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.

Passages: Douglas Fryer
Solo show: passage noun a section of a work of art, especially one that contains transitions The above definition completely expresses the work found in Douglas Fryers's newest landscapes. Making us aware of the spatial and formal reality of his subjects, the artist reinforces an understanding of composition and form. Exploring methods to break up and strip down the subject, then reconstruct it in new and perhaps surprising ways, there is a suggested reality to his paintings. Through the suggestion of the passage of time and the relative states of motion and stillness, Douglas represents nature by reflecting on his perceptions, experiences and values while also contemplating the important power of symbol and abstraction.

John Chang / Carol Gove
Mill Contemporary presents a pairing of recent works by John Chang and Carol Gove. The work of John Chang is an interpretive and deconstructive use of Chinese characters. Chang was brought up in Shanghai, China and later immigrated to Boston to live and study. The stark contrast Chang experienced living between these two cultures has been a strong influence on his work. This newest collection, Chang says, accentuates the visual and human aspects of the characters, the mark, the gesture, the performance, in order to transcend the text and the medium, extracting from the language a meaning beyond its surface value. Chang works with the aesthetic nature of the language as it’s written in concert with abstract gesture and a deeply contrasting black and white palette in order to challenge the rigid and subordinate quality of the process by which the Chinese culture and language is traditionally taught. He seeks to impart an intuitive meaning upon the viewer that can span cultures. Carol Gove is preoccupied by the emotional quality that can be achieved by the combination of gesture and collage. Typically the objects that the artist repurposes into her works come to her from moments in the lives of people she is close with, giving her work a profoundly unique and personal touch. She plays with the concrete and relatable aspects of recognizable elements such as newspaper clippings, letters, mechanical schematics, in combination with the more expressive qualities that her palette of brilliant colors and broad gestures provides to create a visual environment which, in her words, “gives the viewer a ‘glimpse’ into a common history in order to remind them of their own memories.”

La bella jardinera
Working in his studio on the Mediterranean coast in Valencia Spain, renowned artist Alberto Gálvez creates timeless paintings that interpret the ideals of the classical European tradition in fresh and contemporary ways. Alberto Gálvez paints oil on linen using the renaissance technique of grisaille, where translucent glazes of color are applied 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 timeless. In this exhibition, La bella jardinera, Gálvez he found himself drawn to the great tradition of Enlightenment and Victorian botanical illustrators and painters, particularly the works of Elizabeth Blackwell, Marianne North and Edith Holden. By combining their botanical images on the faces for which he is known, Gálvez is paying powerful tribute to these artists and celebrating the enormous contributions of women to the arts and sciences.

Artist Gallery Talk: Artist Rose Simpson
Artist Rose Simpson’s interest in lowriders comes from growing up in Santa Fe and at Santa Clara Pueblo near Española, the lowrider capital of New Mexico and arguably the world. Simpson created her own black-on-black lowrider, Maria (named for artist Maria Martinez) and uses the cars in some of her work to shift boundaries of culture and gender.

Song of the west: erin currier
Song of the West represents a cross section of Erin's works that have been directly inspired and informed by New Mexico: its unique and strong cultural traditions and its people. The subject of Nuevo Mexicanos is a thread that has run through many of Erin's previous solo exhibitions, in the form of works such as Guadalupe, Miss Navajo Nation, Fiesta Queens, and the Santo series which includes regional figures present and past: such as, respectively, Bernadette Lopez, and Geronima Cruz Montoya-- P'otsunu. However, there has yet to be an exhibition mounted that is wholly devoted to erin's New Mexico themed works-- until now: in the form of Song of the West. "For the past decade and a half, the underlying theme of all of my work has been that which I have found to be true in all of the countries I have traveled to: that our commonalities as human beings far outweigh our differences. Divisions are often either superficial or artificially created based on racial, economic, and national ideologies. Where we are similar is of a more profound metaphysical caliber: the bond between brothers, the love between mother and child, the kinships shared through creative endeavors; these run like threads in the great fabric of generations. My use of trash and discarded packaging, written in every language, gathered from every continent, further expresses our affinities-- in what we create, value, share, consume, and cast away. Song of the West is a series of portraits comprised of the above materials that speak to the interconnected nature of New Mexico's local triumphs and struggles with those of the larger world."

Kenneth A. Licht
Kenneth A. Licht large watercolor paintings Kenneth A. Licht was born the son of an architect, from whom he learned to draw, on 12/24/23, in Englewood, NJ. He cartooned in high school, and won a full scholarship to Tyler School of Fine Art of Temple University in Philadelphia, PA. Receiving a Master's in Education from the University of Arizona in Tucson, AZ, he developed a love for the southwest. Moving to the east coast once more, he became a professional architectural renderer for Ferno, Kempa and Schwartz in New York City, NY. It was from teacher Robert Schwartz, and later Dong Kingman of the West Coast, that Kenneth refined his watercolor technique. He soon went on to establish his own business in architectural illustration, and during his lifetime did more than 3,000 renderings for architects. But his love remained with fine arts, and he works in almost all mediums: oils, pastels, tempera, alkyd, ink, pencil, silver jewelry, sculpture and boxes of found objects in the style of Joseph Cornell. Watercolors are a great favorite. At the time of his death in February, 2016, his collection consisted of 534 paintings and 220 found object box sculptures. He has had numerous one-man shows and his box constructions are in the Bergen Museum of Art and Science, in Bergen County, New Jersey.
