The Galleria at the YW

The Unusual Universe of Liz Vaughn

Tucson-based artist, Liz Vaughn, has created a remarkable, hope-filled show for the Galleria at the YWCA. Join us for the opening of this show on November 12, 2014, 6-8 PM. Meet the artist. Light refreshments. Live music by Jimmy Carr & the Coronets.

Liz describes her work saying, "20th century artist Amedeo Modigliani has often been a great inspiration to me; his use of elongation of the human form is absolutely intoxicating. My figure studies often mix the inspiration of Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele with contemporary artists. To separate the figure from worldliness and float her in a space of timeless light represent ultimate perfection in my world. My subject matter often reflects the nuances of daily life and humor that catch us unaware, or, more simply stated, the things that make us laugh out loud."

Liz's work will be on display in the Galleria through the end of the year. Hours are Monday through Friday 9-5. Free.

More than just Tucson’s newest venue for The Arts

The YW in Southern Arizona has been an incubator for change for almost 100 years. We connect and empower change agents who have the vision and desire to make a difference in their own lives and in the public square. The Galleria at the YW is a key part of the community happening here. It is a great new downtown venue for art. But it is more than that. The artists we are inviting into The Galleria are doing something important. Their work is making us think. It’s giving us something to talk about, making us wonder, sometimes making us angry and sometimes making us laugh, but always making us hope. These artists are mostly women, but not always. They are exploring themes that connect to our mission of eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. They give us a reason to gather. And you just never know what might happen after that.
