Bobby Beals and Anthony Abbate of the BEALS & ABBATE FINE ART GALLERY on Canyon Road have come up with a dandy way to showcase their artists. They created Art Chat with the Inn of the Anasazi and this lovely partnership works for both the artists and the Inn's guests. The Inn places an invitation to the event - held in their 'library' - on the guest's pillow and provides wine and nibbles...
And the gallery brings a featured artist - Raymond Nordwall the week I attended - and a collection of their work.
Nordwall is a member of the Pawnee tribe of Oklahoma and Red Lake Chippewa. His passion for Indian art began at an early age - encouraged by his Mother - and he later began to study and create monotypes, becoming a full-time artist in his early twenties.
If you'd like to receive an invitation to the next ART CHAT, contact the gallery.
