Bill Peters

Bill Peters is an international visual artist working primarily in photography. He trained in film, photography and the sciences at the University of Southern California and holds an MA in the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology from the University of Toronto.

Bill’s work has developed into four current series: “When the City Isn’t Looking”, an abstract reflection on the emotional qualities of cities; “When Water Dreams”, an exploration of the metaphorical and abstract nature of water in the landscape; “Exclusionary Landscapes”, an aerial photography project that raises questions both about our human relationship to the use of land and “Semiotica”, an artistic response to signs and symbols. The Exclusionary Landscapes images, typically printed 30 to 40 inches high and many feet wide, reflect the formalism sometimes associated with the New Topographics movement.

Bill Peters’ images have been shown in over thirty exhibitions. The Alberta Foundation for the Arts has acquired one of his Exclusionary Landscapes series for the Province of Alberta’s collection and another work in this series is being featured in a show at the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies, one of western Canada’s leading fine and contemporary art museums during 2015.  His images are regularly exhibited at the Jack Singer Concert Hall, Calgary, Canada’s primary concert and Philharmonic venue. Bill has achieved a high level of mastery in digital printing and is frequently called upon to give courses, print for other artists or consult regarding the medium.

He is represented by Zen Mountain Gallery in Jerome, Arizona; Willock and Sax Gallery in Banff, Canada and for corporate interiors by Exploration Arts in Calgary. Bill is also a leading non-profit consultant and museum planner. His numerous projects in this realm include the TELUS Spark Science Centre in Calgary and the Academic Strategic Plan for the Alberta College of Art and Design.

Bill spends a portion of each year in Northern Arizona and Zen Mountain Gallery is pleased to represent his work in this area.

Zen Mountain Gallery welcomes Fine art ceramicist Luna Patterson as featured artist for January Art Walk. Luna Patterson is known for the beauty of her hand built forms and remarkable color achieved through pit firing. Her colors are suggestive of the Arizona desert and local red rocks. Originally from Denmark, Luna has lived in Arizona since 1992. She has studied pottery at the college level, but is largely self-taught and takes an explorative and experimental approach to her art and is now teaching pit fire techniques. She has won numerous awards for her work including first and third place in the 2008 and 2009 Arizona Clay Olympics. Luna’s work epitomizes Zen Mountain Gallery’s emphasis on contemporary and contemplative fine art, while maintaining a beautiful organic simplicity. Please Join us for wine and food as we celebrate the New Year and Luna’s new work.
