Saturday, August 31, 2019, 7:00 pm

Free Event

smoke signals with logos

Smoke Signals follows Victor and Thomas-Builds-the-Fire, two young Idaho men with wildly different memories of one Arnold Joseph, a former resident of their Idaho reservation who split years before and has just died in Phoenix. Arnold’s popular, athletic son, Victor, remembers him best as an alcoholic, occasionally abusive father, who drove off one day and never came back. By contrast, the highly-quirky, always-talking Thomas Builds-the-Fire, whom Arnold had saved from certain death years earlier, has chosen to romanticize the man’s life and deeds in a way that drives Victor crazy. However, circumstances bring this odd couple together in a funny and funky road trip to Phoenix to retrieve Arnold’s ashes.

This program is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Encaustic Painting Workshop with Maria Arvayo (Pascua Yaqui)

Saturday-Sunday, October 5-6, 2019, 9:00 am-3:00 pm

Cloud Bloom by Maria Arvayo

This two-day workshop provides an introduction to encaustic painting and is open to beginners as well those with some experience. We’ll take a brief look at the history of this ancient painting medium, as well as materials, supplies, tools, and some fun techniques. The term encaustic comes from the Greek word “to burn in.” Encaustic painting utilizes pigmented beeswax. Paint needs to be heated into a liquid to be applied to the surface, the surface is then reheated to fuse the paint. The quality of the surface has a unique sheen and depth. Aside from painting this medium lends itself well to mixed media, collage and even sculptural techniques.

Maria Arvayo is a member of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe. She's been working in encaustic for over 15 years and is a Tucson artist whose work focuses on images of the southwest and other observations from life. Maria works in encaustic and other painting media, teaches encaustic classes and exhibits locally.

Cost without accommodations: $250 per person for members or $275 for nonmembers (includes supplies and lunches)

To register call Amerind at 520.586.3666 or email amerind@amerind.org.

Capturing Sunlight: Images from the Southwest with Maria Arvayo (Pascua Yaqui)

November 9, 2019

Tall Grass

Tall Grass by Maria Arvayo

In her own words: My work focuses on depicting the Sonoran landscape. I attempt to capture the quality of light, the warmth and the distinct beauty. I work in a wide variety of media, but the majority of my work is in oil, acrylic, pastel, and encaustic. My work is inspired by the natural world. Some pieces, although they may seem abstract, are usually objects that by their own nature are abstract. Through my images I hope to express and share the beauty that I see around us.
