Spring Forward

If you haven’t heard, Mesa is so hot right now. Not because of the second edition of the sexy Mormon calendar (though that is pretty freaking hot), but on account of a bustling Main Street Mesa art scene anchored by Mesa Contemporary Arts, who will soon unveil its Spring Exhibitions at the beautiful gallery space located at 1 East Main Street.

The shows include “Station Identification”, featuring Teresa Sullivan’s crazy-cool tapestries of beads, jewelry, and sculpture; Paul Nicklen’s amazing National Geographic-schooled shutterbug chops in “Polar Obsession”; the “Picturing Maricopa” community image project that gives a behind-the-scenes look at local nonprofit organizations; and the “31st Annual Contemporary Crafts” exhibition showcasing all sorts of craft media(such as ceramics, fiber art, metals, papermaking, and glass) by 42 American artists.
