When you are an in-demand wildlife sculptor and busy gallery owner like Ken Rowe, it’s not always possible to take a road trip to Montana or Alaska to study your subjects in the field. When Ken needs to stay close to home, he finds inspiration for his next bronze sculpture by visiting wildlife sanctuaries such as Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center in Scottsdale. He’s been known to spend entire days at the 10-acre preserve, which is home to rescued wild animals including bears, mountain lions, javelina, coyotes, wolves and bobcats. In order to raise awareness – and funds – for the nonprofit organization, Rowe Fine Art Gallery will host Wild at Heart, a fundraiser and exhibit, on May 2 from 4 to 8 pm.

Representatives from SWCC will be at the gallery along with several animal ambassadors including Sage, a 2-year-old bobcat. Sage was found abandoned on the side of the road in Scottsdale when she was a kitten. After she imprinted on her human caretakers and was unable to be released into the wild, Sage spends her days traveling to schools and local organizations to educate children and adults about the importance of native wildlife.

Sage is also one of Ken’s favorite models. For this fundraiser, Ken has created four clay sketches depicting animals living at SWCC including Sage; a female Mexican gray wolf who continuously outsmarted hunters; an African fox kept as an illegal pet until he escaped from his owners; and a leopard who was tormented by exotic animal breeders working for the Las Vegas entertainment industry and owners of a southern Arizona zoo before being rescued by SWCC in 2011. Make a donation to SWCC for the chance to win one of the four sketches. All donors will also receive a 10 percent discount at Rowe Fine Art Gallery. Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served.

“Many people don’t realize that I sculpt from real-life references,” says Ken, who will head to Alaska to sculpt in the field this summer. “It’s convenient for me to be able to go down to Scottsdale and spend time with these majestic animals. Many have been rescued from some truly heartbreaking situations, and SWCC relies on donations so that they never have to turn away an animal in need. I’m hoping this will be a profitable evening for SWCC and a unique experience for animal lovers. How often do you get to see a bobcat in an art gallery?”

Rowe Fine Art Gallery represents traditional and contemporary southwestern sculptors, painters and jewelers. The gallery is located under the bell tower in Patio de las Campanas at Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village (336 SR 179, Suite A-102 in Sedona). It is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 928-282-8877.

 

Sedona, AZ – Joshua Tobey’s first self-portrait didn’t depict a college student on the cusp of following in his artistic father’s footsteps. Instead, he sculpted a bear with flat ears and a morose expression. He titled the sculpture Timid Bear, and it became the cornerstone of his entire career. Today, Joshua sculpts impressionistic wildlife pieces that convey human emotion using the expression and body language of animals including mountain lions, coyotes, buffalos, horses and deer. Come see this unique form of artwork at Rowe Fine Art Gallery during Joshua’s one-man show, Simply Extraordinary, on April 4 from 5 to 8 p.m. and April 5 from 1 to 4 p.m. The show is part of the Sedona Gallery Association’s 1st Friday Gallery Tour.

Joshua, who was recently chosen to be one of two signature artists for the prestigious 2014 Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival, will introduce new works including two pre-cast pieces. The first (currently untitled) sculpture features a bugling elk while the second, titled Rain Dance, captures a mule deer having some fun. “I live in Colorado, and all over the West, we suffer from a lack of rain,” says Joshua. “I watched these mule deer in my front yard in a rainstorm, and they were celebrating it the same way we do.”

The show at Rowe Fine Art Gallery will be Joshua’s only Arizona appearance this year. He has been coming to Sedona every year for the past 12 years, and he’s garnered quite a following. “Rowe Gallery is such a personal space, and I’ll see collectors I’ve known for years as well as meet new ones,” Joshua says. “I learn about my artwork when I meet people and see how they react to the sculptures.”

Joshua was born in Oregon but grew up in Santa Fe where he apprenticed with his father, renowned sculptor Gene Tobey. Joshua graduated from Western State Colorado University with a degree in three-dimensional art. His studio is in Loveland, Colorado.

"BRINGING A NEW DIMENSON TO STILL LIFE"
New Works by Sue Krzyston
Meet-and-Greet Artist Reception

Sedona, AZ – For the fourth consecutive year, still-life oil painter Sue Krzyston will discuss subject matter and technique during an exclusive show at Rowe Fine Art Gallery. On March 7 from 5-8 p.m., the gallery presents Bringing a New Dimension to Still Life. Sue will be back in the gallery on March 8 from 1-4 p.m. Though she’s well-known for capturing the antiquity and texture of Native American artifacts in her paintings, this year Sue will also unveil paintings that include more traditional still-life subjects such as porcelain,
fruit and lace.

 

Art collectors are fortunate that Sue is taking time from her busy schedule for this Sedona event. Last year, Sue was commissioned by the Fresh Produce Association of the Americas to create paintings for the Washington, D.C. offices
of Arizona’s two senators and eight members of the House of Representatives. Sue was asked to create paintings that depict the fruits and vegetables grown in North and South America while also representing Arizona’s cultural heritage. Six of the 10 paintings are complete.

