Last Night at Five15 Arts Gallery

The five new members of the Five15 Arts Gallery have a group show exhibiting this month.  We are Brendan Ore, Marc Marlowe, Marlys Kubicek, Sarah O'Donoghue and myself.  Last night was the Third Friday Reception and the turnout was great.  It is wonderful seeing our friends and collectors come by to see what's new and support our new venture in this cooperative gallery.  It was also fun meeting Sarah O'Donoghue who drove up from Tucson last night.  She's our newest member and will be showing her work exclusively in December.  It was also nice to hang with Brendan and get to know him a little better.  He drove in from Yuma for the evening.

I will at the gallery from 1:00 to 5:00 today, if you want to stop by or hang out for awhile.  It's a beautiful day for art viewing!

January - March Printmaking Classes


It is time to register for classes at the Phoenix Center for the Arts.  I am teaching Solarplate Etching and Reduction Linocut, 8 week sessions.  If you have always wanted to try something new, solarplate may be the right choice for you!  If you have trouble getting your prints to register correctly or can't think backwards, then reduction linocut is the class for you.  Either way, no matter your skill level, you will learn something new.  For more information click here.  You may skip the login and just click on Printmaking, to see the details for each class.  Call me if you have any questions or problems registering.  602 750 3845.
