Harwood Museum of Art

Judy Chicago collaborated with more than 150 needle workers between 1980 and 1985 to create dozens of images combining painting and needlework that celebrate the birth process—from the painful to the mythical.

Hecho a Mano

Ian Kuali’i is a multi-disciplinary, self-taught artist of Hawaiian and Apache ancestry working in the forms of large-scale hand cut-paper, murals, prints, and site-specific installations. From a single sheet of paper using only an xacto blade as Kuali’i’s tool, his detailed hand-cut paper portraits, journal entries and scenes are masterfully rendered with a blend of loose urban contemporary techniques. “One can’t erase a razor line so the process teaches me to be patient and gentle while at the same time…

Richard Levy Gallery

In the Project Room, the gallery presents Your reversed Berlin sphere, an interactive sculpture by critically acclaimed artist Olafur Eliasson. Typical of his work, this sculpture plays with viewer perception. As the circular element transitions from yellow to blue, depending on the time of day and the position of the viewer, the glass acts as both a mirror to your reflection and a prism to the world outside. Eliasson currently has a solo show at the Tate Modern in London.…

Vivo Contemporary Gallery

Ilse Bolle’s new fiber constructions are a fascinating combination of mixed media and sculpture. A clever interplay of traditional and unconventional materials present a refreshing illustration of conviviality in art and life. Using paper she makes by hand, twigs she harvests from the local landscape and waxed linen thread, Bolle constructs a simple, strong sculptural form. Found pieces of rusted metal, ubiquitous in the arroyos around Santa Fe, are then added to the composition. The juxtaposition of natural and man-made…

Harwood Art Center

Plates Against Patriarchy is a female organized pottery project that celebrates the resilience of women and endeavors to give voice to women’s stories. By combining visual arts and storytelling, they create thought-provoking pieces that speak to the everyday fight it is to be female. Women too often find ourselves sharing stories of the objectification, misogyny, and sexism we experience. Rather than let these conversations remain unheard, Plates Against Patriarchy decided to utilize their collective skills and strength to create a…

September 6 - October 27

Obscura Gallery

Obscura Gallery is thrilled to present our Fall solo exhibition by gallery artist Brigitte Carnochan and her new photographs inspired by the poems of Emily Dickinson. Brigitte Carnochan and Emily Dickinson share a passion for flowers that inspire both their mediums. Brigitte’s career has centered around the sensuality and beauty of botanicals and nudes, and in this new work, she circles back to her original subject matter of nearly four decades ago when she began by painting on her gelatin…

Patina Gallery

Known as a Santa Fe artist who continually uses design sensibility to arrange her works of adornment, Claire Kahn brings her knowledge to exhilarating life. With careful attention to pattern and progression, she strings a mosaic made of cylindrical Japanese seed beads from which she conceptualizes (and crochets) a palpable expression to wear on the body. Between the earth and the sky lives the human experience. The grace within us matures over time and evolves into our best selves. This…
