John Armstrong is a master printer, fine art framer, artist, and exhibition designer. He has printed for many esteemed artists over the years including Dorothy Fratt, who is also featured in this show. For over 30 years, John owned a Phoenix-based fine arts printing studio with his wife, Armstrong-Prior, which showcased a variety of his own print media and the collections of local and international contemporary artists, donors, collectors, community organizations and museums. His work offers a feeling of personal sensitivity and intuitive color sense.
Dorothy Fratt was an award-winning artist, best described as a “colorist” who used color as an expressive tool. Fratt’s most well-known paintings feature complex relationships of color and shape, conveyed by the simplest means, yet made through a process that often took an extraordinary amount of time.
Richard Hogan’s pieces have been exhibited throughout the Southwest. His work, with its distinctive use of line and color form, comes off as minimal and meditative as well as energized and expressive, with much of his influence coming from the beauty of the New Mexico landscape.
