Howard Weliver: Let There Be Light

Howard Weliver: Let There Be Light
March 4 - April 22, 2019
Location: The Encore Gallery in Taos Community Auditorium

 

 

Meet the artist at the opening reception Thursday, March 7th from 4 to 6pm in the Encore Gallery.

Artist, sculptor and graphic designer Howard Weliver works out of a 1973 25’ Tradewind Airstream, known as the “ArtStream,” on five beautiful acres in Arroyo Hondo. His “Let There Be Light” show incorporates LED-based neon shapes as a basis of abstract, street-style art he refers to as "abstreet". Opting to use alcohol-based ink mops, paint sticks and enamel-based markers over traditional paintbrushes, he creates a visual language of color, movement and excitement. The technology of the light draws in viewers, where they interact with the paintings, getting close and personal. The current works incorporate layers upon layers of colorful paint, as if they were actually left on the street for multiple artists to leave their mark, drawing the viewer deeper into the art beyond what seems like very simple neon shapes.

This exhibition will be on display through April 22nd.

Howard Weliver is currently represented at Vagrant Heart Gallery in Taos, New Mexico.
 

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.
