City Arts Salon at Sharktown
155 Cecil B Moore Avenue, Studio 3D
CITY ARTS SALON MARCH FIRST FRIDAY EVENT
Philadelphia, PA: On Friday, March 2, 2018, from 6 pm to 10 pm, enjoy an evening of art, music, food, and stimulating conversation at the CITY ARTS SALON at Sharktown, 155 Cecil B. Moore Avenue, Studio 3D.
The City Arts Salon proudly presents “Fluctuations,” featuring the art of Amir Mark Lyles, Keshida Layone, and Robb Spath
Amir Mark Lyles was born and grew up in Harlem, NYC, where he attended arts-focused public schools. A talented illustrator, Lyles is extremely versatile in media and subject matter. Past and present life experience, multi-cultural history and legacy, as well as so-called classical works all influence his style. A returning CAS exhibitor, Lyles has shown in numerous galleries and art events since his 2009 solo debut at Diverse Arts Gallery, Austin, TX. He has since been commissioned by authors, musicians, and other visual artists, and has private and institutional collectors across the country and around the world. From 2014-2016, Lyles and his family owned S.O.N. A.R.T. Gallery and Gift Shop in the Mt. Airy section of Philadelphia.
Keshida Layone is a native New Yorker, born and raised on Long Island, where he was nurtured from an early age to find his own artistic path by a loving tribe of women and a few good men. Layone is self-taught and inspired by all things in nature and space. Painting on old canvas found in junk yards and second hand stores, and on wood surfaces discarded at construction sites, Layone feels that “every fiber of his emotions is bled onto the canvas.” He was accepted on the Bridgeman Library Images website, one of the world’s leading distributors of fine art, cultural and historical media for reproduction. He has exhibited in group art shows, coffee shops, restaurants, and galleries in New York, North Carolina, and Philadelphia.
Robb Spath is a native of Oswego, NY, and has a BFA in Theatre Arts from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. He has exhibited his work at the William Way Community Center, as well as multiple times at Off The Wall Gallery at Dirty Frank’s in Philadelphia. His work has also been featured in ARTDICTION, Not Random Art, and most recently in CARPAZINE magazine.
Photographer Kenny White hosts the City Arts Salon in his spacious Fishtown/West Kensington studio, part of the Sharktown studios complex. In a relaxed, unpretentious atmosphere, artists, community members and enthusiasts meet, and artists have a chance to network with one another. In addition to visual arts of all kinds, City Arts Salon presents a wide variety of performing artists, including musicians, poets, vocalists, and dancers.
