Denny Carriere Featured Artist

Ajo artist Denny Carriere is the featured artist at Art Under the Arches Gallery this month.

Denny works in egg tempera, a very old technique dating back more than 2000 years. It was the technique used by the Italian Renaissance painters until 1500 when it was overtaken by the invention of oil paints.

The opening reception is Friday, January 8 at 5:30 pm.

Ajo Street Art Happening — Part 3

It was a windy day in Ajo but that didn’t seem to hinder the artists working in the Plaza alley. I was amazed to see how some of the works had progressed since yesterday.

There were a lot of visitors today — some sauntered over after the Second Saturday and Ajo Regional Food Festival festivities, others came just to see the art and meet the artists.

Mike (DaWolf) Baker said some of the artists were working until nearly midnight last night. Some people brought refreshments, there was music and an all-round good evening. If you aren’t busy tonight, check out the art in the alley. 🙂


The Red Show 2014

The Red Show 2014

The Red Show is a much-anticipated event in Ajo, kicking off Valentine’s Day with bright beautiful colors.

The show opened February 15 this year and will run until the middle of March. If you haven’t seen it yet, plan to stop by Ajo’s Plaza Gallery. You’ll discover a variety of media including painting, collages, photography, pottery and some surprises.

Several pieces have already sold (look for the little red dots) — great news for the artists. 🙂
