Going Greek

Three ASU art professors have banded together to explore the idea that complexity can exist within what appears to be simplicity. For inspiration printmaker Mary Hood, sculptor Mary Neubauer, and painter-drawer Janice Pittsley look to utopia -- specifically Greece's Arcadia, a region historically reknowned for its paradisiacal landscape and its inhabitants' simple way of life. With their group exhibition, "Even in Arcadia," the artists present works in a variety of media, wading through arcadia's ancient mysteries.

The show is on view through Sunday, September 29, at ASU's Night Gallery at Tempe Marketplace, 2000 East Rio Salado Parkway. Hours Tuesday, September 24, are 6 to 9 p.m. It's free and open to the public. Donations are welcome. Visit

Tuesdays-Sundays, 6-9 p.m. Starts: Sept. 6. Continues through Sept. 29, 2013
