Judy Breedlove & Ray Ortiz “Watercolorist”

As artist's we are here to share our gifts with others, it is a valuable healing experience for both the creator and the observer. Ray Ortiz – Watercolorist Ray’s work shows that the seemingly delicate medium of watercolor can be bold, rich and dramatic. he shows others how to view the everyday world in another way by taking what is not first noticeable and bring that into focus to give the viewer a new perspective.

Lab for the Acoustic Window Project: an acoustic installation
One night only! Cluett will build two small chambers inside a moving truck, with an open window between them. The inner chamber is soundproofed from the outside world. Visual contact can be made between the chambers through the open window, but Cluett's special acoustic design prevents auditory transmission. This will create a disconnect between visual and auditory information relative to natural perception.

Ted Gall, Sculptor & Charlotte Foust, Painter
The artistic stylings of sculptor Ted Gall and painter Charlotte Foust couldn’t be more different, but their work has in common a powerful emotional impact that leaves the viewer pondering hidden meanings and experiencing a sense of excitement. Gall’s intricate, whimsical sculptures in bronze and steel bring an interactive element to an otherwise immobile art form, allowing us to literally see beyond the masks of his enigmatic characters and enjoy the same tactile pleasure that the artist himself derives from his work. The strong narrative thrust of Gall’s fanciful characters and situations invites us to attach our own personal meanings to the stories played out amid the odd juxtapositions and imaginative imagery. The sculptures’ movable parts and the energetic postures of characters engaged in mysterious activities bring a special dynamism to this work, and an almost dreamlike atmosphere pervades each of his highly detailed evocations of life’s mysteries. Foust’s abstracted bursts of color and form pull the viewer into a vortex of energy. Amid the drama of her expansive brush strokes and bold palette we find moments of stillness that provide a number of entry points for interpreting the organic lines and marks that give the paintings structure and cohesion. She layers the paint and incorporates the textures of her surfaces into the overall work, imparting a sense of dimensionality and motion to the paintings while bringing a certain discipline that tames the raw emotion of the abstractions.

Kathleen Doyle Cook: Summer of Color: Intensity in Abstraction
New Concept Gallery announces a solo exhibit showcasing the vibrant abstract paintings of Kathleen Doyle Cook. The exhibition’s opening will be held from 5–7 PM, on Friday, August 7, 2015 at the New Concept Gallery, 610 Canyon Road, Santa Fe, NM. The exhibit runs through August 31, 2015. Doyle Cook’s intuitive images are often described as “sensory landscapes.” She works primarily in acrylic and mixed media with layers of brushwork creating rich surfaces and textures. It is these rich surfaces that invite an exploration of the levels of awareness found in the spaces between a “known image” and its layers of possibilities. The paintings cannot dictate the viewer’s response because they have evolved in the abstract without preconception.

Body and Movement – Etchings by Brian Giza
*** Exhibition dates: August 7 - 29, 2015. Sneak Preview: August 4 - 6, 2015. First Friday Artscrawl Reception: Friday, August 7 2015, 5 – 8 pm. Demonstration during the opening from 6:30 – 7:00 pm by Brian Giza *** A master draftsman, portrait and figurative artist, Brian Giza can be found at ballet studios busily sketching the dancers as they put on their shoes, stretch and rehearse. He often works on the copper plates directly rather than sketching on paper first. An accomplished thespian and professor at UTEP, every moment in his life not teaching or performing Shakespeare is dedicated to making art. Giza’s dancers come very close in skill and expression to those of Manet.

encajes de la mirada
Nuart Gallery is pleased to present, "encajes de la mirada" a solo exhibition of new paintings by the artist Alberto Galvez. The exhibition will run August 7 through August 23, 2015, with an opening reception on Friday, August 7th from 5:00 - 7:00 pm. The artist will not be present. In this exhibition renowned Spanish painter Alberto Galvez continues his exploration of the notion of the gaze in western art. His bold figures look out from a timeless place into our world, just as we reflect back on theirs. His work expresses an innate classicism and a respect for composition, form and content. Using the renaissance technique of grisaille, he glazes his translucent colors in fine layers over the monochromatic lower registers of the painting. This effect creates an ethereal glow and gives his faces a transcendent quality. Presenting the viewer with a form of Mediterranean portraiture that stretches back to the Byzantine era, his paintings remind us that his subject is as contemporary as it is ancient

The Indigenous Modernist Intersection: Contemporary Native American Paintings and Prints
Peyton Wright Gallery is pleased to present “The Indigenous Modernist Intersection: Contemporary Native American Paintings and Prints”. The exhibition opens on Friday, August 7, 2015 and continues through September 1, 2015 in our main floor galleries. There will be an opening reception on Friday, August 7 from 5 7pm. The artists featured in the exhibition are Fritz Scholder, T. C. Cannon, John Nieto, and Kevin Red Star. During the 1960s and 70s, while the United States was simultaneously waging war in Vietnam and sending men to the Moon, a number of emerging Native American artists began to fuse indigenous themes with modernist techniques, engendering an aesthetic hybrid of distinct originality. Unlike earlier traditional western painters who had sought to represent an idealized version of tribal life, this new generation of artists confronted head on the experience of being an American Indian in contemporary society with all of its inherent problems and contradictions. The unique result was the depiction of iconic cultural imagery by means of an avant--‐‑ garde painterly vocabulary, producing works whose rawness and directness pack a visual punch.

Narratives
Four Recognized Albuquerque Area Glass Artists: Jerry Barnett, Emily Brock, Sarah nelson and Marcia Newren Kilnworked Glass Sculpture Jerry Barnett states, “The inspiration for my art comes from many sources. It will then take a journey inward and –if it survives – will reemerge as a design concept or influence. My art is instinctual, with a preoccupation with balance, color and rhythm.” Emily Brock combines many different techniques to create intricate narrative. The combination of fusing, slumping, casting, and lampworking, creates a rich glass vocabulary. She received her BS from Oregon State University. Selected collections include: Columbus Museum of Art, The Toledo Museum of Art, The Hokkaido Museum of Modern Art in Sapporo, Japan. Sarah Nelson studied Art at Northern Illinois University receiving her Bachelor of Arts. Nelson states, “I think of my work as inventories of compositional lines and shapes inspired by, but not literal translations of, my drawings, paintings and photographs. I construct improvisational works that are schematic in design and invite the viewer to move into a space of speculation.” Marcia Truell Newren holds a Master Degree in Anthropology. She investigates her glass process like an anthropologist out in the field. She loves learning. Newren states, “Abstruse experiments of limited utility with inconclusive outcomes are my specialty”
