I am really excited to be participating in an upcoming exhibition at the
Tempe Center for the Arts:
"So often, the contemporary art realm is faced with the question "What is it?" This exhibition helps the viewer answer that question and embraces the unusual, quirky and off-beat appeal of
artworks that do not always fit into categories such as painting, drawing and sculpture.
Each artist created a site specific installation or environment for the artwork placed in this exhibtion. The TCA worked with artists, creating story lines, questions and conversation topics for audiences. Several types of interactive games are being made available including brochure scavenger hunts for adults, coloring pages and worksheets for children and social media options
such as Twitter, Facebook and online blogs.
The exhibition featues 12 Arizona artists working in a variety of media and themes, playing with the popular game "Twenty Questions"
Participating artists include:
Ron Bimrose, Tempe
Miro Chun, Phoenix
Mitch Fry, Phoenix
Corinne Geertsen, Mesa
Mary Bates Neubauer, Chandler
Kimberly Nikolaev, Chandler
Christy Puetz, Phoenix
Joe Willie Smith, Phoenix
Kaori Takamura, Carefree
Beata Wehr, Tucson
Denise Yaghmourian, Phoenix
I will be posting images of these amazing artists work soon, but for now, check out the links! I have been working on my Nebulae series- it has grown and multiplied and will include around 25 pieces for the exhibition.
If you are in the area, be sure to come by the Tempe Center for the Arts on Saturday, April 23
from 7-9 for the opening reception. Many of the artists will be there! If you have not yet been to the Tempe Center for the Arts, go! It is an absolutely gorgeous building that looks on to Tempe Town Lake, with many art pieces installed on the grounds. The structure actually mimics nearby Hayden Butte, complete with a copper roof.
Stay tuned for more!
