Out in the desert there is much to be found; behind every rock, stories abound.
Every stratum of earth within the 100,000 square miles of the Sonoran Desert contains the history and lore of the people and creatures that walked them. Since the dawn of time people have visually recorded the events that surrounded them; our present day multicultural civilization is no different.
SONORAN STORIES will present engaging chronicles of the quixotic oracles, factual histories and puzzling mysteries found in the Sonoran Desert; relayed and conveyed by the creative hands and minds of artists of all kinds. Those Arizona Artists who seem to know every in and out and roundabout the desert offers, proffered with intelligence, emotion, wisdom and wit. Every picture tells a story. Don’t it?
Artists are asked to contribute imaginatively narrative works that allow complex personal and universal themes to unfold before the viewer’s eyes. Works that redefine the notion of storytelling. 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 curated exhibition.

Queen of the Night 2019
June – July, 2019 | Entry Gallery
For one night each year, this fragrant and stunning flower reveals itself to anyone lucky enough to greet it. To celebrate the treasured Peniocereus greggii or night-blooming cereus, in 2019 an exhibition in the Entry Gallery will feature the Queen of the Night in all her glory.
For 2019, artists are asked to contribute works that represent the Peniocereus greggii plant: the bloom, flower, cactus, tuber or fruit. Artists can submit 2-dimensional or 3-dimensional works in any media for consideration in this curated exhibition. The Entry Gallery is an intimate space that only allows for a small number of works.
