"Observation & Imagination"
- March 14, 2019
-- Royse Contemporary is proud to present Observation & Imagination
, their first large group exhibition examining the ideas of observation verses imagination, reflecting upon the artists perspective and creative process. This exhibition showcases the work of thirteen noteworthy artists including: Cherie Buck-Hutchison, Angel Cabrales, Charmagne Coe, Bill Dambrova, Lee Davis, Cam DeCaussin, Gennaro Garcia, Rafael Navarro, Dan Pederson, Daniel Shepherd, Marilyn Szabo, Casey Wakefield, and Scott "ColorOrgy" Wolf.
Typically, one would define "Observation"
in art as drawing or painting from life, while "Imagination"
emphasizes the artist's ability to produce images and ideas without any immediate input of the senses. Owner/Curator, Nicole Royse has selected artists who both typify and transcend these categories, creating powerful work that offers a distinctive voice, mastery of medium, and unique perspective. This exhibition offers an eclectic selection of work with artists working in an array of mediums including collage, drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, and mixed media. Observation & Imagination
aims to create a dialog and connection with these artists, highlighting their use of imagery, engaging styles, and strong voice.Observation & Imagination
will open to the public Thursday, April 4, 2019 from 6:00-10:00pm with a special artist reception coinciding with the weekly Scottsdale ArtWalk. The evening will feature an opportunity to meet the artist's and curator, along with light hors d'oeuvres and refreshments. Observation & Imagination
