4th Friday Prescott Art Walk
“Pictographs on Sandstone” features Acrylic on Sandstone art by artist John Flinn.
After an illustration and graphic artist’s career, John Flinn discovered that his return to Arizona reawakened an interest in the history of the Southwest and his love for the lonesome and ancient landscapes. John says, “I’m too old and lame in the left foot to hike to the places that draw me. Too late in Time to pick up artifacts and treasures among the ruins. A few years ago, a light switched itself on in my head, and I got the idea to draw those places to me instead of my hiking to them, so I started crafting my own shards of an imagined past inspired by the real one. Sandstone is now my canvas and I traded the oils for acrylics: Pictographs I call them.”
A reception for the artist will be on Prescott’s 4th Friday Art Walk (August 23rd) from 5-8 pm, at the Arts Prescott Cooperative Gallery.
Live music will be provided, and snacks and refreshments will be served. Show runs August 23 – September 25. Open Daily 10 am – 6 pm.
