreras, her mural “The Living Rock” was an image that came to her in the form of a dream. When complete, her mural will accurately depict 4,700 foster children living here in Las Vegas, Nevada. This is her way of creating awareness and most importantly making their voices heard. Through Jennifer’s mural, she is creating an image that will help others understand the burden they carry and to visually grasp the magnitude of this issue. She is in the process of creating The Living Rock Foundation. It will be a website that links all of the foster care agencies and orphanages here in Las Vegas so that individuals can make donations or volunteer their services. After Jennifer is done with her mural she has plans to do another where she’s from, New Mexico. But it doesn’t stop there…the vision is to create awareness in every state and then every country. Jennifer hopes for this to be her lifes work…….This girl never ceases to take my breath away!

For Mackenzie Lunger’s mural “99 Red Balloons” her goal was to do something fun. As an artist she enjoys painting stylized portraits with accentuated features. The idea of entanglement is consistent in almost all of her work. The girl in the mural has tangled herself up in the 99 red balloons. In her mouth she holds a red paintbrush as if she was the one to paint them in there, but also a needle in cause of a need for escape. Almost every time Mackenzie shows the mural she gets asked “is that you?” She’s says its a part of her, so in a way we are the same. The idea came to Mackenzie while listening to the song “99 problems”… in the mural the female has created her problems but is also capable of destroying them…..What a lively and witty concept, a gorgeous and relatable piece!

A Daringly, Disputatious Display!

Fu Manchu, Handlebar, Horseshoe…Variety is versatile as are our souls…

The technical definition of gender roles is cultural and personal. They say gender roles determine how males and females should think, speak, dress, and interact within the context of society. These gender schemes are deeply embedded cognitive frameworks regarding what defines masculine and feminine….What Steve Anthony’s collection ‘stache is trying to do is break down those chains. To say, that there is no “norm”. Our society is ever evolving. Change, different, unique, uncommon.. all terms that we hope to be accepted as a positive. Come and see this daringly disputatious display for yourself! Premieres this Preview Thursday June 4th at Jana’s RedRoom.
