Join us for our 1st annual wrap up event at the Brass Armadillo Antique Mall in Goodyear for an evening of journal fun and shopping. We welcome all our members and anyone interested in being a part of our global organization to come and enjoy the fun while we express our creative selves on the pages of your art journal. Bring your own journal or sketch pad, while we provide all the journal fixins and goodies to incorporate into your creations. Feel free to bring any embellishments, pens, paint, paper, etc. you want to share and incorporate into your own journal. This is a great way for everyone to collaborate and share their art techniques and tips. Plus its just fun creating with other artists. After we get our creative juices flowing, you have the freedom to explore over 100 antique and artistic shops in the facility, plus Robyn & Yvette will give a 15% discount on $20+ purchase at their little Lowcountry shop which includes home décor, Christmas creations, handmade journals, and much, much, more. Refreshments and goodies will be served.
Artists Yvette St. Amant and Robyn McClendon collaborate their painting techniques in this two person exhibit projecting the Mystical Southwest.
Ancient calendars, mythology and astrology were integrated into a single system of belief. The skies were used to predict solar and lunar movements, the cycles of the planets, and the movements of the constellations. The animals that moved and survived upon the earth were intrinsically connected to this heavenly movement. These occurrences were far more than mere mechanical apparitions and were believed to be the activities of gods replaying mythical events from the time of Creation.
The Mystical South West embodies through visual dialogues the beauty of this cosmology we refer to as Earth, the living body that we tread upon and derive the very essence of our nature. Both Artists used the unspoken movement of their brushes along the canvas surface, many times working together simultaneous, to express the forgotten language of animals and plants who instinctively dance to the wonderment of the cosmology and are there as simple reminders of our own true mythology.
