The Elements – Earth

November 19, 2021 – February 2, 2022

EARTH is the first exhibition in the series, The ELEMENTS. The series will investigate how artists utilize the elements of fire, air, water, and earth as medium, process, and subject. And how, as a subject, these elements reflect some of the social, economic, political, and environmental issues Arizona currently faces.

The exhibitions of FIRE, WATER, and AIR will follow. The sequence of the three projects will be determined by the number and quality of the entries received.

The crux of each installment is to contemplate human presence and responsibility (or lack of); move toward, hover, and dig at the intersection of art and science, all the while remaining focused on medium, process, and subject; never losing sight of the beauty, wonder, and essence before you.

The Elements – Earth features 85 works from 41 Arizona artists including:

David Adix, Timothy Arand-McIlrath, Helen Baribeau, Susanna Battin, Tom Baumgartner, Jan Bell, Cathi Borthwick and Sharon Richards, Sasha Case, Nancy Charak, David Christiana, Hanna Coy, Diana Creighton, Patrick Doss, Olivier Dubois-Cherrier, Karen Fisher, Jill Friedberg, David Griffin, Lyn Hart, Tracy Holmes, Brian Hooker, Kate Hoover, Margit Kagerer, David Knorr, William Lesch, Kate Long-Hodges, Susan Lyman, Jan Mayer, Anne Muñoz, Danielle Neibling, Len Poliandro, Curt Pradelt, Shelley Rothgeb, Lyle Rayfield, Dee Ruff, Dana Senge, Matthew Valiquette, Virginia Vovchuk, Paul Waid, Shelly White, and Janet Windsor
