Desert Corridors — Deadline for entries ONE MONTH away
November 16, 2017 – February 7, 2018 | Main Gallery
Man-made crossings and way stations, desert washes, and riparian areas are all corridors that offer mammals, reptiles, insects, and birds passage to new habitats over land, by water, and through the air. These corridors become super highways through inhabited and uninhabited terrain. Not found on any road atlas, these routes, hopefully safe and preventing collision, connect creatures of all shapes, sizes and species to new horizons. DESERT CORRIDORS begins with what we can see along the path, and continues into the realm of what we can’t; bigger ideas of migration and immigration and concepts of metaphoric consequence that try to answer the age old questions: Where did we come from? Where are we going? and, How do we get there?
Artists from the region are invited to submit 2-dimensional or 3-dimensional works in any media for consideration in this juried exhibition. CLICK HERE FOR THE COMPLETE PROSPECTUS.

Featured Artist: Royce Davenport
November 16, 2017 – January 7, 2018 | Welcome Gallery
Sardine tins, devil’s claws, costume jewelry, saguaro ribs, old toys, car parts, and mouse traps are just some of the things you might find lying around in a little workshop located just east of Tucson called Rancho Milagrito. These odd materials have been getting repurposed and transformed into wonderful and fantastic folk art creations for the past 25 years. Vail, AZ artist, Royce Davenport is the creator. Everything he makes is filled with his heart, his soul, and his incredibly wry wit. Most importantly, the objects Davenport makes share his understanding of the importance of art and culture in our daily lives.
