Great August First Friday

It was a fun first Friday at the Gallery...great guitar music from Tony, and  surprise birthday party for Dick Haynes.  Lots of art lovers, and lots of sales. Featured artists this month are:

Kim Hoshal Photographer - August Featured Artist
Born and raised in Florida, Kim spent most of her life as a professional dancer for Walt Disney Company and other choreographers before turning her artistic passions to photography. On a trip to the southwest she became entranced by the every evolving light and iconic landscapes which have become the primary subject of her works. Her work has been featured in magazines, calendars, album covers, and most recently for a hiking guidebook published by Arizona Highways. She has studied with David Muench, Jack Dykings, and John Fielder.  Kim is based in Sedona, Arizona and has a gallery in Jerome, Arizona.
