    True West

    01 Jul 2021 – 02 Aug 2021

    Slate Gray presents True West by Felice House for July Art Walk. Felice House is an Austin, Texas based painter and Associate Professor of the Department of Visualization at Texas A&M University. Carrying her study of human nature and the Western genre through art in a new direction, House has created iconic landscape paintings of West Texas. She seeks to inspire awe in the viewer and remind her audience of their role as stewards of the land.Taking her lead from the Group of Seven Canadian landscape artists and those affiliated with them, specifically Tom Thompson, House’s paintings use the idea of heightening the neutral colors and expansive space of the desert landscape to draw the viewer into the contemplative space of her work. By using broken brush marks, she captures the ever-changing light that dances across mesas, rocks, and desert plants, thus providing a fertile ground for visual and spiritual exploration.

    Women of the Faraway

    04 Mar 2021 – 31 Mar 2021

    Slate Gray presents ‘Women of the Faraway,’ in homage to Georgia O’Keeffe’s trailblazing impact and her love for “The Faraway,” a romantic term O'Keeffe used for Northern New Mexico, Slate Gray is featuring a group show of women artists from New Mexico. Intricately beaded skulls by Ali Launer, the lyrical abstract paintings of Bette Ridgeway, and Alexandra Eldridge’s photo-based paintings exploring the subconscious. Martha Rea Baker’s richly textured paintings, Kathryn Tatum’s mountain abstracts and Telluride landscapes on rice paper, and last but not least, Amy Van Winkle’s encaustics embedded with depth and metaphors of her inner landscape. Through this exhibition, we want to recognize the contributions of contemporary women in the arts from New Mexico; women who interpret the beauty and mystery of the Northern New Mexico landscape through a variety of viewpoints, styles, and media, paying direct homage to the landscape through styles and media or simply absorbing the beauty and diffusing the inspiration into nonrepresentional works.

    James "Dusty" Pendleton | Nocturne

    11 Jun 2020 – 09 Jul 2020

    Twilight draws me into it. Dark seems to embrace me in the way that Marc Rothko would have understood. In the Hill Country, I find that the erosion of time is a metaphor perhaps of my own life. Think of it: an ancient sea bed, layers upon layers of the fossils of various sediments thrust upwards to the surface and then eroded so that there are rough and rugged hills, sporting Juniper forests and wildlife, gradually being worn down to boulders, rocks, gravel and finally a chalky white Caliche dust. I can put all of that in one image and populate it with someone whom I may have seen 60 years ago, but remember just how they looked, how they moved and quite often, just how they moved me.

    Assorted Works by Lisa Lebofsky

    27 May 2021 – 28 Jun 2021

    In partnership with Camp V of Naturita, CO, Slate Gray presents Assorted Works by Lisa Lebofsky for Mountainfilm Art Walk. Lisa Lebofsky is a nomadic plein air painter, collaborating with nature and people. She paints the susceptibility of nature, correlating its restlessness with our own human vulnerabilities. Her direct participation with the landscape is vital to imbue a painting with the energy of a specific place, so that viewers can connect viscerally: to move, excite and engage them. Lebofsky is completing an artist residency at Camp V, where she will find inspiration in immersing herself in the environment and culture of Southwestern Colorado. Seeking out areas around the globe that are particularly susceptible to the impacts of climate change, Lebofsky will meet with residents to discuss how their community is impacted, while creating a new body of work with subject matter inspired by the landscape surrounding Naturita, CO. Lebofsky will be in attendance for the Mountainfilm Art Walk opening.

    In Your Element

    06 Jan 2020 – 31 Jan 2020

    Slate Gray presents In Your Element for January Art Walk, an exhibition featuring Kathryn Tatum and Martha Rea Baker and their latest bodies of work. Tatum, a local to Telluride and Taos, NM, explores and compounds her adoration for the San Juan Mountains in her latest series featuring backcountry shoots and extreme terrain seen from Telluride Ski Resort. “I have always been humbled by the extreme above tree line landscape surrounding the Telluride Ski area and never really knew how to capture its respectable beauty until now.” Tatum’s works combine acrylic paint, interference paint, charcoal, and rice paper on canvas in an unprecedented application of the mediums. Baker’s works are similarly influenced by nature, citing the home of her studio, Santa Fe, and the beauty of the surrounding elements as direct inspiration and solace during a challenging year. This beauty brought her deeper into her element, creating a body of abstract expressionist work intricately layered and encompassed with warmth and vibrancy of color. Martha has also added the process of mixing Gamblin cold wax medium with oil paint to achieve a rich textural surface. This mixture has proven excellent for expressing the passage of time and its effects on our environment.
