The Walter Art Gallery presents the new exhibition “Elemental Figures” featuring the work of local artists: Amanda Adkins, John Tuomisto Bell, and Abbey Messmer.
“Elemental Figures” opens with a virtual reception to the public from 6:30 to 7 p.m., on Thursday, Sept. 17, broadcasted live on The Walter Art Gallery Facebook page and led by the gallery manager, Charlotte Strawn.
“Elemental Figures” will be on display at Walter Art Gallery, 6425 E. Thomas Road in Scottsdale, from Sept. 17 through Oct. 15.
The three artists share an affinity for the human figure and the ways in which humans interact with, affect, and are affected by their surroundings, according to a press release, adding that the artists use fire, water, and earth to illustrate, manipulate, and create their images and sculptures.
The artist, according to the release, communicates on a visceral level an understanding of truth and what is real with observations through icons such as a lone figure, an isolated head, or a fist.
The Walter Project is an innovative community of artists, entertainers, makers, and visionaries who come together to form various creative ventures such as The Walter Art Gallery and The Walter Hive.
Known for their art cars such as Walter the Bus, Big Red, and Kalliope, the purpose of this community is to share joy and spark creativity through unique experiences, added the release.
