Prints and Pastels

Prints and Pastels
February 4 - June 27, 2016
Location: The Historic Taos Inn

 

 

Opening Reception is Thursday February 4th, 4PM to 6PM at The Historic Taos Inn.

 

“TCA Exhibits” at The Historic Taos Inn presents “Prints and Pastels” by the Angie Coleman and Ann Huston. This is a breath taking exhibition of two of Taos' prominent artists who quietly pursue their art with passion, humility, and excellence. Both artists work in various media, however in the public eye Ann is recognized for her pastels and Angie her prints. Their works are different in tone, color, and technique, yet in very subtle ways their art is similar. Looking closely at the subject matter you will see that their landscapes are centrally focused. They both draw you into their landscapes leading you to some place unknown. The obvious difference in their landscapes is that Ann's are softened with a veil of soft subdued light and Angie's is awakened with brilliant light.

Painting with pastels is Ann's form of meditation: it is going to a place of calm and quiet strength. She takes inspiration from our Northern New Mexico landscape, the high-altitude light, and the mysteries and stories surrounding old places. She see her paintings as quiet studies of one's inner and outer self; of dreams and emotions. There is always a space that contains a story and there is always a path that leads to a story. The solitude and peace that we all seek is found in the magic of Ann's work.

Similar to Ann, Angie's inspiration for her imagery comes from hiking and camping in the mountains of New Mexico and Colorado. She takes photos of nature scenes and depending on what her visual brain dictates she then employs her creative license to add a mountain or a house. Angie uses the age old technique of woodblock printing. Woodcuts are relief prints. The image is printed from the raised surface of the woodblock or what remains after the background has been carved away. Many of Angie's prints are created using a reduction method that involves only one block that is carved and printed, then re-carved and printed; each time with a different color and a limited number of times. The editions are hand-pulled and each image has subtle variations due to the individual nature of the process.

Both artists have lived in Taos for decades and often banter about their longevity, their love of the landscape and the never ending fodder it offers for their creative inspirations. The are both recognized and collected locally and nationally. They have had many exhibitions and are found in museums collections including the Harwood Museum of Art.

 

These events are planned for TCA’s various venues: the auditorium, Encore Gallery, and Stables Gallery. Most events, but not all, are sponsored by TCA. Submit your TCA event here.
