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.

Future Tense: Marked Existence in the Contemporary Landscape
Co-curators Traci Quinn and Stefan Batista will lead an informal conversation about the social, political and psychological undercurrents that exist in the photographs of Future Tense. Recognizing the complex nature of the human / global condition, this talk asks visitors to explore photographs as moments, journeys and thought provoking metaphors that implicate our Present Tense; a time marked by a great shift in a world that has grown urgently interconnected yet increasingly divergent. The evident existence of humans in the contemporary landscape will be explored at the intersections of visuality and aesthetics in photography. This event is part of PhotoSummer, now in its second year. PhotoSummer is a collaborative initiative that represents and actively promotes historical and contemporary photography. Taking the rich legacy of photography in New Mexico as a point of departure, the exhibitions and public programs around PhotoSummer represent the continued energy and support of the photographic arts in the region. PhotoSummer features photo-based programming through exhibitions, talks, workshops and more to highlight the very best of photographic practice and scholarship.

Michael Post & Heiner Thiel: Vicissitudes of Color
Works by German artists Heiner Thiel and Michael Post defy the proscriptions of either medium, arcing and lifting off the wall in unexpected ways. However, as the title of their show suggests, these dynamics of form and structure all serve the end-goal of exploring color, in all of its vicissitudes. These unusual forms serve to unbalance the viewer and thereby open them to seeing color in a whole new way.

Connie Connally: Place in Time
Connie Connally paints beautiful canvases of complex elegance, with imagery that merges harmoniously and nearly completely both representational reference and powerful abstraction. In Place In Time, an enthralling exhibition of new artwork opening August 26th through October 2nd, 2016, Connally explores sensory worldly experience through kaleidoscopic, expressionist abstraction. Connally’s poetic colorscapes, with their expressive brushwork, sweeping gestural marks, and animated cadence reflect the artist’s passion for distilling the essence of her observations of nature and situate her work as the vital interplay between memory and imagination. Her palette of organic color and calligraphic brushstroke combine to serve as imprint of the artist’s profound love of being in nature and the desire that her painting reflect both her exterior and interior experience of it. Citing Joan Mitchell as an important influence on her work, Connally employs exuberant, impassioned colors laid on her canvases in a pictorial strategy that teeters between the action painting of her abstract expressionist forebears and a more refined personal style that modulates the strokes and dabs that comprise her surfaces. Her layers of brushstroke read less as agitated ruptures and more like intuitive, sensual experiences rendered as prismatic atmospheres of color and tone. Rich, multi-layered surfaces of sun-drenched color morph, Connie Connally: Place in Time Artist Reception: Friday, August 26th, 5 – 7 pm Exhibition Dates: August 26 – October 2, 2016 Gallery Hours: Mon - Fri, 10 - 6; Sat, 10 – 5 LewAllen Galleries 1613 Paseo de Peralta | Santa Fe, NM 87501 505.988.3250 www.lewallengalleries.com Press Contact: Alex Gill agill@lewallengalleries.com Connally, Changing Places I, 2016, oil on canvas, 50 x 52 in Connally, Meeting Place, 2016, oil on canvas, 34 x 34 in 1613 Paseo de Peralta Santa Fe, New Mexico 87501 tel: 505.988.3250 info@lewallengalleries.com www.lewallengalleries.com coalesce and scatter in quietly energetic rhythms that evoke the experience of being surrounded by the sights and sounds of nature.

Jason Salavon: All the Ways
In All the Ways, Salavon explores the innate malleability of data. Often working with massive amounts of data in the millions, he uses the medium almost like playdough. While still representational, the data is squeezed and pushed out into its various different forms. Abstracting and transforming nontrivial amounts of data, Salavon is able to redeploy shared cultural capital, like The Simpsons. Glasstire’s Michael Frank Blair notes Salavon “recognizes what corporations have known for some time: that when culture feeds itself into large reservoirs of data, there’s a host of new, wonderful and terrible things we (and others) can do with it. The artist seems to be on our side in this case. He slices up, compiles, reshapes and reanimates this material in an effort to get at a bigger picture of our culture at large and an outside view to its structure and scale.” With the piece Master Index, Salavon condenses all 5 million of Wikipedia’s individual articles into a listicle, giving the observer a post-internet look at the collective human id. Ranked by frequency of visit, we can see that Adolf Hitler (#19) ranks one above the Wikipedia entry for Game of Thrones (#20). Sandwiched between Human Penis Size (#44) and Sexual Intercourse (#47) is September 11 (#45) and France (#46). While Dog and Snoop Dogg share neighboring spots at numbers 205 and 206 respectively. Both a look into greater cultural consciousness and an all human knowledge contest for rank, Hyperallergic concludes “the list speaks to our collective desire for bits of knowledge, our need for specific information to guide school projects, solve temporary brain lapses, and settle heated debates. It’s an ordered representation of our information obsession.”

Georges Mazilu & Mavis McClure: Morphy’s Law
Romania, during the rule of harsh dictator Nicolae Ceausescu, was like living with Dracula in charge. The barbaric, uneducated Ceausescu actually had the blood of young boys transfused into his own body, bringing the Dracula legend eerily to bear. Georges Mazilu grew up in Sibiu Romania--a region of Transylvania, during the rule of Ceausescu. His life was one of shadows and fear, until he escaped Romania and found refuge in France, where he still lives today. His extraordinary skill has resulted in his paintings being included in esteemed museum collections in Eastern and Western Europe and the United States. Though Romanian history is dark and oppressive, it possesses an art history that is rich and beautiful. Golden icon paintings and ornate monasteries grace the countryside. Consequently, artistic training in Romania is highly rigorous, with 9 years of schooling. The first four years focuses on the human figure; the last five years focuses on a specific media of choice. Thus, Georges Mazilu was trained as a realist, portraying the human figure. After mastering realism, Mazilu “morphed” into an abstract painter. For several years, his works were purely abstract assemblages, with the final forms somewhat anthropomorphic. Today, Mazilu’s paintings display perfectly blended fusions of abstraction and stunning realism. He combines his magical realist style with the European Old Master palette, creating a masterful fusion of old world and dream world. Mavis McClure’s stylized, iconic figures of humans and animals draw inspiration from iconic Greek sculpture. Exaggerated scale of hands and feet, morph the human into superhuman. As Greeks idealized beauty and human nature, so does McClure idealize the contemporary figure.

Thomas Frontini • Modern Ruin
Richard Levy Gallery is pleased to present Modern Ruin, paintings by Thomas Frontini. His current body of artwork combines detailed images with atmospheric backgrounds. The dreamlike imagery balances contemporary objects with historical influences. His paintings explore magic in the mundane and draw from his subconscious. Frontini’s palette and technique are directly influenced by his Italian heritage and Italian art history. Immense landscapes stretch out around intricately painted flora and fauna. Tiny scenes of futuristic habitats dot thickly painted cliff faces and clouds. In a carefully measured vagueness, Frontini’s paintings address not only the seen world, but a world of puzzling fantasies.
