Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

At least that's what the Grand Canyon state looks like through the eyes of the 16 member artists at Galeria de los Muertos. In its latest collaborative themed-exhibit, "Arizona," starting Saturday at 6 p.m., these artists portray show just how multi-faceted (and weird) it is to live here.

"This is an exhibit about the state we call home, in all its glory and failure," says Marco Turrubiartes, president of the gallery. "Some of us are natives, some transplants, and some are just moving through. But together, we make up the essence of this place and it is our experiences, ideas, and actions which will determine its future."

​Participating artists include El Vaquero Muerto, Sir Thomas M. Deadstuff, Tommy Pemberton, Jenny Fontana, Maynard Breese, I Must Be Dead, Aleta Welling, Davemarkart, Darling Nikki, Banding Hendrix, Brian Harrison, Lindsey Bessanson, Jesse Perry, Kyna Tek, Jon Nyberg, and Jenice Grimes.

All original works (which will also include art not intended for this exhibit) are available for purchase for $10 to $800.

The "Arizona" exhibit is free and opens on Saturday, July 30 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. and runs until August 16. Some art is mature, but all ages are invited.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
