Visit the 2nd annual exhibit celebrating the Day of the Dead/el Dia de los Muertos, a day of rich cultural significance in many parts of the world. The Gallery will again sponsor four guest artists from Caborca, Prescott’s Sister City in Sonora, Mexico.  In Mexico, the celebration is colorful with whimsical skulls and skeletons, “papel picado” (perforated paper), and marigolds. On November 2, families gather at an ofrenda, or altar dedicated to the deceased, or at their gravesite, with decorated sugar skulls, candles and their loved ones’ favorite foods and drinks. This exhibit at the Gallery brings together artwork in both 2D and 3D, as local artists represent this joyous day of remembrance that connects the living and the departed.

 

The exhibit coincides with the annual and very popular PCA Theatre production of Ghost Talk, presented on the mainstage theatre, October 24 and 25.

How do you “See Red”? Is it the deep red in a sunset, the red in a woman’s blush or the soft red of a rose petal? Or do you see red as being in a state of annoyance or irritation?  Think about the patina in a metal sculpture, the glowing red in a piece of glass or jewelry, the shiny red of a new car – use your creativity to present Red in a whole new light.

Working with Red as the predominate color, create a piece of artwork that “sees Red”.

Everyone has heard the saying “Water, water everywhere but not a drop to drink”.  Living in Arizona, water takes on a more urgent focus than somewhere like Hawaii and generates many questions.  Will there be enough?  How to conserve or capture water? Or for those living on an island – do they truly see water everywhere? Artists are encouraged to be creative for this show. Possibly a waterfall, a water globe, a single drop on a canvas or a sweeping artwork of the ocean.

Using drips and splats is a way to give energy and movement to your artwork. Artists have the option of interpreting this theme literally or inventing some news ways of artistically dripping, dribbling and splatting.  Painting, printmaking, photography, ceramics, metal and glass--  all have techniques and tools for interpreting this lively theme.

As you traverse streets looking at the buildings, cars, people, sidewalks, landscapes or alleys, you see a number of vignettes or smaller areas that capture your interest. Capture the light, colors, graffiti or landscapes – the options are endless. This show asks artists “What is seen on the streets you travel”?
