West Valley Arts Council Art Exhibit

One of my photos was selected by the West Valley Arts Council to be displayed at the Arts HQ Blank Canvas Inaugural Exhibit from July 24th through September 12th. The Art HQ is located at 16126 North Civic Center Plaza, Surprise, AZ 85374. There will be an Opening Reception on July 24th, 6 – 8 pm. The reception is open to the public. Beer, wine, and refreshments will be severed, so be there or be square.

The Official Headquarters

The Arts HQ is destined to become the West Valley’s gathering place for artistic inspiration, and will serve as the official headquarters for arts and cultural information for our region’s residents and visitors. The Arts HQ consists of 2,500 square feet of gallery space – plus an outdoor courtyard – connected by a covered breezeway. These flexible spaces allow for a multitude of arts and cultural events, and can be adapted to meet various visual and performance requirements.

I mounted the image on black archival foam board using 3M Super 77 adhesive.

The artwork will be listed at $95, using a process I call Foam Board Floating Mount (Making Art Affordable). It’s signed, and ready to be put on display.
