New Openings, New Galleries Are Showcased At First Friday

After missing last month’s First Friday, I’m anxiously awaiting Friday Night, January 4th for the first First Friday of the year. The complete program of events is on the First Friday Website.

The Contemporary Arts Collective is holding a pre-opening party for their new show EXTRA.ORDINARY on Thursday Evening from 6–9 pm. Several of the other Galleries in the Arts Factory will also be open for Thursday night if you want to check out the art without the crowds.

The Fallout Gallery at 1551 S. Commerce is a gallery we haven’t visited yet, and I’ll be making a point to stop in for their show of new art lamps.

We’re also anxious to see “Peeping Todd -Select Treasures from the Burlesque Hall of Fame” which is showing at Atomic Todd next door to Fallout at 1541 S. Commerce.

We’ve heard a rumor that the new facade on the building across the street from L’Octaine on Las Vegas Blvd is also going to be a gallery, and we’ve reported before that Dust is moving from Main Street to the ground floor of SOHO Lofts in a month or so.

Should be a great First Friday. If you run into me, or Steve, Pam, Mary or Paco, please don’t hesitate to grab us by the sleave and say hello. Of course we may be bundled up so warmly that we may not be recognizable.

And We’ll still have to wait another month for the new Aerial Gallery Display along LVBS featuring Ivan Brunetti’s “Thirst” which was reported on this morning in the Las Vegas Sun
