The Ties That Bind

Greater Phoenix is known as a melting pot. A community that is made stronger from the diversity we each bring. While we continuously work to widen our net of inclusion, let’s take a moment to celebrate our individual family origins. This exhibit is meant to weave together a beautiful tapestry that highlights the diversity that is found here in Greater Phoenix and how we’ve embraced our differences to make us stronger as a whole.

All sales are direct through the artists. Please reach out to the artist if you’re interested in making a purchase.

Bouquet celebrates the beauty of diverse skin color through the dark and light rose bouquet. The pixelation is there to remind us that our greater beauty goes beyond the surface — where our intrinsic unity is shared in the color of our blood.

A woman is holding a knitted piece between two needles. It is a rainbow. If you trace the strands back, the yarn is red, white, brown, black and yellow — the colors of the human race. She represents peace for the world, which will start with race unity.

This painting displays the beauty of unity through diversity. The hands and multicolor background represent diverse cultures and people coming together  to form the word “love” in American Sign Language.

We all come from the same earth yet we are all beautifully unique. When we embrace our truth and harness our inner power, we can ignite the goddess within us and use it to better understand, connect with and empower each other.

Girls compete. Women empower. No matter our background, “Every woman’s success should be an inspiration to another. We’re strongest when we cheer each other on.” – Serena Williams

Note the shadows of the agave; nearly every part of the day it casts beautiful shadows. Agaves have so many uses, they are basically a zero-waste plant that can be used to make paper, fabric, textiles, and can be used as a sweetener or to produce alcohol.

Young palms are so beautiful, they need to be painted, these two palms from early morning in my yard, on the other side of my property getting sun from my swimming pool and casting soft and dark shadows from different angles.

Before horses and machines came along, camels were commonly used for mining in the Arizona desert. Today, camels like Jamal are being rescued by caring people.

Small local businesses are often passed down from one generation to the next. In this case, a business that brings the beauty of the natural world into the urban world, something Phoenix is known for.

As in all ballet performances, a lot of movement and grace. The multi-colors are represented how beautiful and multi-talented these performers are. This ties to Arizona’s ballet performers in the Valley and the upcoming holiday ‘The Nutcracker.’

This is a tribute to couples dancing together, it ties and binds relationships.

I have strong ties to my cultural Jewish heritage. Pomegranate Flame depicts Judaic symbols such as the pomegranate, an icon of abundance; the burning bush flame; and Hebrew poetry.

My ties to my Jewish heritage inspired these two souls melding into one. I included Dodi Li, a classic Hebrew poem, often used at weddings, that states: “I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine.”

Black women leave behind their cultural experience to emerge more into an acceptable persona in a predominately white culture.

Identifying the roles a black woman plays is arbitrary and capricious. Like all women, we wear many hats. Hats can represent how we view ourselves in the different roles women play or represent how we wish to present ourselves to others.

Coming Together, an acrylic on paper, exemplifies a diverse group of people stopping to exchange greetings. Some know each other, others are trying to find ties to a new community

Macho Man represents a certain type of man in our community — dapper, charming and sexy.

In this work I have created cohesion out of chaotic shapes and jagged bits, forming something familiar yet obscure.

This work expresses the desolateness and isolation of the desert. It is a world that inhabits my imagination.

This work is reminiscent of some sort of alien spacecraft that landed on a deserted world and it’s been abandoned there for centuries or even eons.

Everyone loves their furry best friend! Our friendship with our beloved pets lasts a lifetime.

Like its sister Bloody Basin 2, this piece shows the drastic differences of terrain in Arizona which creates harmony in nature for the world to see. Arizona’s people are much the same. Cultural and different ethnic origins create beautiful harmony.

The beauty of Arizona, like its people, is such a dichotomy of differences. Searing hot weather and freezing temps; high desert and low desert; an oasis and deadly — and all within our borders. Like its people, Arizona is rich in diversity.

Who doesn’t wear blue jeans? Everyone does! We are all different, but in so many ways we are exactly the same. Common human interaction reveals our harmony, and common differences create a beautiful and dramatic society.

Technology changes lives, mixing cultures changes lives. Old things pass away to make room for new ways of living. Phones are better now, and so is our society for meshing to forge new paths to better living and better understanding of others.

This is a depiction of a historic bar in my hometown that burned down in spring 2021. Many of us in Phoenix come from other places that still have a hold on us. You can’t go home again so you make a new home, but you never  forget.

This piece is about places that mean a lot to me. Tempe isn’t my hometown. It’s not my current town. It’s not my college town. But it’s a special place that invokes a nostalgia in me for the roaring 90s (the 1990s, that is). It was a fun time.

A kind, illuminated person is opening someone’s eyes to the fact that the color of the skin, the color of a flag, really doesn’t matter, as all of us have come from different directions. Our sufferings and joys are the same.

We all come from different places, beliefs, environments … generations had passed through this same home. our home. We are all one story, the story of all our ancestors. If we look carefully, we all come from this earth and go back to it.

My adolescence in France has been immersed in traditional theater, especially la Commedia del’arte. This is an homage to one of the main characters: Harlequin, the witty valet that was also often taken for a topic by many great painters.

This “make-believe collage” has its roots in all the maritime epic novels that I read as a youth, especially by authors such as Alexandre Dumas. It is a reflection on the fascination I had for travels and adventures that brought me here!

I studied the art history and legends of the Middle Ages and nourish my work with quotes from ancient paintings. Here it evokes paintings about Saint Michael Fighting the Dragon and interprets the myth in a way that makes it relevant to our times.

This painting is done in traditional Maithali folk art from India. The Sun, which is a source of energy, gives life and strength to diverse lives on this earth. Similarly, we need to respect and nurture diversity to strengthen each one.

There are three matches, each one is different and adds their small flame to the group creating a larger fire.

This painting represents the connection of opposites. Each half is different from the others. Yet each half fulfills that which is missing in the other half. The two become one yet keep their own nature. We are different, yet we are the same.

Kashire clowns portraying big game hunters and showing off their kill, like the show-offs that enjoy it. But Lexi the water buffalo isn’t really dead yet, she pretending to be and will stomp them after picture taking. LOL

Our southern neighbors provide us with toys while seeking to make a living thus joining us all as one in humanity through our children’s joy.

70s TV Sitcom that brought us all together by making us all aware, in a comedic way, the social issues of the day.

This image of Miles Davis is compelling, mesmerizing and unforgettable, just like Miles himself. His piercing eyes and long fingers touching his face are hard to look away from. Miles’ musical contributions through the years have united all people.

This is a mixed media piece incorporating palm leaves, pods, leather, beads and metal elements. Each element (person) on its own is singular, but together are The Ties That Bind us as people.

While it’s important to emphasize that race is a kind of illusion, it doesn’t mean that the effects of race haven’t actually been very real. Racism is not an illusion.

A girl of color, apparently out of place, standing in a desolate desert expanse looking off at who knows what. Perhaps she has ties to a community somewhere else. Perhaps she needs ties to where she is.

Go inside the Flower World of the Yaquis where indigenous and Christian spirituality intersect. The convergence of time and place and quality of being is at the core of Sea Ania.
