We’re happening this Summer!
Things haven’t slowed down a bit here at the Lowe House Project. We’re wishing Rick Wheeler the best as he moves on, and very excited to be welcoming Barbara Kuzara as resident artist to the Lowe House Project!
Barbara also is a fabulous painter and printmaker, a creative par excellence. She’ll be joining a remarkable line-up of artists in residency who’ll be creating here over time. She will be sharing her work and talents, such as her very popular Printing Without a Press playshop. She is also co-curator with Ricardo Santos Hernandez of the Rio Compartido/Shared River exhibit and the events at the Historic Lowe House that will run concurrently in conjunction with the Tubac Presidio’s Smithsonian Institute’s WaterWays Exhibit beginning in October. Check out “Calls to Artists” for a prospectus.
To further the impact of the WaterWays exhibit, LHP has just been awarded a grant from Arizona Humanities to organize a village-wide event celebrating our own important local waterway–the Santa Cruz River– in November! More about this later as plans develop. Contact me if you want to be involved.
Tubac Village Artists Association members’ work is now featured in our main gallery! TVAA under Barbara’s leadership as president is working on lots of happenings starting this summer, including meet & greets with Tubac’s artists–the first on June 22nd–rotating exhibits of their work, and a special celebration/opening July 27th.
The date has been set for the 3rd Annual Van Gogh Sunflower Paint Out–September 28th–earlier this year when the sunflowers throughout the Village of Tubac will be in full bloom! In July, the Village-wide planting of the seeds will begin. Undoubtedly, there will be a celebration to mark the occasion yet to be determined.
The Historic Lowe House, portions of which date back to 1767, will be getting some TLC and hopefully much-needed repairs and upgrades.
No lazy days of summer for us. Continue to check our calendar and Facebook pages for updates on upcoming summer events.
Get in touch with me about your ideas for happenings–playshops, events, programming. We’re always receptive to your suggestions and to those of creatives willing to share their gifts and talents in our very special Historic Lowe House.
And because we are dependent on your support to keep going and growing, a simple reminder: LHP is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit so your donations are tax deductible and your time as volunteers helpful in so many ways. Thank you!
