Sonoran Shades exhibit opening reception – Phoenix, Arizona

The Herberger Theater Center (HTC), located at 222 E. Monroe in downtown Phoenix, invites the public to the free opening reception for Sonoran Shades, an exhibit of paintings by Robert P. Meyer, on First Friday, August 4, 5:30-7:00pm. Meet the artist, enjoy live music by Nick Heward and no-host bar in Bob’s Spot Lounge.

Sonoran Shades is an exploration of shades of color in the desert southwest. Robert draws and paints the spectrum as he sees it, bright and big. How do you see color in your world?

Meyer began drawing at an early age and has always been inspired by the landscapes around him. After graduating from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting and Drawing, and raising a family with his wife, he opened a design business in Tempe. Meyer incorporates many of the shapes and colors that exist in the desert Southwest flora around him, even in his own backyard.

Curated by Carrie Meyer, the artwork is on display and available for purchase through
August 29. Sponsored by Billie Jo and Judd Herberger, the Herberger Theater Gallery is a self-funded exhibition program that promotes contemporary art by Arizona artists. Gallery hours are weekdays, 10:00am-5:00pm, during performances and by appointment.

Park for $6 at the Arizona Center (Fillmore/Fifth Street) weekdays after 5pm. Purchase validation at the Herberger Theater Box Office before the reception. For information, contact Laurene Austin at 602-254-7399, Ext. 105.

Deadline: March 31, 2017 – Society of Arts + Crafts Artist Awards

Free to apply: Apply Now!

The Society of Arts and Crafts welcomes applications for the 2017 Artist Awards.

Every other year, the Society awards $3,000 each to three craft artists living in New England. As a mission-driven non-profit, the Society continues to support craft artists through opportunities such as this and we are honored to continue to award artists. This is a merit based award, yet we do take your cover letter into consideration as this, like all juried awards, are subjective. To be eligible, you must be living in New England.

This year, Ellen Wieske, 2010 Artist Award Winner and Jeweler, and Marilyn Zapf, Assistant Director at the Center for Craft, Creativity and Design, will join Luiza deCamargo, Associate Curator at the Society of Arts and Crafts, to jury the applications.

The Society believes that craftspeople have a knowledge of materials and an expertise of technique. Traditionally, craft has been defined by material — wood, ceramics, glass, textiles, and metal — and the techniques used to transform raw material into objects. We acknowledge that contemporary craft often challenges our notions of technique and material, and we honor these new expressions. If you believe your work does not meet this definition yet still falls under the purview of craft, please explain in your cover letter. No paintings, photographs, drawings, or traditional sculpture will be reviewed. Previous winners are ineligible to apply.

Deadline: March 31, 2017
