"Life Time" A retrospective solo show of encaustic works by Art Levy November 16 to December 21

Opening reception on Friday, November 16th from 6:30 to 9:30pm.

Art Levy found a passion for art early on, majoring in art and painting as an undergraduate. He then attended the prestigious Georgetown University Medical School and spent the next 25 years as a cardiovascular surgeon.  After retiring from the rigors of a busy, nationally-known cardiovascular practice, Dr. Levy returned to art. He started painting with acrylics and oils, adding paste, cement, and various acrylic substrates to create texture.  However, he found a home when he discovered and fell in love with encaustic processes. He has spent the last 18 years developing his voice and style. 

 Encaustic dates back to Cleopatra (69-30 BCE) after the Roman Empire claimed Egypt, they introduced funerary portraits using wax paintings on thin wooden panels.  The word “encaustic comes from the Greek “encaustikos” meaning “to heat” or “burn.” Using heat at every stage, the encaustic medium consists of beeswax plus resin, and when pigment is added it becomes encaustic paint. 

  Throughout his career as an artist, Dr. Levy has continued to be fascinated by science – biology, physics, physiology – and he has created series on topics such as cell physiology and the Big Bang.  His artwork has also explored the origins of language and the passage of time.

 Dr. Levy has shown at numerous Arizona galleries and lives in Scottsdale..  “Life Time” will show until December 21. Please call or email us for an appointment to visit!

“Glorious Vulnerability” Paintings by Amber Linkey

September/October 2018


Amber Linkey is a talented self-taught artist who has had numerous shows. After spending some time drawing realistic,  traditional images, Linkey discovered the freedom of abstract expressionism.  She discovered the joy of creating whatever she wanted to on the canvas. She wants her work to be an inspiration for those who see it — a reminder to be comfortable with vulnerability. Linkey says, “I think art and vulnerability need each other to exist, and I also think that those are two things that make humans-human. The ability to create and to aspire to more than survival is one intangible beauty about humans that I want to capture and use to connect people, or spark something in them.”

The Walter Project is an innovative community of artists, entertainers, makers, and visionaries who come together to form various creative ventures such as The Walter Art Gallery, Walter Productions, The Walter Hive, Walter Yoga, and The Station (the Walter brewery). Known for their art cars such as Walter the Bus, Big Red, and Kalliope, the purpose of this community is to share joy and spark creativity through unique experiences.
