The Reading Art Book Club: Mauve: How One Man Invented a Color that Changed the World
The Reading Art Book Club meets next on May 11 at 2:30pm in the Las Cruces Museum of Art. The book club will have an open, group discussion on the book Mauve: How One Man Invented a Color that Changed the World by Simon Garfield. In 1856 eighteen-year-old English chemist William Perkin accidentally discovered a way to mass-produce color. In a "witty, erudite, and entertaining" (Esquire) style, Simon Garfield explains how the experimental mishap that produced an odd shade of purple revolutionized fashion, as well as industrial applications of chemistry research. Occasionally honored in certain colleges and chemistry clubs, Perkin, until now, has been a forgotten man. The museum is located at 491 North Main Street and is open Tuesday through Friday from 10am to 4:30pm, Thursday from 10am to 8pm, and Saturday from 9am to 4:30pm. For additional information, visit the website at: http://las-cruces.org/museums or call 575.541.2137.

Summer Lecture Series: Adam Field
Adam Field earned his BA in art from Fort Lewis College in Durango, CO.

He spent most of 2008 in Icheon, South Korea, studying traditional Korean pottery making techniques under 6th generation Onggi master Kim Ill Maan. In 2013 he created and premiered HIDE-N-SEEKAH at the NCECA conference in Houston, TX. In 2013, Adam moved to Helena, MT where he was a long-term resident artist at the Archie Bray Foundation for Ceramic Arts. He is now a full-time studio potter in Helena, MT.

Rashaad Newsome
This summer Tamarind Institute will host multi-media artist Rashaad Newsome. Known for his provocative work in collage, painting, performance, and video, his imagery borrows from equally eclectic sources, ranging from art history, hip-hop, dance, popular culture, and critical theory. As part of his residency, he will present a talk in the Tamarind gallery, expanding on ideas of race, capitalism, and gender that are intrinsic to his opulent and layered imagery.

As she reads her detailed descriptions and passages in her works, one can almost feel the stories come alive visually and poetically.

Priority Mail
***Opening at Farmer’s Market Shade Structure, Santa Fe Railyard*** In 1840, the first postage stamp was designed and introduced in the United Kingdom with a portrait of Queen Victoria. Since that time, numerous artists around the world have used the mail service as a springboard to create works of art. Early practitioners were Italian Futurists and Dadaists, most notably Marcel Duchamp and Kurt Schwitters. Later mail art creators included Fluxus artists Joseph Beuys and Yoko Ono. With the creation of the New York Correspondence School by Ray Johnson in the 1960s, Mail Art became a recognized art form. The once ubiquitous postcard has now largely been replaced by social media and e-mail, but Axle Contemporary will nevertheless present an exhibition of this anachronistic artform with works by New Mexico Artists Frank Ettenberg, Timothy Reed, Michael Darmody, Burning Books, and Gen Hayashida. Also in the exhibition is our own homage to California conceptual artist, Douglas Huebler, created in collaboration with his daughter, Darcy Heubler.

Tom Palmore: My Menagerie
For more than 35 years, Tom Palmore has painted animals as the subjects of portraits with characteristic wit, sophistication, refined attention to detail, and stunning technical prowess. His ultra-real renderings of animals in thousands of brushstrokes of oil and acrylic offer a unique, whimsical juxtaposition of technical literalism and magically real, imaginative context. In his new exhibition at LewAllen Galleries, My Menagerie, Palmore once again enlarges the traditions of portraiture and prods us to investigate our reactions to a painted world where the expected is upended. In this Palmore world, animals and birds willingly pause from life in the jungle, woods, mountains, back yards or alleys to pose as models for the artist’s portraits. Vastly beyond merely mimetic replicas of wildlife, the visual stories he tells are clever, intelligent, charming and provocative. They inspire the imagination, undermine the preconceived, and broaden the known into the realm of the possible, ultimately raising questions about the cultural space allotted to animals within the contemporary world. Defined by a sense of nobility, dignity, and eloquence, Palmore reminds his audience that these remarkable creatures should be regarded as partners alongside their human counterparts.

American Vista: New Work by Woody Gwyn
Woody Gwyn has been recognized as one of the finest representational painters of the contemporary art world. Known for his exquisite detail, unusually radiant lighting, and unique perspective on landscape, Gwyn’s latest body of ultra-realistic egg tempera paintings goes on view at LewAllen Galleries in an exhibition entitled “American Vista” that opens July 29 with a reception for the artist. A printed and online catalog with essay will accompany the exhibition. The cover painting for that catalog, entitled “Arroyo Hondo Apple Orchard,” is also the painting chosen by The Santa Fe Opera for the cover of its 2016 Season Program. Gwyn is the past recipient of New Mexico’s highest artistic honor, the New Mexico Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts for Painting.

Personal Reflections: Lucy Lyon and Latchezar Boyadjiev
LewAllen Galleries will present Personal Reflections, a dialogue between new bodies of work by glass sculptors Lucy Lyon and Latchezar Boyadjiev. The artists, through their handling of light, color, and dimension in glass, evoke the human figure in languages that span the representational and the abstract, the personal and the interpersonal, the idyllic and the individual.

Guilloume: Contemporary Hispanic Market Exhibition
Join us during Santa Fe’s Contemporary Hispanic Market weekend to celebrate the work of Guilloume. Guilloume’s bronze sculptures and wall reliefs are made up of simplistic human forms, individualized by stone-like patinas and subtle movements that convey a range of complex emotion. A slight tilt of the head, an outstretched arm, or graceful curve in the body are minimal movements in Guilloume’s figures that express an array of sentiments to the viewer.

Kawano Shoko
***Artist’s Reception: Friday, July 29, 5:00 – 7:00 pm. Artist Demonstration: Saturday, July 30, 2 – 3:30 pm.*** TAI Modern is pleased to announce its upcoming exhibition by Kawano Shoko. This will be the artist’s first solo show with TAI Modern. “The perfect marriage of traditional and contemporary; craftsmanship and sculpture; the past and the future,” is how 2002 Cotsen Bamboo Prize Judge, Bruce Pepich, director of the Racine Art Museum, described Kawano Shoko’s work. A master of open twill plaiting, Kawano creates intricate and elegant bamboo vessels. Seemingly one shape at first glance, the vessels subtly shift from one simple geometric shape to another. Suddenly a rectangular box becomes a globe; complicated and intricate details appear upon closer inspection. Kawano’s masterful spacing of the bamboo lends itself to making his vessels appear both transparent and solid. Lacelike weavings carry a whole new vocabulary of shape, color, space and texture, and the emotion and temperament of the artist. Kawano does not use any measuring tools, instead each strip of perfectly placed bamboo is positioned by hand, relying only on his own senses

John Axton: Lands and Seas
Ventana Fine Art welcomes John Axton to his 34th annual solo show at the gallery with an exhibition titled “Lands and Seas.” Through several stylistic periods, Axton’s mastery of the oil medium has kept him in the top tier of Santa Fe painters. The photorealistic detail of his earliest works long ago gave way to gradual increases in abstraction, allowing increased interpretive involvement in the enjoyment of his balanced compositions, nuanced color designs, and the remarkable technical virtuosity evident in his oil paintings. “Land and Seas” presents panoramas of nature’s subtle dramas, distilled to essence and interpreted through the refined eye, sensitive soul, and skillful hand of a lifelong artist. Join Ventana for the opening reception on Friday, July 29, from 5 to 7 p.m. The show runs through August 11 with representation ongoing.
