Greg Brush has been trying to get lost since moving to Arizona in 1984. Since then, he has spent every spare minute exploring the Southwest’s outback. Afflicted with chronic wanderlust, Greg has attempted to avoid urban situations whenever possible.

Starting as a photographer in the 1980s, he progressed to digital photography when the technology began to rival traditional film. Greg utilizes a variety of techniques and equipment to create unique images. Time lapse photography is one of his favorite approaches. Some night photographs are a composite of up to 800 individual images compressed into a single frame.

Greg’s photography has been published in a variety of media including magazines, newspapers, calendars, greeting cards, and numerous advertisements.  On occasion, some photographs have been the subject of paintings by fellow Southwest artists.  A shameless self-promoter and philanthropist, Greg has selflessly donated his photography (in the form of wallpaper) for multitudes of nameless computer users.

When not exploring the white areas of cellphone coverage maps, he reluctantly ventures into town for paychecks and supplies.

Lake Powell – Through The Canal #3 by Barbara Kemp Cowlin

I currently live in Oracle, Arizona where I work on my art full-time in a beautiful studio adjacent to my home.
I love to paint. I enjoy printmaking and bookmaking as well. I am working on two series of paintings– one is of overlooked indoor and outdoor details and the other is of water reflections. My work has ranged from landscape to figurative.
I have taught art at all levels from first grade through college. Other experiences include working as a graphic designer, arts administrator and as a full time artist. I have a BFA in Printmaking and a Masters degree in Community College Education with a major in Printmaking. Currently, I offer workshops around Arizona and in my studio.
My work has been included in the City of Phoenix Arts Collection, the University of Arizona Special Collections, Providence Medical Center in Everett, Washington and Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio, First Bancorp Headquarters in Troy, N.C., Baylor University Medical Center as well as the Art in Embassies program at the U. S. Embassy in Bolivia. I’ve had solo shows at the Agua Caliente Ranch Park Gallery in Tucson, Arizona, Rancho Linda Vista Gallery, Oracle, Arizona, Willo North Gallery in Phoenix, and the @ Central Gallery, Burton Barr Central Library, Phoenix. Other  two-person and group shows include the Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix, Tucson International Airport, the Arizona Gallery at the University of Arizona, Casa Grande Art Museum, and numerous other exhibitions throughout the United States.

Sand

“Where Water Meets Sand”

A point-and-shoot New England transplant with a passion for discovering unique natural patterns, Judy fell deeply in love with the wildly diverse and fascinating geology spread across the Colorado Plateau.

Speaking deeply to her soul, Lake Powell is at the top of the list because of its continuously changing, magical draw – some of which is part of this exhibit.

“Where Water Meets Sand” is strong evidence that the lake itself is one talented artist, manipulating sand into some rather incredible mini ‘lakescapes.’ These patterns were captured at water’s edge or slightly above.

Judy thoroughly enjoys not only finding these beautiful artful patterns, but being able to share her discoveries as well.

Please contact Judy at lakeviewfinder@aol.com or 408-402-1704

March 2016 Artist of the Month – Helping Hands

Helping Hands

Helping           Hands           Agency

The Helping Hands Agency is a contracted provider for the Department of Economic Security, Division of Developmental Disabilities. They provide programs and services for adults and children with Developmental Disabilities.

Students attend art classes daily with the Agency’s full-time Art Director. Individuals in the program experience a wide variety of art disciplines while expressing their personality through the medium they enjoy most. The Agency hosts art shows throughout the year. The students artwork has been very well received by the local community and surrounding areas. Their work clearly expresses that “everyone has something beautiful to share.”

The Helping Hands Agency’s goal is to support the individuals we serve and their families as they strive to learn and grow in all aspects of life. We understand the challenges involved in caring for a loved one with a disability. We therefore offer a variety of programs to meet the needs of the person being served and their family.
