In Review: Favorite Art Exhibitions of 2011

​As we bid farewell to the year and look ahead to 2012, Jackalope Ranch contributors will bring you some greatest hits from 2011. Today we're taking a look back at a few local art happenings that caused a stir in the scene ... 

10. "Seeing is Believing: Rebecca Campbell and Angela Ellsworth" at Phoenix Art Museum: 
 Mitt Romney has nothing on Campbell and Ellsworth when it comes to mining the mother lode of being raised Mormon, as these two women so artfully do. Finally, PAM is featuring local artists - took it long enough. This show's running until January 22, 2012, so there's still time to wander through the wonderland of Mormonism's personal stamp on Campbell and Ellsworth's creative psyches.
