West Valley Art Museum

CURRENT EXHIBIT:

Native American Contemporary Prints
September 23 - November 21, 2019

Currently on view in the West Valley Art Museum Gallery on the first floor of Peoria City Hall is a special exhibit of more than 40 prints by notable contemporary Native American Artists. These fascinating art works include lithographs, paintings, drawings, mixed media, etchings, and other techniques by artists such as Harrison Begay, Robert Redbird Sr., Amado Pena and Norma Andraud to name only a few represented. You will delight in not only the fine quality of the works but in many instances, the matting and framing used to present each artwork.

The exhibit features artists with heritage in more than a dozen Native American tribes across our vast land. Also shown are prints by Paul Kuo from Japan and Olaf Wieghorst of Denmark who became immersed in the cultures and traditions throughout their careers to also work in presenting Native American themes.

The exhibit continues on view through November 21, 2019. We encourage you to stop by soon to enjoy this remarkable series of outstanding Native American art.

Iron Key Studio Artist Exhibit featuring Melissa Zimmer & Drew Siciliano
September 9, 2019 - October 28, 2019

Melissa Zimmer has been involved with the arts for more than 20 years, and is an award-winning artist in various mediums ranging from tattoo to paint. She has created public art throughout the Valley, including Old Town where she recently created the intersection painting outside Iron Key Studio and contributed to the Peoria Community Planter Project.

Drew Siciliano is local artist transplanted from the East Coast. His artwork is heavily influenced by classically-animated films and comic book artists such as Ray Harryhausen and Frank Frazetta with a twist from Tim Bur-ton, giving way to his illustrative-realism. A 2005 graduate from the Art Institute of Phoenix with a Bachelor in Media Arts and Animation, he now uses his talent to create art in various forms and mediums.
