Western Artwalk Invitational at Gebert Contemporary coming Feb. 2

Artwalk is open and free to public

Posted

Opening Feb. 2 at Gebert Contemporary Art Gallery in Scottsdale, prints by Fritz Scholder (1937-2005), fine art photography by Werner Segarra, graphite drawings by Clayton Porter, and paintings and augmented-reality works by James Angel will be featured in the Western ArtWalk Invitational.

The opening reception for the Western Art Walk Invitational is 7–9 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 2. The event is free and open to the public. Work will remain on view through March 1.

Fritz Scholder’s 1978 lithographs of Will Rogers, titled “Happy Skies to You,” are shown in five color combinations. Each is an original artist’s print directly from the Scholder estate, and is framed and sold separately.

Werner Segarra’s recent body of photographic work documents the lifestyle of ranchers in northern Mexico. Some selections from his book Vaqueros de La Cruz del Diablo (Trilce Ediciones) are captured in stark black and white, and others in full, lush color.

Clayton Porter uses the finest of strokes in graphite on broad, whitewashed canvases to illustrate broncos and riders in action. The images are small and meticulously rendered, at a scale that demands close inspection (echoing pair-bonding between a horse and trainer).

James Angel applies the aesthetic and perceptual dimensions of augmented reality to his own fond memories of Parada del Sol, the Hashknife Pony Express and Arizona Indian Festival. Two of

Angel’s paintings appear overlaid with virtual, moving imagery when viewed using the Hoverlay app.
