|Tucson Saguaro Photography Invitational
In keeping with the theme of the Arizona Theatre Company production, The Second City Does Arizona, or Close But No Saguaro, the Temple Gallery is pleased to present the Tucson Saguaro Photography Invitational, opening April 3 and running through April 24, 2010.
Etherton Gallery, which manages the Temple Gallery, invited artists to take a fresh look at the much beloved Saguaro using a photographic process; submissions were juried by Terry Etherton and the staff of Etherton Gallery. The resulting show features work by artists primarily from southern Arizona, although it includes artists from as far west as Silicon Valley and Portland, Oregon. With inventive images ranging from James Eschinger’s riff on an Andy Warhol screen print, Carnegiea gigantea 1 2 3 (2009) to Dorothy Nevitt’s Polaroid print diptych Power Plant (2005-2010), the Tucson Saguaro Photography Invitational demonstrates that the inspirational power of the Saguaro remains strong.
The Tucson Saguaro Photography Invitational opens April 3 and runs through April 24, 2010, with an artist reception on Friday April 9, 5:30-7:30pm. The Temple Gallery is located in SoCo, the newly designated South of Congress district, at the Temple of Music and Art, 330 S. Scott Ave. in downtown Tucson. Gallery hours are Mon-Fri, 10am-5pm and prior to Arizona Theatre Company performances.
