Artist Spotlight: Jenna Morello

Jenna, 29, grew up in a very close, creative family and now resides in Brooklyn, New York. As a kid she always loved to paint and draw. Her expertise lies in spray paint, house and acrylic paint. Not only is she ambidextrous, but her left hand can mirror her right hand with both hands drawing simultaneously. For the 1AM show, “Take Flight“, Jenna used torn linen to create a dark and edgy backdrop that allows her pieces to evoke a feeling of awe. She approached the theme from a more literal context and pushed the contrast on the colors to emphasize this feeling within her art.

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.

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.

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.
