NOVEMBER 2021 PARTICIPATING ARTISTS
Wood Vases, Tables, Clocks, Sculptures & Crosses
Most of the art pieces you will see are from old-growth wood, ranging from 800 years to over 1,000 years old. My art comes mostly from trees that have fallen by storm or after a fire. Never do I know what the pieces will represent until they talk to me. Mostly in a free-form piece of art. Over the last 50 years, I have pieces that have sold worldwide. The pattern in the wood grain mesmerizes me.
Chrystal Canyon Creations
I pierce copper or sterling silver sheet to create earrings, pendants, ornaments, and wind chimes. The items are annealed, stamped, soldered, polished, and enameled either by torch or kiln.
Geri Bringman Fine Art
Acrylic fine art paintings of the desert southwest, with its strange and spectacular landscape, provides an endless source of inspiration for me in my painting. My most significant influence has been the Mexican and Native American art and culture that is a part of the Old Pueblo. I love their traditional designs and vivid colors, and most of all, their broad, beautiful faces.
Fire Works Stoneware
Ceramic, Hand-thrown Horse Hair and Raku Pottery
My work is hand thrown on the potter's wheel. I decorate the pieces with metallic oxides, glazes, and hand carving. All my work is then finished in a horsehair or raku firing. I make the bowl, vases from big to small, candle holders, and jars.
Mixed Media, Furniture, Home Décor
I create paintings on a hardboard. They are colorful and are representative of the Southwest. The process consists of layering and scraping over and over. It is a technique I developed while building furniture for 25 years. I finish the original paintings with 3-dimensional frames that become part of the final image. I also sell giclée prints on canvas that I hand frame and finish with alder wood.
Candee's Dandy Designs
Jewelry - Leather bracelets for women and men, plus beaded necklace & earring sets
Each piece is designed and handcrafted to be worn and enjoyed by women and men in both work and casual settings. Only the finest materials are used to ensure the originality and quality of each design.
Jewelry, Leather, Mixed Metals
Our jewelry is handmade using the finest quality materials. Our pieces are hand-textured sterling silver and copper. We use Arizona Turquoise and Amethyst from Brazil as the gemstones we incorporate most into our jewelry. We use many different techniques, including wire wrapping, hammering, soldering, etching, fabrication, & patina processes.
Jewelry - stones, sterling silver, metal, leather
I am inspired by the colors and designs of the Southwest. I follow trends in jewelry and create one-of-a-kind pieces, and I love using mixed media to make a piece interesting. I make earrings, bracelets, and necklaces that range in price from $45 - $125.
Udukobong (Udy) Edet
Art by Udy
Oil painting, alcohol ink, landscape, beauty, contemplation
I emphasize the female form and landscapes to evoke feelings of fantasy and contemplation, revelation, or solace. My work is primarily in oils, but I also have used watercolors and alcohol ink. I see my art as suggesting affirmation and harmony. The canvases evoke the mystery of an ephemeral moment.
Tetrachromatic World Art
Painting, Original watercolors, and limited edition art prints
My watercolor art is exceptionally bright, whimsical, and cheerful. Subjects include cities, villages, flowers, animals, and abstracts. I also offer autographed limited edition prints, which are numbered and have a certificate of authenticity, and individually signed greeting cards made by me.
Bettina Fine Art
I am a storyteller, and my stories are told through visual images. My paintings are stories of people, relationships, animals, myths, dreams, and exotic locales painted in the folk art tradition - from the heart. My ideas come from societies, different cultures, and all forms of media. I love to tell a good story through a painting, and ones that use humor and whimsy definitely have a place in the fine art world.
Fine Art Painting and Drawing
I love the desert Southwest and want to share the beauty of the animals, people, and scenery with others. I hope my art will help everyone see and appreciate the uniqueness of the Southwest too. In the past year, I have enjoyed adding more landscapes and abstractions to my artwork.
Handpainted Silk Scarves
My scarves are individually painted using traditional French and Japanese dyes. All scarves are silk of various types , weights, and sizes. All scarves are colorfast and can be washed.
Jewelry, Knitted, crocheted, Mixed media
My jewelry is created from copper wire that is crocheted or "knitted" which includes four different knitting techniques. The wire is embellished with beaded elements, including gemstones, glass beads, raku, and bead weaving techniques. Mixed media designs incorporate variegated yarns, hand-dyed ribbons, and glass or resin beads.
