Doug Andrews

 

Douglas Edward Andrews specializes in evocative images of the Southwest, particularly the Sedona area. Doug’s love of nature is reflected in his distinctive photographs and paintings of Sedona icons such as Red Rock Crossing, Upper Red Rock Loop, Slide Rock State Park and famous rock formations including Coffee Pot. Doug captures the natural beauty of these locations at their finest hour, incorporating rare cloud formations, a perfect shot of the rising moon or still waters that reflect clear blue skies.

Doug’s photographs are especially stunning when infused at a very high heat on aluminum. These metal prints are very easy to clean and are durable enough to display outdoors on a patio.

Doug’s lifelong appreciation for the beauty of nature was fostered by his youth in the Allegheny Mountains. Doug holds both Art Education and Fine Arts Degrees from Edinboro University. Doug taught art for three years before moving to Arizona to further his formal art education, but soon decided to devote full time to creative expression. Doug has been a resident of Sedona since 1978. He is the retired owner of The Point of Sedona Gallery, which he operated for over 30 years, most recently in Tlaquepaque.

Zen Mountain Gallery is pleased to represent Doug as he continues his journey of creative expression depicting the mystique and power of the colors of the Southwest.

Zen Mountain Gallery will be featuring fine art ceramicist Hans Miles as featured artist for April Art Walk.

Hans Miles was raised in Prescott, Arizona in a family of artists, and has been creating, and destroying, since day one. Fascinated with the mechanical, the natural design and deconstruction, the unknown and the novelty, Hans brings a very special and highly idiosyncratic style to every facet of his expression.

These strong reverberations of style can be found in his approach to the ceramic medium. From chaotically executed sculptures imbued with moments of intensity and marks of insanity, to his highly controlled and meticulously planned atmospheric firings: this artist strives to relay an evocative narrative with each and every piece. As the lead lab technician at ASU Hans has developed many different fringing styles and glaze recipes completely unique to himself, but is far from ending his search into the many pockets of forgotten knowledge within the ceramic arts.

His current works intend to explore even deeper the essence and science of atmospheric firing, a process invented in Europe in the 14th century and involving the introduction of volatile elements like sodium, potassium and calcium into the kiln at a temperature exceeding 2300 degrees Fahrenheit. This type of firing can result in immeasurable chemical reactions inside the kiln like color changes, crystal growth, glass deposits and a little understood process known as ‘flashing’. Sprinkled into these works are moments of quiet inspiration, loud bursts of recklessness and a subtle charm that makes his work so accessible and interesting.

Please Join Zen Mountain gallery for wine and hors d’oeuvres as we welcome Hans Miles to the gallery for a demonstration and extensive selection of his work.
