On The Edge Gallery
The temperatures are falling, and the leaves are falling — why not ‘fall for the arts’ at On The Edge Gallery?!  Enjoy autumn and all it has to offer during the Fall for the Arts ArtWalk on Thursday evening, November 12th.  On The Edge Gallery is open from 10 AM to 9 PM on Thursday, with Fall for the Arts ArtWalk festivities beginning at 6 PM.  During the “Fall For the Arts” ArtWalk, On The Edge Gallery has a fabulous lineup of Fall Featured Artists who will be on hand to either demonstrate or discuss how they create their artwork.
Julie Carpenter-Boardman, Printmaker, Painter, and Ceramic Artist
Julie lives in Phoenix, Arizona with her family that includes a husband, two children, and nine pets. Julie has an MFA in Printmaking and Drawing, and a BFA in ceramics.  She has taught printmaking and various other courses at the university level, including Minnesota State University, Moorhead, Concordia University, Rogers State University, Tulsa Community College and the Maricopa Community College system. Additionally, Julie has taught various art workshops, managed a painting studio for gifted high-school students, and participated in teaching children art in impoverished school districts, as part of a large grant through the Oklahoma Arts and Humanities Council. Julie taught elementary school art in the Phoenix area for one year and managed a summer children’s workshop teaching painting, drawing, and ceramics in Scottsdale, AZ. Julie’s current works include monotypes, mixed media pieces, paintings, functional ceramics, and ceramic sculptural works.  Julie’s work has been displayed at various galleries and art shows in the United States, and she has displayed her work abroad.
Catherine Sickafoose, Watercolor
Catherine was born and raised in Toronto, Canada, but has lived most of her adult life in Arizona.  Art has always been an important part of Catherine’s life, but raising a family came first, with a career as a Registered Nurse.  In one of those defining moments, transparent watercolors captured Catherine’s heart, and she decided to pursue her dream of becoming an artist.   Catherine’s work has been shown in more than fifty juried shows and twenty solo shows. Painting from her own photographs or still life compositions, Catherine works in either her Flagstaff or Phoenix , Arizona studios.  “By observing the details in everyday surroundings, I find a wealth of ideas; from the smallest of sweet peas on my garden trellis to the rhythm of color across the Arizona landscapes,” states Catherine.  “I feel very blessed to be able to share myself with others through my art.”
Gabriel Salcido, Metal
“In the stillness . . . that is where inspiration lives. Working with metal is second nature for me,” says Gabriel. “Simple lines and basic shapes along with a collage of cultural influences define the philosophy of my work. The Southwest, simultaneously delicate and bold in light and color, is the stuff I see daily. The more you create the wider your imagination expands. Light and the illusion of light, especially in the fall, directly compels my artistic mind. Observing the world in motion creates the sparks my imagination needs to flow. It is hard to say if you choose metal or if the metal chooses you . . . it is a lifelong relationship.”
