I’ll assuredly be ranting, raging and making suggestions and pleas for organized resistance in the coming days and months but today….today we have more art.

The Beleza Gallery, also in Bisbee, shows a lot of interesting artists. Amongst them are Bob Ichter and William Spencer whose website is marvelously hypnotic.

Back in the Phoenix area Jenny made a brief stop at the Roosevelt Row Gallery in the up and coming, very cool, arts district before heading on to Scottsdale – Gallery Central.
The places whose collections really slayed me were:
Gebert Contemporary – They carry both Fritz Scholder and Elizabeth Cheche. LOVE them!
King Galleries shows a LOT of Pueblo pottery both traditional and totally fucking wild. Virgil Ortiz, Tammy Garcia, Diego Romero and more. Jesus this place was worth the whole damn trip!
The Signature Gallery also had a tremendous collection including Randy O’Brien’s brill pottery, Jammey Huggins' gorgeous sculptural jars, a J.R. Eason piece which I’m crazy for, Star York’s crows and alabaster sculptor Susan Zalkind. There was loads more cool stuff there too.
If you find yourself in the Phoenix area, these three galleries are total MUSTS.
