Art du Jour | Timothy Schirack

March 16 – May 11, 2017 | Garden Bistro

Reception with the artist: Thursday, March 16, 2017 | 5:30 – 8:00 pm

Timothy Schirack will be the next artist featured in the Garden Bistro. Schirack moved to Tucson seven years ago with his wife and sons to soak up inspiration from the magnificent desert.  He is inspired by the flora and fauna, so wildly different than his native Ohio landscape. His work is about breaking down complicated forms to their essence and infusing them with the unique colors of the Southwest.
