The Warehouse show will feature a WALL! of images from our projects together. There is a combination of backstage images from the Style Clash show at Temple May 11, 2009. This was a fashion show with Estar doing the hats and headpieces. The second series is from a photoshoot at Hotel des' Arts on May 12, 2009. In 2006, I painted Room 503 as a guest artist in the Painted Rooms series at the hotel. This was the first time I was able to go back as a clothing artist and do a photoshoot with my clothing set against my paintings.

I have the upmost thanks and respect to Angela for all the work she's done and I'm delighted to see the images printed for the first time....!

As always, all of these projects take a unique collaboration of all different skills and arts, and my deepest Thanks and Appretiation for all the energy from every individual that has gone into all of these project. None of these would happen without you. Thank you.

Also, if you're in RENO! Tamo, Silver Lucy and Rachel of Minerva's Antenna will be hosting a Trunk Show at the Melting Point Gallery with a collection of designer gear for the Burning Man Festival 2009. miss velvet cream will have a rack of transformative delights for your wearing pleasure.....
