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.

Emanation Art Exhibition

Linus Galleries would like to invite you to join us Friday, February 8, 2013 from 5:30 pm to 9:00 pm for the opening reception of the Emanation Art Exhibition (by appointment February 9-17, 2013)

The Emanation Collective Art Exhibition combines the art themes Patterns, Motion, Angles & Curves, Emotion, and Shadows to bring a visually diverse exhibition.  The artworks chosen for Emanation compliment and play off each other with both their subject matter (what is seen) and their various layers of meaning. The art exhibition reflects an outward reaching motion that beings with Emotion and ends with Angles and curves.  Emanation begins with the inner emotional state and ends with what is perceived.

There will be a live drawing demonstration by talented Hollywood artist, Dan Pyle

Artists include:
Adam Clement, Alexander Landerman, Anupama Jain, Azadeh Hussaini, Benjamin Sandness, Carlos Grasso, Cassie Walker, Dan Pyle, Eun Hye Kang, Frana Baruch, Geo Rhode, Ivan Lofstrom, Jamal deJong, Joe Winograd, Jun-Jun Sta.Ana, Kristina Chan, Lena Kaellberg, Leon Vanella, Leroy Lee, Lynn Patron, Marcos Armitaje, Marge Rector, Mary Kay Stam, Matt Zigler, MickyGirardi, Myra/Sydna Feely/ Lattermann
