(re)View and Imprint Celebration

To celebrate our exhibition of (re)View: Abstract, Land, and the Narrative, we hosted a Walk and Talk in the Galleries with Philip V. Augustin, BK Skaggs, and Melanie Walker. Each of the artists spoke about the inspiration surrounding their artwork, how the exhibited pieces evolved, and the conceptual ideas they are interested in. We were grateful for the opportunity to hear their comments and gain some insight into the work of these three fascinating artists! Special thanks to Philip and Melanie who travelled from New Mexico and Colorado to be with us – we’re glad you could be here!

Following the Walk and Talk was an Artist Reception for both (re)View and Imprint, our sculptural exhibition featuring Alexandra Bowers and Mary Meyer, who both had additional pieces available for our Holiday Sale. Thank you to everyone who came out, enjoyed the artwork, and provided thoughtful conversation!

Allen Dutton Reception

Reconnecting with Friends

Gary Lewellen

This past Saturday evening, despite being bitterly cold, a warm group of friends joined us to welcome the Duttons. Allen Dutton and Marianne Dutton were on-hand to talk about Allen’s new book, reconnect with friends and past students, and make new friends at the closing reception of Strange But True. This exhibit was last shown at the Corcoran Museum in Washington DC in 2000. Gary Lewellen, a past student and close friend of the Duttons played guitar and harmonica to liven up the evening.

Allen discussed his Rhino Ranch and told stories of his herd of rhinos roaming on his northern Arizona ranch. His illustrated Rhino book tells the entire story, but not like Allen can tell it in person.

Strange But True is a collection of images of Arizona that brings back memories of the changes we have experienced over the past 40 years as Arizona has grownup. We all look forward to Allen’s new, soon to be published book, and another concert from Gary in the future.
