Opening Reception for Contemplation in the Wasteland

The Millet House is hosting an Opening Reception on Friday, September 14, 6-10 pm for featured artist Craig Thornton. Craig has chosen the theme of “Contemplation in the Wasteland” which, for him, includes figures of strong character in beautiful but harsh environments. He states that science fiction and a personal mythology have influenced this work.

Craig will be supported by juried artists and by the Millet House Art Collective:

Margarete Beeson-Giancomazzo

Gilat Ben-Dor

Adrian Black

Jaime Glasser

Kevin Gordon

Sai’la Guo’i

Leslie Kay

Tara Kosciukiewicz

Amanda Shepherd

Heather Smith-Gearns

Mary Stokrocki

Mary Thomas

Jason Youngdale

The supporting artists have contributed their interpretations of the theme, ranging from a quilt in honor of migrant children who have died crossing the desert, to a shawled figure surrounded by symbols of Native American culture, to a collage representing the “junk food wasteland”..

The Millet House is located at 440 W 1s Street, Mesa AZ 85201. Refreshments will be served, and you will be able to meet many of the artists.

Other Open Hours for the show are yet to be arranged but will include Mesa Second Friday evening on October 13 and a Closing Reception on October 26. For further Open Hours as they are announced see our website, Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram (details below).
