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.

Amuse yeux

june 19 2018 - august 12 2018

A play on the term used in restaurants, amuse bouche, meaning a bite –sized appetizer. Amuse Yeux is a mixed media small works show inspired by this concept. Artists from our community, far and wide submitted over 400 works in response to our call for entry. The 63 pieces in total represent a wide variety of disciplines. We hoped to display something to suit the taste of any visitor.

The mission of this show is to provide an opportunity for young adults in our community to begin art collections. Often times the exceptional artwork for sale in the galleries of FAC can be cost prohibitive to the masses. By hosting a show of small works, many created for this instance, we can lower the price of the works without sacrificing quality.

Charles E. Burchfield: A Resounding Roar

May 4, 2018 - July 28, 2018 

Foothills Art Center presents Charles E. Burchfield: A Resounding Roar, which features watercolor paintings displaying the artist’s love and appreciation of various sounds of daily life and the works he made in response.

Early Burchfield works depict the sound of crickets as they chirp in the bushes around his childhood home. The resounding roar of a passing train or the delicate call of a bobolink could the inspiration for a series of works lasting decades. Later Burchfield works are inspired by his favorite composers Ludwig van Beethoven and Jean Sibelius.

Join the museum for a special evening performance when Virtuosity dancers express Charles E. Burchfield’s work through dance on June 7 at 6 p.m.
