“Tributaries at The Shemer Art Center and Museum:
I am pleased to announce that The Shemer Art Center and Museum of Phoenix has asked me to curate their summer show and in doing so I have been working with some amazing local talents in a realm far from photography-based work. “Tributaries” spotlights the artistic production of four valley artists who are utilizing one of our worlds most basic and fundamental elements; water. The confluence of these artistic insights collectively creates a unique way to mentally absorb the diversity of this vital substance through a range of concepts, and varying disciplines. By focusing on the showcase of installation and location-based works, I invite the audience to experience the ways in which water can be applied and perceived through contemporary art.
The exhibition will open June 7th and will continue hanging through July 31st. There will be an opening reception June 21st from 7-9PM. The Shemer Art Center and Museum is a non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the live of the City of Phoenix and Arizona residents by fostering an appreciation of the arts through classes, seminars, and exhibits. They are open Tuesday through Saturday 10:00AM – 3:00PM and Thursday Evenings from 6:30-8:30. For more information please visit their website.
