ARCHITECTURE AS ART
Thru 8/10

Poster Image: Stairway to the Stars , by Steve Simmonds, Photography

On the difference between the ideals of  architecture  and mere construction , the 20 th century architect Le Corbusier wrote: You employ stone, wood, and concrete, and with these materials you build houses and palaces: that is construction. Ingenuity is at work. But suddenly you touch my heart, you do me good. I am happy and I say: This is beautiful. That is Architecture.

FIRST GALLERY EXHIBIT OF THE 2019-2020 SEASON!
WATER – August 25-September 28
CALL FOR ART DEADLINE: SATURDAY, AUGUST 10, 2019

Water can determine the overall mood of the image. Water can be shown as a symbol or stylized in some way. Many artists have represented the attributes of water literally, metaphorically, symbolically, or allegorically in mythology, religion and folklore. There is water in motion - a flowing stream or river, a turbulent ocean, or a waterfall, or faucet/hose. Or tranquil waters - lakes, slow-moving rivers, or a calm sea or a puddle after a storm. Scenes incorporating water have been plentiful - females bathing; animals drinking from water sources; fountains of all sizes/locations; baptisms and the sacredness of water; bridges/aqueducts above or transporting people or cargo on water. The many facets of water include too much, too little, a teardrop, a stream, a cloudburst, on the beach and traces it leaves behind. All mediums are welcome. Go to pca-az.net for entry information and forms.
