David Dawangyumptewa

 Zen Mountain Gallery is pleased to now represent noted Hopi artist David Dawangyumptewa. His work has been recognized with awards from the Museum of Northern Arizona, American Indian Heritage Foundation and Santa Fe and Colorado Indian Markets. David Dawangyumptewa has been represented by galleries in Arizona, California and Texas and has just ended an exhibition at the Museum of Northern Arizona on May 25, 2015; this impressive body of work is now becoming available at Zen Mountain Gallery. The style and content of Dawangyumptewa’s work are reflective of his Hopi Background and Water Clan affiliation. His works are abstracted variations of traditional water symbols, frogs, dragonflies and turtles. David was raised on the Hopi and Navajo Nations and has studied at the Institute of American Indian Arts, Haskell Institute in Kansas and Northern Arizona University. His early career included stints as a lighting roadie for Jackson Brown and Linda Ronstadt. David has been a very significant arts advocate lobbying to bring greater access for First Nations Peoples of Canada to U.S. markets. He has been instrumental in numerous museum, Native American Arts Market, and local Arts projects including the founding of the Flagstaff Festival of Arts. David Dawangyumptewa’s colorful mixed media work is simultaneously grounded in tradition and achieves expressive contemporary abstraction. His work reflects the commitment of Zen Mountain Gallery to provide the finest local contemporary and contemplative fine art.

Please join Zen Mountain Gallery for July Art Walk when Jerome artist Steve Gray will be demonstrating his Graphing Pendulum. This floor to ceiling pendulum is Steve’s unique creation which incorporates multiple pendulum movements into one larger construction and then is equipped to graph the movements of the pendulums creating mesmerizing works of art. Steve describes his pendulum saying “When the pendulums are set into motion there is a curiosity of what is
going to come. Simple pendulums have a predictable path, but when you
add two or three together the paths become unpredictable and the device
seems to have a mind of its own. When the pen drops to the paper and the
first lines begin to form I find that I can have feelings of frustration
or excitement that can morph into entirely different emotions as the
pendulum’s swing slows down and a drawing appears.
My intention is to create a way to graph frequencies of two or more
pendulums oscillating in time and space to create a visual harmony.”

Please join Zen Mountain Gallery for a glass of wine and the opportunity to experience this unique pendulum.
