We had several extremely fascinating ladies attend this fun Spring Miniature show to launch the summer in Tucson!
A blast was had by all, the stories that Mary told about the advertising and art scene in New York and Manhattan had us laughing!! A very good thing.
Diana, as usual, is a completely lovely, beautiful woman and fabulous, generous and talented artist. The tremendous team working with her created a successful event.
The Opening June Reception for the Platform Galleries, Dada and 6th on Sixth space was inspiring! It was really a joy to converse with all the artists and see the talent. Mingling with the members of this group really creates great discussion. The turnout was wonderful and the evening weather was perfect. Nancy Pohanic's art and sculpture was inspired by dance and movement and I was so pleased to see her work!
It is sad that it will be closing. More promotion and media buzz initiated by the galleries would create a stronger presence, during a time when many will be staying in town.
Gallery 801 is a fun gallery to visit and the work that Steven Derks is doing is really impressive. I was there for a TRAC (Tucson Revivalist Artist Collective) show and was impressed by the quality of the work and the artists Derks represents. I too enjoy Carolyn Anderson's sentimental dog paintings- she is becoming like Tucson's "Blue Dog" (NOLA) or maybe even our version of "Ron Burns". Gallery 801 is really an asset to the Tucson Arts scene and one of the Old Pueblo's undiscovered gems.
Hands down, the best gallery in Tucson!
Caroline Anderson's large soulful dog paintings are great too. She's like Tucson's own "Blue Dog". You can see her stuff online at www.muttbutt.com .
Gallery 801 is a really interesting art space. I really like Steven Derk's sculptures. Worth stopping in and checking out what is new.
Lovely and astute proprietress; if you don't see what you like out front (which seems unlikely) ask to see what's in back.
Always has some outstanding art on exhibit - and maybe some less outstanding, but always worth a look.
