“Art at the Palms” Sunday Brunch November Lineup

We are premiering a brand new set of artists for the month of November. T. Cook's "Art at the Palms" Sunday brunch is held from 10:00am to 2:00pm.
Art at the Palms kicked off in November with Harold Schifman showcasing his artwork this past Sunday, November 7th. Formally educated in art history and abstract impressionism, Harold was highly influenced by Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock and Wassily Kandinsky. The daring use of color and bold brush strokes of these impressionists forge the style and direction of his paintings. Harold enjoys living in Paradise Valley where he is nestled peacefully atop Mummy Mountain overlooking Phoenix. His environment fuels his use of shape and color which inspires his most recent works; where a vibrant metropolis unites with the essence of the Sonoran Desert. His paintings hang in corporate and private collections throughout the United States.
On November 14th, come see bestselling author and screenplay writer, Victor Ostrovsky. Victor’s inclination for the arts was apparent at a young age. Growing up in Israel, he was spellbound when watching his neighbor, the well known Israeli painter Giladi, create works of art. After joining the Navy at the age of 18, Victor's artwork took a tantalizing transition. His insight and knowledge of the intelligence community facilitates his cryptic paintings. His work evokes a mystical story by creative placement of gloves, scarves, hats and umbrellas. Ostrovsky Fine Art Gallery is located in Scottsdale, AZ.
Our artist on November 21st was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. E. Manning Crook has been trained by professional art institutes since a very young age. After attending college at the Art Institute of Chicago and the University of Chicago, she moved to Arizona to begin work as a freelance fashion illustrator. Once in Arizona, she developed an interest in drawing Native American symbols and culture. E. Manning Crook has since travelled widely through the southwest to reservations and pueblos to find inspiration for her art. Her work also includes sketches of the Oregon coast, and has been exhibited in Arizona for over 20 years.
Tom Dorr will be joining us on November 28th. Like our other artists, his desire to be an artist started in grade school. With a scholarship to Colorado State University, he was able to fine-tune his art skills and pursue a career as a professional artist. Tom's style focuses as a realistic and impressionistic representation of the West. He enjoys painting different aspects of western subject matter including ranchers, cowboys, vehicles and buildings. Tom's work can be seen in galleries in Arizona, Wyoming and numerous shows across the west.
