December 2022

Hello everyone, Time to reflect on 2022. Remember to not only think of the hard times we have had, but all the wonderful days we spent with family and friends. You never know what is around the corner. Enjoy each day and have hope for tomorrow.

Vickey Jonhson

I worked as a registered nurse for over 40 years and am now retired, enjoying my more creative side! I have lived in Tucson for over 35 years and now spend my retirement in both Arizona and Minnesota. I have one wonderful son, Noah. No grandchildren yet.

Working with art soothes my soul and brings me a lot of pleasure. I hope my work brings joy to others. Being creative and exploring all kinds of art forms is what most interests me. The mediums I enjoy working with are: paint, woodburning, solder sculpting, scratch art, and glass fusion. My art focuses primarily on my love for animals. I think our human family has a lot to learn from these beautiful creatures.

I am self taught. I learn and experiment as I go. I refer to books, magazines and YouTube for guidance. I have also attended several local art classes. I’m most thankful for the ability I have and want to continue to share this with others. Should you have a specific
subject of interest please enquire within.

Gretchen Will be visiting the Gallery during Workshop Saturdays. January 21

 

Gretchen LimaWood

I have combined natural fibers in the hair as well as the handwoven or hand dyed clothing. I individually sculpt and paint each face using Sculpey inlaid with beads, pearls or pieces of turquoise.
Each design is conceived and executed by me. I first make a sketch from an idea, then a rough prototype. A final pattern for a piece is then cut from muslin. Each individual doll is different depending on the fabrics used to decorate it.
People at art fairs ask me how I got started in dollmaking. I believe it’s a 50–year old story, interwoven with a need and a passion to create, using detail, color and a sense of spirit.
My work is not only an expression of what I see, but of what I feel. I create the messages and give a voice to a girl inside who has patiently waited to be heard.

Workshops by local artists are available this season!

Choose one or more exciting classes and learn new techniques, be guided by professionals and have lots of fun. All materials are included. You will go home with your own piece of art.

Each class is different and unique.

SUE HELLE’s workshop teaches the basics of NEEDLE FELTING. Essentially, needle felting is the art and craft of transforming wool into an object using a needle. Using wool in its rawer forms and special felting needles, you prick the wool repeatedly to form the desired shapes and designs.

Featured Artist

Diane Will be visiting the Gallery during Festival February 8 - 12.

 

Diane West

Diane was born and raised in Oakland, California. The artist grew up a family where some form of art/crafts work was always in progress. With family encouragement, Diane majored in fine art while attending community college.

After pursuing numerous art forms over the years, the artist discovered gourd art in 1997. After retiring and moving to Arizona in 1998, she was able to devote much more time to various art forms such as oil painting, wood carving, and jewelry making, but soon renewed her interest in gourd art.

“Gourds are always offering a new challenge, with their varying shapes and color patterns. It is impossible to become bored with such an interesting and versatile art form. So many different techniques can be used, that there is always a new technique or process to try out in working with ‘nature’s gift’—the gourd.” The artist also enjoys teaching the fundamentals of gourd art to those who have never tried this unique art form.

“I try to embody the spirit of the gourd with my artistic treatment. The natural beauty Mother Nature gives the gourd inspires my designs.”

Diane is active in a number of gourd organizations and is a Certified American Gourd Society Judge.
The artist has won numerous awards at the AZ State Fair, AZ Gourd Festival, and Pima County Fair.


Tubac Festival of the Arts February 8 - 12

It’s the big event. There will be booths in the streets and lots of food and entertainment. Don’t forget the Feminine Mystique Art Gallery and the other wonderful shops in La Entrada. La Entrada is the Heart of Tubac, come see what you are missing. We will have visiting artists and lots of smiling faces.

Madonna will be visiting the Gallery during Studio Tour March 10 - 12 and Art Walk March 24 - 26

 

Madonna Lane

was born and raised in the Midwest and moved to the Rocky Mountain region in the early 1960’s. Although not officially “an artist,” she was an observer of nature and a lover of the beautiful country that God created. The extensive travel throughout the country has enhanced her deep love of nature and her desire to express these feelings in fresh, transparent watercolors.

Once settled in Littleton, Colorado, Ms. Lane accepted a part-time position at Studio West Gallery where she was exposed to some of the finest local art work being offered for sale, and additionally, learned the fine art of professionally matting and framing her own work. During this time, she studied with local artists, rita derjue, Charles Rogers, Rick Brogan and others. Later she was fortunate to participate in several watercolor workshops given in Colorado, Vermont and Sedona, Arizona by nationally and internationally known author and watercolor professional Zoltan Szabo. She has also taken classes from distinguished professionals Steve Quiller, Raleigh Kinney and Bob Williamson.

Her work is proudly displayed in homes and corporations from California to Cape Cod and Wisconsin to Louisiana, in England and in Canada.

Art Walk March 24 - 26

Art Walk was such a success for the village in November, we are having it again in March. The Village will celebrate with all businesses in town, not just art galleries. All participating shops will have a walking map of the village. Come down and have a great walk through town. Many businesses will be giving away goodies, wine and more. Don’t forget the Feminine Mystique. We will share cookies with you.

Returning Artist

Debbie Cope

For over thirty years, Debbie Cope has been exploring and mastering the concepts of color, design, and – above all – the patterns that flow through her collages. Her childhood was enriched by her mother who practiced the ancient art of trans-forming love, craftsmanship and worn-out clothing “one stitch at a time” and the result is Debbie’s celebration of quilting.

There is nothing less than magic in Debbie’s wonderful and whimsical work. As the viewer beholds the images, they “morph” from quilt to reality or intrigue us with collaged characters found in the depths of our imaginations. Her scenes of women shopping, lunching, dancing, hanging laundry, or just laughing are depicted in her screaming-color collages. They are inspired by just plain fun and they bring smiles and a feeling of lightheartedness to the viewer.

Brenda Péo

Self taught oil artist.. born in Chicago.. but grew up in the desert SW.  I have had my own line of SW style jewelry for the past 25 years.. using Copper.. Red Brass and Sterling Silver.. successfully selling at art fairs throughout the SW states.. however.. it turned into a job and was not satisfying my creative spirit..

I started painting in 2008.. and loving every minute.. I especially like painting animals.. trying to capture their curious personalities.. and quirky traits.. some expressions are priceless..  with loads of personality.. luckily, there is never a shortage of volunteers.. At first I tried to make every thing realistic.. but it just wasn't working.. so.. I like to call my style.. a bit of realism/impressionism.. with a big dash of humor.. I  live along the San Pedro River in the Saint David, AZ area.. surrounded by wildlife..
