Farraday Newsome will be in the upcoming exhibition The 7 Cs of Arizona at the Phoenix Airport Museum, Sky Harbor Airport, Phoenix, Arizona. The show’s title refers to the original five economic Cs of Arizona: Cotton, Copper, Citrus, Cattle, and Climate. The exhibition’s curators have added two more Cs: Cactus and Canyon. Farraday’s pieces will, quite logically, refer to the Citrus industry .


The show will be up October 4, 2014 through April 19, 2015. Farraday’s pieces will be in the Terminal 4 Gallery portion of the exhibition.

This high-fired sculpture is Jeff Reich’s fourth in his Allthorn series. It was commissioned by a collector on the East Coast and has now been installed on private grounds in New Jersey. Jeff continues to reference plants of the Sonoran desert with his brushed and scratched painterly glazed surfaces.

Farraday Newsome and Jeff Reich are included in the upcoming ceramics invitational exhibition 50 from 6: Contemporary Ceramic Art from Six Rocky Mountain States . It will open this fall at the Braithwaite Fine Arts Gallery, Southern Utah University, Cedar City, Utah.


Fifty ceramic artists from six western states were invited to participate. The show was curated by Southern Utah University’s Professor Susan Harris and Assistant Professor Russell Wrankle.


The exhibit will run September 25 to November 8, 2014. A catalog will be published.

CEDAR CITY – The depth and breadth of contemporary ceramics are vibrantly showcased when Southern Utah University’s Braithwaite Fine Arts Gallery presents “50 from 6: Contemporary Ceramic Art from Six Rocky Mountain States.” This remarkable exhibition is sponsored by The Friends of the Braithwaite Fine Arts Gallery and runs Sept. 25 through Nov. 8 at the gallery. The gallery’s fall hours are noon to 7 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday.

Admission is free, and the public is encouraged to attend. There will be a special “sneak peek” of the exhibition at 6 p.m. Sept. 24. The free event is hosted by The Friends of the Braithwaite Fine Arts Gallery and includes a reception with light refreshments.

Featuring ceramic art from some of the most acclaimed and respected artisans of the craft, “50 from 6” celebrates the rich tradition and history of the medium. Exhibition curator Susan Harris, SUU professor of art, said, “Fired clay objects hold one of the longest places in history of man-made artifacts: over 30,000 years. Their importance to human culture is indisputable. Artists selected for this exhibition reconfigure standing ceramic traditions in outstanding ways, bridging the past and the future through their work. Included art works illustrate diverse ceramic traditions, from ornate sculpture to utilitarian tableware, with influences from across the world and the historical past.”

Six states included in this exhibition are: Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Idaho and Montana. With almost 10 years since the last regional ceramics exhibition in Utah, this is a unique opportunity for our community to view cutting-edge contemporary work. “50 from 6” cohesively demonstrates the limitless potential of clay through an engaging survey of this humble, ubiquitous and transmutable material.

During the exhibition’s run there will be a series of related events, including an artist’s lecture, soup bowl sale at the gallery, an art hike exploring clay in our region and more. For information about these events, please visit suu.edu/pva/artgallery.

Made possible by major funding from The Friends of the Braithwaite Fine Arts Gallery, additional sponsors include the Utah Division of Arts & Museums, Rainbow Sign & Banner and the Cedar City-Brian Head Tourism Bureau.

For more information about the exhibitions at the Braithwaite Fine Arts Gallery, please call (435) 586-5432, or visit suu.edu/pva/artgallery.

The 7C’s of Arizona
Copper • Cattle • Cotton • Citrus • Climate • Cactus • Canyons
Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport


Arizona may not have seaside beaches but it does have seven C’s.

Depicted on the state seal, the original “five C’s”, copper, cattle, cotton, citrus and climate represent the forces that drove Arizona’s economy as well as defined our state character. Over time Arizonans have added two more C’s, cactus and canyons, both important to tourism and our unique regional identity.

Natural wonders, pleasant weather, agriculture, ranching and mining have all played a role in the state’s history and economy. These assets have not only assisted in bringing residents and tourists alike to the state but also continue to provide inspiration, materials and subject matter for artists who live and visit here.

Drawing from this traditional heritage, these artists have depicted, used or referenced one of the C’s in their art. Enjoy a look into Arizona’s unique character through contemporary artworks that explore the riches of our state.

Have an art adventure and travel the 7C’s of Arizona.

Exhibition at two locations in Terminal 4 on Level 3

  1. Eight display cases on the east end and west end, August 23, 2014 - February 15, 2015

  2. Gallery, on the south side, center, October 4, 2014 - April 19, 2015

It’s time to plant for the eagerly awaited fall and winter season here in the hot desert. Our winter crops include leafy greens, root vegetables, and peas. Since the soil is still warm now (our daily temperatures are still in the 100’s) there are a lot of active soil creatures who would like nothing more than to take the seeds (i.e.the ants) or devour the tender new seedlings (sowbugs in particular). To ward off these marauders we plant (or set out our germinated seedlings) in either cardboard tubes sections or plastic cups with their bottoms removed.

The seeds sprouting in the photos are icicle radishes on the left and yellow snow peas (against a trellis) on the right.

Photo above left: When we bought our house twelve years ago we soon realized that it was in the  downslope path of natural rainfall drainage. To prevent our home from flooding, we had truckloads of dirt removed from the front yard to create a naturalistically sculpted retention basin for heavy rains, and then we landscaped it with native plants. When we had historic, record-breaking rains in September the basin worked perfectly, our front yard becoming an ephemeral lake and our house dry. Our annual rainfall here in the low Sonoran desert is around 7.5”.  In one torrential eight-hour stretch we received 4.25”!

Right: We’re already seeing the results: lush, heavy flowering of the desert perennials and the greening of the entire landscape. This white beauty is White Cloud, a Leucophyllum frutescens cultivar.

Heavy flowering since the big rains, from left to right: white Littleleaf Cordia (Cordia parvifolia), orange Superstition Mallow (Abutilon palmeri), and violet Texas Ranger (Leucophyllum frutescens).

Farraday has been clomping around in a post-op boot since having a torn and scarred plantar fascia. The injury did not heal on its own despite stretching, icing, and months of physical therapy. It became chronic and has kept her from running, or even walking easily, since last November.


The procedure she opted for is called Tenex Health. It is based on technology developed in collaboration with the Mayo Clinic that combines ultrasound imaging (for visualization during the procedure) with ultrasonic ablation that destroys unhealthy tissue without hurting healthy tissue. Not only does the procedure destroy the unhealthy, pain-causing tissue (scar tissue), it vacuums it out as well. For more information go to http://tenexhealth.com


So far Farraday’s recovery is going very well. Patience is the name of the game at this point with just a few weeks of healing to go.


And yes, that’s Skye to the left looking through the door to the garden!
