Picture People

Art does not exist in a vacuum, and the members and staff at Gilbert gallery and studio space Art Intersection are well aware. For creative types to thrive, they need a community. That's why the artistic outpost has assembled a group of artists, bringing them together through its membership program in hopes of fostering talent, co-working, and creating compelling pieces. Though photography is the main focus of the gallery, its second annual group show "No Strangers" gets into the varietal spirit with works in its standby medium along with those in fibers, printmaking, and mixed-media.

Get acquainted with William Jenkins' stark portrait Rosie or Mark Lipcyznski's Wings, a black-and-white sky shot. The array of styles and sights just might inspire creativity in you, too.

The exhibition is on view at 207 North Gilbert Road through Friday, August 31. Hours Thursday, August 30, are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission is free. Visit or call 480-361-1118.

Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Starts: Aug. 3. Continues through Aug. 31, 2013
