High school students from Holy Names University‘s summer program stopped by 1AM bright and early to practice sketching out their new graffiti writer names and paint a mural with our teacher. Opting to produce their mural on canvas so that they could bring it home with them, the group ultimately chose to inscribe the uplifting message of “Speak up!” across their canvas and it ended up looking aesthetically inspiring as well!

Learning how to both perfect their graffiti writer tag using markers and spray paint on a plastic wall we engineered outside, an early-rising team from Vertical took 1AM by storm. While they didn’t choose to take a canvas mural home with them to their office, they did however help paint an old-school mural outside with the phrase “Just like that” boldly emblazoned across it, which ultimately turned out great.

Viator may send its customers traveling around the world, but they were clearly at home spray painting and tagging at 1AM. The team chose to produce their mural on canvas so that they could take it back to their office to showcase and they asked for the phrase “Travel with an insider” to anchor the mural!

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!

Putting the SWAT in OPSWAT, the company’s team was an artistic force to be reckoned with when they came to the gallery for an evening of team-building! The team didn’t take a canvas back to their office, but they created an awesome mural on our plastic wrap outside with the word “Metascale” written across it. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up your team-building workshop with our gallery!
General Electric stopped by the gallery as the weekend came to a close for an evening of spray painting, t-shirt stenciling and team bonding. They chose to paint their murals on three separate canvases, their “Two zero 3″ and “Ill” canvases turned out particularly well!

We’re putting up fresh paint and new artwork today at the gallery in preparation for the “Inamorata” show opening tomorrow. Curated by Amandalynn, “Inamorata” showcases the feminine spirit and the fire ignited in an artist by his or her muse. In preparation for the show, we’re giving you a little glance into the finishing touches going on in the gallery today. Meet the artists and get a first look at the new art tomorrow, February 5th 6:30 – 9:30 PM. Please email ANU@1AMSF.com to request art catalog.
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.
