Art & Exhibits: Week of Oct. 15
"Canyonlands," an exhibit of works by Rachel Housman, is hanging for viewers to see at Eye on the Mountain Gallery, 117 N. McCormick St. in downtown Prescott's McCormick Arts District. Housman recently returned from Moab, Utah, where the "psychedelic southwestern landscapes inspired by the beauty of the canyon lands of southern Utah" ignited her imagination for her paintings. Housman used acrylics as if they were watercolors for the layer effect and transparency, giving the work a lightness and spontaneity. "I hope to bring happiness to the viewer through the color spectrum and letting my love of the desert shine through," she says. The show runs through Nov. 1, with an artist's reception planned from 6 to 9 p.m. on Oct. 22 during the 4th Friday Art Walk.
