Walter Matia‘s bronze titled Golden Rule ignites my belief that sculpture can be dynamic again!

and who would have believed a large painting of rocks had the potential to soothe ???  William Shepherd challenges your senses with an oil on panel measuring 35″ height X 59″ width.

The West Select is an invitational exhibition on view at the Phoenix Art Museum from November 10, 2013 to December 31, 2013.  Thirty four (34) different artists feature two to four artworks each consisting of paintings, drawings, sculpture or photography.  Six of these artists received awards and one additional artist’s painting was purchased by the Men’s Art Council, to be gifted to the permanent collection of the Phoenix Art Museum.

Fiction as Instructional Text on Navajo Textiles

Thursday, August 29th, 2013 | Collector Savvy tips, General | No Comments

Kayenta Crossing & Beyond the Loom

 

Mark Sublette’s latest murder mystery hinges on his chief character, Charles Bloom, falling in love first with an attractive and witty Navajo weaver and secondarily with high-quality Navajo textiles. The by-product of this engaging story is your exposure to the basics of collecting American Indian weavings.

Information gained in Sublette’s novel is further expanded by Ann Lane Hedlund’s modest fact-driven book Beyond the Loom  Keys to Understanding Early Southwestern Weaving.

Together they represent painless learning.

Dr. Hedlund also stages hands-on textile workshops designed to deepen your ability to discern characteristics of Southwestern weavings, held at the University of Arizona in Tucson, AZ.  Ann functions as Program Director of the Gloria F. Ross Tapestry Program at the U of A.  An interesting sidelight, Gloria F. Ross was Helen Frankenthaler’s sister.

Both books are available through Amazon.com.
