2017 Governor’s Arts Awards
I am extremely honored and thrilled to announce that my work Grand Variations I was selected (along with 8 other artists) to be given as an award to one of the recipients of the 2017 Governor’s Arts Awards by Arizona Citizens for the Arts. The big event is May 4 at the Phoenician Ballroom. I have no idea who will be given my print as their award. That information is top secret–no one knows until the awards are handed out at the event. I do know it will go to a very good home–every single person or organization up for the 2017 Governor’s Arts Awards is truly amazing in their commitment to and love of art.
Grand Variations I (see above) was printed by Brent Bond of Santo Press. It was created by layering a laser-etched linoleum block print over an digital inkjet print of one of my manipulated photographs. Grand Variations I was printed in an edition of 10; image size 16″ x 16″ on 23″ x 22″ paper; (there are also Grand Variations II, III and IV). Similar prints (Universal Variations) were created using the same technique in a variable edition of 14. They are smaller in size of 10″ x 10″ on 14.5″ x 13″ paper and feature an array of colors with different background layers.
