Vena started putting on art shows in 2014, and started, State of the Art Shows.

Art can make you feel.  Art can make you think.  Art can do more than simply match the couch.  We want you, the artist, to see someone want your art, to watch them take it home because your art touched them, their heart or their mind, maybe both.  We want you, our patrons and public, to find art that you come back to over and over.  We want you to find a visual representation of what you feel, what you think.  We want you, the artist, and you, our patrons and public, to connect with each other through art.

State of the Art Shows, puts on just that, State of the ART Shows! RockStar Gallery is our home gallery, and we occasionally will have special shows at other venues. Like us on Facebook to keep up to date with shows and call for arts.

Spontaneous Combustion at Rockstar Gallery: Bringing  two art forms together, art and poetry!
An Ekphrastic Poetry Experience. Poets, join us for this one of a kind contest, based on Allen Ginsberg’s famous phrase “First thought best thought” which described the Beat poets’ love for spontaneity and immediacy in the arts. You are invited to contemplate artwork by the featured artists at Rockstar gallery and to write a poem in response to one of the pieces. Yes, you will turn down your inner editor and tune in to what the art says to you in the moment. Poets will have one hour to pen an ekphrastic poem, which they will read to an audience of listeners, posting their poem beside the piece that inspired it. The audience will then vote on their favorite poem of the evening. Editing is overrated! It is time to just combust!
