DAY FOR NIGHT

February 16 – April 19, 2017 | Main Gallery

OPENING RECEPTION: Thursday, February 16  5:30 – 8:00pm

In the Sonoran Desert the transition of day into night and back again is an ever-changing display that exhibits the subtle and dramatic effects of light and darkness. Beaming sunrises and burning sunsets signal the sequence of the diurnal, the crepuscular, and the nocturnal.  The cycle of each day affects not only the colors of the earth and the sky but also the movements and lives of the plants and the creatures that inhabit them.

Light and darkness stir the senses, evoking mood and activating nature.

CALL FOR ENTRIES | Artists are asked to explore the diurnal, crepuscular, and nocturnal worlds of the Sonoran Desert. The many colors, moods, shapes, patterns, plants, creatures and stories they find will be fascinating. The possibilities are endless. Artists from the region are invited to submit 2-dimensional or 3-dimensional works in any media for consideration in this juried exhibition.

The exhibition will feature some of the most unique bolo ties in Roland and Lila Wadsworth’s collection. All bolo ties will be offered for sale with 100% of the proceeds going to benefit Tohono Chul.

Roland “Bob” Wadsworth was chief engineer for many projects on the Navajo reservation and became an admirer and friend of many talented artists and craftsmen. His fascination with beautiful bolo ties began with the purchase of his first one and the determination to never wear an ordinary tie again.
