eyeCandy – WWA Gallery

A good art show will have your eyes wide as pupusas, scoping out every inch of the gallery walls and begging for more. If you take the show title as a hint, WWA Gallery’s eyeCandy will do just that with an array of delectable talent making up one sweet group show. Check out the work of a number of artists, including Jason John, Arabella Proffer and more. Mexican artist Gustavo Rimada will contribute his own brand of artworks influenced by his work in the tattoo industry. Think Dia de Los Muertos meets pinup or pop culture. Head to the gallery March 30 between 7 to 10 p.m. for the opening reception. It’ll be a feast for the eyes.

Punch Card II – Arena 1 Gallery

The internet is alive and well today thanks to… textiles? Punch Card II, a group show with six talented artists, blends the traditional medium of textiles with today’s digital technology in a show that gives the old loom a whole new spin. Basically, the works of the artists show that perhaps our digital savviness comes has roots in the loom itself. The artists work in everything from pixels to thread to weave together unique pieces such as Victor de La Rosa’s intriguing flag. Made with computer graphics and hand looming, the flag blends neon, textile colors into a form that alludes to the American flag. Head to Arena 1 Gallery on March 30 for the opening reception from 6 to 8 p.m.
