Flux in flux

Saturday, June 4th, 2011

Flux Gallery is living up to its name this summer. Three more members are moving on—two to larger markets, one to another country. Carol Ann and Shirley Wagner will be refocusing their efforts on larger art markets outside of Tucson. Katherine Minott will be heading south to Mexico for a few months.

Although we will miss our sister artists, Flux’s future looks fine. We have three new artists to fill our space and your homes. Sheryl Holland, who was a guest artist at Flux in February, joined us as of June 1. Her colorful acrylic abstracts are already gracing the gallery.

On July 1, CJ Shane and Mary Vaneecke will officially join us. Shane, as she likes to be known, paints abstract landscapes and makes prints and artists’ books. Mary is a fiber artist who uses surface design techniques such as paint and pencil on fabric, discharge dyeing, decorative stitching, and machine quilting to create fabric wall pieces.

Tucson Symphony Orchestra/Flux Gallery Event a Huge Success

Monday, April 19th, 2010

"Starry Starry Night" by Carol Ann

Many who attended the April 2nd Tucson Symphony Orchestra/Flux Gallery benefit said it was one of the best Tucson gallery events they had seen. The performance by Sasha Lipay, principal flutist with the Tucson Symphony Orchestra, was met with rave reviews. TSO Musical Director George Hanson said some profound and inspiring words about Tucson’s art scene. A lot of beautiful art was sold, including seven pieces by feature artist Carol Ann. Flux Gallery artists contributed 30% of art sold to the TSO, and more than $2,500 was raised to benefit the Tucson Symphony Orchestra. “Let’s do it again next season!” was a common refrain.
