"Icons of Experience: An Anniversary Show," a celebratory exhibition featuring "the classical, yet mysterious and brilliantly moody oil paintings" of Arizona artist William Blomquist, is on display at Jane Hamilton Fine Art through Sunday, April 4.

Blomquist has been a featured artist at Jane Hamilton Fine Art for all 18 years she's been in the gallery business.

Blomquist describes his paintings as "glimpses of unfolding tales" that are "rich with riddles and symbols, and the human form, a release said.

Blomquist, a native Arizonan, is a former resident of Bisbee, Oracle and Tucson. He now lives in Yuma, where he teaches art at Arizona Western College.

Blomquist exhibits artwork nationally as well as locally, and is represented in the collections of the U.S. Army Art Collection of the U.S. Army Center for Military History, Purdue University, the University of Arizona, and in many private collections.

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
