Talented Employees


When I was at the Phoenix Art Museum last week, I saw a new exhibit of art works done by employees of the museum.  I was so impressed by all of the works in this exhibit.  The painting above was especially impressive.  It was painted by Henry Bellavia who is a Preparator at the museum.  It's called "Dragon Blood Tree".  (I had to look up what a 'Preparator' was.  It's a art handler or one who prepares art for exhibits.)


This oil painting is by Brandon Edelson who is a Gallery Attendant.  It's called "Cassowary".  An abundance of talent can be found in an art museum and some of that talent belongs to the people who work there.

Amazing how many people are talented and creative. Nice idea to ask the own employees to show their skills.

I wonder if being surrounded by incredible works of art begins to influence them Sharon, it would have to be inspiring ✨

Talents are sometimes hidden and when they are allowed to pop up it's a treat for us and perhaps the beginning of something for the "authors/artists".

A "preparator" -- that's a new one on me, too. Great work by some talented artists!

This is an interesting idea. Exhibiting artworks by employees of the museum? A clever idea.
