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.

Our Beloved Pippi

In life, sometimes you come across certain souls that touch you…

We all have a special spot in our hearts for our “fur family members”. Pippi wasn’t just Kevin and Jana’s little pup. They shared her with the whole 18b community. She was the friendliest face of the RedRoom. It has been a couple weeks since her passing but I’m writing this to show that her soul is one that we will never forget.

I remember the first time I saw that little face. For some reason I took to her more than any other pup I’ve come across. Pippi was Kevin and Jana’s baby, more than just a pet. She meant the WORLD to them. I had the joy of being her designated nanny while Jana was out of town and i considered it a privilege.

Throughout the past weeks I have felt deeply affected by her passing. I could not fathom how Jana was handling it all. Even through this tragedy, Jana was the person who was there for me throughout it all, giving me words of strength.

Jana, Kevin and myself have been so overwhelmed and grateful how this community has shown their support. Yes, this community is about ART…but you all have demonstrated that it is so much more. The Las Vegas Arts distract is about friendships, compassion and connecting to people on a profound level.

Thank you all…from the bottom of our hearts. You have given us the push to keep Jana’s RedRoom thriving through this tough time. We are forever grateful.

Sneek Preview of June’s Solo Show “Stache”

Steve Anthony is at it again with next months solo show premiering in June! This is a little sneak peek into his 10 piece controversial series titled ‘Stache. He will be showcasing a variety of elegantly bare women with mustaches all done in oil. This series will bring to light questions regarding gender roles. His attempt is to break down the set of societal norms that dictate what types of behaviors are generally considered acceptable, appropriate or desirable for a person based on their sex. He dives into this topic that is centered around opposing conceptions of femininity and masculinity. In this day and age it is not uncommon to be a masculine woman or a feminine man. Through his paintings he would like to illustrate that it is acceptable to expose your masculine side to the world as a woman. It’s about being proud of who you are and feeling comfortable living your life in whatever fashion that makes you happy. Come and see this stunning show at Jana’s RedRoom this June. It will be premiering Preview Thursday June 4th. Don’t miss this one guys!

A little about Doug Douglas: Back in the golden Glitz and Glamour days of Vegas, Doug Douglas was known for his elaborately produced, self-contained, beautifully costumed, and meticulously choreographed lounge acts. His very first lounge show, the Apollos, started out with a garage band…with a 15 year old named Lee Greenwood. As author of “God Bless the USA”, Lee later went on to become Country Music’s Performer of the Year. This amazing performer has sold over 17 million albums to date, and has been told the space program was named after his group when they played an Air Force base in Texas!
Since then, Doug has self-produced 36 more shows in Las Vegas, the Playboy circuit, and the west coast. In Manilla, he was a co-producer of the first live album ever recorded in the Pacific Rim… under the WEA record label…with singing star, Amapola. Currently, Doug is the owner of Gravel Gertie Productions, and is utilizing the talents of various tribute artists and DJs to bring a taste of authentic nostalgia to a new generation of lounge-goers.

So come and get your candy on with us this Preview Thursday on April 30th!…and please don’t eat the art.

Community, Compassion, and Commissions!

A little about what we do at Jana’s RedRoom:

The RedRoom is where all kinds of walks of life can come together to share in something special. A place where you can truly be yourself, a place where you can find yourself. It’s about shining a light on the local artists of Las Vegas…about feeling that sense of community that can sometimes be muffled by living in a big city. As we always say here at the RedRoom, we treat everyone like family, and we genuinely mean it.

Another really cool thing we offer at Jana’s RedRoom Salon Gallery is your choice of over 200 artists who would be honored to make any special piece of original art just for you. Nothing is better than having a piece of art that is made exactly to your specifications. Stop by today and let one of our talented beloved artists take what’s in your imagination and bring it to life. The saying here at the RedRoom is…”Our artists would love to make it just for you, that way you love it through and through!” Commission pieces are great for a personal gift to accent your home or to give something one of a kind to a loved one. From family portraits, to gorgeous landscapes, our artists can do it all. Just let us know the style you want and we can get it going for you immediately! Come and pick out your favorite artist today!

Paula Billups solo show in May!!!

This is going to be a show of epic fruit filled proportions to say the least. Don’t miss this beautiful solo show for the month of May. Come and get your candy on with us!

In the exhibit “Good Enough to Eat,” Paula indulges her affection for small, sweet things. Candy and oranges appeal to her sense of ephemeral pleasures and are meant for the delight of the viewer. Of course, one can also see in the candies and fruits small relationships and personalities. She works entirely from life and direct observation, using direct painting methods.

∼JANA says “get your taste of these amazing lil yummies”!

2015 Elite Artist Team’s Work is HERE!

Back in January I hand selected 18 artists to be this years Elite Artist team. With a roster of over 200 local artists it was really challenging to find just 18 to represent my team of amazing artists; and if I might add; it is always so emotional for me, because I love all my artists so deeply. So anyway, I managed to do it, and I handed the 18 selected artists each a 10x10x1 inch blank canvas and said, “Do what you will with it” … and, boy, did they ever deliver! Their artwork is here! And, you will not believe what you will see … It is such a stunning representation of the vast variety of art we represent here at Jana’s RedRoom.

About Wyley
Inspired by artists like Gino Vanelli, Yanni and John Tesh, composer Wyley Lynch uses jazz and soul to create the tender and emotionally soulful album, My Alone.

Wyley Lynch is a continuing and enduring composer. Playing the piano for over forty-five years, his rhythmic and harmonious gift to music began as a young child from the influence of his father and uncle.

Although classically trained for ten years, his work far exceeds the classical genre. The instrumental passion felt by listeners can best be described as coffee house music with a strong jazz influence. Drawing inspiration from artists such as Gino Vanelli, Yanni, and John Tesh plus two years as a resident on Memphis’ famous Beal Street leads to an emotionally soulful and tender album with superior melodies.

His soothing yet refreshing music can be found playing in the stores of Hobby Lobby throughout the country. Wyley currently lives in Las Vegas where he continues to develop his unique and multifaceted musical style.

We will also be Premiering The 2015 Elite Artists show on Preview Thursday and First Friday! 18 truly talented Jana’s RedRoom Artists were chosen. We are beyond excited to see what they come up with!…Don’t miss out on these two amazing nights of music, art and FUN!
