Additions to the Store!
I am pleased to have added to the on-line art store Art of Santa Fe. I have now uploaded the Scenes of New Mexico Greeting Card collection, a popular selection at the Sunday Market, so it is now available to seekers on line. Culled from my Autumnal Haiku Series, this collection comprises five collage images of scenes in autumn in northern New Mexico. From the backyard to mountain vistas, these colorful cards capture the bright hues and lively atmosphere on this unique corner of the American Southwest. Whether you are a native norteño, a visitor wishing to bring a memory home, or a faraway dreamer longing for the high plains and mountains of New Mexico, this collection is sure to please.
I have expanded my selection of journals. These blank, lined notebooks are ready for you to record your dreams and memories and hopes for the future, featuring my own collage designs on the cover.
I write in my journal every morning, and I wanted to make the opportunity beautifully available to everyone. Makes a nice gift too! Three designs are available: Loosen Your Soul, Musings, and the new one, Reverie; and can be purchased at the Market on Sundays.
A couple of friends from the old neighborhood, River Forest in Illinois, came to visit family in Santa Fe, and they made of seeing all my current shows – in Los Alamos, Espanola, and Santa Fe. They called it the “Collage Homage”. What larks!
More Shows Coming
This week I also heard that I have the “green light” on a solo show at the Portal Gallery. This will feature my collages of stars, planets and galaxies and will debut mid-January 2019. More on that in the months to come.
Meanwhile, you can find me cutting and pasting at the Santa Fe Railyard Artisans Market on Sundays. I am still working on my Coral Reef Series – although I will take time out to work on my piece for the Exquisite Corpse show (October, Santa Fe.)
Peace and Love,
Spring winds have wafted to me three simultaneous shows! Art work never shown in New Mexico before is now on display in three separate locations.
The first to open was the Spirit Lines show in the Fuller Lodge Art Center in Los Alamos, New Mexico. This is a group show exploring the concept of Wabi Sabi – finding the beautiful within the broken. I was very pleased to have four pieces accepted into this show. The exhibit opened on March 23, to the beautiful sounds of a Celtic harp. The reception was well-attended, and I was excited to be in the presence of such moving art and their creators. The show ends on May 5.
Last week was the opening of my solo show in the Convento Gallery of the Northern New Mexico Regional Arts Center, in Espanola, New Mexico. I have 15 originals on display as well as framed giclee prints. And very pleased about an 8-page newspaper article in the Rio Grande Sun, with plenty of photos of my work; they are giving this newspaper with every purchase. A classical guitarist played 2 hours of melodious Beatles music. Old friends and new came to view the art, most of which had not been formally exhibited before, and I was able to tell stories about each picture. Prints, posters and cards are available in the Convento gift shop. This show closes on April 30.
Already up and on display is the Bistro Show at Fire & Hops in Santa Fe. Five of my largest and most serious pieces are on display in one room at this upscale pub. I plan to have an informal celebration at Fire & Hops on Monday April 16, at 5 pm. Everyone is invited to stop in and see the art; great beers and ciders are on tap. The art will be on display for a few months.
Meanwhile I am cutting and pasting away at the Santa Fe Railyard Artisans Market, and offering for sale prints, posters, cards, and original collages. I am exploring the possibility of presenting a workshop on creating collages soon, looking for the appropriate venue.
Peace and Love,
