Art du Jour | Alexandra Bowers

October – December, 2017 | Garden Bistro

Art du Jour features artwork by local and regional artists displayed throughout the dinning rooms of the Garden Bistro. The work of Alexandra Bowers is currently featured in the Bistro. Bowers is a Phoenix based artist who is inspired by her natural surrounding environment. Bowers uses data collected during her explorations to produce wood burned studies of the plants and animals that she finds along the way. Her work brings awareness to the unique plant and animal species that survive in an extremely harsh climate while simultaneously adapting to human encroachment.   Image . Alexandra Bowers .
