We are pleased to announce a new exhibit called Through Our Eyes. In March of 2016, ArtWorks artists presented the exhibition at the University of Arizona Museum of Art and we are now fortunate to showcase them as well. The twenty-six artists featured in the upcoming show are adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities who took personalized tours and created original pieces inspired by the Arizona Museum of Art’s collection.
Please join us in celebrating :

August, although, busy has been a great month for us! We got so much exposure and wonderful press coverage on us. The Road Ahead receptions (public and members only) were great. We snapped some pictures of the event. Check it out!
Our next exhibit is quite out of this world!
Our artists have examined and explored the universe, and encountered aliens in their own ways. For our closing reception, we will be collaborating with local Flagstaff artist Frederica Hall in a special movement experience.
We hope you all can check it out!
We were blessed to have Charlie Moran, a journalism student at NAU and a reporter for NAZ Today, visit our gallery during the Autistic Expressions Show. He did an interview with Ms. Sharin Jonas, and here we have the clip that was aired on NAZ Today. We are honored that Sharin was able to get this exposure, and hope that she, and the Hozhoni Art Program as a whole, continues to move more and more into the public light.
Hozhoni has been fortunate to pair with Late for the Train on a coffee collaboration. For every bag of Hozhoni Blend sold during the month of April, Hozhoni will receive a $2.00 donation. The coffee goes on sale April 1st at all three Late for the Train locations at the price of $14.50/lb. Please help us spread the word!
In addition to selling bags of coffee for the month of April, we will also be adorning the walls of the downtown Late for the Train cafe with art from our artists. In celebration of Autism Awareness month, and the Light It Up Blue campaign by Autism Speaks, the artwork showcased here is produced by Hozhoni artists with ASD, Autism Spectrum Disorder. The artists featured are Tammy Smith, Krissi Schott, Richard Rapley, Sharin Jonas, and Amber Ensley.
April is right around the corner, and with April being Autism Awareness Month, its about time for a new exhibit showing off some unique talent from our art program.
From March 21st until April 29th, the Hozhoni Art Gallery will be presenting “Autistic Expressions with Sharin Jonas”. This one-woman exhibit features selected visual and poetic works centered around the concept of major emotions and the part they play in the life our Ms. Jonas.
The opening reception for the show is Saturday March 26th, from 12 to 2 PM.
We are proud to say that Sharin Jonas is apart of our art program, and are excited to continue to see her and her creations soar.
The biggest art exhibition in Flagstaff has announced it dates! The Flagstaff Recycled Art Exhibition is returning for its 14th year. This year it is being hosted at the Arts Connection Gallery at the Flagstaff Mall.
The Hozhoni artists will create a piece to contribute, and we encourage all artists of Coconino and Yavapai counties to participate. The gallery space at the mall is quite expansive, and artists can submit up to 4 pieces this year. In addition to the exhibition, there will be free artist demonstrations at the gallery space from 1 to 3 PM every Saturday in April after the reception.
If you are interested in participating, or simply wish to attend the reception, information will be available on the Artist Coalition of Flagstaff’s website (http://www.flagstaff-arts.org/), along with the application. We hope to see you there!
For our second year, Hozhoni is hosting for its first show of 2016 the Textile and Ceramic exhibition. Just like its name implies, this show contains fiber arts and various items made out of clay. Due to the versatility and practical nature of both mediums, there will be many features in the show to display textiles’ and ceramics’ functions.
The reception will be Saturday, January 23rd from 12 to 2 PM at our Hozhoni Gallery. During the reception, there will also be a make and take workshop using modeling clay for all ages. At this workshop, all supplies are covered. We are asking for a $5 suggested donation, but don’t stress too much about it if its hard to find the funds.
The show will run until the end of February, so we hope that you can make it in to see the beautiful variety of creations made by the Hozhoni artists.
We will be open from 5 – 8 pm this Friday to participate in this month’s East Side Art Experience. Come join us for a free weaving workshop, refreshments, gallery and studio tour. Pin It
