This city has plenty of history.”
Adams’ newest photographs are a contemporary take on the 16th century Flemish painting movement and 19th Century American Mourning Portraiture. In his new series, dead birds and mammals appear gracefully arranged either underwater or surrounded by flora. His Memento Mori photographs display brightly colored insects manipulated into striking kaleidoscopic patterns. Also on display are images from Adams’ Close to the Ground series: stunning, large-format photographs of commercial airliners flying past and quite near to large buildings.

THIRD FRIDAY EXHIBITION: Halldor Hjalmarson is currently sharing his creations which depict micro landscapes of life in our Sonoran Desert. He draws the eye into his work by showing the dynamic relationships between animal and plant life; and with the use of textures, patterns and color, he adds cohesion to the various elements. As part of the creative process, he sculpts lizards, birds, leaves and cacti… along with many other images. He then casts these sculptures into plaster “press molds” which he uses in making his stoneware creations. He has made a repertoire of several hundred images, and as part of his artistic process, is continually making more. Visitors to his studio will get a glimpse of this process as well as the techniques of composing these elements into low relief clay scenes, and can witness the steps they go through from inception to the final firing.
