First Friday on February 3, Featuring Artist Nicole Marie Smith and Singer Elizabeth McGovern!

The Kitchen Sink Studios team invites you to join us for First Friday on Friday, February 3. The festivities start at 6:30 p.m.!

We'll be featuring the art of Nicole Marie Smith in an exhibit called "Acts of Love and Other Misconceptions: Painting, Printmaking and Mixed Media by Nicole Marie Smith." Nicole provided this description of the exhibit:

The work that I have compiled for this show discusses the surreal nature of the "collective" perception of reality regarding love, life and relationships. It is a mockery of those perceptions and an attempt at seeking truth and clarity in the darkest moments of human emotion and experience. A differentiation between the performer and the performance. The Act of lifting the mask simply by acknowledging it.
Nicole Marie Smith is a local Phoenix artist and received her Bachelor's in Fine Art with a major in Printmaking from Arizona State University in 2004. She has temporarily taken a hiatus from printmaking but is currently working as a painter and mixed media artist. Her surrealist, figurative and metaphoric works are currently being displayed throughout the country. You can view more of her work at this link. She'll also be exhibiting on Third Friday at our studio's gallery from 6-9 p.m.
We'll also be featuring the music of local singer-songwriter Elizabeth McGovern. Elizabeth will perform out in front of the studio, and we will be giving tours of the studio throughout the evening. Check out Elizabeth's Facebook page and be sure to come see her perform live on Friday night!

Doors will open and the merriment will begin at 6:30 p.m. We're located one block south of Roosevelt at 828 N. Third Street. We hope to see you then!
