Viewpoints: A Botanical Twist
by Gail Roberts & Stevie Mack
Viewpoints: A Botanical Twist presents the work of local artists Gail Roberts and Stevie Mack. Using the theme “botanicals”, the artists chose to express their ideas with unique and innovative imagery. Gail’s viewpoint explores botanicals through still life. Her stylized flowers and vases are set in interior spaces that create the context for each piece.
Stevie’s works are set in outdoor spaces where the abstract botanicals float freely in space or within and throughout the landscape. Both artists invite you to explore and enjoy their unique twist on the theme. Gail Roberts is known for her functional ceramics, sculptural Raku, mosaic art, and large-scale commissioned murals for public venues. Her work can be seen here at the Tucson Botanical Gardens, along with Reid Park Zoo, Brandi Fenton Memorial Park, and Saguaro National Monument East, to name a few.
Stevie Mack is a contemporary abstract painter in Tucson, Arizona. She received her BA in Fine Arts and a BS in Education at the University of Cincinnati and a master’s degree in Art Education from UA. Know throughout the country for her publishing company, Stevie produced award-winning art education videos and curriculum. She co-authored two books on the Days of the Dead, and led an art traveling program in the US, Mexico, and Guatemala.
