THIRD FRIDAY EXHIBITION: Join us at Mother Bunch Brewing in May to experience the fine art work of Paige Reesor! Paige loves to paint realistically with intense bright colors. She usually focuses on portraits, with these artwork series dealing with seductive female faces and another with juxtaposition political figures. The female faces show a variety of facial expressions, along with hair colors ranging anywhere from natural tones to pink or blue. My juxtaposition political figures show them placed with objects opposing their time period in history, like Franklin Roosevelt with a skateboard.  The paintings express a pop culture and graffiti-like reference. They are not meant to be viewed with a political agenda, but instead something clever that celebrates American history.

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.
