I am excited to be a part of this energetic little gallery - The Z House Gallery and Boutique! The Grand Opening Celebration is this weekend! Both Saturday and Sunday, there will be live music on the patio, food, kid's activities, and art demonstrations. Inside the gallery is an amazing collection of art by more than 20 artists! Look for the little bungalow at 2320 East Route 66 (Sante Fe Ave.) just west of the 4th St. intersection. You will find the complete schedule of events, including artists' demos at www.zhousegallery.com. I will be doing a painting demo on Saturday, 3-5pm and Sunday, 1-4pm. Look forward to seeing you!
I know that I posted this image earlier in the summer, but now that 9/11 is here again, I think it's okay to post it again as a reminder for all of us. If you are in the Valley and able to stop by Tempe Beach Park, do so tomorrow. It will only be up throughout the day. There are 2996 flags - one for each person who lost their life that day and each flag carries a yellow placard with their name. It is a moving memorial and tribute that is a must see. Giclées of this painting are available for purchase.
