Happy Change of Venue Friday. Looking for something to do this weekend? Why not enjoy an art exhibit?

Why is this on my mind? The Arizona Attorney Magazine arts submissions were due recently, so we’ve been up to our elbows in art of all kinds. So that may be why I was especially susceptible when I heard from a lawyer that her one-woman show was opening on January 21. The opening reception was a blast.

Dair Deckert is quite the talent, and getting a solo show at the Eric Fischl Gallery at Phoenix College is a pretty nice coup.

When I dropped by the reception, the room was packed with well-wishers and art lovers. I had seen a thumbnail image of one of Dair’s pieces, but that never does it justice. The large canvases are compelling and vibrant.

few photos of the event are at the end of this post.

Dair’s art will be displayed until January 30. The gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday. More information is at the gallery’s website.

And because you will never in a million years be able to locate the gorgeous gallery on that web page, I’ve posted in a map below. (Click to make it larger.)
