"MOON WEARY" (MIXED MEDIA COLLAGE) by SUSANA GARDNER
Location: Library-Pygmalion, Second Floor

SET OF THREE HANDMADE MINIATURE BOOKS by SUSANA GARDNER
Location: Library-Pygmalion, Second Floor

ONE OF A KIND FALLEN ANGEL WEE BOOK (FEATURING MY POEM "HELEN") by SUSANA GARDNER
Location: Library-Pygmalion, Second Floor

Susana Gardner's sensibility is among the most enchanting I've encountered (they work differently, but Susana's delicate charm kinda reminds me of the enchantment in Lisa Solomon's works, one of which is also in the collection). So I'm very pleased to welcome some of Susana's Etsy works (check out her Dusie's Etsy link for more!)...and very honored that Susana created a"one of a kind fallen angel wee book" from my poem "Helen". As an environmentalist, I also like how Susana uses fragments from making books and chapbooks to continue to make new works, like the miniature book set. Susana's Dusie is self-aware indie-publishing! Thanks Susana!

"HOLDING ONTO BROKEN TIME" (CLAY, 15" x 22" x 14", 2006) by ROXANNE SWENTZELL
Location: TBD

Whew! We have been following the art of Roxanne Swentzell for years!! But her works -- particularly her clay sculptures -- are in such high demand that we never managed to acquire one...until this week!

Hahn Ross Gallery in Santa Fe held a lottery for art collectors interested in Roxanne's five available clay works. Interested collectors put in their names, and during Roxanne's opening there this week, names were drawn out of a hat (so to speak). Apparently, out of 48 names, our name was pulled FIRST, which meant we also had first choice among Roxanne's works.

We chose "Holding Onto Broken Time" -- isn't she glorious!!!

"YEI PRESENCE" (1995) (MONOPRINT) by TONY ABEYTA
Location: Family Room, Pygmalion-First Floor

SECOND MENTION DUE TO UPDATE:

Tony Abeyta is wrapping up an exhibit at Blue Rain Gallery in Santa Fe; get there this week if you can as I think they're taking down the show but the pieces still may be around. It's a lovely exhibit, with two large works whose making -- according to a 30-second video made by Tony's son -- evokes Jackson Pollock's actions as he created his works.

"SPLASH" (2003) (MIXED MEDIA, 5 X 5 IN) by LINDA GEARY
Location: Galatea Offsite/San Francisco Apartment

[SECOND MENTION DUE TO UPDATE]

UPDATE:


Linda Geary just had what looks like a successful exhibit, "Out of the Blue" in Otranto, Italy (curated by Lily Wei). Thanks, Linda, for sending a lovely exhibition catalogue. The catalogue includes an essay by Kenneth Baker; here's a cool excerpt:

A startling thought pulses from the colors and brilliant stainbacks -- fairly reminiscent of psychedelic art -- in a piece such as "Violet Camouflage"; the thought of tears as a source of the water in which the pigments disperse.
