Matagi Sorensen Jewelry


Matagi Sorensen has been creating objects of art since he was a child. Although living primarily in the high desert of the Verde Valley in Arizona, his family spent time sporadically in the Phoenix area, and making arts provided a creative refuge as well as a way to contribute to the family’s income. With the realization that he wanted to pursue a career as a jewelry designer and craftsman, Matagi attended Northern Arizona University where he studied metalsmithing and jewelry. He earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 2011.  Upon graduation, Matagi’s career has flourished with collectors and shows around the country. His contemporary style, which merges an urban sensibility with natural elements, reflects the two worlds he has moved through since his youth. Matagi is a member of the Yavapai Apache Nation and currently lives and works in Phoenix.

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.
