Tumamocflame4 My friend Stu Jenks has a beautiful exhibition running at the grand old Hotel Congress in Tucson. Here's the info:

Nine Prayers: Photographs of Stu Jenks

The Hotel Congress Lobby
311 E. Congress, Tucson, AZ
July 21st - September 13th, 2008
Artist's Reception: Wednesday, August 20th, 2008, 6 - 8 p.m.

"Beginning July 21st, Stu Jenks will be displaying what he calls 'A small retrospective of large photographs' from the past eleven years. Each of the nine photographs has a personal prayer associated with it, be it the hopeful 'I pray we have a good Christmas' to the humorous 'I pray that bull doesn't get mad at me, once he finds out I don't have any food.'

"Most of the images are printed using the revolutionary Roland D'Vinci pigment printer, which give amazingly deep blacks and brillantly vibrant colors. Jenks' work ranges from mysterious nocturnal images of twinkling hoops and flaming spirals in desert and forested locales, to action photographs of Tucson Roller Derby women and of the circus troupe Flam Chen. The show is curated by David Aguirre of Dinnerware Artspace in Tucson."
