Mesa Art League has third show at ASU Gammage

April 21, 2011

For the past 75 years, the Mesa Art League has been encouraging its member artists to find their own styles and express themselves and their ideas in a variety of artistic ways.

Current League members will exhibit the fruits of their work in a juried show at ASU Gammage May 11-June 21.

The exhibition, the third for Mesa Art League at ASU Gammage, will be juried by Denis Landis and Cheryl Fecht.

On display will be oil, acrylic and water color paintings, photography – both film and digital – and mixed-media works.

Jurors Landis and Fecht both are inspired by the Southwest, though they express themselves in different ways. Landis’s current “muse” is the state of Arizona, and she is best known for her self-described “Modified Pointillism” style.

Fecht is a self-taught realist oil painter with a contemporary twist on colorization. She tends to look for peaceful reflective scenes on the water of nearby lakes, close-ups of tender desert flowers, atmospheric drama in the heavens, and the majestic buttes and canyons of the Southwest as subjects.

Mesa Art League was founded in 1936. From its inception, it has been a community-minded organization, supporting the arts, the children and those in need through its generous donations. The league works with local schools and retirement homes, and produces artistic events in the community. Meetings are held at 5 p.m. the first Tuesday of every month at the First United Methodist Church, 15 E. First Ave., Mesa. For more information about the league, go to
