DUE DATE EXTENDED TO   FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2012, 4 PM ARIZONA TIMELink to website: http://www.phoenix.gov/arts/businessoac/index.htmlThe Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture   requests qualifications from professional artists with demonstrated design   team and community experience. There are four commissions available at this time. The selected artists or   artist teams are expected to work in a collaborative manner with City   departments, selected design teams, and community groups.

• One artist or artist team will be selected to work collaboratively to   design pedestrian amenities to improve the streetscape along Hatcher Road,   between Central Avenue and 5th Street as part of the Hatcher Road Public Art Project.

• One artist or artist team will be selected to design streetscape   enhancements that improve pedestrian and transit features as part of   Neighborhood Services Department upgrades in the area as part of the 16th Street and Bethany Home Road Public   Art Project.

• One artist or artist team will be selected to work with the community, City   departments and the Salt River Project to improve the safety and connectivity   of major street and trail crossings along the Grand Canal through central   Phoenix. The Grand Canal’s trail system could provide a bicycle- and   walker-friendly transportation corridor linking neighborhoods and amenities   in central Phoenix to such landmarks as Pueblo Grande, Phoenix Sky Harbor   International Airport, and Valley Metro Light Rail. This project could integrate   designs into existing canal bridges and include path improvements, lighting,   trail markers, shade features and other essentials as part of the Arterial Canal Crossings and Trail   Connections Public Art project.

Invitation from Artist Stanley Grosse

A Personal Open Invitation from Fine Artist and

Former Capuchino Art Teacher, Stanley Grosse:

Aloha all!

If you haven’t been contacted already, here is some

information on my One-Man Show that I’m having at

the brand new “Paige Gallery,” 828 Brannan Street,

in San Francisco, and you are invited to attend.

Former Capuchino student, Ken Paige (‘62) has

constructed his beautiful new art gallery in the Design Center of San

Francisco. The first-floor gallery is ready now, with completion of the

second floor trendy cocktail lounge, and third-floor upscale restaurant

coming very soon.

The opening date of the show is Thursday evening, October 4, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. (There is lots of

parking in the area, especially after 5 p.m.)

I feel so honored by this possibility to show my art.

Two weeks ago I

shipped 27 pieces, some of my best work, to Ken. This he is using to

augment other works that he currently has. Ken Paige is printing a catalog

of the show as well as two mailings. In addition, Ken has taken three of

my pieces to Magnolia Press. Magnolia is a

state-of-the-art, Fine Art print lab that is

noted for printing many internationally

known artists work. They use the latest

digital photography equipment, which

enables them to do gigantic Giclee prints on

canvas or paper. The print team has

enlarged three of my pieces to 96″ X 64″ and

printed them on a high-grade canvas.

Magnolia has also had one of my painting

images woven into a 6-foot tapestry with

the weaving done in Belgium.

So this is quite a thrill to have all this

happening at the same time, along with Bob

Will producing and editing my book, “The Art of Stanley Grosse”. Ken

said he would have a few of those books at the gallery.

I would be honored to have you come to the opening, or see it at a later

date. I am very proud of the show. The exhibition will be up for six weeks,

right up to Thanksgiving. Although the One-Man Show will end, many of my works will still be on view.

Sending Big Mahalo’s,

Stanley

P.S. If you would like to be on the Paige Gallery mailing list,

you can e-mail your request to paigekenneth@gmail.com.

Stanley Grosse, fine artist, now makes his home in Hawaii. You can view his artwork on his web sites:

Priorities

The first priority in carving out a space for ourselves, whether for a home, a place of business or both is a practical matter. We ask ourselves first about what will take place here. Eating, sleeping, producing a family, producing an income, the amount of space we need and a brief description of the type of neighbors we want near us. The latter will immediately generate new issues. There will be questions about safety, proximity to hospitals and municipal amenities and oh yes, is there a park nearby, a shopping center (“what kind of grocery stores?” perhaps).

And then the furnishings; some of us enjoy making these choices for ourselves. Others need assistance. Some will leave all or most of these decisions to a professional; the RE agent, the architect, the structural engineer, the interior designer. But nearly everyone retains control of the choices of the art in their home. Some guidance perhaps but absolutely the last say-so for this is the most personal choice of all, second only to choosing a mate, more important than the right garment for a special occasion.

Lee Broom Gallery and Design has been in business for a long time. I am Lee Broom. I work with some very talented people. Some have international reputations. Some are still students. All have the eye sight of a child. All agree that the greatest thrill of all is the thrill of discovery.

At the moment I am exercising some choices of my own. I have never used a website for example. That is on its way. Until then I want to enjoy the thrill of creating a blog. I want to meet people not previously known to me. Most of my career occurred in the foothills of North Scottsdale and Palm Desert.
