 RAIDERS – Rough & Ready

WITH THE DEACON JONES FOUNDATION

August 5 – September 2

OPENING RECEPTION SATURDAY, AUGUST 5th | 6:00pm – 8:00pm

Co-Founder and wife to the late Deacon Jones will be in attendance.

Bash Fine Art and The Deacon Jones Foundation welcome the Raiders to Las Vegas! In celebration of the Raiders new home a special showing of team players, rivals and magic moments will be on exhibit thru the month of August. Come and support our home town team, meet and greet guests celebrities at the opening reception, acquire original works of art and limited edition prints licensed by the NFL. Proceeds from the sale of these licensed pieces of sports art will benefit the Foundation’s Young Emerging Artists Education & Scholarship Program.

Through an exceptional arrangement with the National Football League, The Deacon Jones Foundation is delighted to be working with a group of artists who have created a dynamic series of limited edition sports art prints featuring the teams and players of the NFL. Each print is officially licensed by the NFL.

The American artists include Edgar Brown, Robert Hurst and Dave Hobrecht among many others. Each artist brings an interesting perspective to America’s passion for professional football through their work. From capturing special moments in history to current players and NFL greats, each piece of art was created with the fan in mind.

“Coming from a poor, inner-city neighborhood myself, I have an intimate knowledge of all of the problems people face there. It’s not just the inability to afford a good education that is a problem. Inner-city kids have to be prepared for college in every sense. For instance, kids from Beverly Hills grow up hearing about the stock market and real estate deals over the dinner table. When kids from the ghetto enter college and the workplace, they don’t know a thing about what they hear. And they are never told exactly what their commitment to their own neighborhoods must be.” — Deacon Jones

John Moffitt Solo Exhibition

September 9 – October 7

OPENING RECEPTION SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 9TH | 6:00PM – 8:00PM

JOHN MOFFITT’S interest in large scale painting eventually led him to the motion picture industry in 1975 where he worked as a motion picture Scenic Artist creating hundreds of monumental landscapes and cityscape backdrops and well as murals, fine art and portraiture for films and television. From Goonies to Ghost Busters, the Lethal Weapon series, the Batman series and the Ironman series to Benjamin Button, Moffitt’s artwork has graced the screen, his work often “hidden in plain sight.” During this time period he also executed murals for clients such as the MGM Grand Hotel, Gelson’s Markets, Lockheed Aircraft and the Samuel Goldwyn Museum, and found time to illustrate album covers and artwork for Capitol Records and to design logos and commercial artwork for record company executives. Moffitt ceased actively creating artwork for the entertainment industry in 2006 to be engaged by the Art Directors Guild as its Associate Executive Director.
Moffitt retired from the Art Directors Guild in 2014 to devote himself to painting fine artwork full time.

Three person show featuring the works of Marie Larkin, Sheri DeBow & Kurtis Rykovich

OPENING RECEPTION SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 18TH | 6:00PM – 8:00PM

Marie Larkin is an Australian Pop Surrealist. Her art embodies an undeniably feminine oeuvre, meticulous execution and attention to detail. Works in painting, drawing and sculpture have been inspired by fairytale and nursery rhyme narratives, pop culture, beauty and the feminine persona.. She creates richly coloured, finely detailed, alternate worlds inhabited by beautiful girls, strange and mesmerising, with expressive eyes and dark natures. Most recently, female characters have an undeniable feminine force, strong, empowered and aloof. Her bodies of work continue to mature, gaining greater sophistication of style and consistency throughout.. Paintings and drawings retain her signature women who embue the works with narrative and emotional content.

 

 

 

Sheri DeBow – “Ever since I was little I’ve always had my hands on some form of art. I relish in creating something fun or amazing where others would think of as nothing there. Whether it’s a blank canvas or scraps of wood, wire, fabric or clay, I see possibilities in everything around me. I did artwork all through school, it kept me feeling alive. I studied painting and drawing with professor Sakaguchi in Pasadena,Ca. and took sculpture courses under Phil Cornelius. I did a short apprenticeship under Franco Vianello in the Napa Valley.I also took courses under the “Mad Scientist” of clay, Micheal Maday. I was privileged to attend some life changing work shops with the wonderful sculptor, Richard Carter and Sensei Kusakabe, who is an amazing ceramicist. As a Mom to five wonderful children, the world went upside down for me when I started having kids. What I could work on had to be out of reach and mostly in the wee hours of the night. Although my art has had to wait many times, I wouldn’t trade away one minute of time spent with them. They have all stretched me farther as a person than I thought was possible. I blinked and already it has gone to walking, running, arguing, laughing and all of them shining with their own amazing thoughts and talents! After years of painting and sculpting for myself I decided to stop playing it safe and force myself to be vulnerable & share my God given ability. I had my first art show in the Napa Valley and it was a great success. I realized it was time to start focusing on my art since it was already my passion. I have shown from Germany, Canada, New York, New Orleans out to San Francisco, L.A., Seattle and back again! I now have pieces hanging all over the globe! I have been a full time artist now for quite a few years and it is a constant labor of love. I pour so much of myself and my life into every piece of work, that at times, it is almost impossible to let them go. I have a slightly comical and often twisted view of marriage. I have also had an amazing life of extremes from childhood into adulthood, some things wonderful, some things horrible! Since art is the greatest personal therapy it always manages to find it’s way into my work! Even though life can get crazy I LOVE it and art is air for me! I hope you feel something genuine when you view my work. Whether it is joy, laughter, tears, spirituality, anger, struggle, sex, frustration, peace or whimsy, I hope it evokes something true for you. I hope it makes you stop and think. That is why I sculpt and paint. That is why I create. : )”

 

Kurtis Rykovich grew up in the small mining town of Ely, NV. There was never much culture or Art in the area but his Family and Mentors always encouraged him to pull from his creativity and create a world far better then his own. Kurtis then attended the University of Nevada Las Vegas where he studied Fine Art which he completed in 2006. Growing up Kurtis had always had a fascination with fashion, history, and beauty. It is not till he left his small town to attend a university where he started to pull these elements together. “ I am not so much inspired by the history you learn in textbooks, but I am more drawn to the history of an individual, maybe never documented, and how that history has created such a beautiful or slightly eerie being.” Kurtis creates these visions of beauty whose stories appear to be shrouded in ornate clothing and effortless hair, but when observed at more then just a glance you will get a taste of what they have been through or perhaps what they lack.
