Magical Realism: The Art of Brenda Edwards

Repeats every day until Mon Jan 01 2018.

Arizona State University Fine Arts alumna Brenda Edwards brings the color of the desert to Polytechnic campus Library.

“I consider everything art. My home, nature, the desert, animals and people, all are works of art," Edwards says. "I approach everything as an artist, and take a creative approach to all that I do. I made a decision to live in Arizona when I was 18 years old. I have never regretted that. I love the color and the light of the Sonoran Desert, and spend a good percentage of my week hiking near my home in South Mountain. In the heat of the summer I am on the mountain at 5 a.m. with my dog — and the coyote, owl, javelina and rattlesnake — whoever shows up. Nature preserves all that is precious to us, and I honor nature with my paintings. Arizona is breathtaking and is the inspiration for many of my paintings. I hope to impart to my audience a unique, smile-provoking perspective.”   

The exhibit will be on display through Dec. 31.
