Seeking the Wild – Tubac ArtWalk
Meet the artists and see artist demonstrations on Saturday, March 10th from 1PM – 4PM.
Pokey Park Sculpture demonstration.
Pokey has completed a commission to create 43 Animal Habitat sculptures for the expansion to the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford University Medical Center in Palo Alto, CA.
See the most complete set of sculpture outside of the Children’s Wing of the hospital during Tubac Artwalk. With the idea of creating habitats for healing, each level has a different California ecosystem theme: Deep Ocean; Shallow Water; Rocky Shore; Redwood Forest; Valley; Desert; Foothills and Mountain.
Meet the artist Darcie Peet:
Whether a 5-day pack trip into Canyon de Chelly, AZ, or the Wind River Range, WY; hiking to timberline to capture a painting of late spring snow; braving the desert sun of Saguaro National Monument; or tucked out of the wind behind scraggly, alpine evergreen, high on Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park, the extraordinary diversity of terrain, climate, seasons and light of the Rockies and desert, provide never-ending sources of adventure and inspiration. And most recently… canoeing, kayaking, biking or hiking the Canadian Rockies, Alaska, Glacier National Park, California wine country and Sonoma Coast, and winter in Monument Valley offers stunning raw material for future paintings. “For me, these back country spaces are powerful, humbling, have such a sense of awe and deserve great respect. Along with light, mood and a strong sense of place, it is these feelings and experiences that I strive to capture in my work.”
