More flux at Flux Gallery

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

Flux Gallery is once again in flux. Painter C. J. Shane and fiber artist Mary Vaneecke are leaving the gallery collective to focus on other prospects. Lee Roy Beach will be stepping back from the gallery as well, although we will continue to exhibit some of his work, along with work by original Flux member Steven Derks.

In addition, we are cutting back our hours. Effective immediately, we will be open only Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. To see the gallery by appointment at another time, please feel free to contact any one of us, via email or at the phone numbers below.

  • Peter Eisner, 520-465-6600
  • Sheryl Holland, 520-749-3829
  • Dragana Skrepnik, 520-404-9888
  • Lynne Yamaguchi, 520-760-8938

The gallery will be in a little disarray for the next few weeks because of the turnover, so please bear with us during the transition. We deeply appreciate the continuing support of all of you as we persist in our collective venture and adventure at Flux Gallery.

Tucson Artists’ Open Studio Tour

Monday, March 8th, 2010

The spring Tucson Artists’ Open Studio Tour is coming up again next weekend, March 13 and 14, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. Among the 89 artists participating are Flux artists Steven Derks, Peter Eisner, Maurice Sevigny, and Lynne Yamaguchi.

You can find all the details about the tour, including a complete list of participating artists and maps of the studio locations, online at the tour’s website or in the current issue of Zócalo magazine. (This “Tucson Urban Scene Magazine” is worth hunting down; read it online or find it at various locations around town.)

Tucson Open Studio Tour

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009

This weekend is the Tucson Open Studio Tour. From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday, 167 artists all over Tucson will open their studios to the public—including five of the Flux Gallery artists: Bryan Crow, Steven Derks, Peter Eisner (all three at the same studio), Maurice Sevigny, and Lynne Yamaguchi. You can download a combination calendar and map guide showing the locations of all the studios at the Tucson Pima Arts Council site or pick one up at various locations around town, such as libraries and galleries. We will have a short stack at Flux Gallery later today.

If you want more info, the Arizona Daily Star had an article about the tour in its Sunday paper. If you’re willing to register and login, you can read it online at azstarnet.com.

The studio tour gives you a chance to see how (or at least, where) your favorite artists work. You can see the tools and materials they use and learn about their process while also seeing (and being able to talk with them about) the artwork.

Flux Gallery has been benefiting from some good press about the gallery itself and about some its artists. Here are links to some recent articles and blog posts:

Back in June, before Flux opened, Arizona Public Media did a segment on “Going High Tech”—namely, using social media—in the arts, focusing on Steven Derks and Gallery 801.
