GOODYEAR, ARIZ. (Feb. 20, 2009) –  Meet the “Art in Civic Spaces” artists whose works are currently on display in Goodyear during a special reception from 4:30 to 6 p.m. on Thursday, February 26 in Goodyear City Hall, 190 N. Litchfield Rd. Featured artists Nancy Christy-Moore, Jim Witkowski of Goodyear, and Christine Evola will be on hand to discuss their work.

 

Nancy Christy-Moore of Glendale has exhibited her work internationally. She attended Columbia College, the American Academy of Art in Chicago, and Art Center College of Design in Los Angles. She teaches various forms of watermedia and for this exhibition she is exhibiting abstracted equine and floral paintings on the second floor of City Hall.

 

Jim Witkowski’s brilliantly colored landscape photographs of such Western sites as the Canyonlands and Horseshoe Bend are on display on the first level of City Hall. The Goodyear resident attended Pasadena City College, Art Center of College of Design, and Phoenix College.

 

Arizona State University fine arts student Christine Evola works with several forms of sculpture including foundry, neon, wood and fiber. The artist uses fleece and burlap to create voluminous, suspended pieces. She has exhibited her work at First Studio Gallery and the Icehouse Gallery in Phoenix, and the Step Gallery in Tempe.

 

The “Art in Civic Spaces” rotating exhibition program enhances City spaces and gives artists opportunities to show their work in a public venue. This event is sponsored by the Arts and Culture Division of Community Services.
