Farraday Newsome and Jeff Reich currently have a two-person exhibition at The Manheim Gallery & ARC Contemporary Fine Art in Cottonwood, Arizona. https://www.facebook.com/ARCCFA/?fref=ts


The gallery is described by Erika Ayn Finch in her December 2016 Sedona Monthly article:

Inside a Cottonwood building that was designed by a student of Frank Lloyd Wright to be a dentist’s office in the 1950s, two art lovers have merged their galleries in what is one of the best showcases of contemporary art in the Verde Valley. Patt Manheim, who opened The Manheim Gallery in 2006, and artist Robert Siracusa, who has owned three galleries in the area including, most recently, ARC Contemporary Fine Art, sit side by side in one of the gallery’s brightly lit rooms. “We both have longevity in the region, so we have a local following,” says Robert. “People know what they are going to get from us...

What those visitors are going to get are paintings that are not your typical red rock landscapes and figurative ceramics that are a far cry from practical pottery...Patt and Robert represent about 20 artists. Many of them are from Arizona while others reside in far-off places like Poland and Tel Aviv. “We want this to be an art gallery that doesn’t just exhibit and sell art but educates and presents the art like a museum,” says Robert, who is a sculptor, special-effects makeup artist and a character and concept designer in addition to being a gallery owner. “We’re always thinking about content and what the art means in a broader sense, even to people who’ve never been in the gallery.”

Artist statement for Day and Night:

The white teapot embodies day and clarity. The black teapot embodies the more mysterious realm of night. These two opposing forms are part of a series of white and black works that I have been making for a number of years that examine the duality of our emotional experience and understanding of life. I am interested in Carl Jung’s assertion that Man’s life consists of a complex of inexorable opposites - day and night, birth and death, happiness and misery, good and evil. These ideas cannot exist without each other, they are integral parts of a whole.

We love visiting nearby Usery Mountain Regional Park, especially this time of year when winter storms are cruising through and the desert is cool and fresh. Jeff is running with our dog Skye, a German Shorthair Pointer rescue dog from Utah’s Perfect Pointers http://www.utahsperfectpointers.org
