Concurrent solo exhibitions by two thrilling Arizona artists will fill the YC Prescott Art Gallery this winter with strange ceramic creatures and delicate mixed-media messages.

On one side of the gallery, artist Tristyn Bustamante will show her Postbiological Ponderings, an exhibition of colorful ceramic sculptures built by traditional hand-building and throwing methods. A graduate of Arizona State University, Bustamante designed each form with the intent to produce playful sculptures which are ideologically deep yet approachable.

Her aim in this ongoing body of work is to impart an overall experience of wonderment toward a place in time where technologies have integrated with living organisms and evolved.

On the other side, artist Tess Mosko Scherer will present When Women Were Birds, an exhibition of intricate mixed-media images born from paper and thread, in which simplified form and color convey and illuminate complex and universal themes. A former gallery owner and director, Mosko-Scherer is Executive Director of the Arizona Art Alliance and Director of Facilitation and Curriculum for the World Academy for the Future of Women, for which she has presented arts programs in China and Bangladesh.

Both solo shows run from Jan. 20 to March 3, 2023. An Opening Reception will be held during the Fourth Friday Artwalk on Friday, January 27, 2023, 5pm-7:30pm

All events are free and open to the public.
