“TAILPIPE DREAMS
Solo Exhibition: Artist Elena Nestico
November 6, 2009 through November 29, 2009
Opening Reception:
Friday, November 13, 2009  7-10 pm
Amberella …sugary & sweet… Gallery & Boutique is pleased to present to you the works of Philadelphia artist Elena Nestico.  The Solo Exhibition, “TAILPIPE DREAMS”, opens November 13, 2009 from 7-10 pm.  The exhibit showcases the various ways in which Nestico captures the industrialized beauty that she is encompassed by.  The artists, “TAILPIPE DREAMS”, are vivid looks into the palette of the artists mechanical mind.
Elena Nestico
Elena Nestico’s fascinations with industrial imagery and machinery began from growing up in the ever encompassing urban landscapes of New York,  Philadelphia, and most importantly Northern New Jersey.  This fascination furthered as she attended the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore and began painting and abstracting the images of these particular landscapes that she found herself constantly surrounded by. Her artwork reflects the disturbing, yet rhythmic beauty of the “human made” machine, and the way that our man made reality interacts and is juxtaposed against the natural world. Whether she is painting and printing train trestles, oil refineries, or abandoned vehicles and motorcycles, her goal is to capture each image in an idealized setting.

My friend Regina aka dj Gun$ Garcia is driven to the maxx!  She’s moving and shaking things monthly (well… daily   ) with the party  she throws once per month…. DOUBLE DUTCH.   I seriously have been in awe of this chick from the day that I laid eyes on her !  Not only is she styled to a T at every waking moment, but she is passionate and driven about what she does.  Regina holds her monthly party at the Barbary, called Double Dutch.  It’s an all female line-up including one guest live performer, two female DJ’s (Lady Prowl & herself, Gun$ Garcia) and two female hosts (Jenny Boom BoomTalea Bella). She had our second party last month and already has the most successful Thursday night party at the Barbary!  She even had a few local celebrities in attendance, by the likes of Amanda Damron from GANG, and DJ Sega!

Don’t miss thiseeeeeeee’re baaaaaaaack!!
