'Location' the theme for Clarkdale photo exhibit

Can't get away for a summer vacation or looking for a place to go?

Come to Clark Memorial Library in Clarkdale for a visual getaway to some of the local artists and photographers favorite vacation locations presented in the current Art in Public Places exhibit LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!

Clarkdale photographer Candy Gemmill likes "sand beneath [her] toes and the sound of the ocean" vacationing on the beaches of Mexico as seen in her large format photo of the "Arch" in Cabo San Lucas.

Isabel and John Erickson, Clarkdale hobby photographers, enjoy visiting National Parks. Photo collages of Joshua Tree N.P., Twentynine Palms, CA., Rocky Mountain N.P., Grand Lake and Estes Park, CO. and Arizona's own Grand Canyon N.P. exemplify desert and mountain scenery in all seasons for these favorite locations.

Clarkdale's Sallie Parke Cross just likes to travel! "Traveling is part of my life and it is a passion. I have been blessed to have had the opportunities to travel all around the world." Her interesting paintings Fruit Hat done in Honduras, Under the Siak River painted in Sumatra and Squeeze Box completed in Madrid, Spain reflect her travel passion and share interesting stories about these places she has visited.

Mary Liggitt, Clarkdale, and her fellow tapestry students from Verde Valley Weavers and Spinners, share some of their favorite places closer to home. Mary's colorful pieces include Wonderful Grand Canyon and a spot along The Columbia River while Carolyn Van Sant is inspired by the Red Rock Buttes in Monument Valley and Georgia O'Keefe's Northern New Mexico. Jane Hanson enjoys Cool Minnesota Winters with Pine Trees and Snowballs as well as Seagull Memories at Lake Superior.

Lynda Pierce shares My Path, a favorite meditation spot in the Verde Valley for peaceful reflection.

Carl Campio, Clarkdale, expresses his favorite locations among the butterflies in hand-tooled copper art.

A tribute to Clarkdale woodcarver Billy Rowland, recently deceased, includes an intricately carved carousel or merry-go-round and a large ferris wheel representing one of his childhood memories - the summer carnival. His pieces are on loan from the Rowland Family.

Interspersed with the art work are books available for check-out from the library about all of these favorite places and more.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION may be viewed at Clark Memorial Library until Aug. 28 during regular library hours: Monday-Thursday 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Friday, 8 a.m. to noon. The library, closed Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, is located at 39 N. Ninth Street in the Clarkdale Town Complex.
