Michael Sherrill Retrospective - at the Arizona State University Art Museum from February 29th to June 27th, 2020. In this exhibit of his delicately rendered sculptures, Michael Sherrill seeks to elicit a sense of wonder from viewers and to make them see things afresh. Working with clay, glass and metal, his exquisite floral forms have the allure of Martin Johnson Heade’s passionflower and orchid paintings and the botanical engravings of John James Audubon. This is an exhibit well worth seeing!
David Hockney’s Yosemite and Masters of California Basketry at the Heard Museum in Phoenix On display through April 5, 2020 - David Hockney’s Yosemite and Masters of California Basketry highlights the impact that Yosemite has had over time and space on artistic production, from the valley’s original Indigenous inhabitants to one of the most celebrated artists of the 20th and 21st centuries, David Hockney, with a presentation of his digital images of Yosemite. Expand your horizons at this exhibit.
