Magnetic north: oils on stainless steel by mai wyn schantz

July 27, 2018 - october 21, 2018

Mai has been painting on metal, first aluminum and now stainless steel, for almost twenty years. By exposing areas of the raw metal substrate, a unique juxtaposition results between the industrial material and her nature-based subject matter. Her work will be an exploration of our evolving and often tenuous union with nature as well as our inherent desire to connect with it.

The Founding of Foothills

august 23, 2018 - October 21, 2018

If we want everything to remain as it is, it will be necessary for everything to change.

Guiseppe Tomasi Di Lampedusa, The Leopard, 1960

Foothills Art Center had its grand opening on August 3, 1968 featuring Bill and Dorothy Harmen’s “Western Americana Collection”. Much has changed over the years, thanks to dedicated volunteers and forward thinking staff. Volunteer director, Den Galbraith and executive directors Marian Metsopoulos and Dr. Carol Dickinson are notable, among many others.

In honor of our 50th birthday, we are pleased to exhibit work by Tom Berger, Ronald Waelchli,  Hal Shelton and Jackie McFarland along with historical photographs and ephemera.

Thank you to our ever supportive members, artists, volunteers, community partners, board members and staff of past, present and future. Cheers to 50 wonderful years and 50 more to come!
