New gallery opens on downtown Phoenix’s Roosevelt Row

[Source: Lilia Menconi, Phoenix New Times] — Wayne Rainey is at it again.  The owner of Holgas and MonOrchid can easily be credited as a major mover in the downtown arts scene.  And he’s debuting his latest art space, Bokeh Gallery, in the MonOrchid building.

Rainey, who has worked as a commercial and fine art photographer for over 20 years, has noticed a gap in downtown Phoenix: a lack of photography-only galleries.  “It’s the kind of thing I’ve been hungry for,” Rainey says.  So, with the help of fellow photographer (and studio space tenant at MonOrchid), Jacques Barbey, Bokeh Gallery will dedicate all its shows to fine photography.

Rainey says they’ll bring in world class photographers and, so far, he’s been surprised by the enthusiastic responses he has received from contacts in the industry.   [Note: To read the full article, visit New gallery opens on downtown Phoenix’s Roosevelt Row.]