“It was a challenge,” says Sue, laughing. “I had to make sure you could tell the different between a cucumber and a zucchini! I also incorporated Navajo blankets, copper pots
and Hopi baskets. I think it has really made me grow as an artist.”

Sue, who lives in Phoenix, is renowned for her painting technique. She utilizes glazes and up to six layers of paint to achieve texture and to demonstrate the effects of light and shadow. Many items seen in her paintings come from her own extensive collection. “I collect pieces that speak to me,” she says. “I see the beauty in an artifact, and I want to capture it
in a painting.”

Rowe Fine Art Gallery represents traditional and contemporary southwestern sculptors, painters and jewelers. The gallery is located under the bell tower in Patio de las Campanas at Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village (336 SR 179, Suite A-102 in Sedona).

ROWE FINE ART GALLERY WELCOMES MARK EBERHARD

'Red Rock Harris Hawk' Oil Painting by Mark Eberhard of Rowe Gallery
“Red Rock Harris Hawk” oil on canvas (20"H x 28"W)
by Mark Eberhard

Sedona, AZ (December 3, 2012) – Wildlife painter Mark Eberhard began drawing as soon as his mother handed him a pencil. When his grandparents gave him a book about birds only a few years later, he was transfixed by our feathered friends, and he spent hours quietly drawing various species. Mark went on to earn a master’s in fine arts with a major in design from Yale University and had a successful career in graphic design before becoming a full-time painter 12 years ago. Now, Rowe Fine Art Gallery welcomes Mark into its flock of traditional and contemporary southwestern artists. Rowe Gallery is the only gallery in Arizona representing Mark’s oil-on-canvas and oil-on-board bird paintings.

 

 

Residing in Ohio, Mark has traveled the globe searching for subjects to paint. He’s been on safari in Kenya, explored Florida’s Everglades and spent time in the red rocks of Sedona. But Mark maintains he is equally as inspired by the chipmunks playing outside his studio window as he is by the exotic locales he has visited. “I want people to see the beauty and humanity in nature that I see,” says Mark. “A bare tree branch can be just as beautiful and moving as a Grand Canyon vista. I hope people will slow down and take time to not just look at the trees in the forest but also the leaves on the trees.”

Mark methodically plans each painting before he even picks up his paintbrush. He spends time researching bird species and their preferred environments so his paintings have a strong element of realism. He also creates interpretations of scenes he has already witnessed whether in his travels or in his backyard. “I feel the paintings are already out there in the universe,” says Mark. “I have simply been given the ability to see them.”

Stop into Rowe Fine Art to see Mark’s striking paintings, which combine his avian subjects with brightly colored backgrounds and the design elements he learned in college. Rowe Gallery is located under the bell tower in Patio de las Campanas at Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village. It is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 928-282-8877 or visit www.rowegallery.com.

KIM KORI AND KEN ROWE TURN ROUNDABOUTS INTO WORKS OF ART

  "Beyond" bronze sculpture by Kim Kori and Ken Rowe Featured in Sedona, Arizona highway roundabout

Sedona, AZ (March 30, 2012) – A project nearly three years in the making finally came to completion last month when sculptures created by local artists Kim Kori and Ken Rowe were installed at Sedona’s two major roundabouts. The bronze sculptures, “Above and Beyond,” are located at the intersection of SR 89A and SR 179 and at SR 89A and Brewer Road.

The sculptures were part of the Sedona City Council and the Art in Public Places Committee’s roundabout art competition, a concept first discussed in June 2009. A call to artists was announced in March 2010, and Kim and Ken were one of 20 contest entries. The Sedona locals were announced as the winners of the competition at the end of 2010, and they began working on the sculptures immediately. Kim and Ken are both represented by Rowe Fine Art Gallery in Tlaquepaque.

“It is an honor to have worked on this project with Ken and everyone else involved in making it come about,” says Kim. “When driving through the roundabouts for the first few days after the installation, it felt surreal. Now I have a calm feeling that the sculptures are home where they belong. It feels very good to have a piece of my soul settled in the heart of Sedona where I have lived for the majority of my life.”

“Above and Beyond” includes two separate sculptures. “Above” stands 13 feet tall and features three ravens soaring above red rocks and petroglyphs. “Beyond” is 12 feet tall and includes an eagle with a 7-foot wingspan flying over red rock formations. The sculptures were designed to blend in with the natural environment while reiterating Sedona’s commitment to the arts. The project defines the concept of collaboration. Kim and Ken employed the talents of others including Sedona Bronze, who cast the bronze portion of the sculptures, and Excalibur, who fabricated the rocks in steel from Kim and Ken’s design.

“As soon as we learned we’d been chosen for the project, there was this sense of obligation to the community of Sedona to create something that enhanced our area’s natural beauty,” says Ken. “But I don’t think I realized the magnitude of it all until the sculptures were put in place. As a native Arizonan, this has been the biggest accomplishment in my sculpting career. I drive through the roundabouts every day, and I’m so proud of what I see.”
