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.

Black Mountain College: An Experiment in Liberal Arts
Besides our role as gallerists Scheinbaum & Russek Ltd also oversee the works and use of the photographs by Beaumont and Nancy Newhall. For the past twenty years some of the most requested images for publications and museum exhibitions are the images the Newhalls made during their time at Black Mountain College in the late 1940’s. We have loaned works to museums and scholars the world over from Warsaw, Poland to Los Angeles, California. It was on our return from the opening events at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles for the Leap Before You Look - Black Mountain College, 1933 – 1957 exhibition that we realized it is time to share these important works that have already been viewed the world over with our community and friends here in Santa Fe. Founded in 1933, and for the next 24 years, Black Mountain College, in North Carolina, embraced the teachings of the American philosopher John Dewey who professed “learning by doing”. This innovative school attracted influential faculty and students involved in the arts of the 20th century. Walter Gropius, a founder of the German Bauhaus, and Josef Albers, artist and teacher, brought the ideas and philosophy of the Bauhaus school and integrated them into the arts experience and curriculum at Black Mountain. Faculty included John Cage, Merce Cunningham, Robert Motherwell, Jacob Lawrence, Buckminster Fuller, as well as past Santa Fe residents Hazel Archer and Jorge Ficke.

Accidental Photography -- July 1 - 24
Opening at Farmer’s Market Shade Structure, Santa Fe Railyard, 5-8 pm, Friday July 1st. 1607 Paseo de Peralta, Santa Fe, NM Since the beginnings of photography there have been accidental photographs. Although these are most often tossed, many unintentional photographs provide a compelling but unforeseen perspective or create a successful abstract composition. Cartier-Bresson’s “decisive moment” is now indecisive in the taking of the image and the role of the photographer has moved to recognition of a successful image on the editing table. This genre of photography, Accidental Photography, has gained prevalence with the profusion of digital photographic technologies. We come across the accidental photo often with a sense of amusement or wonder and we judge it differently from other images. It may meet a criteria we had not expected, invoke a new aesthetic standard or a narrative quality; or it may act as a conceptual springboard. Can a happy accident become a work of art? The exhibition presents a selection of accidental photographs by New Mexico-based photographers who responded to our request to send us their compelling mistakes and random acts of photography Artists: Craig Anderson, Philip Augustin, Evalyn Bemis, Cary Cluett, Margo Conover, Carla Cooper, Glen Craley, Rick Fisher, Kirk Gittings, Bobby Gutierrez, Megan Jacobs, Dave Kite, Mary Kite, Marina LaPalma, Richard Lowenberg, Celia Luz, Rachel Manera, Jax Manhoff, Gabriella Marks, Tom Martinelli, Cyndy McCrossen, David O’Brien, Rebecca O’Day, Rachel Preston Prinz, Janet Russek, Ward Russell, Tara Raye Russo, Michael Schippling, Elizabeth Shores, Brandon Soder, Catie Soldan, Jon Soliday, Anne Staveley, Dianne Stromberg, Michael Sumner, Nancy Sutor, Victor Teng, Don Usner, Francesca Yorke, Joan Zalenski

Jeremy Thomas: Grown Cold
A bright red-orange square that seems to have been frozen mid-implosion. A folded flower-like form of deep purple that erupts into tortured rust. A cylinder that leaks sharp blue waves. Thomas’ sculptures demand attention. Like a shiny sports car or the glossy image of a model – these pieces insist that you notice them. But then comes the strangeness, the double-take. The twisted forms, the juxtaposition of velvet-soft rust patina with sparkling fetish-finish color, the unexpected inversion of an easy consumable into something visceral and thought-provoking. Ranging in size from several feet in diameter to smaller wall or pedestal pieces, these eye-catching forms are made of steel or copper. Thomas uses a new process of inflating his welded, folded forms cold with pressurized air – which allows him to create much larger pieces and more varied shapes than ever before. To this he adds an expanded palette, extending out from his use of automotive paints and nail polishes to include hand-mixed formulas using pure powdered pigments.

