Artists of the Month: February 2018
Sue Ann Glenn
Sue Ann, a unique watercolorist, brings life to ordinary objects and scenes. Sue Ann holds an Art Education Degree from Central Michigan University. She taught elementary school art for 15 years in a large Michigan school system. After 32 years of teaching, she retired to focus full-time on her watercolors. She has participated in juried local shows and has Signature Status in the New Mexico Watercolor Society.
Arlene J. Tugel
Arlene, a twenty-year resident of Las Cruces, has lived in California, Oregon and Washington. In 2010, after a 36-year career in Soil Science, she rekindled a childhood desire to pursue art. Arlene studied painting and drawing with numerous artists; Jan Hart and Joyce Hicks inspire her use of color. She prefers watercolor and watercolor collage and has earned several awards at juried art shows and plein air competitions. Arlene achieved “Signature Member,” a lifetime award for excellence in painting, with the New Mexico Watercolor Society in 2015. She is happiest painting plein air (outdoors) in the wide-open spaces of the West.
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.
