Over our 20 years in business, Blue Rain Gallery has made it a point to keep track of artists whose artwork we admire and feel is of exceptional and unique quality, even though they are not currently on our permanent roster. As such, we decided to pursue our first Invitational Show of visiting artists, to be featured during the month of April 2013, with an artist reception on Friday, April 5th, from 5 to 7pm.
True to the gallery’s vision of presenting diversity in the arts, this premier Invitational Show will debut nine artists, working across a variety of media including paintings, works on paper, and sculptures. Blue Rain Gallery is proud to introduce them each: Lorenzo Chavez (regional landscape pastels), Susan Contreras (figurative/allegorical paintings), Dallin Maybee (works on paper), Andrea Peterson (paintings), Robb Rael (figurative & landscape gouaches), Ed Sandoval (regional landscape paintings), Kay Walkingstick (works on paper), Suzanne Wiggin (landscape paintings), and Holly Wilson (sculptures and mixed media).
These artists are dynamic and experienced, each one presenting a distinctly personal view of nature, the landscape, and humanity. It should come as no surprise that most of these artists have been well-recognized in their fields, their artwork having garnered long lists of awards and inclusions in prestigious museum exhibitions and permanent collections.
We invite you to discover these artists at our ground-breaking show here at Blue Rain Gallery in Santa Fe, NM this upcoming April.
