TEMPE, Ariz. – “Momentum” explores movement and will be on display from Nov. 19 through March 9 in the windows at the United States Post Office, 500 W. Mill Avenue.

The term art or sculptures usually brings to mind a painting, drawing or large public sculpture in the middle of a park. But not all art is stationary and some art can imply movement. This exhibition features three Arizona artists whose works are kinetic or have implied movement. All works use a different media and have a different outlook on “art that moves you.”

Royce Carlson
, of Prescott, was born in Chicago and grew up in Southern California. He is a self-proclaimed college “drop out” and “happy guy” and lived in a commune in Washington for a number of years in the 1970s. He tried to corporate realm in the 80s but found himself searching for another non-traditional venture and has been living and working as an artist and handyman in Prescott since 1991. He recently started working in welded steel and enjoys filling his yard with junk steel to make his work.

Prescott’s Bandhu Scott Dunham’s odd juxtapostioned and bending forms create a spin on glasswork that he claims, “follow my own quirky sensibility.” Dunham continues to create his art while teaching workshops at private studios and craft schools all around the world.

Scottsdale’s Matt Mays’ artwork has been purchased by a multitude of people and companies, including Willie Nelson and Google. Mays continues to pursue his art and has had some of his work shown at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Washington, D.C.
