Arizona Aqueous XXXIV
October 11 @ 5:00 pm - November 17 @ 4:30 pm
The Tubac Center of the Arts (TCA) annually hosts the Arizona Aqueous Exhibition, a nationally juried exhibition featuring work that utilizes water-based medium on paper. This year, the exhibition has moved to the fall in collaboration with the Smithsonian Water/Ways exhibit at the Tubac Presidio Park. Arizona Aqueous XXXIV has moved to fall in part because of our collaboration with the Tubac Presidio and the Lowe House in support of water projects and the Smithsonian Water|Ways traveling exhibition.
Juror: Barbara Kemp Cowlin is a painter, focusing on four series; Askew, a quirky interpretation of architectural details from a skewed perspective, Painting Water, paintings inspired by the interactions of natural objects and water, Bloom, of flowers and other growing things, and Nooks & Crannies, overlooked spaces in public places focusing on angles, luminous color, and texture.
They have in common her drive to capture light and shadow, reflections, movement, and all things ephemeral on architectural details, water, plants, and man-made surfaces. Her medium is acrylic.
She earned a BFA in Printmaking and a Masters degree in Community College Education with a major in Printmaking from Northern Arizona University and has done post-graduate work at Arizona State University in letterpress printing & bookmaking. Barbara is a certified Golden Artist Educator.
