On Saturday, Nov. 14, you can check out one of Tucson's up-and-coming artists at Tiny Town Gallery (174 E. Toole Ave.). The exhibit will feature pieces by Alexsey Kashtelyan who has worked in town as a poster artist for bands, but also as a graphic design assistant under Lisa Frank at her now-infamous Tucson headquarters.

However, unlike his technicolor former gig, Kashtelyan's first solo show will feature all black and white sketches using India ink. The dozen or so pieces are all relatively small, between 8 and 12 inches, and will primarily be "portraits of friends and such."

"There's really no conceptual basis. It's just things I like to draw," Kashtelyan says, adding, "Mostly triangles and girls."

In the past, Kashtelyan has penned posters for local bands, including Hank Topless, Ohioan, Young Hunter and two of the bands playing the opening night event: Mastodonna and Ghostal. Dadsdad will also be playing the event as their first show. Kashtelyan says his "main drive" now is to sustain himself as an artist through his band poster work.

The art showing and concert will kick off at 6 p.m. on Saturday. The admission price is to be announced. For more information on this and other events at Tiny Town Gallery, visit the venue's Facebook page.
