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.

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.
