Art & Culture
Alexandria Winslow has not lived in Southern Arizona her entire life, but when she arrived in 1982 it was clear to her that the dramatic landscape hit all the high notes of visual beauty she had been longing for as an artist. Her art had always been about nature and wildlife so the Sonoran Desert full of color and drama really appealed to her passion for drawing and painting.
Tucson Happenings is devoted to our local artists and have been publishing monthly artist profiles for years. This page will list many artists that have profiled since we went digital in May of 2015.
Watercolor, acrylic, oil, oh my! Plucked from the hundreds of events in the November 2017 calendar, we have our monthly rundown of local galleries and artists with special and ongoing exhibits this month..

While there aren’t many turning leaves here in Tucson, Fall is still in the air as our evenings cool down and days return to double digit temperatures. This season is a perfect moment to look at what’s new in fashion, whether because it’s finally comfortable to wear pants again or because we’re just tired of our summer clothes!

This origami onesie was developed from some of my origami shirt designs. Once folded it can be decorated in many ways, using colored pencils, markers, and decorative stickers. Then it can be added to a card, used as a gift tag, or by itself as a decoration. It can also be used as part of a birth announcement!

My road trip started on 9/28 with Will and we had no particular plans at all except for the fact we had hotel reservations in Vegas for October 1-3. We just started driving on an adventure that ended up being a very paranormal adventure.

Wealthy socialite Vonda De Cringe has set her sights on a take-over of Pennypacker’s Department Store.
