His exploration of color, line, and form result in urban-inspired landscapes that can be experienced from a variety of vantage points with&nbsp;varying perspectives.&nbsp;David's push-pull compositions&nbsp;combine&nbsp;the stillness of a black and white palette with the intrigue&nbsp;of vivid color movement. Exhibition runs 11/23 - 12/6.</p> Wed, 26 Oct 2016 10:14:35 +0000 Joe Ramiro Garcia - LewAllen Galleries (Railyard) - October 28th - December 4th <p style="text-align: justify;">A highly regarded artist with a strong printmaking background, Garcia juxtaposes Pop Art&rsquo;s cultural iconography with an expressionistic, painterly aesthetic. There is a cloudy air of the familiar within the figurative elements of his painting; the wordplay associations, the blurriness of past recollection and of late-night TV, his characters and cartoons sprung from both memory and the memorabilia of the past and the present. His technical approach relies on oils, brushes, scrapers, and a hand-applied lithographic technique that forms painted surfaces which operate in a middle ground between painting, lithograph, and collage.</p> Wed, 26 Oct 2016 09:59:29 +0000 - Santa Fe Clay - October 28th - December 10th <p style="text-align: justify;">This exhibition is SFC's first community exhibition showcasing the talents of our students, teachers and studio members.</p> Wed, 26 Oct 2016 09:40:14 +0000 Christopher Colville, Kenosha Drucker, Nicholas Gutierrez, Daniel Mariotti, Zach Baltzly - Modified Arts - October 21st - November 12th <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Modified Arts</strong> presents the work of five diverse artists, working in a variety of media to bridge the gap between order and chaos in their lives and creative processes.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Following his 2014 graduation with a dual fine-arts degree in photography and printmaking, <a href="" target="_blank"><strong>Daniel Mariotti</strong></a> sought the means and motivation to continue his art practice, and that of his peers, rather than allow their skills to flounder. With this exhibition, Mariotti gathers peers <a href="" target="_blank"><strong>Christopher Colville</strong></a> and <strong>Zach Baltzly</strong>, and fellow ASU graduates <a href="" target="_blank"><strong>Kenosha Drucker</strong></a> and <a href="" target="_blank">Nicholas Gutierrez</a> for a mix of media, style and subject matter, while still creating a cohesive direction for their work.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Christopher Colville</strong> melds traditional photographic processes and experimental surfaces for haunting, yet contemporary, images. <strong>Kenosha Drucker</strong> utilizes charcoal, paint, pencil, fabric-and-wire sculpture, and drywall for dark, striking pieces eager to draw attention and viewer speculation. <strong>Nicholas Gutierrez</strong> similarly works in dark charcoals, but instead crafts a narrative in assembled works. <strong>Zach Baltzly</strong> paints over chaotic, multicolored scenes for a unified vision. And <strong>Daniel Mariotti</strong> blends drawing, photography, printmaking, and film in layers, forcing the viewer to pick apart one from the other</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Curator&rsquo;s Statement:<br /> Respite reflects on human moments; like the surface of a clear lake disrupted by a pebble breaking the surface, creating chaos that overtime slips back into its original peaceful state.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">With the combined efforts of Christopher Colville, Kenosha Drucker, Nicholas Gutierrez, Zach Baltzly, and Daniel Mariotti, the complexity of these moments are visually discussed.</p> Wed, 26 Oct 2016 09:31:23 +0000 - Chiaroscuro Contemporary Art - October 28th - November 26th Wed, 26 Oct 2016 09:19:54 +0000 Deladier Almeida - Blue Rain Gallery - Railyard - October 28th - November 19th Wed, 26 Oct 2016 09:13:04 +0000 - New Grounds Print Workshop and Gallery - December 1st - January 27th, 2017 <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Our December exhibition features an array of artists from across the globe</strong>&mdash;from Dubai to Korea, Maine to Hawaii, Australia to Mexico, this exciting show offers a snapshot of the diverse trends and techniques of contemporary printmakers across the globe.
