ArtSlant - Recently added en-us 40 Jacob Matteson - Matrix Fine Art - August 1st - August 30th <p>Born and bred in New Mexico, Jacob Matteson understands the New Mexico landscape intuitively. His vibrant, semi-abstract oil paintings are not depictions of actual places but rather snapshots of New Mexico&rsquo;s ever changing scenery. They capture a moment in time such the building summer heat around noon, the moment immediately after a rain shower, the first morning light, or the temperature drop just after sunset.</p> <p><em>&nbsp;</em></p> Thu, 10 Jul 2014 20:59:32 +0000 Roseta Santiago - Blue Rain Gallery - August 1st - August 16th Wed, 09 Jul 2014 17:08:54 +0000 Maria Martinez - Mark Sublette Medicine Man Gallery - August 8th - August 24th <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;">Mark Sublette Medicine Man Gallery Santa Fe will feature a show and sale of over 70 pieces available by Maria Martinez and family including Popovi Da.</span></p> Wed, 09 Jul 2014 17:07:54 +0000 Steve Schapiro - Monroe Gallery of Photography - July 5th - September 21st <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">One of the most respected American documentary photographers, Steve Schapiro has photographed American history, and the fractured fabric of contemporary American life, over the last five decades. The list of people Steve Schapiro has photographed during his career reads like a Who's Who of the most influential politicians, celebrities and newsmakers in contemporary American history.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Steve Schapiro discovered photography at age of nine at a summer camp. Excited by the camera's potential, he would spend the next decades prowling the streets of his native New York trying to emulate the work of the great French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson. Schapiro was a disciple of the great photographer W. Eugene Smith, and shared Smith's passion for black and white documentary work. From the beginning of Schapiro's career, he had already set a mission for himself: to chronicle the "American Life". His career in photography began in 1960 with personal documentary projects on "Arkansas Migrant Workers" and "Narcotics Addiction in East Harlem". Schapiro became involved in many civil rights stories including the Selma March and covering Martin Luther King; he traveled with Bobby Kennedy on his Senate campaign and Presidential campaign; and did photo essays on Haight Ashbury, the Pine Ridge Sioux Indian Reservation, and Protest in America. He photographed Andy Warhol and the New York art scene, John and Jacqueline Kennedy, poodles, beauty parlors, and performances at the famous Apollo Theater in New York. He also collaborated on projects for record covers and related art. As picture magazines declined in the 1970's and 80's he continued documentary work but also produced advertising material, publicity stills and posters for films, including, The Godfather, Rambo, The Way We Were, Risky Business, Taxi Driver, and Midnight Cowboy.</span></p> Thu, 10 Jul 2014 10:28:40 +0000 John Axton, Jennifer Davenport - Ventana Fine Art - July 25th - August 6th Wed, 09 Jul 2014 09:07:14 +0000 Jaime Chase - Matthews Gallery - July 25th - August 8th <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Jamie Chase has been a fixture of the Santa Fe art community for over 30 years. His long career informs his work, each canvas a link in the evolutionary chain. In his new exhibition <strong><em>POV: New Paintings by Jamie Chase</em></strong>, opening with an artist reception on Friday, July 25 from 5-7 pm and closing August 8, the artist presents a stunning array of perspectives culled from a lifetime of looking and creating. It&rsquo;s Chase&rsquo;s complex point of view&mdash;his &ldquo;POV&rdquo;.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">&ldquo;The path of an artist is&hellip; the telling of the story,&rdquo; Chase says. &ldquo;Revealing a dialogue between interior perception and exterior reflection.&rdquo; In the acrylic painter&rsquo;s well-known figurative works, female nudes float through abstract fields of color, their surroundings reflecting their emotional experience. Chase&rsquo;s newer series of abstracted landscapes drops the viewer directly into&nbsp; these color fields, allowing us to experience firsthand the profound feelings of his figures.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">This exploration of multiple perspectives&mdash;inner and outer, intuitive and reasoned&mdash;has sent the artist on journeys both real and imagined. Chase grew up in San Francisco and embarked on a self-guided art tour of Europe as a young adult. By the 1980s when he moved to Santa Fe, the young artist&rsquo;s head was spinning with classical influences, from the flattened figures of Ancient Egypt to the abstracted nudes of Nathan Oliveira.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">&ldquo;In terms of inspiration, Jamie likes to think of himself as part of the long, winding path of art history,&rdquo; says gallery owner Lawrence Matthews. &ldquo;When it comes to the emotional worlds of his muses, however, he fearlessly forges new trails.&rdquo;</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><em>POV: New Paintings by Jamie Chase </em>is a continuation of both journeys, a fresh viewpoint on a long, storied life in art.</span></p> Wed, 09 Jul 2014 14:20:38 +0000 - Mark Sublette Medicine Man Gallery - July 25th - August 25th <p>Early Native American jewelry of the finest turquoise including Lander Blue, Number 8, Bisbee, Blue Gem, Morenci and Turquoise Mountain.</p> Wed, 09 Jul 2014 08:27:54 +0000 Robin J.
