The annual Arcosanti Resident Art Show opened on Saturday with some interesting things from many artists living here at Arcosanti, doing the current workshop or alum. Snacks were served to residents and visitors.
The show can be viewed in the Arcosanti Cafe daily from 9 am to 5 pm and will run until April 1. 2009.
Several regulars put their art up for display including:
Cliff Hersted heads community relations at Arcosanti and he also works in the foundry. On his spare time he is a sculptor who works with stone, metal and wood.
Larry Meagher is a ceramist who formerly worked and lived at Arcosanti working as construction manager, then in the ceramics department. He now does ceramic work near his home in Jerome.
Erin Jeffries is our Public Relations person who also does small articles of clothing.
Ron Chandler’s contribution is unique. Ron is our resident science fiction fan who has crafted several websites that talk about his futuristic fantasies (including starfighter command). He also is known as a metal sculptor of Arcologies putting together pieces of metal to make large rustic artifacts that dot the site
