Gallery Season

The Exhibit Schedule is as follows:


LIGHT AND SHADOW 

September 2 - October 5

Opening reception: Friday, September 5    5 - 7 pm

Art Walk: Friday, September 26  5 - 7 pm

Light refreshments and beverages served at both functions

Shadows are straightforward; cast a light on an opaque object and a shadow is born. Light and shadow visually define objects.

Sculptural piles of rubbish become fascinating studies in light and shadow when illuminated from just the right angle.

With light, shadows can be manipulated to resemble entirely new shapes in any media. As an example, artists use light and shadow to create contrast, atmosphere or varying tones.

So, turn on some light, find the shadows and create your own “fascinating” piece of artwork.

October 6 - November 1

Opening reception: Friday October 10     5 - 7 pm

Be part of our 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.  In Mexico, special songs, poems, food, toys, and altars are created. Skulls, skeletons, candles, “papel picado” (perforated paper) and marigolds are all part of the iconography that artists can interpret.   Artwork in both 2D and 3D will represent this joyous day of remembrance that connects the living and the departed.

Opening reception: Friday, January 16     5 - 7 pm

Art Walk: Friday, January 23  5 - 7 pm

Light refreshments and beverages

served at both functions

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”.

Art Walk: Friday, March 27   5 - 7 pm

Light refreshments and beverages

served at both functions

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.

Capture the light, colors, graffiti or landscapes – the options are endless. This show asks artists “What is seen on the streets you travel”?
