“Everybody remembers his or her favorite fairy tales. Whether it was Cinderella, Wizard of Oz, or Harry Potter, these narratives had a large influence on most people’s childhood. Expect to relive your favorite fairy tales at the upcoming art exhibition at Industry Showroom on August 5. This group show titled, Fairy Tale Redux, presented by Thumbprint Gallery and Sudden Art Gallery will feature local artist interpretations of popular fairy tales.
One of the featured artists will be Cayetano G. Valenzuela, whose work focuses of the process of memory. Ever since he was very young Valenzuela has been fascinated by the way memory works and its connection with dreaming. Dreams tend to rearrange names and places and put them in a different context. The artist depicts abstraction emotions commonly conjured in dreams, which can range from heightened euphoria to a darkened sense of foreboding.
Daniel Jaimes will be another artist exhibiting in the group show. Jaimes started drawing at the age of ten, but he did not begin to take his art seriously until his father’s passing in 2006. With only two days before the funeral, Jaimes locked himself in his room and drew a collage dedicated to his father’s life. Afterwards Jaimes kept busy with various commissions and showing at local art shows. Some of these included venues such as, Thumbprint Gallery, Lafayette Hotel, and Bar Basic.
Other artists showing will include Sake, Alex Chiu, Michael Mahaffey, Steven Suiter, Jack Stricker, Eric Whitman, Sonia Lopez-Chavez, and many more. Rory Canfield and True Delorenzo will be painting live. Local DJs Terry James, drdiggs, and PLO RZO will be rock the decks.
The event will start at 7pm and run until 12am. Industry Showroom is located at 345 Sixth Avenue. The show is open to all ages, however you must over 21 years old to drink. There is no cover. The exhibition will be on display until August 27. ”
