Everyone that lives in Arizona knows that in the winter months we attract a lot of SNOWBIRDS. A lot of these birds from all over America and Canada have flown north but there are a few of these strange birds still here.
The exhibition at the Art Gallery on Stone/Speedway has some of these creatures created by local artist Charles Spillar. Besides the Snowbirds this exhibition is joined with some of Arizona’s other strange creatures created by local professional artists Margot Huntingtion, Bob Kray and Melissa Miller.
If you enjoy viewing art that is a “little different” you will be enjoy this unique showing. The opening reception to meet the artists is Saturday, May 7. This exhibition runs through Saturday June 4.

This exhibition features the works of Christine Broduer, Stephanie Dammer, Dena Eichen, Nicole Lavely, Lauren Russel, Kashka Stitt and Chelsey Yingling.
