Royse Contemporary will present Observation & Imagination to examine ideas of observation verses imagination.

The exhibit, based on the artists’ perspective and creative process, will be on display through April 27 at Royse Contemporary located in the Scottsdale Arts District in the Marshall Square complex, 7077 E. Main Street, Suite 6, according to a press release.

The work of Angel Cabrales, Cherie Buck-Hutchison, Charmagne Coe, Bill Dambrova, Lee Davis, Cam DeCaussin, Gennaro Garcia, Rafael Navarro, Dan Pederson, Daniel Shepherd, Marilyn Szabo, Casey Wakefield, and Scott “ColorOrgy” Wolf will be showcased.

The release detailed how one defines “observation” in art as drawing or painting from life, while “imagination” emphasizes the artist’s ability to produce images and ideas without “immediate input of the senses.” the release said.

Owner/curator, Nicole Royse selected artists whose work highlights their use of imagery, styles, and voice through an array of mediums including collage, drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, and mixed media.

Royse Contemporary is open 9:30-1:30pm, Monday, Tuesday, Friday; 6:00-9:00pm, Thursday; and 11 a.m.-4 p.m., Saturday.
