“Young Artists of Taos”
A juried and invitational art and photography exhibit.
April 27 – June 10, 2012
Reception, May 4 at 5 PM
Included in the show are Domonick Ortiz, Noah Lujan, Aiden Suazo and Lara StrangeOwl from the Taos Pueblo Day School Photo Club. These talented and dedicated young people have begun to develop a wonderful eye and appreciation for composition and meaning that shows in their work.
Jivan Lee’s exquisite paintings are crafted with pallet knives and brushes and occasionally he uses gloves, bare hands, and even dirt. His work is heavy with paint and liberal in its response to reality. Sculptor and jeweler Julie Lake has two pieces of her delicate and organic three dimensional stainless steel forms. Jessica Gaddis’s works are sculptural and whimsical with mediums of wax and found objects. Claire Cote is an instructor at Rivers and Birds, both an artist and ecologist her line drawing transfers on cloth capture the dual aspects of her interests and talents. There are two soft and dreamy photographs by Jessica Rone. Klara Wetmore’s copperplate etchings are lyrical, theatrical figures - one titled “Waking of a Fool”. Also in the show are life drawings by Aaron Garlick and Shannyn Thompson, and strong photographic portraits by Adeliza Bacus-Pace.
Please join us for a reception for the artists on Friday, May 4, 2012 from 5 PM to 7 PM
