A highly successful exhibition from New York city is being shared with Arizona where it is attracting record crowds at Tucson botanical gardens. “Frida Kahlo: Art, Garden, Life” focuses on the famous Mexican painter and her “Blue House” in Mexico City. We take you to that exhibit.
Several events are planned for the 27th Annual Art Detour in Phoenix, an event Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton calls “one of the most important events in Phoenix’s calendar.” Catrina Kahler, Artlink Board President and Phoenix painter and sculptor John Randall Nelson, will tell us more about Art Detour.
Phoenix-based painter and sculptor Eddie Mitchell is on the short list to be named to the 100 Painters of Tomorrow, a competition judged by art experts from all over the world. He was chosen for the short list from among 4,200 painters from around the world. The final 100 will be chosen by the end of the summer, and their work will be exhibited at London’s Institute of Contemporary Arts in 2014, and it will be published in a forthcoming book. Mitchell will talk about his art and his nomination.
