“PERSPECTIVES: Above-Below-Beyond,” a new community art gallery show presented by Kingman Center for the Arts, opens Thursday, April 21 at the ArtHub in downtown Kingman at 402 E. Beale Street. The “Artists Reception” will held on Saturday, April 23 from 2-5 pm and the public is welcome. There will be light refreshments and artists will be there to answer questions and mingle.
 
“The theme of this new art show gives our local artists a chance to push the boundaries of conventional perceptions and venture into some interesting new visual territory,” said John Van Vliet, Art Gallery Director. “In our day to day life, we can sometimes let our own perceptions solidify and this exhibit will allow us to look beyond our own range. Please come down for a visit and see what our artists see.”
 
Some of the unique pieces include a framed 3D fish with turtles made entirely of fabric, a knotty gourd with a twist (literally), and mixed media art pieces with battery operated lights. There is even a totem pole, over 5 feet tall, made of several clay sculptures that are fired, painted with high fire glaze and refired. “Unlike traditional totem poles, the pole tells the story of a life, likes and loves. But people could not decide on the one piece that told their story so by engineering a stacking system, the totem can tell an entire story,” said Sheila Barger, sculptor
 
The KCA Gallery show “PERSPECTIVES: Above-Below-Beyond” runs through June 4th at the ArtHub. Hours are 11-5pm Tuesday-Thursday and 11-6pm Friday & Saturday. The ArtHub will stay open until 8pm on the May 6th and June 3rd “First Friday: LIVE AFTER FIVE” downtown events.
