Art Murals in Northern Arizona
Native Artist Jerrel Singer
Driving North out of Arizona, on Highway 89, can be a bit bleak. The vistas occupying this barren land are not filled with to many breathtaking views, though if you leave comparison behind you, there is a true uniqueness to be found.

One such sanctuary is on the southern edge of a small village known as, Gray Mountain. Situated on the side of the road, at a seemingly abandoned filling station is an impromptu art gallery with plenty of parking and a great place to stop and water the dog, stretch the legs and view some very unique art.

Jerrel Singer, a Navajo artist who grew up in Cameron and Gray Mountain on the Navajo reservation, is known for his vibrant flowing colors, has painted a group of murals reflecting issues faced by the Navajo people, including uranium mining.

Singer’s murals are sending a message that is tied to the land and his people living on the reservation, a message that needs to be heard more now then ever. A dispatch of significance as it not only comes from Singer, it derives form his home, the place of his birth.

These impactful murals of Jerrel Singer, and the message they are shouting is one to hear. Stop, pay homage and listen to what is being spoken. – dbA

Playa Gigante
This small fishing village of Playa Gigante, Nicaragua is severely struggling. Because of the political crisis in Nicaragua, the loss of tourism, and the unemployment is at an all-time high. Playa Gigante is a small fishing village located north of San Juan del Sur, on the Southern Pacific Coast of Nicaragua. The village has a small population of about 500 and they are some of the most gracious people I have ever met, but they are in trouble. With the fishing and tourism industry suffering greatly, the unemployment rate is rapidly increasing. These proud people are hurting. They need help feeding and caring for their families.

I am asking for your help, to help them. In the forth-coming future you will be hearing about humanitarian plans to assist this village, and a strategy to raise money for Gigante, via donations and art sales. My goal is to raise $1000 per month. If we can do this, the entire village can be supplied with Gallo Pinto, (beans and rice) and compassionately assisted. In the greater plan of things, $1000 dollars is a truly a very small amount, but to them it is massive.

If you are in possession of one of those kind souls and would just like to give a donation of love please contact me. Even the smallest amount will help greatly. I guarantee that each dollar received will be going to help these proud people. Not one dime will be spent on administration fees or salaries to a CEO. Please contact me if you would like to donate something or have any questions about helping. You can also go to my website, www.contributechaos.com and click on the link, Art Carneys For Playa Gigante, it will take you to a Donation button.

There will be a list of donations received. Please let me know when you make the donation if I can post your name and amount, or if you prefer I will keep it anonymous.


A Page From My Journal

 This Art Show has been extended until the end of January!!
A show of my Journals is currently being displayed in the Gallery at the Sublette Country Library. It will be up until the end at the end of the month.
Here are a few new images from the new pages of my Art Journals that are not in the show.

Artist Statement
Each morning I open my journals and pour into them myself. These are thoughts and ideas that arrive from unlimited sources. This is my voice, be it in words or in art. It is a collection of oddities, fascinations, desires and obsessions – a road map of sorts, tracking the life of a man that can’t and won’t fit in.

Now I make available 98% of my freedom and perspectives with, Chronologies – Excerpts – Fragments and Reflections, be they unsolidified and random thoughts, words of meaning, words of too much meaning, or perhaps at times, meandering, incomplete and unedited rants, unleashed to the masses. The other 2% I keep to myself archived as a waiting gift for the scholars and naysayers to decipher after I walk on.
These pieces are available framed and for purchase. Please contact me for information.
