Was excited have my “Four Yellow Eyes” in the June 2017 issue of Phoenix Magazine. Was also in last year’s June issue. 🙂 The photo was a finalist in their 7th Annual Photo Contest. The image will be included in our upcoming book “Burrowing Owls – They Live Among Us”. Feel very fortunate to have three different photos published in three different magazines in three different months. 🙂
We are donating our “White Rooster Portrait” mounted on a 12 x 12 x 2 Museum Box™ to the Sedona Art Center for their 12 x 12 Fundraiser. The event is to help support their arts education programs and community arts outreach projects. All artwork for the exhibit will be 12 x 12, and available for $250. The reception is Friday, May 12 and is located in the historic Art Barn. Doors open at 5:30pm. Over 100 Artists will be contributing to the annual event.
White Rooster Portrait
The Rooster image was captured from the Wildlife World Zoo, Aquarium & Safari Park located in Litchfield Park Arizona. The park has Arizona’s largest collection of exotic and endangered animals, with more than 600 separate species. The Elote Cafe in Sedona also currently has the “White Rooster Portrait” on display, where it is called “El Gallo Sabio” (The Wise Rooster). It was also part of our Derivatives Exhibit at the Herberger Gallery @ Arizona Center.
The Wise Rooster is printed using archival ink (Dark Storage Permanence Ratings well in excess of 200 years and over 400 years for black & white) and printed on Epson Velvet Fine Art paper (100% cotton rag for archivability). Each print is mounted to a ultra-smooth kaolin clay ground surface, which is archival and acid-free. The 2 inch side panels are made from sustainable forest products and stained to complement the image. Each box is signed and hand numbered on the back. The Museum Box™ can hang on a wall or sit on a shelf. No glass or glazing is put between you and the art (only a protective UV coating), allowing you to see the beauty of the rag paper.
All artwork on www.AOTucker.com is available on a Museum Box™, currently as small as 6 x 6 or as large as 30 x 60.
A Signature Celebration of Phoenix’s Arts and Culture, this year is the 29th Annual Art Detour, the event that helped launch the First Friday Art Walk. Trolley’s will be running Friday night, and 11am – 5pm on Saturday and Sunday. Click here for a map.
