You'll love the May 2015 issue of Southwest Art if:

  • You love impressionistic depictions of human relationships in their many forms, whether it is the dynamics of a larger group or the intimate moments of a solitary figure or couple.
  • You love expressions of the landscape colorfully distilled through the artist's emotional lens.
  • You love catching up with artists we have featured in the past to see what they're doing now.

In the May 2015 issue of Southwest Art we introduce you to landscape painter Marcia Burtt, whose impressions of the land and sea are interpreted on canvas over and over again, even in the same locations because, each time she visits a place, she says, it is different. We check in again with figurative painter Ron Hicks, whose depictions of intimate moments and human interaction continue to evolve as he explores artistic techniques. In the May issue we also bring you updates from 13 artists we've featured in past issues. Find out how their work and their careers have changed since they were featured in our pages and preview 18 auctions and art shows around the West.
