This selection of photographic work, both historic and contemporary, invites visitors to revel in the pleasures of the miniscule. Featured are a small selection of nineteenth-century photos that provide a historical grounding for an engaging group of work by six contemporary artists who work on a small scale, including Susan R Goldstein, David Janesko, Jenna Kuiper, Jan Pietrzak, Liz Stekeete, and Laurie T&uuml;mer.</p> Mon, 26 Sep 2016 16:36:39 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list Mira Burack, Kelly Eckel, Shaun Gilmore, Dara Mark, Signe Stuart - New Mexico Museum of Art - October 15th - December 4th <div class="ap-whitebox-body description"> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">The &lsquo;Alcoves&rsquo; exhibitions are a distinctive feature of the New Mexico Museum of Art. <em>Alcoves 16/17</em> is a series of seven rotations over the course of a year which will include thirty-five artists in total from across New Mexico. Each rotation will include five artists who will show for seven weeks,</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">The Alcove exhibitions can be traced back to founding of the Art Gallery of the Museum of New Mexico, now the New Mexico Museum of Art. Small one-person exhibitions were held in the gallery alcoves through the 1950s, resuming in the mid-1980s and early 1990s. In 2012 we revived the Alcove tradition as artist-centered showcases to feature new ideas, artists at all stages of their careers and artwork that is being made in New Mexico right now.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">When the New Mexico Museum of Art was established in 1917 our building was designed in a style to celebrate the historic architecture of New Mexico. Unusually for that era, the museum was created to exhibit artwork contemporary to the time. At that same time artists were solicited to come to New Mexico to see, capture, and interpret the remarkable landscape and culture of the region. Many of the artists who came at that time and exhibited here at the museum now form the historic core of our permanent collection.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">New Mexico continues to draw artists to live and work here.. To celebrate the artists who work in our state, and in anticipation of the of the Museum&rsquo;s upcoming centennial, we are presenting a year-long cycle of Alcove exhibitions.</span></p> <h3 style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><em>Alcoves 16/17 #1</em> features the art of Bonnie Lynch, Gloria Graham, Scott Anderson, Scott Greene and Herb Lotz from&nbsp;March 5-April 24, 2016</span></h3> <h3 style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><em>Alcoves 16/17 #2</em>&nbsp;features the art of Philip Augustin, Stephen Davis, Katherine Lee, Walter Robinson and Jack Slentz from&nbsp;Friday&nbsp;April 29 - Sunday June 19, 2016</span></h3> <h3 style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><em>Alcoves 16/17 #3</em>&nbsp;features the art of Christina Dallas, Tom Joyce, Eliza Naranjo Morse, Heidi Pollard and Cecilia Portal&nbsp;from&nbsp;Friday June-24 - Sunday August 14, 2016</span></h3> <h3 style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><em>Alcoves 16/17 #4</em>&nbsp;features the art of Sally Anderson, Sheri Crider, Robert Drummond, Michael Namingha and John Vokoun from Saturday&nbsp;August 20 - Sunday October 9, 2016</span></h3> <h3 style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><em>Alcoves 16/17 #5</em>&nbsp;will feature the art of Mira Burack, Kelly Eckel, Shaun Gilmore, Dara Mark, and Signe Stuart&nbsp;from Saturday October 15 - Sunday December 4, 2016</span></h3> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">(Free public opening October 14, 5:30-7:30pm)</span></p> <h3 style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><em>Alcoves 16/17 #6</em>&nbsp;runs from Saturday December 10, 2016 - Sunday January 8, 2017</span></h3> <div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">(Free public opening December 11, 10:30am-12pm)</span></div> <h3 style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><em>Alcoves 16/17 #7</em>&nbsp;runs from Saturday&nbsp;February 4- Sunday March 26, 2017</span></h3> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">(Free public opening February 3, 5:30-7:30pm)</span></p> </div> Mon, 26 Sep 2016 16:31:50 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list - Wilder Nightingale Fine Art - October 2nd 1:00 PM - 4:30 PM <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Join us with some really good cake ( Frosting lovers beware ) and some really Fine Art.</span></p> Mon, 26 Sep 2016 08:17:23 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list Richard Tuschman - photo-eye Gallery - September 16th - October 29th <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Once Upon a Time in Kazimierz&rsquo;s</em> colorful tableaux depict an episode in the life of a fictional Jewish family living in 1930&rsquo;s Poland. Focusing on the theme of loss, <em>Once Upon a Time in Kazimierz</em>&rsquo;s dreamlike and poetic vignettes describe scenes of sacrifice, grief and family tension, but are also punctuated with moments of love, longing and tenderness. <br /><br /> To achieve his cinematic style, Tuschman seamlessly combines live models with meticulously detailed doll-house size dioramas giving him full control to direct each scene &mdash; a process the artist pioneered in his previous series <em>Hopper Meditations.</em> <br /><br /> &ldquo;The project is my attempt to visually weave together narrative fiction with strands of both cultural and family history &hellip; It is my hope that in this way, the pictures in<em> Once Upon a Time in Kazimierz</em> reflect the fleeting, fluid nature of both memory, and of dreams.