Gallery hours: 10am - 5pm every day.

Theme for December: Quilt Wall 6x6 square

A section of wall will have a grid of 6x6 inch squares. Each participating artist will do a piece of art to hang in the square. When done, it resembles a quilt.

Featured Artist

Cindy Smith

Cindy Smith was born in Denver, Colorado and still calls Colorado home for most of the year. As a young high school graduate she was prompted by her father to go to school to be either a secretary, nurse, or teacher—the accepted career choices for a young woman in the 60’s. It was suggested that she should at least get her MRS degree if she went to college. So, in the fall of 1965 she went off to Colorado State University and much to her father’s surprise, eventually earned a degree in Business, Data Processing and also met her future husband George. She and George lived in Summit County, Colorado for eight years and had an adorable baby girl. As a stay-at-home mom, Cindy dabbled in all sorts of creative endeavors from, quilting, macramé, leather work, toile painting, stained glass, crocheting and knitting and most of all throwing pots. While her daughter was in preschool she spent many hours at the pottery studio at Colorado Mountain College in Breckenridge. She also spent many hours at craft shows selling her work.

When Cindy and her family moved back to Denver in the early 80’s she went to work in the corporate world. Throughout the years she worked as an IT Manager and Customer Service Manager to name a few jobs and although these jobs kept her more than busy, in the back of her head there was nagging feeling that she missed the creative part of her life.

In the late 90’s during a family vacation to Santa Fe, Cindy fell in love with some beadwoven bracelets she spotted in a gallery. In usually Cindy fashion she said “I can make those.” So, fifteen years and a room of beads later, she really can make those. An early retirement has given Cindy time to pursue what she has found to be her true calling -- weaving tiny little shiny seed beads into beautiful jewelry. Each one of a kind little treasure takes many hours of work and is her passion. These days when she’s not beading she’s teaching beading classes in Colorado and in Mesa, Arizona where she and her husband now live part of the year.

Our visiting artists for December will be:

Featured Artist

Roxann Beckman

My name is Roxanne Beckman and I have a tremendous affection for everything that is nature. I have had a serious interest in art and photography since I was a young child. Using my brownie box camera to capture the images surrounding me always filled me with anticipation and wonder as I waited for the finished photographs to be developed. In high school I worked at expanding my knowledge of all things photographic, including darkroom and enlarging techniques, and black and white imaging, by taking after-school and weekend classes, as well as high school graphic arts classes. At the same time I was developing a love of painting and drawing and often did sketches or acrylics of friend’s boats, cabins, etc.

My art pursuits took a back seat when I was bit by the flying bug in college, and I devoted my time and resources to becoming a professional pilot. My career in aviation has afforded me the opportunity to visit a great deal of this beautiful country and photograph much of her spendor. About a year ago I decided to devote as much time as I could to the redevelopment of my art in the hopes that I may, at some point, be able to pursue this creative endeavor as a full time vocation. Although I have always enjoyed working with my hands, only recently have I found myself developing a love of wood working as well. In combining these two interests I have begun creating both original mirrors and picture frames which incorporate many of the elements of the southwest such as saguaro ribs, copper and turquoise. Each of my mirrors is an original; and each frame is created in harmony with the photograph it surrounds to complete a unique package showcasing the story each picture tells. I also make one-of-a-kind tables, trying to incorporate many elements of the southwest in their design.

Living in the desert southwest inspires me in my creations, and I hope that you too will enjoy the works that I create.

Featured Artist

Jen Hocking

Visiting the Gallery

Feb. 6 - 10, 1 - 4PM

Born in 1963 to a family of artists and writers, Jennifer Hocking was raised in a home that encouraged creative exploration. Emerging from such a rich environment, she carried an intrinsic, critical sense of form, fluidity, color and beauty coupled with a thoughtful intellect. Drawing from both the mundane and profoundly spiritual, she left a career that offered a limited creative outlet to give birth to her son, an inspired time during which her creative energy demanded exploration. Working initially in highly detailed polymer clay ornaments and jewelry, she allowed herself to embrace a dynamic exploration of various mediums, including abstract painting and glass art. Recently settled into a new home and studio in the Arizona desert, she has returned to polymer clay with clarity of expression. Mosaic collages of shape, color and texture, her work incorporates components from past endeavors, including wire, glass and metal beads, handmade papers and pigment powders. Deeply intuitive and self-taught, she is an artist who's voice has grown and evolved from childhood through life's experiences, resulting in unique works that are at the same time highly individualized yet representative of common threads that unite us all.

Our visiting artists for February will be:

Featured Artist

Madonna Lane

Visiting the Gallery

March 29 - 30, 1 - 4PM

Madonna M. Lane was born and raised in the Midwest and moved to the Rocky Mountain region in the early 1960’s. Family moves allowed for extensive travel though out the United States, which enhanced her observation of nature and a deep love of the beautiful country that God created with a profound desire to express those feelings in fresh, transparent watercolors.

Seeking to improve her creativity, Ms. Lane has participated in watercolor/water media workshops in Colorado, Vermont and Arizona with internationally known author and artist, Zoltan Szabo, prior to his death. She has also taken workshops from distinguished professionals Rick Brogan, Raleigh Kinney, and Stephen Quiller.

Ms. Lane’s beautiful watercolors are currently on display at Feminine Mystique Art Gallery in Tubac, Arizona, Artworx Salon in Tucson, Arizona and Koorey Creations in Saugatuck, Michigan. Her work is proudly displayed in homes and corporations from California to Cape Cod, and Wisconsin to Louisiana, in England and in Canada.
