Celebrating the Desert

In conjunction with the recent Tri-National Sonoran Desert Symposium, the Cafeteria Gallery mounted a show to celebrate this very special place..

I was particularly drawn to the watercolors by Sells, AZ artist Michael Chiago Sr. It’s the first time I’d seen his work — I loved the bright colors and the scenes he chose to depict. Others obviously did too. I saw lots of red “sold” stickers on his pieces.

Patty Tucker is another artist whose work draws in the eye. It’s constructed from a piece of palm frond. When I first saw this piece it reminded me of a giant moth resting on the wall. Neat stuff.

The desert certainly inspires new ways of looking at the world.
