About the show from the Foothills Art Center website -
"A play on the term used in restaurants, amuse bouche, meaning a bite –sized appetizer. Amuse Yeux is a mixed media small works show inspired by this concept. Artists from our community submitted over 200 works in response to our call for entry. Pat Rucker, President of the FAC board, led the selection process. Our Executive Director, Hassan Najjar, invited a handful of artists from past exhibitions to lend work outside of the jury process. The 40 pieces in total represent a wide variety of disciplines. we hoped to display something to suit the taste of any visitor.
The mission for this show was to provide an opportunity for young adults in our community to begin art collections at an entry level price point. Often times the exceptional artwork for sale in the galleries of FAC can be cost prohibitive to the masses. By hosting a show of small works, many of them created just for this instance, we can lower the price of the works without sacrificing quality.
On view through August 13th 2017"
