CAMER1: “Taking Flight” Mural

Fresh off the runway, CAMER1’sTake Flight” mural hit the 1AM gallery walls this week for the exhibit’s opening reception. The mural emphasizes the aesthetic of flying forms and it highlights the idea that the weightlessness of flight is similar to the connection an artist has with his or her art. With an awesome mashup of talents in this show, it’s no question that CAMER1 and the other artists brought their work to new heights. We’re excited to see CAMER1’s art taking off and we encourage you to check out the mural for yourself.

Announcing: Take Flight

We’re excited to announce “Take Flight”, an exhibit curated by CAMER1, opening Thursday, March 12th, 6:30-9:30pm, and showcasing artists from the new television reality show “Street Art Throwdown”.

Cameron “CAMER1″ Moberg, a contestant in the show, will be joining us as we celebrate the new steps in the careers of contestants and artists Agana, Annie Preece, Grimnasty, Ivan “Gath” Preciado, Jenna Morello, Leba and Camer1.

There is a lot of anticipation around how these artists will play with the theme. Some artists will be taking a literal approach – with depictions of astronauts and birds – while others are going for a more abstract understanding of the phrase. On a subtle level, the title relates to the feeling an artist gets when they completely align with the creative process – a weightlessness where time is a blur and all that exists is the artist and air. See what form emerges from these artists’ work at the opening of Take Flight!

Inamorata x Teaser x First Amendment

Throughout time, artists of all kinds have been inspired by their lovers. Many times these inspiring entities are female characters that entice, excite, or even disrupt an artist’s spirit. The term ‘Inamorata’ by definition means: a woman with whom one is in love, and is many times used in reference to a woman who inspires her lover’s creativity. The exhibiting artists in “Inamorata” illustrate the freedom of love in a variety of contexts.

Combined with his classic contrasting illustrative style and perceptual manipulation, Ratur’s new pieces utilizes an edgy contrast between reality and lines to connect with this unique space in the city. We’re excited to see how the neighborhood responds to this new aesthetic in the environment.

1AM Gallery invites you to “Inamorata” this February!

We have gotten asked a few times – “where are all the women? Why don’t you show the queens of the streets?” We think it is high-time to bring some female (and male) artists into the gallery for a group show inspired by the femme fatale, so we invited Amandalynn to serve as curator for our February exhibition “Inamorata” opening on Thursday, February 5th, 6:30-9:30pm. “Inamorata” by definition means ‘a woman with whom one is in love’, and is many times used in reference to a woman who inspires her lover’s creativity. We hope you’ll join us to see what this muse will inspire in our upcoming line-up of artists: Amandalynn, Vans the Omega, Hueman, Lady Mags, Jet Martinez, Melanie Alves, Helice Wen, Monty Guy, Joshua Lawyer, Annica Lydenberg and Houston Berry.
