Pat Berrett captures a perfect point of stillness when a dancer&rsquo;s movement is fully extended, however he surprises us by placing the dancers in the New Mexico landscape.&nbsp; Carol Mell&rsquo;s painterly photographs manipulate light, using the passage of time to produce colorful, ethereal landsapes.</p> <p><strong>Sneak Preview:&nbsp;</strong>April 28 &ndash; 30</p> <p><strong>First Friday Artscrawl Reception:&nbsp;</strong>Friday, May 1, 2015, 5 &ndash; 8 pm</p> Tue, 21 Apr 2015 15:43:42 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list John Garrett - Chiaroscuro Contemporary Art - May 22nd - June 20th Tue, 21 Apr 2015 12:54:56 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list Group Show - Blue Rain Gallery - June 5th - June 27th Tue, 21 Apr 2015 12:53:02 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list Henry Horenstein - Verve Gallery of Photography - May 1st - June 27th Tue, 21 Apr 2015 12:44:53 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list Susan Burnstine - Verve Gallery of Photography - May 1st - June 27th Tue, 21 Apr 2015 12:44:51 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list Lara Scobie, Avital Sheffer, Sheryl Zacharia - Tansey Contemporary - June 5th - June 30th <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>&ldquo;Unconventional Con&rsquo;form&rsquo;ity: 3 Contemporary Ceramic Approaches to the Vessel Form&rdquo; will showcase the work of Lara Scobie, Avital Sheffer and Sheryl Zacharia.</em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>The fundamental vessel form is foundational to the work of each of these artists, but in no way limiting or conventional. Each consistently produces an incredibly broad range of contemporary works through brilliant variation in line, color, pattern and shape.&nbsp; Each artist&rsquo;s unique approach to combining these elements produces a consistently recognizable style all their own.&nbsp;</em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>The exhibition showcases key pieces from each artist&rsquo;s repertoire, which individually exemplify the artist&rsquo;s own style but collectively convey the theme: contemporary diversity specific to a traditional form.&nbsp;</em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em><br /></em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><a href="http://www.tanseycontemporary.com/artists/sheryl-zacharia" target="_blank">Sheryl Zacharia&rsquo;s</a>&nbsp;universally appealing works have gained considerable attention in recent years for their sense of presence. All at once they are bold, beautiful and daring yet inherently graceful and approachable.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><a href="http://www.tanseycontemporary.com/artists/lara-scobie" target="_blank">Lara Scobie&rsquo;s</a>&nbsp;work communicates a subtle but definite edge of nonconformity despite the bright playful colors and extreme proximity to the vessel form and function.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><a href="http://artists/avital-sheffer" target="_blank">Avital Sheffer&rsquo;s</a>&nbsp;works are consistently meticulous and intricately detailed, quietly and perfectly screaming individuality, efficacy and cultural significance.&nbsp;</p> Tue, 21 Apr 2015 12:39:58 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list Kathy Erteman, Giselle Hicks, Lauren Mabry - Santa Fe Clay - April 17th - May 30th Tue, 21 Apr 2015 12:33:39 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list Jock Sturges - photo-eye Gallery - April 10th - May 23rd <p style="text-align: justify;">photo-eye Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of black-and-white and color photographs by Jock Sturges, FANNY&mdash;in celebration of his new monograph of the same title published by Steidl. This stunning extended portrait spans more than 23 years, and gives witness to one woman's transition from childhood to adulthood. Photographed in the naturist community of Montalivet France, where Fanny and her family make their home, these images depict not only Fanny's physical change but also a growing rapport with Sturges, her godfather. More than anything, FANNY showcases Sturges commitment to beauty, and that images are truly a collaboration between the artist and their subject.&nbsp;</p> Tue, 21 Apr 2015 12:30:37 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list - Modified Arts - May 1st 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Over nearly 16 years of exhibitions,&nbsp;<strong>Modified Arts</strong>&nbsp;has maintained a commitment to showcasing, diverse challenging work from artists of a variety of exhibitions.

