For the first time since the 1980s art fans will see a new work by Daniel Buckley as part of a showcase of Tucson artists at La Fashionista, 45 S. Sixth Ave, Saturday Jan. 11 from 6-10 p.m.

“I rarely print work these days,” Buckley says. “It’s hard to get colors and tones to truly match what one sees on a screen. It’s frustrating. Framing costs are outrageous as well.”

But with the recent series “Este Es Mi Ciudad” (this is my city) growing considerably, Buckley felt it was time to print a few choice pieces. When the invitation came from La Fashionista clothier/store owner/artist Eleanor Leon to be part of a show of Tucson artists, Buckley went through recent prints and chose a work titled “Signals” to represent the series in the show.

Other artists in the show include Laura Milkins, CE Elliot, Eleanor Leon, Nico Ratoff, Christina Cardenas, Randy Harris, Lisa Jo Roden, Pia Mogollon, Joe Marshall and others.

In the 1980s, Buckley occasionally showed hand elaborated photo collages of odd things from Tucson and his boyhood town of Catskill, N.Y. During much of his time working with the Tucson Citizen from 1987-2009 Buckley rarely ventured into art photography. But  the past several years have seen an exponential burst in his photographic work, stimulated first by desert landscapes and later by the old and new of the city around him.

A resident of Tucson since 1971, Daniel Buckley is an award winning documentary maker, composer, photographer and journalist.
