    Studies in Contrasting Styles
    by Linda Weigel
    The contrasting painting styles of two well- known area artists highlight this month’s artistic presentations.
    In Dorothy Graden’s “Timeless Mysteries,” now at The Rising Phoenix Gallery, color-infused works unite handmade/hand-colored pulp with watercolor, India ink and pastels. Her one-woman exhibit ex- udes confidence with a lightness of touch, as well as expressive lines and explosive color.
    “Winter Journey of The Shadow Spirits,” a mixed media by Dorothy Graden.
    Thematically, the art relates to her extensive travels through the American West and Southwest, combining personal exploration of prehistoric rock art with innate contemporary sensibilities. Her re- interpretation of dreamlike states and ancient an- cestors results in a very individualistic statement.
    The show closes June 5.
