Where the Buffalo Roam: Artist Angel Wynn opens new show that focuses on the majestic bison, an American icon.
Local artist and photographer Angel Wynn will present America’s most treasured icon of the west in a solo gallery show this summer entitled Where the Buffalo Roam. Where the Buffalo Roam will feature bison roaming their traditional landscapes, this animal’s historic survival from extinction, and how America’s First Nations used all parts of the buffalo for food, clothing, tools and more. “I mixed the artwork and photography up a bit by using historic illustrations and narratives to make the exhibit more informative," says Wynn.

Needles & Seams: Marina Brownlow, Kay Khan, Merce Mitchell, Judy Tuwaletstiwa
In the world of visual art these days, processes and materials run wild. No longer is a work of art most likely to be an oil painting or a bronze sculpture. Artists use any material and every process imaginable. In Needles & Seams, four artists engage with some of our most ancient processes, sewing, felting, and knitting. These series of textile works reach out to an elemental and primal place inside of us where we have related to fabric and cloth as a source of clothing and shelter for millennia. Textile artists Marina Brownlow, Kay Khan, Merce Mitchell and Judy Tuwaletstiwa share their work as contemporary artists in this exhibition in the Axle Contemporary mobile gallery.

"(Un)Real” Featuring: Michele Bubacco, Angela Fraleigh, David Humphrey, Martin Mull and Claire Sherman
***Gallery Discussion: The (Un)Real World with curators Mary Dinaburg and Howard Rutkowski, Saturday, August 1 from 2:00 PM to 3 PM*** The exhibition, (Un)Real, debuts the gallery’s figuration program and introduces 5 new artists to our roster – Michele Bubacco, Angela Fraleigh, David Humphrey, Martin Mull and Claire Sherman. These artists all start with familiar imagery or situations as a point of departure. Then, each takes it in a different direction, using their unique approaches to painting and imbuing the works with conceptual content that challenges our point of view. This presentation and the work of these artists is less about representation, but more about the history of painting and cultural and conceptual parallels with abstraction. Not only are these paintings and this exhibition visually aesthetic on the surface, but the artworks make the viewer ponder the story and history behind each, providing much more than visual depth.

Peter Bremers Reflections from the West: Canyons and Deserts
Dutch artist Peter Bremers’ internationally renowned cast glass sculptures are characterized by their rich earth-hued tones, angular structures, and intricately cut channels. The works in Bremers’ Canyons & Deserts series, which comprise this show, essentialize and evoke the austere and awe-inspiring landscape formations across New Mexico, Utah, Arizona, and Colorado. Using gestures of the hand to approximate the visual effects of erosion and stratification, the series proposes a dynamic contrast between human and geologic time. According to Bremers, these forms are not so much about representing landscape, but rather, “it’s about finding yourself reflected in the environment.” Bremers’ many travels across Asia, New Zealand, Africa, America, and Antarctica are the foundation for much of his work. A journey he undertook to the Antarctic in a deep-sea sailing vessel in 2001 first inspired the innovative kiln-cast glass technique of his series Icebergs & Paraphernalia, and the more recent Canyons & Deserts series, which concretize the artist’s experiences and memories of transcendent landscapes, inner voyages, and transformative hues of red, orange, and yellow. Following that revelatory expedition, he drew on over thirty years of experience as a sculptor and glass blower, and intensive study of the properties of glass, color, and light, to develop the kiln-fired technique that produces his unique aesthetic. This unusual method was first mastered by Czech glass artists in the early 20th Century and involves making a full size model in wax, clay, or industrial foam. A plaster mold is made of the original form and filled with glass or crystal. Inside a kiln, the glass melts and takes on the form of the model. After weeks or months of cooling, the glass form is carefully removed from the plaster and then ground and polished into its final form.