The weight of his materials is evident, as the majority of Harris&rsquo; pieces begin in stone.&rdquo;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Featured artist Paige Bradley&rsquo;s undeniable ability to capture the human form far beyond the body&rsquo;s physical is a sight to be felt. &ldquo;Bradley has her own undeniable weight of material, with her uncompromising ability to capture human form and musculature,&rdquo; says Gaspich. Bradley also feels it is dutiful to use the human body to communicate. &ldquo;We all have a human body, therefore, we can all empathize with an expression, a position, or a physical situation,&rdquo; says Bradley.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Attracted to the creation of Bronze and Sculpture, featured artist Bernard Franz&rsquo;s fascination with animals casts a welcome dynamic to the show. &ldquo;It is always necessary to look beyond the obvious first impression in order to &ldquo;read&rdquo; the message that the artist conveys,&rdquo; says Franz. &ldquo;Color, shape, composition, positioning techniques, size, expression are all components that make up a work of art.&rdquo;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&ldquo;All figurative and yet each sculptor has an entirely different take on the subject &ndash; something that truly has to be seen in person,&rdquo; says Gaspich. All are welcome to experience the Sculpture Connection and its added dimension to Greenberg Fine Art!</p> Tue, 21 Apr 2015 07:49:58 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list Fausto Fernandez, Jamie Brunson, Rex Ray - Turner Carroll Gallery - June 9th - June 30th <p style="text-align: justify;">This past year the McNay Art Museum and The Akron Museum of Art hosted an incredible mixed media show,&nbsp;<em>Beauty Reigns: A Baroque Sensibility in Recent Painting</em>, featuring thirteen emerging and mid-career abstract painters including Turner Carroll Gallery&rsquo;s very own Rex Ray and Fausto Fernandez. Themes from the show include color, pattern work, layered surface imagery, and conversation between melancholy and the sublime.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">As <em>Beauty Reigns </em>concludes in May, Turner Carroll Gallery is excited to feature select works from the show in addition to those in our own collection. This unique show will pop and glow with a range of colorful urban and sophisticated works. Often, museum level contemporary art is perceived as brooding, intimidating, or aloof. Turner Carroll believes contemporary art can also make life better, happier, and more optimistic. With <em>Glow: Excerpts&nbsp;</em><em>from Beauty Reigns</em>, we celebrate museum quality contemporary art that is flamboyantly confident, exuberant, and beautiful, while awing the viewer with the artists' undeniable mastery and skill. Join us this June to celebrate the bold and the beautiful and to commemorate the incredible work of Rex Ray.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Fausto Fernandez is a mixed media collage artist originally from El Paso, whose works include a variety of bold canvas pieces, public art, and community engagement projects, including an installation at the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. Fernandez&rsquo;s intricate urban works explore the relationship between nature and technology as they intersect with human behavior. Fernandez&rsquo;s studio creations are colorful, geometric mixed-media collages on canvas that depict dissected images of flowers, tools, machines, aviation renderings, and image transfers. Fernandez recently concluded his Border Art Residency program in La Union, New Mexico and will be part of the Las Cruces Museum of Art&rsquo;s summer exhibition <em>Here and Now</em>. Fausto spent his first twenty-five years in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico and in 2001 received a B.A. in both graphic design and painting from the University of Texas at El Paso.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Jamie Brunson is a painter, teacher, critic, and independent curator originally from Coronado, California with a background in painting from both Mills College and California College of the Arts. Her vibrant, abstract paintings are based on her ongoing <em>kundalini </em>meditation practice. In the Veil and Chakra paintings she translates the physical and perceptual experiences of meditation practice into formal visual language. The movement, blurring, and interaction of Brunson&rsquo;s brush strokes create a bold yet soothing dialogue that challenges our perception of time and space. Brunson&rsquo;s layering process suggests that her strokes continue off the service of the canvas through infinite planes. Jamie has exhibited in various exhibitions including solo shows at the SFMoMA Artist Gallery, and the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Rex Ray (1956-2015) is a mixed media collage artist and graphic designer based out of San Francisco, California. Rex&rsquo;s bold mixed works combine themes of architecture, geometry, and pop culture through his process of layering hand cut paper and print work. Ray contrasts brilliant bold colors and abstract geometry to create one of a kind biomorphic and explosive compilations. Originally from Germany, Rex received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1988 and has continued to show his work in the Bay Area ever since. His graphic design career flourished as he created imagery for Apple, Sony, and &ldquo;Bill Graham Presents&rdquo; concert posters. Though Rex is no longer with us, his memory lives on in the beauty and originality of his work. Turner Carroll is humbled to share bold and beautiful works from Rex Ray&rsquo;s life and honor him as an incredible artist and friend.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">For more information, please contact Erikka James at ejames@turnercarrollgallery.com or call the gallery at 505.986.9800.</p> Mon, 20 Apr 2015 16:48:18 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list
