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.

What's New

 

Zen Mountain Gallery is pleased to welcome Jerome plein air painter Mark Hemleben to the gallery as featured artist for November Art Walk. Mark's Impressionist Landscapes capture the magnificence of nature's solitude documenting the change of light, and dance of shadows and colors. Nature's vibrancy, harmony and splendor are what inspire him to capture the abundance of life, energy, and the constant change of light and season.

Hemleben paints with energetic emotion. With a well controlled stroke he translates onto canvas expressive feeling. His dynamic paintings constantly capture you revealing more, drawing you in when suddenly you see them in a new light or from a different angle, revealing poetically, in rich color a landscape rarely treasured with the naked eye.

He has worked on a large scale with his art as a mural artist for private and corporate clients around the United States and Mexico. Hemleben has also traveled the world when serving as a U.S. Marine, and on painting commissions and retreats.

 Hemleben is from Lafayette, Louisiana, where he studied at Louisiana State University and then at Long Beach, CA  where he lived in an artist colony and at one time taught history.

A professional plein air landscape painter since 1996, Mark lives in Jerome, Arizona. He was named "Best Local Artist" by the readers of the Verde Valley newspapers for 2006.

Please join Zen Mountain Gallery during Art Walk to enjoy a glass of Arizona wine from Vino Zona and the chance to purchase a painting with Mark in the gallery.
