  • Dudes and Dudettes—Fiber Arts by Marla Hattabaugh

    Dudes and Dudettes—Fiber Arts by Marla Hattabaugh

    Scottsdale resident Marla Hattabaugh learned to quilt in the 1970s when her mother gave her a quilting kit, and her husband bet her $10 she wouldn’t finish it. She took that challenge and hasn’t stopped, creating beautiful quilts and fiber artworks.

    In 1986, the American Folk Art Museum in New York City sponsored a quilt contest to honor the Statue of Liberty. Her piece won for the state of Arizona, and during the opening activities there, she met many talented, nationally known quilters. This led to other connections within the quilting community and further opportunities to learn about the art and exhibit her work.

    Hattabaugh has since become an expert in dying fabrics and hand quilting, and she continues to teach and learn about the craft with other quilters throughout the nation.

    The series Dudes and Dudettes depicts abstracted, patched-together human forms on individual panels. They appear to dance, pulsate, and float in bright colors. Rich and multilayered with patterns, each one takes about a month to create with Hattabaugh’s own hand-dyed fabrics.

  • Janel Garza: Environ

    7374 East Second Street
    Scottsdale, AZ 85251
    Janel Garza: Environ

    As the title suggests, the new mural unveiled at SMoCA, Environ was designed to reflect multiple features that directly surround the space. Each aspect of the courtyard where it resides is taken into consideration—from the colored light of James Carpenter’s glass scrim wall to the ever-changing view of James Turrell’s skyspace, Knight Rise, as well as the nearby native plant life. Pulling simple abstract shapes and colors from each of these influences created one cohesive and fluid design. The intention of the artist is to complement the space and welcome visitors to spend time within the courtyard walls.
