Don’t miss this chance to hear Stephen Mack, artist, writer and photographer talk about his work, some of which is featured in Amerind’s Art Gallery in a show entitled Sonoran Light.

 

Steve’s first art teacher – his father – introduced him to crayons just short of his third birthday. By the age of eight, Steve had been introduced to watercolor and oil painting.

 

Steve resumed painting in late 2009. He now works exclusively in oils on stretched canvas. Even though Steve has absorbed the trends of 20th century art, his painting style owes nothing to Picasso or any of the modern masters. Instead, his art is influenced by the great landscapes of Claude Lorrain, Corot, and Constable. His paintings, unabashedly and even aggressively realistic, attempt to capture the light, the foliage, the textures of Arizona, particularly the Sonoran Desert. Steve is half Tohono O’odham (his mother was from Little Tucson), and O’odham subjects often figure into his artwork. His work has been shown at the Western National Parks Association headquarters in Oro Valley and at the Tohono O’odham Cultural Center and Museum in Topawa, Arizona.

In The Footsteps Of The Wetherills

May 11 - 15, 2015

 

Don’t miss this opportunity to explore the Four Corners region following in the footsteps of the Wetherills, an influential family of explorers.  Their travels took them  to many of the iconic archaeological sites in the area such as Mesa Verde and Keet Seel. Richard Wetherill homesteaded and ran a trading post in Chaco Canyon servicing the local Navajo population, also the location of his grave site. Departing from Tucson, AZ, this tour will visit numerous archaeological sites, trading posts, museums, and areas of great geological beauty.

 

Our Tour Leaders

More than thirty years ago, Harvey Leake began researching the history of his pioneering ancestors, the Wetherills of the Four Corners region. His investigations have taken him to libraries, archives, and the homes of family elders whose recollections, photographs, and memorabilia have brought their story to life. His field research has led him to remote trading post sites in Navajo country and some of the routes used by his great-grandfather, John Wetherill, to access the intricate canyon country of the Colorado Plateau.

Carolyn O'Bagy Davis, assisting with the tour, is a historian and the author of 14 books on the Southwest, including her newest book Arizona's Historic Trading Posts.

Cost:

Members: $2000 (double occupancy, single supplement required for solo travelers)

Non-members: $2300 (double occupancy), single supplement required for solo travelers)

Battleground Arizona
August 12 - 15, 2015
Beat the Heat this Summer!

Southern Arizona was a focal point of the late nineteenth century Apache wars. In the early years of the wars, conflicts resulted from Apache raids and settler reprisals that escalated into a cycle of violence that made southern Arizona a dangerous place to live, for settlers and Apaches alike.


Led by Neil Mangum, this four-day, three-night tour spotlights Chiricahua and White Mountain Apache history during this time. We will visit the White Mountain Apache Reservation including visits to historic Ft. Apache, Cibecue, and a performance by the highly acclaimed Apache Crown Dancers. Also on the agenda are visits to Cochise Stronghold, and the ruins of Dragoon Stage Station and fabled Ft. Bowie.


Neil is a historian, author, and a former park superintendent at Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument and Chiricahua National Monument.
