This Last year 2016
with a group of local artist, we launched
Art 35º North ("Art35N") is a new inclusive organization supporting art in the region of 35º North latitude seeking Collaboration, Conversation, Community and Creativity among artists, art supporters, art collectors and the communities of this region. ART35N encourages involvement by artists in all types of media.
Art35N has formed with the goal of sharing Fine Art across the Colorado Plateau. By bringing together artists from not only Flagstaff, but also Winslow, Williams, and other nearby towns.
Art35N is a juried organization, potential exhibiting members must apply for membership, and must prove a high level of artistic expression and technical skill in order to gain entrance into this professional group.
Supporting memberships are also offered. These members are eligible for workshops, classes and art education.
According to John Tannous, Executive Director of the Flagstaff Arts Council, “Artists appreciate the opportunity to engage with audiences, and we know audiences will, too.”
Members include painters, ceramic artists, printmakers and sculptors, so the Flagstaff area will have the chance to experience art-making in a wide range of medium.
This year Art35N is still growing and has added a monthly pop up gallery at Human Nature Dance Studio Gallery. Once a month with Flagstaff's First Friday Art Walk.

The 6th Extinction work in progress
We're currently experiencing the worst die-off since the loss of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. This time not by a comet but by our human impact on the environment since the industrial revolution. All of nature is a single organism, everything is connected, "quantum physicists have found that the boundaries that isolate one thing from another exist only at the most obvious and superficial level; at deeper levels all things-atoms molecules, plants animals, people participate in a sensitive, dynamic web of information" Rupert Sheldrake Ph.D..
Literally dozens of species are going extinct every day, at this moment the present rate of extinction is up to 140,000 species per year and is growing every hour.
This work is an ongoing artistic inquiry into the web of inter-species communication , through my art I offer a connection to 18 of the 1,000s of disappearing sentient beings .
As we lose each species we lose a part of our selves in the interconnected web of consciousness.
