Pravus - CLOSED
Phoenix, AZ 85004
Pravus Gallery opened in November of 2006 as a collaborative effort by independent art and curating team The Molten Brothers—Mike Goodwin and Kenneth Richardson—and the owners of Perihelion Arts—Douglas Grant and Amy Young—after working together in a small capacity during the Molten Brothers’ annual custom skate deck invitational exhibit, DECK. Armed with a desire to showcase a wide variety of contemporary art in downtown Phoenix, Pravus opened in the downtown Phoenix arts complex, .antispace, where it resided until its recent relocation to 501 E. Roosevelt, enjoying nearly three times the space, creating the ability to run two separate exhibits simultaneously in this new location.
Pravus has displayed work from a variety of genres including lowbrow, surrealism, pop surrealism, comic, fine contemporary and urban contemporary in mediums that include painting, photography, sculpture, printmaking and custom vinyl and has no limits on either, just that we appreciate the artist’s vision.

On First or Third Fridays past, we always made sure to hike up to .anti_space on Fourth Street and McKinley. One, because we love trying that damn tightrope walk whenever possible, and two, because it used to be the home of one of our favorite art spots, Pravus Gallery. Headed by local art gurus like Kenneth Richardson, Mike Goodwin, Amy Young, and Douglas Grant, Pravus held a reputation for consistently throwing down some slam-dunk exhibitions. The only flaw was its location not everyone is willing to step off the main drag of Roosevelt. That's why when Pravus decided to make its move to the corner of Fifth Street and Roosevelt in early 2008, we started a slow clap that is now group applause among downtown art seekers. Replacing the space that used to be Fleureish boutique, Pravus can now stretch its legs between two large galleries and even has room for Synthetic Compound, a designer toy store formerly part of the nearby Firehouse. Pravus, way to make your move.
