Interactions through Art: Scottsdale Artists-in-Residence

 


  January 25, 2018 - March 30, 2018 // Civic Center Gallery

Three former residents of the Scottsdale Creates Residency program at the Scottsdale Livery are having an exhibit of their works. Showing their work will be David Emmit Adams, Ron Carlos, and Christopher Jagmin. The three exhibition artists were selected from the 2016 and 2017 residency program roster. Adams and Carlos are exhibiting artworks from their respective practices that were further developed and explored during their residencies. Jagmin has informed his social practice-based artworks with his materials and information gathered during his residency.

David Emmit Adams creates photographs with the wet plate collodion tintype process, first used in 1850. In his current work, he explores the social, political and environmental landscape by creating ultra-large-scale photographs on 55-gallon oil drum lids. Learn more here.

Ron Carlos practices the traditional “paddle and anvil” pottery-making technique with hand-processed clay and paints gathered from natural sources within the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community (SRPMIC) east of Scottsdale. Carlos is also a teacher and mentor to his community and passes along the traditional craft of pottery-making in the way of his ancestors. Learn more here.

Christopher Jagmin is a multi-media artist working in the field of social practice. He uses a variety of vintage printing technologies, such as label makers and typewriters, to document personal feelings, interactions and histories through words and narratives. During his residency, he held several workshops and events to collect materials from both strangers and friends. Learn more here.

The Gallery @ Appaloosa Library


Landscape Interrupted

by Travis Ivey


  December 1, 2017 – February 28, 2018 // Appaloosa Gallery

Through Phoenix artist Travis Ivey’s alter ego “HANK,” the artist creates paintings of the vast western landscape with an emphasis on the encroachment of urban space into the desert ecosystem. His oil paintings explore the “palm versus saguaro” juxtaposition.
