"Déjà Vu View" art by Jeffrey Falk - CANCELLED

Friday, April 24, 2020
Burton Barr Central Library
1st Floor Gallery
In the interest of keeping our community healthy and safe, Phoenix Public Library is cancelling all programs until further notice.  For updates, please check the Library's website, www.phoenixpubliclibrary.org

(Déjà vu is a French phrase that literally translates as "already seen". In the popular sense it describes what some see as a paranormal phenomenon where a person gets a feeling that they have lived through a present situation before or are familiar with a location they have never been to. The exhibit is not about this phenomenon. It is about seeing familiar "iconic" images in a new and different way.)

The art in this show uses existing/found imagery that is familiar to many viewers. These "already seen" iconic images are then altered or recombined in new ways that change the familiar meanings and open up new interpretations for the viewer. It is about art as a language, in and of, itself.

Join us for a First Friday reception 6:30-8:00 pm on March 6, 2020 featuring live music.

Arizona and Guatemala: A Photographic Exhibition presented by Through Each Other's Eyes -- CANCELLED

Saturday, May 30, 2020
Burton Barr Central Library
2nd Floor Gallery
In the interest of keeping our community healthy and safe, Phoenix Public Library is cancelling all programs until further notice.  For updates, please check the Library's website, www.phoenixpubliclibrary.org

Through Each Others Eyes™ promotes international understanding and appreciation of diverse cultures through photography. The organization coordinates photographic exchanges, educational programs and traveling exhibitions to help people around the world understand and embrace cultures different from their own.   The subject matter of the resulting exhibitions centers on people and their daily lives:  their work, their relationships with each other, their festivals and celebrations, nature and landscapes and simple scenes of their daily activities. The Arizona and Guatemala exhibit features Guatemala photographers Rony Mejia, Javier Alvarez and Arizona photographers Geoff Reed and Rebecca Wilks. 

ABOUT THE ARTISTS 

 

Rony Mejia (Guatemala) 

Rony was introduced to photography while pursuing an ecotourism major in college. His work in off-the-beaten track parts of his native Guatemala and his studies in ecology, geography and anthropology frequently place him in the right spot at the right time. His interests include travel, street and landscape photography with an emphasis on mobile. Rony’s pictures and editorial work have been published in books, magazines, brochures, campaigns, websites and advertisements from the Guatemalan National Parks Service (CONAP), Tourism Board (INGUAT), Defensores de la Naturaleza Foundation and private clients. 

  

Javier Alvarez Vassaux (Guatemala) 

A psychologist by profession, Javier’s interest in photography started when he was a teenager. He entered into digital photography around 2005, when he bought his first digital camera. In 2012, he joined the Club Fotográfico de Guatemala, where he found a very stimulating environment in which to learn and explore the endless opportunities that photography offers.  Javier’s work has been published in the Club Fotográfico de Guatemala Annual Book since 2013. He collaborates with several nonprofit organizations, especially in fields related to nature conservancy, cultural Guatemalan themes and folklore.  

 

 

Rebecca Wilks (Arizona)                                                                                                                                        

Rebecca has been an avid nature and travel photographer since her teens.  She strives to connect others with the natural and cultural. The camera permits her a unique viewpoint and a meditative way to interact with nature, people, color, and emotion. Her work can be seen in Arizona Highways publications as well as Outdoor Photographer Magazine, Budget Travel Magazine, Vermont Magazine, Cowboys and Indians Magazine, and Popular Woodworking Magazine. Rebecca also enjoys creating images to assist nonprofits in promotion, and has volunteered in this capacity with Rotary International, the Wheelchair Foundation, Cooperative for Education (Guatemala), and the Open Arms Home for Children (South Africa). 

 

 

Geoff Reed (Arizona) 

Geoff is a Phoenix, Arizona-based photographer providing corporate, editorial, travel & adventure photographs of people on location for business and consumer publications. His interest in travel originated in his early years growing up in India, France and Central Africa, and as a commercial photographer he enjoys working with clients throughout the United States. He has published credits in advertising, corporate and editorial photography Geoff teaches commercial and digital photography classes as well as summer international study abroad in Prague, Berlin and Vienna through the Maricopa Community Colleges. 

 

All print sales benefit Through Each Others Eyes.

“Napkin Sketches - Grab the Napkin, Draw It Now!” art by Kyoko Iwasaka

Friday, June 19, 2020
Burton Barr Central Library
1st Floor Gallery
Kyoko Iwasaka is an artist and also an architect who specializes in green building design. Her unique background, extensive travel experience, and strong curiosity fuel her creativity. Kyoko’s artwork is widely diversified from pencil drawing to watercolor to mixed media in both realism and abstract.

In this exhibit at the Burton Barr Central Gallery, she showcases pen sketches on 5”x5” paper napkins, which are unexpected, simple, but powerful tools that allow us to express our impression and emotion freely at the right moment without fear of being judged.

Join us for a First Friday reception from 6:30-8 p.m. on Friday, May 1.  Meet the artist, discuss the work, and enjoy live music. The reception is supported by the Friends of the Phoenix Public Library.
