Artists of the Month: June 2018
Meredith combines her life-long love of fabric and needle crafts with her artistic vision of developing objects and materials to be reborn into new forms. She is an accomplished theatre designer and fabricator for the No Strings Theatre Company. She has exhibited her works at several local venues, including the theatre gallery at the Black Box Theatre. Her awards include Best in Show at the Las Cruces Arts Association membership show, “The world Around Us”, June, 2009 and Best of Theme for the City of Artists show, “The Ancient Ones”, July, 2009. She is active in local art associations.
Lori works with gemstone jewelry. She is originally from Chattanooga, TN, but lived in Las Cruces as a “snow-birder” for seven years until moving there full time in 2013. She has taken classes in jewelry-making in Santa Fe, NM; Asheville, NC; Bryson City, NC; Seymour, TN and Tucson, AZ. Her greatest thrill is to have someone fall in love with a piece of her jewelry and love it as much as she does.
New Gallery Artist
Alan always had the desire to create and design. Alan has a diverse background, including landscape design, woodturning, pen and ink and watercolor. Bold and dynamic use of color enhances Alan's powerful yet simple designs. Alan's signature aesthetic dances the line between realism and abstraction, traditional and contemporary. Alan's contemporary spin on traditional subject matter injects fresh energy into the art world. As a contemporary artist, there is rarely a defined path that dictates the creation of a painting. Rather, each stroke of color and direction invites the next. The hand moves the brush, but it is the subconscious mind and spirit that guide the painting into being.
In addition, the gallery artists offer art in many media, which include:
original paintings, photography, jewelry, art tile, fabric collage,
stained glass and gourds, as well as affordable note cards and prints.
