Documenting urban beauty – as each is committed to and loves the Valley/Phoenix urban environment. Jennie has lived here longest and has created many images of the community and the local population; Tyson is deeply embedded in the social networking arena and is the creator of #pfn (phoenix friday nights) a group that you can find on twitter/facebook; and Kyle’s studio is in the heart of the Grand Avenue arts district and he is active in the Grand Avenue Merchants Association.  Jordre has also been nominated for a 2009 Governor’s Arts Award in the Artist category.  These prestigious awards recognize outstanding contributions to the Arizona arts community and are presented by Arizona Citizens for the Arts, the Arizona Commission on the Arts, and the Office of the Governor.  Each of these valley artists is committed to our downtown community and through their work, they document urban beauty quite uniquely.
