Time-Lapse by Eva Carter
- read the press release
Opening Reception, Friday, July 5th,
Presentation, Saturday, July 6th, 2-3p
Show - July 2nd to July 16th
Looking at her body of work, Carter
realizes it was done over a number of years and is a reflection of
the passing of time in her life. She also recognizes how that
passage of time has changed her approach to the creative process.
Life's changes are experienced as a slow, steady process and most
often we're not aware of the consequence of change. Carter's work is
a journal of who and where she was at any given point in her life.
With every emotional experience we encounter, we become wiser and
most of all, the person we are becoming. As the great painter and
teacher, Robert Henri said, "Style is the way we talk in paint."
Carter has chosen Abstract Expressionism as her language.
this show of Carter's colorful, emotional, and
gestural abstract expressionist paintings - a reflection of her life.
Saturday, Eva will be giving a presentation about the evolution of
her art career. You'll have an opportunity to interact directly with
her. Come with questions.
Beneath the Surface - New Work by Sandra Duran
read the press
Presentation - Saturday, July 20th, 2-3p
Opening Reception - Friday, July 26th, 5-7p
Show - July 17th to July 30th
Presentation - Wilson
will present a gallery talk on her show Beneath the Surface
sharing how science and synesthesia are central to her process of
layers, images, poetry, sounds and music. When she hears music she
sees colors, and numbers have sounds like musical notes. She'll
share some of the unusual materials that find their way into her work.
Wilson works in layers, beginning with a
poem, word or inspiration that is written on the canvas prior to
painting. This is rarely seen in the finished painting, but it
informs and inspires the process. Sometimes it may be a mathematical
formula or a musical score. These inspire and focus Wilson's process
of layering to the finished painting.
Join us for both the Presentation on July 20th and Wilson's Opening
Reception on the 26th.
Texture/Chroma (Rock & River), New Work by Jakki Kouffman
Opening Reception - Friday, August 2nd,
Join us on Saturday. Jakki will share her inspiration
afternoon presentation from 2-3 pm
Show - July 31st through August 14th
Bold color, physical texture, sweeping
gesture: these are all qualities that Kouffman calls upon to
represent the impossibly beautiful vistas of northern New Mexico.
Invoking the spirit of overstatement, she singles out features of
the environment that move her. Kouffman adds to that the frequent
use of the palette knife to create low relief equivalents of cliffs
and gorges; all evidence of her ongoing fascination with red rock
and the unambiguous flow of high desert rivers.

Presentation - Jakki will freely share the inspiration for her
paintings at her Saturday afternoon presentation. Join us for an
intimate interaction with a knowledgeable and articulate artist.
The Exploration Continues, New Work by Aleta
Opening Reception, Friday, August 16th,
Show - August 15th through September 3rd
In 2010, Pippin's show was "The Path of
Exploration." That exploration continues. Never one to "stand
still", Pippin is always exploring the various media. Previously
working in oils and acrylics on different surfaces - traditional
canvas, panels, and aluminum or copper - she continues to explore.
Pippin's new body of work will contain paintings done with oil, acrylic,
ink, plaster, collage and whatever other media Pippin feels will
assist in creating the surface she's intent on achieving.
Join us to see what new ground Pippin has forged with this current
body of work.
