PAST EXHIBITS

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.