The Maya – an exhibition of Mayan artifacts and black and white photographs of Mayan ruins by photographer William Frej
Peyton Wright Gallery is delighted to announce The Maya, a transcendent exhibition highlighting the late Classic Period through an extraordinary marriage of pre-Colombian artifacts and luminous black and white images of forgotten Mayan ruins captured by photographer William Frej. The exhibition commences with an artist’s reception on Friday, July 1, 2016 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., and continues through August 31, 2016. a young adventurer, Mr. Frej passed through the Yucatan and was captivated by the majesty and mystery the Maya embodied through the colossal remains of their culture scattered throughout the jungle. Forty years later, after a life dedicated to the study of architecture and diplomatic service with its attending engagement with culture, he returned to the cradle of his inspiration. Frej transports us through compelling images that capture art as a built environment and culture manifest through an engineered devotion to gods, forgotten yet never lost. Sabacche, Chunchucmul, Pixoy and Balche are sites that stand as a silent witness to the vast enterprise and ultimate demise of the Maya. We invite you to accompany Frej on an extraordinary virtual tour of the ruins, a tour in which his vision is accompanied by prime examples of the highest aesthetic ceramic and sculptural achievements of these ancient people.

Flowers and Fields: Mary Long & Daniel Phill
Aerial views of urban landscapes that are separated by boundaries and rural fields that are isolated by fences are a consistent theme in Mary Long’s geometric abstractions. “It’s a juxtaposition of architectural grayness against expanses of happy saturated colors that inspires my work to this day,” she says. Mary Long is a self-taught encaustic artist whose use of that technique brings to her work elements that are both solid and transparent, those that are easily and immediately understood positioned next to those that are evasive and subdued. The wax medium allows her to further explore the painting in a tactile way by selectively scraping, incising and scarring; the mediums and materials are broken down only to be rebuilt and reshaped, making the work an extremely personal psychological reflection and reaction to the subject matter presented. Daniel Phill is known mostly for his botanical imagery, his paintings bear his signature bold strokes and improvised gestures and marks that are created and composed on layers upon layers of thick, wet, viscous paint on canvas. He has transformed, recreated, reimagined and evolved his unique style of blurring the boundaries of abstraction and representation.

Flowers and Fields: Mary Long | Daniel Phill
Ruhlen-Owen Contemporary’s first duo show of the 2016 season proudly features encaustic artist Mary Long and mixed-media acrylic artist Daniel Phil. Both well-established artists have experienced successful careers with Ruhlen-Owen Contemporary.

Lost and Found in Translation: New Work by Meredith McPherson-Calligraphy, Harriette Tsosie-Mixed Media Painter
****JULY 9: Hands On, “Mark Your Mark”, From: 1-3:00 PM*** The exhibition juxtaposes the artists’ works, highlighting archetypal themes and written symbols shared by ancient Chinese and Mayan cultures. McPherson expresses the ancient ideals of Zen through contemporary Chinese and Japanese calligraphy. Influenced by archaic Shang Dynasty (circa 16th-11th centuries BCE) Chinese oracle bone inscriptions, she distills the structure and etymology of ancient symbols into their essence and creates dynamic images. Tsosie exhibits encaustic and mixed media scrolls, incorporating McPherson’s finishing techniques in the non-encaustic work. She collages some of McPherson’s bold sumi strokes onto panels and superimposes her own brushwork and mark making, creating mixed media works that are simultaneously unique and collaborative. She also exhibits three-dimensional works, including a hand-made codex of Mayan symbols on amate paper and stacked cubes of Maya images and numbers. JULY 9: Hands On, “Mark Your Mark”, From: 1-3:00 PM Artists will be showing people how we make our marks and inviting the audience to make marks. Supplies will be available for the audience to play. People will be able to take home what they create

Artist Gallery Talk: Sculptor and Santero Luis Tapia
Sculptor and Santero Luis Tapia grew up in Santa Fe and began exploring the Hispano folk art of northern New Mexico in the early 1970s. He views his own carvings as an extension of that tradition with the addition of a contemporary sensibility, often touching on the religious, political, and social issues of today.

Desert Triangle Print Carpeta
Our July exhibition features an array of artists from the Southwest and Mexico—providing a colorful, lively and inventive approach to printmaking. A unique suite of 30 commissioned works on paper were created by printmakers living in the “Desert Triangle”; a culturally unique region spanning Tucson, El Paso (including Juarez and Las Cruces), and Albuquerque. The “Desert Triangle” represents the hottest, driest stretch of flyover country and the main object of this carpeta (print collection) is to exhibit fresh, exciting work both in and outside the Southwest, reminding the world that there is art in the desert. Though created without a particular theme, our carpeta has revolved to face Mexico. Living near the border, our artists feel the tug southwards, as well as the lateral influences of New York and California. Many of our US printmakers also have Mexican roots and many of our artists worked collaboratively with international print workshops to produce the pieces. Participating artists had to create a new work using a full sheet of cotton paper, 22 x 30 inches, and they worked across all printmaking media, including serigraphy, woodcut, linocut, lithography, etching and combination prints. These large prints can be seen across the room, making an architectural impact, which gives the carpeta the weight of a painting exhibition.
