TURNER CARROLL GALLERY, Santa Fe NM.

Crossing Boundaries I February 2- February 24, 2018

This exhibition is inspired by Dr. Lowery Sims’ exhibition curated for 516 Arts:  A Contemporary Museum, titled The US-Mexico Border:  Place, Imagination, and Possibility. In a time when national identification is in the forefront of discourse, it is compelling to explore paintings by artists like Fausto Fernandez, who are literally from–and part of–two worlds.  Fernandez is part of Mexico as well as the United States.  His painting crosses boundaries of media and meaning.  Yet, his paintings are gloriously beautiful, and regardless of whether we identify Fernandez as a Mexican, American, Mexican/American, or American/Mexican, his paintings touch our souls in a way only art can do, and they enhance our civilization.

Please come see them in person, from February 2-24 at Turner Carroll Gallery.

Opening Reception Friday, February 2, 2018 from 5 to 7pm
[n.b. that this event takes place in Santa Fe]

Dress Matters: Clothing as Metaphor. October 18, 2017-February 18, 2018.

 

Dress Matters: Clothing as Metaphor examines clothing in art as symbols of power and identity. Artists use garments to address interpersonal issues and conditions as well as to relay stories and raise issues about gender, age, history, society, race, and culture.
