March Celebrates The Narcissus – March 2016

What better way to celebrate art than to honor the artists ability to share themselves with the world. In ancient times March was the beginning of the calendar, a stormy month when growth starts and the world is soon to be draped with beauty and new life.

Jana’s RedRoom with be featuring 3 artists that personify their creativity in their own terms.

Su Limbert – Site specific installations explore the impact of civilization on the natural world and the contradictions of the human condition through evocative storybook narratives. Her multidisciplinary installations incorporate sculpture, drawing, painting, and ceramics.”

Su Limbert

Tankbilt – “…has managed to slip the grasp of insanity through the expression of art. My work is rarely political, nor does it frequently carry a heavy message. Rather, I create to expand the horizons of what society perceives to be possible or beautiful.”

tank bilt

Sean Jones – “Overstimulated by modern popular culture, my work has often attempted to find stimulating connections between diverse realms of high and low art. Feeding on the collective media memories of generations raised on film, popular music, and television, I attempt to create a fresh experience for the viewer and their relationships with their contemporary iconography.”

S C JonesPreview Thursday & First Fridays will be even bigger and better in March. The artists, vendors and planned improvements make this, “the 18b, the place to be“. There are new upgrades and amazing restaurants, like the Downtown Crown, now showing art from Jana’s Redroom. Check out their game room and events on the patio.

Will we see daffodils?

The best thing about being at Jana’s RedRoom and the Arts Factory is the community. Over 200 local artists show at the RedRoom alone. There is so much to see and experience. Come in to the Arts District, see where imagination and talent can move you in ways you never thought possible, maybe just to say hi, you never know who will walk through those doors.

Andrew Taylor filled us in on The Las Vegas Glenn-efit at the Downtown Crown on Sunday, January 24th.

What a beautiful group, so much positivity and good will. Roger & Annie will be attending events all over Las Vegas. Come with us! I can’t think of a better place to start your weekend than to come to Preview Thursday, February 4th and February’s First Friday at Jana’s RedRoom,

Has Technology Caught Up With You, or Passed You

News FLASH: I’ve been noting a change that could have an alarming effect on your art. You will see Jana, Annie and I walking around recording what we see and hear what we hear. The uploading of art to Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, Periscope and so many other user friendly applications is just starting to have an effect. Are we showing too much? Is there a saturation? Is this the avenue to a new renaissance of interaction between you and your audience?

Here’s my first Periscope Video

This will be the question we will all be able to answer, maybe sooner than later. I’ve been hearing a very positive effect that artists are selling more and connecting more with the art buyers and enthusiasts easier. I see comments about Jana’s RedRoom that people love to see the diversity and sheer quality of the works on Jana’s walls. I go into galleries and there seems to be a feeling of making a show memorable, not just hanging pictures and stuff. The trend setters are already here and will hopefully bring the world to another awakening far more extensive than has ever been. It’s up to you, you can take this wherever you want to take it. You might live to get everything you ever wanted.

Jana’s RedRoom, The Heart Of The Arts District

Jana’s RedRoom is a working art studio and gallery.

Yes, we’ve seen the Mission Statement. Let’s explore this truth:

Janas galley wall 1

 

 

“Jana’s RedRoom is a working art studio and gallery. Our goal is to inspire the next generation of art collectors by offering original works at reasonable prices and, in turn, putting meaningful money into the hands of emerging and established local Las Vegas artists”.

 

This is bold, I have seen the talent at The RedRoom coming from all directions and the acceptance of the public that ventures through those doors. Remarkable how many people come to the RedRoom for the first time, first time ever in the Arts District. On a Wednesday! Think, if all of us just shared with all our friends on facebook a pic of our own piece of art and an event post from the RedRoom wall. The numbers would be staggering.

Janas gallery wall 4Emerging artists are displayed on these walls right along with talented professionals that create art for a living. Seriously, if you came down to visit your piece you can meet up with others that believe in what you believe. I just come in to help make Jana and all of you successful, I get to meet up with an amazing group of talented artists. Listening to what they think and feel about this business, well, it’s inspiring.

 

 

Yes, millions have made this their careers. I painted cartoons and gallery cels for decades and made a great living. Some could be part of a larger project and contribute to another star’s vision. Your art could be printed into a design used all over the world. Everybody is a star.

Janas gallery wall 2

The Las Vegas area is so blessed to have Jana’s RedRoom in the iconic Arts Factory. I can tell you that the classes at Jana’s are always special with memories to cherish. Showing World Class Art Wednesday through Sunday every week. We’re getting our brand out there. Make sure to stop by Jana’s RedRoom any time on eBay.
