"Seeing Eye to Eye: Creative Dialogues between a Mother and Daughter" features the works of Karen Lindquist and Signe Lindquist at 'Tis Arts Center's mezzanine gallery. Painting since childhood, through their university and post-graduate studies and on to this day, Karen and Signe have come to realize that their work embodies profound conversations that strengthen their art as well as their friendship. Signe expresses interest with viscosity of paint and large sweeping strokes of color. She also creates monotypes, a printmaking process that produces one-of-a-kind work of art. On the other side of the conversation, Karen's figurative work has evolved into a fascination with free-flowing media and evocative imagery. The artists will be on hand from 5 to 7 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 13, during an opening reception. Signe will conduct a Gyotaku workshop (ancient Japanese printmaking with fish) for children of all ages from noon to 3 p.m. on Aug. 22. Another reception will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. on Aug. 27 during the 4th Friday Art Walk. The gallery is located at 105 S. Cortez St., in Prescott. For more information, call 775-0223.
Artist Anne H. Legge's works will be showcased from Aug. 6 to Sept. 2 at Eye on the Mountain Gallery. Of her work, Legge says, "I create original woodworks that tell the story of everyday life, and I try to set the scene of events that exist with or without specific notice." Her woodworks, she says, "are fun, inspiring and original. I add found objects to some of my works that tell the story. The end result is a glimpse into the world others may experience." Legge will greet guests during an artist's reception from 6 to 9 p.m. on Aug. 27 during the 4th Friday Art Walk. Eye on the Mountain Gallery is located at 117 N. McCormick St., in Prescott. For more information, call 928-308-0319.
