Photography was prohibited of the displayed artworks but they didn't say I couldn't photograph the invitation they mailed me. So I did.
The artists displayed a wide variety of works from watercolors to acrylics to charcoal sketches to sculpture. Here's a photo (from the invitation, again) of a work that was tagged Museum Purchase. I assume that means it is a permanent part of the Museum's collection.
Since SWMBO (She Who Must Be Obeyed) and I are both cat people, we heartily approved of this painting and the purchase.
There was one huge sculpture showing rattlesnakes writhing in a crevice of rock. It was titled "Fracking" and was priced at $285,000! We didn't bring it home.
Outside on the patio tables and chairs were set up and free kettle corn and drinks (lemonade and iced tea) were being served while a quartet of musicians going by the name of "Ken Clemmer and the Back Porch Bandits" were entertaining.
I had to ask one of them to pose for a picture during a break because of his t-shirt.
Here's a tiny sample of their sound.
And here's a picture of just one of the many other listeners looking for a free handout.
Nice day at the Phoenix Art Museum.
