Some very unique and thought provoking reliefs, paintings, photographs and sculptures created by the art class 496S at the University of Arizona is now on public exhibition at the Holy Joe Studio located within the Art Gallery on Stone/Speedway. The U. Of A. art class taught by artist and professor Moira Geoffrion, is a capstone course, which prepares the students to excel in the professional art world.
The art exhibition itself focuses on giving new and fresh artists a voice to be heard; a place to not only share their creations, but also to expose the public to new views and opinions. This showing offers great opportunity to view and purchase work by new emerging artists at reasonable prices.
Included in the show is a “Wall-In-Progress” in which any artist or visitor to the exhibition can paint, draw, etc. on the surface as a collaborative on-going work of art.
Students are given the opportunity to not only exhibit in a professional art gallery, but to also get that real-world experience of curating a group show. This involves selecting the art, pricing it realistically for the marketplace, displaying it in a cohesive, visually satisfying manner, advertising to the public… and more! Art students from the UA and Pima College are collaborating on this event.
Chris Broduer’s amazing oil paintings speak directly to the theme of the show. Mimi Daniel has personified the cycles of nature in the Celtic tradition with her Greenmen made from porcelain, encaustic, & oils. Madelaine Sarbo creates with a modern modular paper collage technique.
The Opening Reception for “Can You Hear Me Now?” will be this Saturday, November 6th from 5-7 pm.
(NOTE: The talented singer/songwriter Alisha Peru will be performing at the reception. )
