Tempe Xhibition: celebrating ten years

Sept. 9, 2017 - Jan. 6, 2018

Tempe has earned the reputation for being a smart, diverse and overall a very cool place. It is just big enough to entice new businesses and tourists and just small enough to give residents a home-town atmosphere. At one time or another, many of the Valley’s movers and shakers in the arts have lived, studied, worked and/or played here. Some studied at Arizona State University and chose to stay while others may have moved on, but continue to think of Tempe as “theirs.” This exhibition celebrates the creative, funky and innovative spirit of Tempe and some of the people who make it cool.

Exhibiting Artists: Kristin Bauer, Angie Dell, Tlisza Jaurique, Lena Klett, Mark Klett, Natalie Klett, Melissa Martinez, Emily Matyas, Dan Mayer, Jacob Meders, Marie Navarre, John Randall Nelson, Kyle O’Malley, Emmett Potter, Emily Ritter, Christy Weiser, Garth Weiser, Kurt Weiser and Marcus Zilliox. Thank you: Friends of Tempe Center for the Arts, ASU’s Pyracantha Press and the University of Advancing Technology in Tempe.
