Spirit Animals at Rotofugi Gallery

Rotofugi Gallery invites you to join them on the evening of Friday, March 4, 7-10pm for the opening of Spirit Animals, new works by Valency Genis.

The gallery has featured Valency’s wonderful sculptures in group exhibits in the past and wanted to bring you a wider selection of these amazing pieces, so this will be a full gallery solo exhibit!

While studying for her BFA at the University of New Mexico, Valency discovered that she had the power to create creatures and control their aesthetics, while minimizing the tragedy associated with taxidermied animals. She takes an almost Dr. Frankenstein-like glee in crafting her unique animals, drawing on influences ranging from Dr. Seuss to Natural History Museum dioramas. She graduated in 2011 and has since exhibited her works continuously at galleries throughout the US and abroad.

Valency will be in attendance at the opening reception.

For those unable to attend, exhibit pieces will be offered to the gallery preview list on the day of the opening, beginning at 2pm Central (email goes out at 10am), you can sign up at previews.rotofugi.com.

Exhibit continues through March 27, 2016.
