Michael's art focuses on re-imagining subject matter that he comes across in Southern Arizona and New Mexico. He is less interested in creating reality than he is creating something that is new, bright, bold and colorful. Whether it is a staircase, a door, an iconic building or just an old structure that he finds interesting.

Textures of Time: Landscapes and Emotions
Time stands still when we gaze upon the infinite – pondering our place amidst the vast solitude of boundless, natural formations. In one moment, one breath, generations of stories swirl together, blurring the lines between then and now. Pay attention to any feelings or emotions that may arise.
Lauri Kaye - Fine Artist
April 4th – June 4th, 2019
Lauri Marks Kaye has worked professionally as an artist since graduating from Parsons School of Design, New York City, in 1992. She first landed a job as assistant art director at Rolling Stone Magazine and eventually moved on to become art director at NSI Design, NY, producing art and design projects for a variety of corporations and theme restaurants in Manhattan.
Captivated by the beauty and history of the southwest, Kaye decided to make Tucson her home. After years of designing for restaurants she decided to try on a few more hats and opened a restaurant of her own, Create Cafe & Catering Company in the center of town. Kaye used this venue as a forum to curate rotating exhibits of local artists and showcase musicians.
Kaye streamlined her focus in 2014 to the arts establishing a new fine arts business, Create For The People Ventures, drawing commissioned and original “Portrait Stories” using a variety of mediums including metal, wood, tile and glass. She is wildly enthusiastic about her on-going series called, Tucson Portrait Stories; showcasing the people, places and events that make Tucson extraordinary. Subjects range from local iconic landmarks such as Gates Pass, El Tour De Tucson, Sonoran landscapes, Tohono O’odham healer, local musicians, San Xavier Mission and over 30 more. The hand drawings weave together textual information and are layered with photography and digital color. Her artwork can be found in public and private collections and is a staple at several galleries and museums in Tucson.

Kay Mitman - Fine Artist
February 6th – April 2nd, 2019
“I began painting in watercolors at age 62 upon retirement from the Pima County Library system. Watercolors appeal to me because of the wondrous effects of light and motion that can be achieved. This same magical quality can be achieved with acrylics and by the use of an abundance of water in the creative process.
Color and the effect of color as well as the open spaces and unique makeup of the American Southwest are both motivating factors in my art renderings. My need for experimentation cannot be denied and keeps my paintings fresh, lively, and interesting to me as an artist.
Having begun painting at such a late stage in my life has both given me a purpose beyond anything I could have imagined, and is a way of giving back in some small way to the Creator for all the color in Creation; it also gives me the ability to see things and express myself in a manner which would not have been possible otherwise.
I hope you enjoy viewing my work as much as I enjoy presenting it!”
