Due to the ever-changing conditions in our state and world, this has necessitated us to postpone our incredible Dyana Hesson exhibit. Obviously, this disappoints us all as Dyana has put such work into this show! We will, however, still hang the show and below are a number of ways to see it: 
1 Window shop, we will leave the lights on, feel free to peer in.
2 Contact us for a private tour should you want a closer look.
3 Look online and in your inbox for more photographs & video.

In the meantime, we are here to assist you. We will announce a new date soon, obviously, details for this are pending instruction we receive about the safety conditions to gathering again.

In late spring, some friends and I went to a cabin in the woods in Prescott. We cooked, antique shopped, and of course, hiked. There are some wonderful trails in Prescott, along creeks, among the pinons and under the pine trees. It was on one of those hikes that we spied this beautiful mound of Echinocereus triglochidiatus glowing on a bank, nestled among the pine needles and boulders. It demanded a closer look.

While I was on this trip, I got the call that my dad was not doing so well. There was nothing I could do, and I was so far away. My friends listened to me, cried with me, prayed with me. And that’s what good friends do. They are like shining lights at the end of a dark tunnel. The beauty these cactus blooms will always remind me of their love and care.

Claudia Hartley’s

paintings are incredibly “happy.” They are also undoubtedly colorful. Her landscapes are an unrestrained celebration of life and nature. Originally from the South, Claudia Hartley now lives in Arizona and paints the desert. Her work has the structure of traditional, idealized landscapes, but with an entirely contemporary aesthetic (staccato brushworks and non naturalistic, expressive colors).

Hartley considers herself a fauvist, synthesizing the techniques of pointillism and post-impressionism. She mostly applies her masterful skills to depict landscapes of the Southwest. Her paintings are an hyphen between impressionism and abstraction in which color is completely set free. In tune with nature, Claudia Hartley uses intense color as a vehicle for representing mood, light, and space. She has mastered the emotional potency of color, and her paintings convey both passion and happiness.

Claudia Hartley is featured in the February issue of the American Art Collector and Phoenix Home & Garden magazine.
