<p>'Am i Alone' by Beej nierengarten-Smith on display at Gallery 72 </p> What Comes Natural

The current exhibit Human I Nature at Gallery 72, personal, exotic and complex, is a must-see for art aficionados seeking a distinct woman’s point of view in three parts.

 Seasoned artists Minna Resnick, New York, and Beej Nierengarten-Smith, Santa Fe, are both involved with processes involved with lithographic printing.  A counterpoint medium to the hung work is offered by local ceramic artist Liz Vercruysse, who...

<p><em> Something Old, Something New

Not many artists have approached the challenges and contradictions of making art quite as astutely as Colin Smith.  There is experimentation with materials and process and he creates his art taking into account space and form.  Through a multilayered application of paint, pigments and resin Smith is able to create a consciousness within his pieces and a depth to his work that draws the viewer in and allows them to...

<p> ‘Three Times a Lady’

When life hands you lemons, make lemonade. When a Costco dumpster hands you a fairly large amount clear mannequin torsos…

<p> Mind of the Beholder

Painting can be a lot of things:  colorful, resilient, meaningful, puzzling at times and extremely personal.  But it is seldom boring. The signs, symbols, images and colors on a flat surface hold our attention and at moments have us at a dazzling balance between our emotions and our reason.

An Accidental Artist

When Mexican artist Humberto Chavez says, “I don’t believe in reality,” he’s not merely being coy. He is being true to his muse and his roots.

Like many artists, Chavez is simply saying that objective reality doesn’t exist. Yet reality for him is more than just a philosophical conundrum of perception; you know, the one about the tree falling in the woods?

Group Benefits, Ltd

Without a strong curatorial guide, group art shows must rely on their diversity as well as the quality of their work in order for individual pieces to stand out. The current show at Hot Shops is no exception as four artists compete for attention in this very diverse exhibit.
