Where: Shemer Art Center, Phoenix AZ  http://www.shemerartcenter.org


The Shemer Art Center and Museum is an art education facility and gallery in the Arcadia district of Phoenix. It was founded in 1984 by Martha Shemer, who purchased a Mission-style house and three acres not only to preserve the property but to donate it to the City of Phoenix to be used for art education. Budget constraints nearly closed the center in 2010, but citizens founded the Shemer Art Center and Museum Association to help manage and preserve the facility.

Back in Arizona, we have fruit ripening in our garden. It is truly impressive that these plants can produce in the summer heat of the low Sonoran Desert! 

Left to right: Mid-Pride peaches, jalapeno peppers, and Golden Dorsett apples.

Our peach tree and Texas Blue Giant fig tree are growing together, branches intertwined. We think they enjoy each other’s shade this time of year!

Reflections of Arizona, Shemer Art Center

Malaga is the major seaport of Andalucia in southern Spain. A large, double-walled fortress was built on the hill overlooking the bay in the early 11th century when this region was part of Islamic Spain. The walled fortress, the Alcazaba, was a military structure that housed a palace. These photos show one of the old fortress towers and a glimpse into one of the beautifully maintained palace gardens.

The upper buildings of  the Alcazaba house a small archaeological museum showcasing Malaga’s past. Since ceramics lasts through the ages, it often comprises the majority of the historical record at an archaeology site. It was nice to see several displays of recovered ceramic objects along with nicely illustrated explanatory posters about the area’s rich ceramic history.

From Malaga we took a bus along the Costa del Sol to Nerja, a town plagued by pirate raids in centuries past but now a charming Mediterranean seaside destination. We treated ourselves to a few days of beach lazing and small town exploration. Many of the streets are cobbled with beautifully designed black and white stone mosaic.

Here is a view of the Mediterranean Sea from the front plaza of our hotel, which was perched up on a seacliff protrusion called “The Balcony of Europe”.

Ah, Jeff enjoying seaside relaxation at its best!

Our last stay in Spain was in Toledo, just forty-five minutes by train south of Madrid. This hilltop city was the capital of Spain until 1561  when King Phillip II moved Spain’s capital to Madrid. This is the front of Toledo’s impressive cathedral, built from 1296 to 1495.

Adjoining the cathedral are the monks’ quarters, the central courtyard garden surrounded by vaulted hallways and numerous painted murals.

The enormous, elaborate High Altar of the Toledo Cathedral is carved from wood and covered in real gold.        

The painter El Greco made his home in Toledo. The Toledo Cathedral is known for its large holdings of his work. A total of 19     El Greco paintings hang in the cathedral’s dedicated gallery, photo above.

With its pointed, vaulted arches and large windows, the Toledo Cathedral is predominantly Gothic. However, since it took over two hundred years to build, there are elements of other architectural styles such as Renaissance and Baroque.

Toledo was our last stay in Spain and we treated ourselves to a couple of nights in Spanish parador, inns which are converted historic buildings such as castles or monasteries. This one was  the Hacienda del Cardenal. It was once a 17th century cardinal’s palace. For us, it was a perfect place for amarettos by moonlight to savor the final evenings of a wonderful trip.

Summer fruit harvests in the desert: We usually pick a basket or so every morning during coffee this time of year since it is getting so hot any later in the day.
