Walk in My Shoes
Jan 19-May 12
The arts help us express what cannot be said. Through an artist’s eyes, we can experience, discover and see how it feels to “walk in another person’s shoes” for a moment. While it is impossible for one exhibition to convey the entirety of the human condition, this show celebrates diversity, expression and the value of multiple viewpoints. Exhibiting Artists: Marco Albarran, Sama Alshaibi, Angela Ellsworth, Annie Lopez, Stephen Marc, Emily Matyas, Ann Morton, Julio Cesar Morales, Gregory Sale and Will Wilson. Support provided by Salt River Pima Maricopa Indian Communities.

The gallery at TCA is pleased to announce its next exhibition “draw” which features a variety of “mark-making” drawing styles and media from traditional pencil, ink, paint and charcoal to computer drawings and robotic designs. Artists were selected by a distinguished panel of community jury panelists including artists Alexandra Bowers, Joe Ray and Sarah Spencer as well as architect John Kane. In a highly competitive process 11 Arizona artists were selected, three of which will work in studio spaces set up inside the gallery for 12 weeks this summer.