&rdquo;&mdash;Richard Tuschman</p> Mon, 26 Sep 2016 08:11:42 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list Tony Vaccaro, Group Show - Monroe Gallery of Photography - September 30th - November 20th <p style="text-align: justify;">A major exhibition of iconic moments in history as captured by the leading photojournalists of the time. September 30 - November 20, 2016</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">"History In A Moment" mines the depth and breadth of Monroe Gallery's archives and is combined with new, never-before exhibited photojournalism masterpieces, from the early 1900's to the present day. The photographs in this exhibition are as much a history of American photojournalism as they are a history of the changing face of the latter part of the Twentieth Century. Through the images captured in these photographs, the eyes of a nation were opened as never before to a changing world.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Historic images featured in the exhibition include the Wright Brothers&rsquo; first flight, scenes of migrant workers in the 1930&rsquo;s and the Great Depression, searing war and conflict photography from World War II, Vietnam, 9/11, and the Iraq War. Historic political campaigns are represented, as are key moments in the civil rights struggle from the 1050&rsquo;s to the present day.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The exhibit includes several photographs by 93-year old Tony Vaccaro. This Fall, the documentary film &ldquo;Under Fire: The Untold Story of Private First Class Tony Vacarro&rdquo; will premire at film festivals nation-wide. The film tells the story of how Tony survived the war, fighting the enemy while also documenting his experience at great risk, developing his photos in combat helmets at night and hanging the negatives from tree branches. Monroe Gallery is the exclusive representative for Tony&rsquo;s work and &ldquo;History in a Moment&rdquo; presents Tony&rsquo;s historic photographs to the gallery public for the first time.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The unforgettable images in this exhibition are imbedded in our collective consciousness; they form a sort of shared visual heritage for the human race, a treasury of significant memories. Many of the photographs featured in this exhibition not only moved the public at the time of their publication, and continue to have an impact today, but set social and political changes in motion, transforming the way we live and think. Looking at the pictorial documentation of such extraordinary events we often get the impression that we are feeling the pulse of history more intensively than at other times. Although often not beautiful, or easy, they are images that shake and disquiet us; and are etched in our memories forever.</p> Mon, 26 Sep 2016 08:06:09 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list - Modified Arts - October 7th 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">Following in the tradition of such excellent exhibits as <a href="http://modifiedarts.org/events-and-exhibitions/we-got-power-punk-david-markey-jordan-schwartz/" target="_blank"><strong>&ldquo;We Got Power,&rdquo;</strong></a> <strong>Amy Young</strong> returns to Modified Arts with <strong>John Rose</strong> of <strong>The Record Room</strong> to showcase what made punk rock special to Phoenix.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This exhibition offers a look at the exciting punk rock, new wave, and refreshingly weird bands that formed and were active from the late 1970&rsquo;s to 1985.

In <em>Place In Time</em>, Connally explores sensory worldly experience through kaleidoscopic, expressionist abstraction. Connally&rsquo;s poetic colorscapes, with their expressive brushwork, sweeping gestural marks, and animated cadence reflect the artist&rsquo;s passion for distilling the essence of her observations of nature and situate her work as the vital interplay between memory and imagination. Her palette of organic color and calligraphic brushstroke combine to serve as imprint of the artist&rsquo;s profound love of being in nature and the desire that her painting reflect both her exterior and interior experience of it.</p> Mon, 26 Sep 2016 07:44:27 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list Group Show - LewAllen Galleries (Railyard) - August 26th - October 2nd <p style="text-align: justify;">Comprised of new work by twelve of the world&rsquo;s leading glass artists, this exhibition initiates elemental dialogues between voices that explore the conceptual, political, expressive possibilities of glass sculpture, just as glass itself encapsulates, radiates and transforms light. This show coincides with Glass for the New Millennium, a museum exhibition at the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, California which features sculpture by many renowned artists whose work will also be highlighted in <em>Artem Vitro</em>.</p> Mon, 26 Sep 2016 07:42:49 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list Kurt Solmssen - LewAllen Galleries (Railyard) - September 30th - November 6th <p style="text-align: justify;">Kurt Solmssen is a painterly imagist who portrays a gentle and idyllic universe. His landscapes are self-confident and natural &ndash; infused with an elegant simplicity. Solmssen&rsquo;s paintings are a paean to the preciousness of life&rsquo;s ordinary moments. The work is generally characterized as realism but is generously enhanced by abstraction in a somewhat impressionistic manner that woo the viewer into a rich realm of memory and nostalgia.</p> Mon, 26 Sep 2016 07:40:20 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list Peter Burega - Hunter Kirkland Contemporary - October 7th - October 23rd <p style="text-align: justify;">Santa Fean Peter Burega is known for his energetic abstracts that take their inspiration from the landscapes he photographs during his many travels throughout New Mexico and around the world.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">He distills the vastness and power of nature into a densely compacted expression of emotion that&rsquo;s almost hypnotic in its effect on the viewer. The complex interplay of colors, bold and soothing, creates a dynamic tension between excitement and restfulness that mirrors his own intense emotional response to life&rsquo;s inherent contradictions.</p> Thu, 29 Sep 2016 16:57:39 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list Jack Balas, Munson Hunt, Perla Krauze, Laszlo Thorsen-Nagel, Hans Sieverding - Gebert Contemporary - 558 - September 23rd - October 22nd Mon, 26 Sep 2016 07:31:23 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sfe/Events/list
