DeAnn Melton
DeAnn Melton grew up in Lubbock, Texas. She has lived in Tucson, Arizona since 1978. DeAnn graduated from the University of Arizona with a M.F.A. degree and is a working artist. She started a series of paintings called Masters & Lovers in 1992 which are life size portraits of artists, curators, and collectors painted from life sittings. Masters &Lovers have been shown at the Roswell Art Center in Roswell, New Mexico and at the Tucson Museum of Art. DeAnn also paints large still life paintings which are lush and full of energy.

James Pringle Cook
James Pringle Cook is a native Kansan who now lives in Tucson, Arizona, with his wife and fellow artist, DeAnn Melton. Cook’s paintings are in the best tradition of American landscape painting. They are big and gutsy, full of virtuosity, with lavish, vigorous and confident brush strokes. In this exhibit, his paintings bring us closer to the vast splendor of the Flint Hills where he spent his formative years and continues to maintain ties to the land and its people. His paintings hang in museums throughout the world including the Denver Art Museum, Phoenix Art Museum, South Dakota Museum of Fine Arts, Tucson Museum of Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Osaka, Japan. His work is included in dozens of public art collections from New York, to London, to Kyoto, Japan.

The Melton/Cook studio is in northwest Tucson. Also, the old Cook Hardware store which is in an 1880's building in Kansas has been renovated to use as a studio.

Ellen A. Cook
Ellen A. Cook works in the Melton/Cook studio and is the daughter of James Pringle Cook and DeAnn Melton. She is both a fine sculptor and painter who has shown both her sculpture and paintings. Ellen painted a large mural for Carlota's Authentic MexicanCuisine in Catalina, Arizona and a mural for a private barn
