The Herberger Theater Center is pleased to announce a special summer exhibition, The Poetry of Arizona’s Landscape, at the University Club of Phoenix, 39 East Monte Vista Road in Phoenix.
The opening reception will start things off on First Friday, June 3, 2011, 5:30-7pm. Works will be on display throughout the historic 1917 residence-turned-club through August 11, 2011.
The Poetry of Arizona’s Landscape represents many interpretations of Arizona’s unique terrain. Members of the local art community juried the show, including Herberger Theater’s 2011 guest curator Jim Covarrubias. The jury viewed approximately 300 images and chose the 38 pieces for the exhibit. More than 39 artists from across the state submitted artwork, from which 17 artists were selected, including Jill Friedberg, Kimberly Harris, Maggie Keane, Leslie Parsons, Lisa Peterson Love, Luis Salazar and Dave Wilson.
All are welcome to the June 3rd artists’ reception, which is open to the public. Music by String Serenade. Gallery hours at the University Club of Phoenix are 9 to 11am and 1 to 5pm.
The Herberger Theater Center is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to support and foster the growth of the performing arts in Phoenix as the premier performance venue, incubator and advocate. Sales from the exhibit benefit the Herberger Theater's youth arts education programs.
