Diverse and captivating work from four northern New Mexico artists will be featured in an exhibit titled “INTERSECTION: Lens, Light, Life” at La Tienda Exhibit Space in Eldorado, July 13-August 10, 2013, with an opening reception on Saturday July 13 from 5 p.m – 8 p.m.
Work in the exhibit includes the gelatin monotype collages of Caroline Jenney who uses water- based inks applied and removed in various ways on a formed sheet of gelatin to produce a uniquely soft and ‘painterly’ image. Jenney then cuts and reassembles the images into a broader idea.
Lamy water colorist and oil painter Kathy Olshefsky brings her love of animals, particularly horses, to the exhibit on canvas and board pieces using strong, dramatic light and color. She often paints negative space as opposed to the positive, to help clarify her images.
Fran Nicholson arrived in Santa Fe in 1981 to pursue her love affair with hot metal – bronze in particular – but the invitation to participate in Intersection was a perfect opportunity to work in another favorite medium – oil paint. Her work within the show honors the canine Zen masters who inspire and enrich our lives.
Photographer Daryl A. Black has been taking pictures since she was 15. Her interests are wide-ranging and, for her, photography is a passion. She strives to reflect that in everything she photographs, from details in architecture and nature, to people.
The INTERSECTION artists will conduct an additional gathering at the gallery on Saturday, 20 July from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m., featuring the acoustic music of Caroline Jenney’s group, Blue Moon Prairie.
Exhibit hours are from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, and by appointment with the artists.
