“ENCHANTED! by Santa Fe” at Art on Barcelona

Print

April 1 – May 13, 2016
Art on Barcelona – 107 W Barcelona St in Santa Fe, NM

The ‘land of enchantment’—and ALL of the southwest—had been beckoning to me for a very long time, inspiring numerous artworks depicting the beauty I encountered on my many visits to Sedona, AZ and Silver City, NM as well as tours of the many majestic canyons of the region.

So enchanted was I with Santa Fe that I signed a lease for an apartment on the second day of my visit in May 2014—and moved here 3 months later!

I work well under pressure, and the bare walls of my new Santa Fe home—humongous to me after 20 years of cramped NYC studio apartments—propelled an artistic frenzy: in less than two years not only have I decorated my own space, but I have more than enough ‘Santa Fe art’ available for this solo show at Art on Barcelona!

 

“Heads or Tails” Heads East!

A touch of the southwest has again arrived in New York City’s Gallery35! For the gallery’s 2015/2016 seasonal “Collection” series, I am joining 12 other artists in celebrating winter by exhibiting two of my earlier equine works—Heads or Tails and The Mane Thing.

The exhibit—The Winter Collection—opened on January 10th and runs thru March 20th. An Artists’ Reception will be held on February 6th from 6-8pm; a Closing Event will take place on March 20th from 12:30-2pm. If you are in the area, please stop by.

On Display in Santa Fe!

I am excited to be able to show—in one place— most of the art I have created since moving out west at the Santa Fe Studio Tour. I will be joining 3 other artists presenting our work in a gallery setting during the last two weekends in June.

Pictured above are details of my latest series: Time Warped Welcome: 5 pieces featuring characters from the past each standing at the distinctive—time warped— adobe wall gates so ubiquitous throughout Santa Fe.

These—along with 11 more of my New Mexico-inspired “photo renderings”— will be on exhibit at Studio 20, 1219 Luisa Street, Santa Fe, NM. on the weekends of June 20-21 and June 27-28!

New Exhibit at Art on Barcelona—Santa Fe, NM

On flights of color

I am joining four other artists in a group show entitled “For the Beauty of the Earth”—an exhibit created to coincide with the Earth Day celebration. A Reception for the Artists will take place on May 3rd at 12:30pm.

I am debuting one brand new series—On Flights of Color—created by digitally montaging my photographs of specimens of butterflies and moths paired with Santa Fe scenery and graphical elements moving through the color spectrum.

Shown congruently is my 2012 series Galapagos Duos inspired by my travels to the Galapagos islands in that same year.

Three of my most recent “Santa Fe-Inspired” works are included in a group show, “Color & Light” at Gallery35 in New York City. The exhibit opened on February 21st and will be on view thru March 21st. A closing reception is planned for March 21st from 6-8pm.

Earlier this year, I was honored to have two pieces—Social Butterfly and Shark Alert— included in the Long Island City Artists group show at the Atlantic Gallery in the Chelsea section of New York City. To see these and related works, go to my Fine Art section and click on Balloon Fiesta!

Way Out West

NM HikeThree months into my Santa Fe “sabbatical,” I am debuting my first two series—Santa Fe Icons and Balloon Fiesta! I continue to work digitally by creating an artistic spin on my photo montages.

The high desert offers artists such inspiration that  it is not surprising that Santa Fe is one of the great art centers of the world!  I am continually astounded by the many highly creative methods employed by the local art community. Visiting the many galleries continually provides me with a sumptuous visual feast!

I still plan to exhibit at Gallery35 in NYC as part of the collective’s group shows—and perhaps someday here in Santa Fe!  In the meantime, visit my website to see my latest work!

Current Exhibitions, June 2013

WebGraphicClarets MiniWebSAorg2013

Visit the Closing Reception of Emerging Visions: Art Showcase 2013 at Gallery35, 30 E 35th St, Manhattan on June 22 from 6-8pm. I am exhibiting three new works—Painting the Passage, Lion-Pecked  and Clinging Vine—in a group show with 13 other artists.

Hang Up—featuring those ubiquitous Venetian clotheslines — is currently on exhibition at Claret’s Wine Bar, Skillman Ave & 46th Street in Sunnyside, NY.

In addition to these shows, I was fortunate to participate in the well-supported Art Fair VI as a member of SunnysideArtists.org. Prints and cards of my work—especially those depicting iconic images of this Queens community—were big hits!
