B, in north Scottsdale. A free artist reception will take place at the gallery from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Sat., Jan. 10.

Both artists spent their professional careers in the visual art world and they embrace the creative, imaginative thinking process with great joy. Mary LaRue Wells exhibited in galleries in Washington D.C. and New York City.  Sue Avery Lewis was a career art educator at the high school and college levels with galleries in Iowa and Colorado.

Mary’s work involves bizarre, surrealistic narratives.  One collection involves playing cards which can hang upside up or upside down – each with its own twist. 

All of Sue’s pieces will be variations of her Vehicles of Inquiry series.  The public is invited to metaphorically climb aboard the fantastical whirligigs and ponder answers to the questions asked by each, such as “What drives you to the edge?” or “When do you depart from the path of commonsense?”
