Arizona artist spotlight: Ximena Echeverria

Meet Mesa-based artist Ximena Echeverria featured in our art exhibit ‘Greater Phoenix has it all!’

What do you love about being an artist in the Greater Phoenix area? 

The ability to contribute and aid in the conservation/preservation of wildlife through my photographs is very important. My work captures tender moments of wildlife that we can all relate to such as love, friendship, family and strength. It is my hope that people connect to wildlife in a manner that touches their soul and eventually want to take action to protect them.

What role do you think the arts & culture plays in our community as a whole? 

History has told us that when our world goes through difficult times, people look at creators of all types, artists, photographers, poets, musicians, etc., to find reprieve, to make connections with the outer world and their inner self.

What is your favorite art venue/event in the Greater Phoenix area? 

First Fridays has and continues to be one of my favorite venues. It is such a great event for people to interact with the art world. The public has accessibility to a variety of artists and venues.
