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!
Brandy’s restaurant has always been a huge supporter of the Hozhoni Art Program since the very beginning. And now, almost 20 years later, we are still shown a big welcome from them. This year, the Artists Coalition of Flagstaff designated the theme as Magic, Majesty, and Mystery. The exhibition runs from July 22 to September 5, 2016 at Brandy’s Restaurant at 1500 E Cedar Ave in Flagstaff, Arizona.
After a bit of an absence, we are returning to participate in Open Studios. The last weekend of August we will have our studio open with some of the artists present to show their work space and even show you their process. Our open studios location is at our gallery location, at 2133 N Walgreen St in Flagstaff, Arizona.
The Road Ahead celebrates the highly original work created by adult artists with developmental disabilities. Four venues in the United States that serve adults with development disabilities with art programs have partnered to develop this unique traveling exhibition. This includes Flagstaff’s own Hozhoni Foundation.
The exhibition will open with a Members’ Preview Reception on Saturday, August 20, 2016, 6-8pm. The following weekend will be the Public Opening Reception on Saturday, August 27, 6–8pm. There will be live music, hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. The participating artists from Flagstaff will be in attendance.
The venue, Coconino Center for the Arts, is located at 2300 N Fort Valley Road in Flagstaff, Arizona.
We hope to see you at least one of these events! Happy summer!
Hozhoni is please to have presented Senator Sylvia Allen with the “Hozhoni Hero” award for her efforts to increase State funding for people with developmental disabilities. For her time and determination, we proudly call her our Caped Crusader! Thank you so much for your dedication!
Hello again everyone!
We have lots of fun stuff happening in the Hozhoni world this summer. Perhaps the biggest thing we have going on right now is the first ever Flagstaff Urban Flea Market.
The Flagstaff Urban Flea Market is an awesome, eclectic mix of artisans and peddlers who make and sell a unique variety of goods. The various vendors sell items such as records, antiques, books, bicycles, food, gems and minerals, handmade woodwork and leatherwork, ceramics, soaps, vintage clothing, used tools, comics, toys, household goods, jewelry, upcycled goods, flowers, and any other sort of funky/flea market type treasures. Flagstaff Urban Flea will be held second Saturdays of the months June through October right on Historic Route 66 in the heart of downtown Flagstaff!
We already had our first flea market this last Saturday, and with a great turn out! But fret not! We will be there through October, so if you missed us this time, you have more opportunities to visit.
We are also excited for Sharin Jonas in her new illustration adventure. She was contacted to help a local writer, Art Scott, bring some color to his short story series he is producing.
She has already completed the first illustration for the first installment of the story, titled “Awakenings”.
Each installment will be in the NOISE newspaper, which is published once a month. They are available at several locations in downtown Flagstaff, as well as the public library and online.
Thank you once again for all your continued support!
Hozhoni’s presence in the media continues to spread all across the country, and now it has landed in the pages of a book of stories called the Desert Oracle. Based out of Joshua Tree, California, the Desert Oracle is described as “a pocket-sized field guide to the fascinating American deserts: weird tales, ghost towns, wonderfully bizarre animals and plants, mysteries and folklore, national and state parks, slickrock arches, legends of lost mines and ships on the sand dunes, beloved authors and artists, and plenty of oddball desert characters from the past and the present.” In the Spring issue of this year, an article was included that featured our very own Robert Zappanti, and it tells the narrative of his trip to Roswell with a former art instructor. Written by that very same former Hozhoni art instructor, it gives a very raw look into the inspiration to one of Rob’s favorite subject matters, and shows the perspective of what it is like to work with artists with disabilities.
This zine can be purchased online at their website, http://www.desertoracle.com, for a very reasonable fee, if you wish to read this story and many others from the deserts of America. Its a great read, and gives a unique perspective into art, inspiration, and aliens.
After a long absence, the Hozhoni Art Gallery is selling prints again! We have a small selection to start, with popular pieces from Sharin Jonas, Edward Haswood, Robert Zappanti, and other artists from the program.
They sell for 10 dollars each, and come with a matte and plastic bag for protection. We unfortunately cannot sell items online, so please make a visit to the gallery sometime and pick one up in person.
If you would like to request a print to be made, please contact the art gallery attendant Rachel Greig for any questions.
Have a happy May everyone!

We just added some new mugs featuring Miranda Delgai, Robert Zappanti, and Kathy McCumber. Come check them out at the gallery or Artist Coalition in the Flagstaff Mall. Pin It
