The art of Andrew Rush will be on display until Feb. 2, 2020. His exhibit titled “Sonoran Desert Grasses” features a technique that uses various grasses and plants blended with acrylic colors and imprinted on heavy watercolor paper. The works were inspired by the quiet desert walks Andrew used to take with his wife of 45 years, Ann Woodin, noted desert writer.