Woody Gwyn: Solitary Places
With a riveting body of new paintings on view at LewAllen Galleries beginning July 31, Woody Gwyn celebrates his 50th year of exhibitions of his striking work created from masterful combinations of space, light and color rendered in oil, egg tempera, watercolor and other media. In his virtuosic landscapes, he combines faithful allegiance to “painting things the way they are” with a uniquely uncanny way of looking at those things and presenting them as though the depiction is entirely natural and seemingly unlabored. However, upon closer examination, one quickly realizes that these works are no ordinary pictures of place. Instead, they appear to glow with a nearly heavenly light and the total absence of any human presence conjures an intensifying sense of mystery the longer one looks. It becomes clear that these works are achievements of enormous artistic creativity and technical mastery. Unusual perspective and the vivid crystalline light combine with an extraordinary facility for rendering the elements of his landscapes in agonizingly minute detail to create contemporary paintings that rival even those of the great European Old Masters. With these techniques, Gwyn produces vistas that are both arresting in their verisimilitude and profound in their allusive meditative, even transformative, power. His latest body of work, Solitary Places, brings together expansive, glistening ocean views, tranquil lakeside reflections, curving desert roads, majestic bridges, and endless skies – all of which exemplify Gwyn’s seductive skill in visually uniting intimacy and immensity. A stillness and lack of human or animal figures contrasts mystically with the liveliness imbued from Gwyn’s sumptuous color and light to create an aura of nearly spiritual significance and seamless beauty.

Tanaka Kyokusho
***Artist’s Reception: Friday, July 31, 5:00 – 7:00 pm Bamboo Demonstration: Saturday, August 1, 2:00 – 3:30 pm.*** TAI Modern is pleased to announce its upcoming exhibition, Tanaka Kyokusho. This will be the artist’s second solo exhibition with the gallery. Tanaka Kyokusho, one of Japan’s most highly esteemed bamboo artists, presents a body of work that features elegant designs and the artist’s signature palette of lustrous black and warm gold. Tanaka’s work gracefully synthesizes sleek modern aesthetics with meticulous traditional craftsmanship. A variety of minimal forms, including trays and vessels, reflect a subtle geometric impulse that is softened by supple curves and accents of dexterous plaiting. Throughout this body of work, aesthetic tension—between light and dark colors, between elegant forms and ornamental patterns—echoes the structural tension of the bamboo architecture.

Paula Castillo and Alison Keogh
William Siegal Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by Paula Castillo and Alison Keogh. The show will open July 31, 2015 with a reception from 5 - 7pm, at 540 S. Guadalupe Street in the Railyard Arts District. Paula Castillo: "Imagine the countless hours of intake that will never possibly be experienced: the eyes of every human on a single subway ride in uptown Manhattan, the number of needles on a Ponderosa pine in the Pecos, the momentary dune patterns in the gypsum sand in the Tularosa basin. Imagine the infinitesimal number of points, atoms and sources none of which are ever a starting point. After all, the extremity of a vector is always oriented towards some other end. Alison Keogh: "My work is a dialogue with the natural world. Collaborating with uncertainty, working with stillness and immediacy, I act with the intuitive processes of my body: breathing, awareness and gestures to reveal the experiences that have settled and compressed with time.

Let's Talk Blue
WEFTA: Water Engineers for the Americas. A Santa Fe, NM based Non-profit organization. Last March 22nd, Santa Fe’s observation of World Water Day included a site-specific public art - video installation by Marisela La Grave aka Magnetic Laboratorium at the Santa Fe Railyard Water Tower (Pasatiempo , March 20-26, 2015). The area around the water tower was bathed in blue LED light and served as the backdrop for two video projections addressing current global water issues. The visual content included images taken directly by engineers from Water Engineers for the Americas’ projects in Bolivia, Honduras and Mexico. The installation included a series of black and white moving text, both informative and conceptual on why water is such an important topic. One of the two video projectors was directed at a fixed frame under the Water Tower, the other projection went straight across the train tracks onto the new Violet Crown Cinema building wall. The result: An impressive display once the night sky was dark (see images). If you missed it the first time, on July 31st there’ll be another chance to see the installation entitled: LET’S TALK BLUE at VERVE Gallery of Photography. The images of the work of WEFTA throughout Latin America underscore the focus of VERVE Gallery’s summer exhibition, Cause & Effect. In addition to the original video installation, there will be recent film of WEFTA’s work in Honduras and some surprises from the world of WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene). Water engineers will be on hand to provide explanations.

Judy Breedlove & Ray Ortiz “Watercolorist”
Painting it is not about what I see at first glance, it is more about the emotional connection I have to my subject. The form is the language the content the voice. As artist's we are here to share our gifts with others, it is a valuable healing experience for both the creator and the observer. Ray Ortiz – Watercolorist Ray’s work shows that the seemingly delicate medium of watercolor can be bold, rich and dramatic. he shows others how to view the everyday world in another way by taking what is not first noticeable and bring that into focus to give the viewer a new perspective. To understand and see beauty and simplicity within complexity.
