The artists participating in the "Fine Arts of Taos Pueblo" show and sale were surprised and very pleased with the large turnout of supporters and buyers during the Friday (July 9) opening reception at the Stables Gallery of the Taos Center for the Arts.
Due to still-continuing COVID safety precautions, a limited number of visitors were allowed, which made for a good-sized crowd inside and out, all waiting eagerly to see what the artists had for sale...
Writing about someone often involves taking the time to interview them, spending time with them, so you get a sense of their character, history and what they're like as an individual. But taking a photograph — while the specific act may take only seconds — can also be result of a larger interplay of ideas, some spoken, some not, that precedes the moment when the shutter is pressed.
Internationally recognized portrait, fashion, and fine art photographer Donald Graham’s new book, “One Of A Kind,” you’ll see page after page of portraits, meticulously edited by Los Angeles gallerists David and Nicholas Fahey, depicting the famous and not-so-famous, but all exuding a quality of trust behind their eyes.
The book can be purchased at Op Cit and Broadsky Books, 107 Plaza Garcia.
'Through The Eyes of Fechin" is on view at Taos Art Museum at Fechin House, 227 Paseo del Pueblo Norte in Taos. It showcases the artist Nicolai Fechin's talents with many never-before-seen paintings on loan from private collections, works from other museums, rare photographs from family archives, drawings and sculpture. It is an invitation to experience Fechin in the Taos Hacienda he built and called home from 1927 to 1933.
For their upcoming show at Wilder Nightingale Fine Art gallery owner Rob Nightingale, painter Peggy Immel and photographer Steve Immel come together for 'Immel2: New Perspectives,' their fourth two-person show at the gallery.
Their desire to depict New Mexico and the Southwest from different points of view, includes a departure from the horizontal format they have long favored to the square format which they believe lends an intimacy to familiar subjects. It is also a distinctively contemporary presentation.
'Photography is all about light: it is the physicochemical reaction between a photon of light and a grain of silver halide that permits the capture of an image on film and the printing of it on photographic paper. The obverse of light is darkness, and the interplay of shadow and light in black and white photography makes the genre unique: pure composition, less the added distraction of color."
When Moriah Stanton feels a "yes" -- the sacred kind, the kind that roots deep in the gut and begs to flower -- she follows it. Like 15 years ago when she was in living it up hot on the hospitality scene in the Hampton's, but was one day walking on the beach and had the maybe-crazy thought, 'I need to quit everything and go live with my dad.' Her father, Ed -- the Northeastern-born ex-Marine, the Cambridge-educated gallery owner and art dealer, the mystical man who came to believe wholeheartedly in the unconventional and who never held back his love -- was diagnosed with cancer the day after she moved in. Or, like, when, following her father's slow wade into death, Stanton moved back to New Mexico, the land that lived like a gem inside of her; the endless blue skies like a healing blanket, the mountains a call to calm. She landed in Santa Fe -- not far from where she grew up south of Taos on Pilar Hill.
Acclaimed art photographer, Zoë Zimmerman has lived in Taos since she was 7 years old. Her earliest memories are of the East Village of Manhattan during its bohemian heyday.
Zimmerman returned East to study at Rhode Island School of Design, and until this year, traveled frequently to the place of her birth. Much like the trope regarding Texas, you can take the girl out of the city, but you can't take the city out of the girl, she retains an edgy quality to her work, no matter the subject. Zimmerman's eye for the offbeat and the noir asserts itself like a mysterious fragrance - here now, and gone.
The Fechin Studio and Taos Art Museum have been quiet for months. Two spring shows were canceled in the wake of the pandemic, and the traditional late-summer annual gala never happened.
That all changes on Friday (Oct. 9) with an exhibition of 29 silver gelatin photographs of Taos women artists at work in their studio by Meredith Garcia.
