Art Exhibition: Susan Alberts
Monday, December 10
Sometimes, it takes a major life event to snap a person out of their rut and get them moving in a direction more in line with their soul. That’s what happened to me in 2009. A few years prior, I had earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Multimedia and had hoped to find work using my digital artistry skills. Instead I spent several years teaching technology at the elementary level - a job that, while enjoyable, was not fulfilling. Then, in 2009, my mom was diagnosed with cancer and died shortly thereafter. To process the grief I spent several weeks at the ocean. I stood on the California shoreline contemplating the meaning of life when the sunset “spoke” to me of how “all is ok”. It was that huge moment - and my attempt to capture it - that led to my first large scale painting….of the sunset, of course. That 3’x4’ canvas painting hangs in my house today. It was then that I began to focus on art full time. Since that time, I’ve continued to paint large and with broad brush strokes. I enjoy experimenting with everyday items and finding new ways to present them artistically. My current large-scale paintings are scenes from nature painted on wood panels, often with leftover house paint. The ocean and the sky are major influences to the way I make art and an inexplicable inner drive translates those influences to pieces that are both abstract and ethereal. Reinventing everyday items also applies to wine corks. Like many other people, I had been saving wine corks and ended up with a very large collection. Wondering what I would do with this stockpile - creative genius struck! What if I created a life-size guitar? That guitar was the first in a continuing attempt to use wine corks in unexpected ways such as a three foot wine bottle and the female form. One of my favorite parts of creating any art piece is figuring out how to resolve the problem of bringing it to life. It is the translation of a vision to the real world that keeps me motivated and creating. Susan Alberts www.facebook.com/susanlynnalberts www.instagram.com/susanlynnalberts www.susanlynnalberts.com

Debbie Kayatt, M.S., CYI, E-RYT 500, IYT, CAP & Patty Coughlin
Nourish yourself Beyond your Resolution! Ayurvedic Cooking and Eating for the Seasons Ayurvedic wisdom tells us the seasons are defined by the elements; air, space, fire, water & earth that are most present in the environment at the time. We have these similar energies in our bodies. When we recognize this connection to the Universe, we realize the importance of how we feed these energies. In these workshops, we explore the elements as they relate to us, how they impact choices in food and our digestion. In January, we will explore Digestion & Spices, learning how our health comes from how well we digest. Discussion will also include 'eating' and an introduction to the six tastes. We will learn how to make and use ghee. In March, we'll explore Earth & Water and the process of reawakening and mobilizing our bodies as we move through winter and into spring. We'll discuss the tastes, foods, spices for the season, slow earthy digestion and how to balance our Kapha. June focuses on Fire & Water, highlighting the need to cool the fire during the summer season into early fall in Phoenix. Summer eating, fiery digestion and balancing our Pitta will be discussed. The final session : Air & Space - Moving into late fall and preparing for winter, we want to warm and ground the body as we get ready to 'hibernate'. Discussion will include foods for late fall and early winter, irregular or airy digestion and balancing our Vata. You will be shown how to prepare seasonal offerings and enjoy a balanced meal with the cooks and co-participants of the workshop. Cost for this final session is $70 to cover the food cost. Registration closes on Saturday, Sept 8. Cancellation will forfeit $25 for food cost. No refunds will be granted to no shows. If you have food allergies or restrictions, please let us know at the time of registration. We will attempt to accommodate the restrictions.

Sometimes, it takes a major life event to snap a person out of their rut and get them moving in a direction more in line with their soul. That’s what happened to me in 2009. A few years prior, I had earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Multimedia and had hoped to find work using my digital artistry skills. Instead I spent several years teaching technology at the elementary level – a job that, while enjoyable, was not fulfilling. Then, in 2009, my mom was diagnosed with cancer and died shortly thereafter. To process the grief I spent several weeks at the ocean. I stood on the California shoreline contemplating the meaning of life when the sunset “spoke” to me of how “all is ok”. It was that huge moment – and my attempt to capture it – that led to my first large scale painting….of the sunset, of course. That 3’x4’ canvas painting hangs in my house today.
It was then that I began to focus on art full time. Since that time, I’ve continued to paint large and with broad brush strokes. I enjoy experimenting with everyday items and finding new ways to present them artistically. My current large-scale paintings are scenes from nature painted on wood panels, often with leftover house paint. The ocean and the sky are major influences to the way I make art and an inexplicable inner drive translates those influences to pieces that are both abstract and ethereal.
Reinventing everyday items also applies to wine corks. Like many other people, I had been saving wine corks and ended up with a very large collection. Wondering what I would do with this stockpile – creative genius struck! What if I created a life-size guitar? That guitar was the first in a continuing attempt to use wine corks in unexpected ways such as a three foot wine bottle and the female form.
One of my favorite parts of creating any art piece is figuring out how to resolve the problem of bringing it to life. It is the translation of a vision to the real world that keeps me motivated and creating.
Jill Brownley is a visual artist and writer from Pittsburgh, Penn. While she has been painting for as long as she can remember, she considers her artistic creativity to be mostly self-taught, with formal training helping to refine and polish her creative passion. She creates one-of-a-kind acrylic and mixed-media paintings of all sizes on gallery-wrapped canvas, wood panels, reclaimed wood and cardboard. She credits her ideas and inspiration from everyday objects, as well as finds inspiration in street art, graffiti, old buildings and faded signs.
Brownley describes her style of artwork as “urban abstract”…incorporating layers and textures, while drawing on her background in graphic design and typography. While some of her artwork relies heavily on her graphic design background, others tend to be on the looser, messier side.
From a very early age, Brownley had a strong connection with Southern Folk Art and The Blues. She was inspired to create art from repurposed materials, whether it was pieces of wood strewn on the roadside, an old discarded window frame or tin panel relegated to a junk pile, or just some old cardboard box. She was a kid who had limited art supplies who had to make do with what was available, but saw it as a challenge to create art from discarded materials and leftover house paint.
“There’s something about a bygone era that I am drawn to and feel a connection with,” Brownley explains. “It’s like bringing an old idea or theme back to life with a renewed vibe. I love creating a textured, retro or vintage feel that incorporates typography. I strive to combine my offbeat style with my love for the unconventional to create something edgy and unique.”
While most of her current collection of paintings are on gallery-wrapped canvas or mixed-media wood panels, she still loves the edgy, raw charm of found materials and reclaimed wood that’s incorporated into her Blues series and the New Orleans folk art series. Additionally, cardboard remnants still make a strong appearance in her mail art.
Brownley added, “The urge to create art is irrepressible. I see ideas and inspirations every day, everywhere, in ordinary situations and in found objects. It’s that passion that drives me to create something beautiful, but a bit unconventional.”
Brownley earned her degree in visual communications and illustration from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, as well as a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Communications and a Master’s degree in International Business from Point Park University in Pittsburgh.
By keenly observing her environment Charlotte Fischer grasped early on, that imagination, harnessed with a clear purpose and determination, leads to profound levels of creativity and beauty.
Fischer chose art as a career path (1979 – 1982 New England School of Art & Design, Boston, Massachusetts – graphic design/book design). Her expansive and rewarding endeavors in graphic design were followed by an immersion into the world of oil painting (2004 – 2014 River Gallery School, Brattleboro, Vermont). Here she was able to develop a technique combining oil paint and a cold wax medium which she currently utilizes and experiments with to portray the many intricacies of the Sonoran Desert landscape.
The artist has resided in Phoenix since 2014. She is a member of the Arizona Artist Guild. She also enjoys working artistically with a veterans group which meets at AAG once a month.
Prints of the artist’s artwork are available upon request. You can find the order form and her business card at the front desk.

