THIRD FRIDAY EXHIBITION: Madison Creech is inspired by bird wings and flight, and amazed by their aptitude for migration and nest building.

The scientist desires understanding, so he domesticates the bird to gain access into its world.

THIRD FRIDAY EXHIBITION: “Fugue in Dark and Light” – Photography by Luis Salazar. Presented as part of PhotoTapas, a Valleywide celebration of photography. Over several decades, Luis Salazar’ has built a career on forms—architectural and photographic. Taking on organic, globally-conscious forms and materials in his architecture, Salazar utilizes the human form as his primary muse in his photographic work. This series takes this concept and transfers it to a series of dance movements expressing the relationship between darkness and light. Combining the dance movements with the reflection of light on the dancers gowns on a dark background gives a fugue in dark and light during a performance. The idea was formulated four years ago while watching various ballets and modern dance performances.

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.
