Join me at Hulas Modern Tiki http://hulasmoderntiki.com/ on Monday evening (2/27) where I will be exhibiting my modern pointillism art to support the Arizona Consortium for the Arts.  This Mahala Monday, the restaurant/bar will give ten percent of all proceeds to this nonprofit arts organization.  Why not grab a few friends and come to downtown Phoenix for drinks, dinner, or both!  I would love to see you and you would be supporting a great cause.

Scarecrow Doxie

I have finally completed my last painting for this weekend’s  Artists of the Superstitions Studio Tour.   Tomorrow, I am taking all my latest works of art (which I have been keeping under wraps all summer/fall, etc.) to the beautiful studio of potter, KimmBerly Ioane. I think her vivid art pots and my pointillism paintings really compliment each other and it is our hope that others will buy both to enhance their home decor.

Speaking of homes, her’s is very hip, of avante garde industrial-design, and in a primitive area next to the base of the Superstition Mountains in Apache Junction., Arizona.  I’m so happy she asked me to exhibit at her place this year (vs. Having to organize my own studio!  Ha!  We artists tend to be a bit messy!)

My modern pointillism paintings exhibited are my Happily Working Dachshund Series of six pieces.  Each work depicts a doxie doing some sort of human or object related job to make their owners happy.  My own doxie is, of course, my muse of many colors!   I have chosen to add some contrast to this series by also including some flat hard-edge areas.  Depicted here is Scarecrow Doxie.  You must come & tell me what you think about each one!

Studio Tour maps are at http://www.artistsofthesuperstitions.com/Map_2_color.pdf  for printing!   Visit us at Studio #3 and then check out other studios nearby.  I think you will enjoy the group’s diversity and talent.

The renowned  Mayo Clinic of Scottsdale has a huge Courtyard Marriott available for their patients and visiting families.

Consider taking a drive out to this beautiful desert area and visit the exhibit through August 2011.

January is the month of Elvis Presley’s birth.  It is a special month for me too!  Barbara Atkinson, Director of the Superstition Mountain Museum asked me to extend my Elvis Art Exhibit in the Bridal Dressing Room of the Elvis Presley Memorial Chapel indefinitely!

 

Elvis Chapel View

The Elvis chapel is a historic site that many Elvis fans and curious guests visit every year.   Admission is free.

 

The original site of the Elvis chapel was at the Apacheland Movie Studio once located a few miles from the museum’s current location.   Many films & TV shows, including the Elvis Presley’s Charro, were filmed at the original Apacheland Movie Studio. Unfortunately, the movie studio burned down except for the barn and historic Elvis chapel in 2004. Both were carefully moved to the scenic grounds of the museum in Apache Junction, Arizona.

If old western movies and TV shows is your thing, this is the place for you.  Come on out!  http://www.superstitionmountainmuseum.org

 

Guitar Elvis

Lights!  Camera! Action!

Apacheland Days is all about old westerns,  movie/TV stars, and legends.   Next weekend (1/14-16) the yearly celebration hosted by the Superstition Mountain Museum in Apache Junction, AZ.   Many films and even Elvis’s movie “Charro” were taped at the original Apacheland Movie Studio once located a few miles from the museum.   Unfortunately, the movie studio burned down except for the barn and Historic Elvis Chapel years ago.

The museum has asked that I display my Elvis Art in the Chapel.   I’m so excited!  If old western movies and TV shows is your thing, this is the place for you.  Come on out!   http://www.apachelanddays.com/
