Artists I discovered in Arizona

We got home yesterday from our holiday in Arizona, USA and I must say it was deliciously sunny, hot, dry and relaxing! We hiked up a mountain, toured the Biosphere2, and saw "Da Vinci - The Genius" exhibit at the Arizona Science Center. And of course, we also saw some great art! Here are a few artists that really caught my eye. I saw their work at the Desert Caballeros Western Museum in Wickenburg.
"Honest Day" by Maura Allan. This is not the piece I saw but I couldn't find an online image of the painting I saw. This paintings is from another gallery that represents her, Gallery Mar.
"Night Light" by Martha Pettigrew
Amy Ringholz I didn't see this piece but one that is similar. I couldn't find the one I saw on her website.
There were some stunning photographic pieces printed on aluminum that I was quite taken with. Especially the piece "Grace" by Bev Pettit.
Last but certainly not least I came across Andrew Carson's pieces at the Tempe Arts Festival. If I had a spare 10 grand I would snatch one of these up in a second. They would look fabulous on our yard. I saw photos of his sculptures in various parks and I must say they are out-of-this-world!
