Thank goodness for creative power couples -- especially the ones who've decided to settle in Phoenix.
|"Arc of Departure" by Carol Panaro-Smith and James Hajicek|
These duos have created art galleries, revamped neighborhoods, and supported the local art scene. And on December 8, they'll tell you how they do it.
Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art
's annual ARTISTS on ARTISTS
discussion series is back with an event curated by local artists and SMoCA Artist Advisory Council members Peter Bugg
and William LeGoullon
Legoullon says the event schedule is fairly laid back; ceramicist Jeremy Bridell
and multimedia artist Cyndi Coon
, photographers and co-founders of Art Intersetion James Hajicek
and Carol Panaro-Smith
, and painters Anne and Jerry Schutte
will discuss what they do, how they collaborate -- and how they're still together -- for a live audience.
"In addition to finding creative couples, [Bugg] and I wanted to bring in a variety of artistic medium," says Legoullon. "These couples are bridging the gaps between fine art and commercial work and have interesting dynamics within and outside of their own artwork."
The event, which starts at 7 p.m., is free and will be followed by a casual conversation time in SMoCA's new lounge at 7374 E. 2nd Street. More info here
