New GPEC art exhibition showcases Arizona’s landmarks and architecture

Every quarter we partner with artists to curate unique, stunning pieces of art to display and have available for purchase at our office. This quarter we’re excited to highlight Greater Phoenix’s nature scenes and diverse architecture in an exhibition themed “Arizona Landmarks & Architecture.” From mid-century modern architecture, someone’s favorite childhood memory, to unexpected angles, we want to acknowledge every aspect of the region.

So let’s get to know the artists and find out what they hope viewers will take away from seeing their art and one word they would use to describe the impact art has on our community.

 

Jon Arvizu, Phoenix, AZ

One word that Arvizu would use to describe the impact art has on our community is “aspirational.”

Esther BeLer Wodrich, Litchfield Park, AZ

“Peace,” is one word BeLer Wodrich would use to describe the impact art has on community. “We will always face challenges in our lives, whether it be health, our personal lives, tragedy. However, when we surround ourselves with things that bring us joy we can separate ourselves from life’s challenges and find peace in our environment.”

Vicki Schafer, Winslow, AZ

“I hope viewers see the many abundant layers of Arizona, the natural beauty and the elegance of its natural resources,” Schafer said. “I hope it inspires that feeling of abundance and natural beauty that Arizona has to offer, and that the viewer gets lost in the many layers, the way it’s easy to get lost in Arizona’s beautiful landscapes.”

Bruce Stam, Phoenix, AZ

Stam hopes that viewers will see beauty in the history of Arizona. “For several years I drove past this old warehouse and train tracks in Mesa and always told myself that I should paint it. Finally, I did and I loved the painting,” Stam said. “Arizona has a rich industrial heritage and this scene symbolized the fruit packing industry. The train tracks just bring the viewer into the piece, there is a brief stop at the warehouse and then one goes off into the horizon.”
