Local artists featured in fall exhibitions at the Yuma Art Center
Presented by Beltone – A leader in audience health care.
The works of members of the North End Artist’s Co-Op showcase a trio of entirely local exhibitions now on display at the Yuma Art Center.
The central gallery presents the exhibition Amended Viewpoints, where the 14 members of the North End Artist’s Co-op share all new works in a wide variety of media such as ceramics, glass, natural elements, mixed media, paintings, drawings and art at encaustic.
The Yuma Art Center has been home to the North End Artist’s Co-op for over 15 years. The City promotes artists living in Yuma by offering the opportunity to exhibit the works of the cooperative in the United Building, next to the Yuma Art Center and Historic Theater, where their works are on display to the public every year. Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The members of the cooperative are Alma Angelina Aispuro, Jose Dorame, Nathan Downing, Albert Escalante, Holly Hendrick, Morgan Laguna, Andrew Layne, Ariana Lucero, Steven Scott Phillippi, Judy Phillips, Rebecca Taylor, Larry Yanez and Mark Wall.
Altered Perspectives is one of three exhibitions on display in the galleries of the Yuma Art Center, open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Admission is free, but donations are accepted. The exhibitions will be open at least until December 29, with a possible extension.
“Each of the new exhibitions features exciting new work by beloved local artists,” said Lindsay Benacka, Director of the Arts and Culture program. “With so many different media, textures and color palettes represented in these shows, every viewer can enjoy it.”
On display in the West Gallery is You are the, featuring works by local artist Michael Barkley. Created on sharp-edged wooden planks and slabs, Barkley uses a variety of ink wash, pen, ink and paint techniques to create his works. This exhibition challenges the viewer to look through the concentric rings to portals of celestial elements, horizons, skylines and cityscapes.
Exhibited in the North and South East galleries Entwined, featuring fiber art installations by Kellen Meyer. In her solo show debut, this Yuma native interweaves a variety of natural fibers and driftwood into hand-woven works of art that blend crochet, knitting and various weaving techniques to create textured and mystical pieces. . To complete the exhibit, Meyer created a site-specific installation in the front display cases of the Yuma Art Center that features a wave of effortlessly swaying paper and reed petals.
“Despite the wide variety of artwork and artists on display, it’s clear that local artists have been extremely busy and motivated in their studios over the past year or so doing what they do best – creating “said Benacka.
