Wilde Meyer has always been animal friendly, and represented lots of great artists who incorporated animals into their work. So we have decided to make our Wilde Meyer Annex, on Main street, Scottsdale, into a gallery that specializes in animal related original fine art. We will frequently hold shows with part of the proceeds going to animal charities. Animal subjects will include domestic animals and wildlife. As with our other galleries, the styles presented will be eclectic, and the media varied. Many of the artists welcome custom portraits of pets or other favorite animals. Wilde Meyer Gallery, on Marshall Way, Scottsdale, and our Tucson Gallery will continue showing their same great diverse subjects like abstracts, landscapes, and figurative works.
Gallery Hours: Monday-Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Open for ArtWalk every Thursday, 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Event: “Wilde Things”
Opening Reception: April 6th, 7:00-9:00 PM
Closing: April 29th, 2017
This month’s group show focuses on non-domestic animals. The show will include exotic as well as native wild animals. Patricia Hunter’s realistic style watercolors of various African species become very contemporary through her unorthodox compositions. The great physical strength of Greg Dye’s wild bison is portrayed in his thick pallet knife paintings that are contemporized with vivid wild hues. Timothy Chapman invents his own wild species. Ron Russon’s portrayal of wildlife has a subtle hint of native spiritualty combined with bold contemporary colors and lines. These artists as well as work by several artists will be displayed.
