Colors of Cabo Pulmo, Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum:
Orioles & Verdin on Aloe Vera by Andrew Denman

Colors of Cabo Pulmo is part of a Desert Museum Art Institute Department project titled Project Resurgence. The project documents and celebrates the remarkable work of communities in Baja California and Sonora who work to conserve and restore biodiversity of the Sonoran Desert. The projects specifically showcase original fine art created by selected research artists in residence. The artwork created for Colors of Cabo Pulmo was inspired by the protected marine park’s success story, it’s surrounding desert landscape, and the community’s natural history conservation efforts. The goal of Colors of Cabo Pulmo is to create a memorable narrative that will move people to be more conservation minded and aims to inspire the world to follow in the footsteps of Cabo Pulmo residents. Highlights of the exhibition showcase the processes and techniques of three of the core research artists Andrew Denman, Rachel Ivanyi and Martha Thompson. Other artists and photographers in this exhibition will include David Kitler, Glenn Thompson, and Jake Bryant.

The Impasto Approach with Andrew Denman Artist Workshop, Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum:
Denman Teaching at ASDM

Andrew Denman is back by popular demand for his third ASDM workshop. This time, get ready to explore an approach to painting you will learn nowhere else. You will learn how to employ a series of thick, impasto underpaintings, cover over with many layers of gesso, and then sand down to reveal astonishing textures, patterns, and colors, which can either stand on their own or provide brilliant underlayment for natural textures like fur, feathers, bark, rocks, and grass. Through a series of easy to follow exercises, you will have all the tools necessary to practice or even master this technique to create a variety of effects in any genre or subject of painting, not just wildlife. If you want to try something entirely new, this is your workshop! It's a greqt value at just $230 for three intensive days of hands-on instruction. Some materials are included.

Puma: Past & Present, Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum:
Cougar Cub Drawing by Andrew Denman

 Andrew is excited to be taking part in "Puma: Past & Present" in conjunction with the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum's 65th Anniversary this September.  Since the museum's first mountain lion arrived in 1953, cougars have been a favorite animal of ASDM visitors.  Andrew Denman painted "Cougar Descending a Staircase" from the museum's current big cat ambassador, Cruz, in 2016.  The piece sold almost immediately, but collector, friend, and fellow artist Michelle Friend has generously agreed to loan the painting for the exhibit.  It will hang alongside a selection of juried work by other talented artists including Denman's partner, Guy Combes.  Denman will also have a brand new drawing in the show, "The Troublemaker" (detail at left)featuring cougar cub Sam, a fledgling wildlife ambassador with the artist's friends at Project Survival's Cat Haven in the Sierra Foothills.
