Art Exhibit: Photography – "Pushing Boundaries"

Center for the Arts at Kayetna is honored to host the Kayenta Arts Festival. “Pushing Boundaries” is a photography show that entices photographers to look at things a bit differently, to try a new technique, to take risks with their photos. The show opened on March 4th with a reception catered by Victoria Topham of Petite Feast–Victoria really tempted us by pushing the boundaries of her flavorful combinations!
 
“Pushing Boundaries” will be on exhibit until Wednesday, April 29th.  All of the amazing photos are for sale (with 25% of the proceeds going to the Kayenta Arts Foundation and Center for the Arts at Kayenta). We hope you enjoy viewing the amazing work our local artists create.

Art Exhibit: "Renewal"

This marks the Foundation’s first exhibit in a series that will last indefinitely, with the theme changing every two months. The pieces of “Renewal” will remain displayed and on sale at the Center for the Arts at Kayenta until the beginning of March, when our theme will be centered around photography. Please plan on making any purchases of art during regular box office hours between 12 and 4pm, Monday through Friday.

There will be an artist’s reception held at the Center for the Arts at Kayenta on Wednesday the opening week of each new Exhibit. The reception will run from 6:30–8:00 PM. Admission is free. Victoria Topham of Petite Feast, host and chef will be providing the gourmet refreshments.
