ABOUT BISCUIT STREET PREACHER
Robby Martin, AKA Biscuit Street Preacher (b. 1969) is an artist, poet, writer and philosopher. He finds inspiration in the world around him. Biscuit learned to observe his surroundings during his childhood, as he drove throughout the country with his father in a 1972 Blue Pontiac Firebird. Tapping into great thinkers and artists from the contemporary world and the past, he believes “there is more to be discovered … but there is far more to be rediscovered.” The artist lives in downtown Las Vegas with his wife and daughter.
ABOUT SCRATCH & DENT
Rooted in the vibrant colors and energy force-field that Biscuit Street Preacher’s art is known for, the new works in this show are conceptually eclectic. Each painting in the show has the ability to stand-alone and provides immediate and interesting content. Much like finding treasures in an attic, these paintings are each unique works of art, rather than pieces of a puzzle. The show will appeal to emerging collectors and downtown dwellers, with the majority of pieces 36x36” and priced under $1,000.
ABOUT AMANDA HARRIS GALLERY OF CONTEMPORARY ART
Amanda Harris Gallery of Contemporary Art is in downtown Las Vegas’ 18b arts district. The gallery is on the ground floor of Soho Lofts, attached to the speakeasy lounge, The Lady Silvia. While the hallway leading to the gallery is darkly lit, the walls inside the exhibition area are pristine and white. Committed to expanding the dialogue surrounding art in Las Vegas, the gallery first opened its doors in late 2011, with a focus on emerging local and west coast artists. Gallerist Amanda Harris studied art history in Boston and Florence, Italy before moving to Las Vegas in 2007.