Kim & Krystal Obrzut
Bronze cast lost wax process
I speak with my hands; the clay becomes my voice. My work seeks to capture and symbolize the spirit of my Hopi culture – the oneness of us all – the beauty in harmony and the importance of nature and its gifts. The rhythmic forms undulate a humble reverence for life itself.
Brenda Peo Art
Brenda Peo Art/Facebook
I paint animals with character.. a creative blend of realism and expressionism. Each painting starts with a good gesso base for added texture, followed by layers of oil paints applied with a palette knife. Now adding acrylic inks for added vibrancy.
Sculpture, Raku, animal, sculpture, clay, ceramics
The subjects I choose and the process of raku-firing are aspects of my work that have evolved. The animals I select have particular distinctions which lend themselves to my style. Simplicity in design and a touch of personification, brought together with raku's organic nature, bring the creatures to life.
Jewelry, Colorful Gemstones and pearls
Magnificent gemstones and lustrous pearls are crafted into one-of-a-kind pieces. A cornucopia of color. From simple and elegant to fun and fabulous, these pieces have it all.
Mixed-media, found materials, storytelling, metal, assemblage
As a visual storyteller, I create mixed-media assemblage art and sculpture almost entirely from found materials hand-culled from places both near and far, combining anthropology, history, and art to celebrate life, beauty, freedom, and joy.
Jewelry, Natural stones, pearls, sterling, unique designs
My jewelry is one of a kind for a discriminating customer. It is fun, elegant, natural, handmade, and one of a kind. I use all-natural stone, various metal wires, including sterling silver. The designs are original and for all ages.
Painting, Acrylic, Canvas Board, Limited-Edition Giclee Prints, Matte Varnish, Satin Varnish
My art is a style that conveys feelings of a modern/bygone era fusion. My collection can be somewhat eclectic yet uniformly reflects my feelings of inner peace from repurposing my past into something that brings me, and hopefully others, joy.
Four Winds West
Leather Handmade leather bags and belts
The deep Moorish influence inspires my original leatherwork in our Southwestern culture. Our bags and belts are built with hand tools only, using the finest full-grain leathers and accented with unique handmade conchos and buckles. Designed for convenience and comfort, each is a work of functional art intended for decades of everyday use.
Karen & Bob Samson
Karen Samson Designs
Fiber, mixed media paintings, stained glass
All my work reflects a love for color driven by the SW environment. My color choices and compositions invite viewers to use these visual prompts to enhance their appreciation for artistic creations. Reflections of sunlight and intensity characterize all three media: fiber bowls, mixed media pieces, and stained glass creations.
Mary Sherwood Art Glass
Glass, home decor, garden, color, vibrant
Glass is a fantastic medium that incorporates colors, textures, patterns, and shapes. When working with this medium, it is exciting to see the synergy of glass and light. The interplay of transparency, color, and light in glass is an ever-changing process. Working with glass is a choreographed dance of art, chemistry, and science to achieve the desired result. Each piece is an original creation. Ever-changing, ever beautiful!
Jewelry Copper, Sterling Silver, fiber, cabochons
One of a kind jewelry using copper and sterling silver. Pieces are typically made once, and design is not used again. If I use a design more than once, I change something to make it unique. I use different types of cabochons so that there is a variety of designs.
NellieEmma Fiber Art
Fiber art, home, and patio décor
My work expresses the culture, plant life, and colors of Southern Arizona and Mexico and features whimsical and humorous themes. My pillows are one of a kind, and many have an unexpected combination of prints and trims that create a unique design. Included in my work are pillows made from fabric that I hand-dye.
Mirage & Bird Botanicals
Home/Décor, Realistic, Desert Decor, Permanent, Sculptural
Sculptural desert botanical designs created with cacti, succulents, flowers, branches, and more-some in handmade Hypertufa vessels.
Circle of Iron Forge
Metal sculpture furniture
I forge, and weld steel and metal found objects into sculptures, usually with an organic or botanical theme. The found objects are recycled and repurposed into plants and animals, and my pieces often have an environmental message.
Creative Exposures Photography by Karen Wright
Photography, jewelry, home décor
With bold colors and delicate details, my photographs have often been mistaken as paintings. Whether capturing dramatic summer storms or the opening of delicate flowers, my art depicts the beautiful desert around us. My images have been included in several publications, including my recently-released book "Queen of the Night: A Rare Beauty", which features my pictures of the elusive night-blooming cereus and information about this fantastic plant.