A versatile artist, Cynthia Ganem works in oil, acrylic and watercolor. She finds that painting suits her personality – spontaneous, colorful, unpredictable, “I have had a love for art ever since I could hold a pencil. Working with a variety of subjects, I find strong light, shadow and color inspire me to paint in what I describe as ‘stylized realism.’ My paintings grab the viewer’s attention and brings them into the excitement of the moment captured.”
She has studied at Phoenix and Glendale Community Colleges, Arizona State University and with many well-known local artists.

She also offers workshops in showing others how to explore their curious souls and feed them with creativity.
Sonja’s philosophy isn’t that we all are artists, but that we have something in our souls
that wants to create light from dark, or bring the dark into the open. You will see in
much of her artwork, and photo’s that she doesn’t see something that was, but the new
life that is beginning at that moment.
Locally, she was the first artist to hold an exhibition on Iphoneography, in 2013, at First
Studio Gallery, in Phoenix. The show was a resounding success and led to many other
photographers and artists to explore this type of art. She captures that idea in her book
“Creative Path, Creative Soul, available through Amazon.
Published in 2012, Creative Path, Creative Soul, which was internationally successful for

Joan Waters: The Garden
How is The Garden a model for our creative practice?
Joan Waters exhibits welded steel sculpture and paintings that explore how the analogy of the garden can provide a model for our creative practice. No matter what our creative expression is, from yoga to music to mathematics, observing and enjoying the natural cycles of the garden can inspire and sustain our paths.
Beginning with industrial sheets of steel, Waters draws and sketches the plans for each new work. With time, the processes of welding and grinding help the piece grow and take shape. Patinas add color to make the piece blossom.
Kathy Zimmerman Photography
Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving.
What you have caught on film is captured forever…it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.
I have two main desires in life: to travel and to photograph. I am very happy doing one or the other. I’m in heaven when I’m doing them together. I am self taught for over 25 years. I am proud to feature images from my vacation travels in Canada,
England, Costa Rica, Mexico, France, Spain, India and across the United States.
I love stepping foot in an unknown place, or perhaps a known place with a new perspective, and opening myself up to its dynamics, its culture, people, capturing it all in photographs. I enjoy wandering around overlooked streets, and finding little curiosities as much as photographing iconic landmarks.

We are excited to announce our first art exhibit for 2015, Organic Abstraction, featuring paintings by local artist, Linda Pullinsi. Linda is a popular art instructor of both adults and children and has been a mentor for Free Arts for almost 20 years.
“The need to be close to nature has always beat in my heart. The song of the birds, the wind rustling the leaves and the sound of the water soothe my soul. I feel safest in the middle of the woods, on a mountaintop, or deep in the desert. Digging in the earth and growing things is therapy. This show combines my two loves, art and nature. I love to create an image that’s never existed and enjoy playing with color and getting them to harmonize and vibrate with each other. I have slowly healed my soul with artistic expression and a big source of joy for me is helping others to express themselves artistically, especially abused children through Free Arts. I am thrilled to share my work with the Desert Song community!”
Pieces of Me: Free Arts for Abused Children of Arizona
This exhibit was created by young women living in Child Protective Services custody. Each girl was asked to paint individually about one unique aspect of their life. The girls then collaborated on a color scheme, layout and three group pieces. This exhibit is the result of their collaboration. Prints are available for sale. We will also have a donation jar for a holiday collection.

Refreshments will follow.
