First Friday on Roosevelt will be returning this week with hundreds of examples of the artistic talent in Phoenix. Olney Gallery at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral will be opening with painter Alfredo Escarcega’s work, which is heavily based on Surrealism. His influences come from his surroundings—from the barrios of Southern California to the deserts of Arizona, Escarcega’s Technicolor art offers a unique perspective on the world.
Call Me Debbie—True Confessions of a Down-to-earth Diva, by Deborah Voight, Harper, 2015 "...you’ll come away from this book not only loving Voights artistry and talent, but also loving her as a person, and admiring her for going through this ring of fire and coming out the other side. After reading this memoir, Debbie’s more than a talented Diva—she’s family." --Randy Kinkel, KBAQ (Meet Debbie at Changing Hands bookstore at 3 pm Feb 15th!)
