As I See It Artful Saturday & Talk
Recently nominated for the prestigious Local Treasure of Albuquerque Award longtime Albuquerque artist and art educator Alice Webb's non-objective paintings will be on display at Weyrich Gallery during September. Through the process of painting for almost fifty years Webb has created a personal vocabulary. Icons such as the triangle, the stick or straight line, the curved line, the oval or egg and the leaf like or seed shape seem to come, go, emerge, disappear and then re-emerge in her work.

Moebius Path by Francisca Benitez with Douglas Ridloff
For her SITE Center project for much wider than a line, Francisca Benitez connects the Deaf community of Santa Fe with the contemporary art world at SITE in a piece entitled Moebius Path. Meeting at SITE at 4pm, members of the public will move to the Kenneth E. Brasel Centennial Museum, home to one of the most comprehensive collections of American Deaf educational memorabilia. Participants will enjoy a guided tour of the collection from 4.30-6pm followed by presentations from students on the history of Deaf education and the items in the collection. The mode of presentation is left up to each presenter––it may be poetic, composed of sound effects, communicated through bodily movement, or oral, translated by an interpreter. The public then walks back to SITE at 7pm, where Douglas Ridloff leads an ASL poetry slam in response to the works on display in the galleries. The evening will conclude at 8.30pm.

Real World: Recent Paintings by Kurt Solmssen
Santa Fe, NM – Kurt Solmssen is a painterly imagist who portrays a gentle and idyllic universe. His landscapes are self-confident and natural – infused with an elegant simplicity. Solmssen’s paintings are a paean to the preciousness of life’s ordinary moments. The work is generally characterized as realism but is generously enhanced by abstraction in a somewhat impressionistic manner. Lewallen Galleries opens an exhibition of Solmssen’s most recent paintings on September 30 that will run through November 6. It includes signature works by this Pacific Northwest artist known for lush atmospheric paintings that are evocative and captivating, intimate and accessible, and that woo the viewer into a rich realm of memory and nostalgia. Solmssen’s work is regarded for creating a uniquely poetic sense of personal connection: he also often incorporates people and simple architectural elements in and around his home on the Puget Sound in Washington State. His work presents a world of reality that is personal to him and yet is resonant too of a broader reality shared by many who view his art. Viewers can interject themselves into the paintings with ease.

Natural Talent: Kurt Meer and Stephen Pentak
Kurt Meer and Stephen Pentak are teamed together in this exhibition of landscapes that showcases their unique and contrasting interpretations of the world outside. Both artists create images of nature from their mind’s eye rather than work in the plein air style of painting on location. It is the strong creative techniques of Meer and Pentak that set them apart from other more traditional landscape artists. For Kurt Meer, the Mississippi River that flows through his hometown of Memphis, Tennessee, is his inspiration. “For several years I worked in downtown Memphis and watched the changing face of the river throughout the seasons, in times of drought and flooding, and under varied lighting conditions. I’ve come to know its subtleties, and while the rivers in my paintings are imaginary abstractions of water, sky and vegetation shapes, they undoubtedly go back to my memory of the Mississippi.” Meer paints loosely with a rough brush and then uses a soft brush to blend the new layer of color almost immediately after is applied. The paintings are made with thin washes of oil paint diluted with turpentine and alkyd medium. His vivid and interesting colors are achieved by maintaining transparency between the layers of paint. Stephen Pentak’s paintings are based on his maquettes; drawings inspired by nature but drafted with a conscious mind to the abstract. He is informed by his surroundings but holds fast to his freedom to create and invent space. The paintings have changed subtly over Pentak’s expansive career as he determinedly works in an extended series. This persistent image is a means to discovery, to exploring light and mastering the balance between representation and invention. Pentak builds densely forested landscapes by dragging palette knives and large brushes across a wood panel surface. Surfaces are built up of many thin layers of oil paint, pulled and crosshatched, one over another. Brighter under-layers gleam through shadowy upper layers, acting as the sun on the horizon, gliding over the edges of trees, lakes and mountains. The backgrounds are panoramic, while the foregrounds are dotted by sparse collections of trees…often birches, with their white bark formed by the delicate lines of individual bristles.

Pixels, an exhibition of new work by Alison Keogh
The exhibition will open Sept 30th with a reception from 5-7pm and run through Dec 6th at 540 S. Guadalupe Street in Santa Fe's Railyard Arts District. For her fourth exhibition at William Siegal Gallery, Keogh continues her use of ink on paper. The Pixels Series further expands her vocabulary of cropping, cutting and curating specific marks, drips and flows (often created by chance) into larger compositions. Up close, each tiny square is evidence of prior dramatic events enacted by Keogh pouring, throwing and dripping ink, while the larger assembled grids reference contemplative landscapes - each built by repetition and the careful alignment of similar marks. Keogh Writes: Pixels was founded on elements of the Ink Throw Calligraphy and Graphite Botanical series. The "Pixels" float at the intersection between grid and "picture elements". A grid, as an artificial device for organizing material, creates structure, and from it's repetitive nature generates it's own rhythm. It is a way to clarify individual elements by separation, while holding them together as a unified whole. Employing a grid has allowed me to recompose my work; this changes the way it's perceived.
