Jet Studios has a history - what started as a carburetor repair shop has become a space for expression. For fun, for art, for spectacle, for entertainment. Today, we are attempting to maintain the feeling of community that once was here, create an atmosphere of days gone by, and introduce whatever presents itself as new. The goal is to have building shows where all four units participate by rolling up their doors and presenting multiple shows in one location - a tradition of days gone by. We also hope to provide a space for anyone to use, if a bit of space is needed.
With each show, the ideas become more cohesive. The Calibration show was the result of our improvements - proof of what happens when a group of artists work together to surprise everyone and themselves. Thank you to everyone who showed up to Calibration. A special thanks also to Pyramid Breweries and curator Jose Cerda - and to the artists: RAS1, Ron Chatman, Marco Saiz, Raul Zarate, Mike Ripper and Raul’s brother Steven Zarate (who hung most of the show).
The images below are a preview of the night. For the entire gallery, go to the Flickr link for the photo set.
If you missed the last show, we hope to see you at the next!
