Timed to celebrate the unique and robust flavors of New Mexico during the 19th Annual Wine & Chile Fest comes a sultry fall show filled with whimsy and romance featuring new work by internationally renowned artist Clifford Bailey. Wine tasting with a local vineyard & tasty New Mexican hors d'oeuvres will be served.

Clifford BAILEY's highly individualized style of painting is often described as vibrant, exciting, and sophisticated. The artist captures the very energy and essence of Jazz and Jazz clubs as he puts his unique understanding of music into his uplifting and compelling compositions. The viewer is instantly swept up into the days of the Roaring 20's as well as the undeniable opulence and refinement of the 30's and 40's.

The stylized characters in Clifford BAILEY's work entertain the viewer through the artist's effective use of subtle and harmonious color and detail. One can sense the art of Clifford BAILEY's simplified, yet potent, brush strokes as he orchestrates his vignettes of swinging bands, sultry torch- singers, too-hip crooners, and even sophisticated symphonies.

JAZZ, in essence, developed as a musical style exploring and experimenting with vibrant and boldly improvisational use of instruments in an almost rebellious fashion. Clifford BAILEY has adapted this witches-brew formula for creativity to his unique brand of painting. As he says himself, Music has always inspired me. When I see the faces of people under the spell of music, I have an urge to capture their expressions on canvas. There is an emotional intensity I find fascinating. And then there is the rhythm of painting itself, the way the brush slaps and strokes the canvas, the color combinations and shapes of compositions and form; it's all music to me. -Clifford Bailey

Given his already robust following and the consistent demand for his paintings, the future seems bright for Clifford BAILEY and his artwork. And as such a popular and successful artist at this pivotal dawn of the 21st century, it is likely that Clifford BAILEY's art future may very well become art history.
