Friendship yields inspiration for local artists

A unique friendship fostered in the last year has led two Payson women down the rabbit hole of their imaginations. In the recesses and folds, they each found a colorful world they thought had long ago dried up. Each encouraged the other’s ‘weirdness’ and what emerged were dreamlike landscapes, papier-mâché sculptures and vibrant watercolor scenes dealing with issues such as cancer, eating disorders, icons, body issues and cultural taboos. “Short Stories and Visions,” a bright, bold exhibition at Bill’s Custom Frames and Gallery, 910 S. Hohokam Drive, Suite 105 in Tempe, opens Saturday, Sept. 24. and runs through Oct. 22.
