July 17 – November 14, 2021

FOUND:RE Contemporary and FOUND:RE Phoenix Hotel are excited to announce the opening of their new exhibition, “XSCAPE: Landscapes, Cityscapes and Mindscapes,” with support provided by Artlink Inc. This exhibition cycle will present the work of 64 Arizona artists who are exploring a variety of landscape motifs, both realistic and imagined. The exhibition opens to the public on July 17 and runs through November 14, 2021 with the opening reception on July 17, 6-10pm.

This survey of some of the most inspired talent in the state is open to the public on a 24/7 basis and covers the entire ground floor of the FOUND:RE Phoenix Hotel. This allows for social distancing while giving art lovers the opportunity to see the exhibition at their leisure. The exhibition will be presented as part of FOUND:RE Contemporary’s regular schedule of rotating exhibitions organized by curator Audrey Galat. The majority of works will be for sale and patrons can preview the prices online at foundrecontemporary.com.
