The DART Interview: Caleb Cain Marcus

August 3, 2019 - Peggy Rolf

In describing the world, Caleb Cain Marcus dismantles the building blocks of visual processing by eliminating perspective, scale and implied narrative. Engaging with his work necessitates no prior knowledge which forces the experience to be in the present and compels us to sense, see and feel the world in a new way. Cain Marcus' photographs are combined with layers of paint to create deep, complex and evocative color. His belief is that through color we experience pieces of the universe that otherwise could not be expressed. —Richard Nonas, from the Introduction to Iterations

Tony Berlant's latest exhibition is an explosion of color and texture

October 24, 2018 - Deborah Vankin, LA Times

Tony Berlant has been a busy man lately. The 77-year-old artist, a crucial influence in the West Coast Pop Art Movement of the 1960s, recently debuted a solo exhibition of new work at Kohn Gallery in Hollywood — and after six decades of making art, “Fast Forward” may be his most energetic show to date. The exhibition of cut metal collages — sculptural paintings, you could call them — is exploding with color and texture, in range and form. The works are blanketed with tiny, geometric cutouts bolted to wood panels with hundreds of slender, glistening sharp nails; they walk the line between assemblage, Pop Art and abstraction.

Signs and Wonders

“What makes sense to me now is to make things you’d like to keep,” says Berlant. “That’s the simple way of putting it. If you really want to keep it, then you know it’s good—it’s worth making because it’s satisfying.” Berlant, a towering figure with the gait of a retired football player, strikes a slightly imposing figure that he tempers with a measured baritone, mostly used to deflect conversations away from himself or his practice. “When you’re making collages or assemblages, things fall apart if you glue them, and I like the noise, I like hammering it,” he says.

"In a Winter Garden"

January 28, 2017

A multi-disciplinary collaboration of sculpture, dance, and music, and the culmination of Will Clift's artist residency at Stanford University.

'In a Winter Garden' is a dance performance and sculptural installation that investigates the shared signature elements of Will Clift’s large-scale sculptures, Diane Frank’s site-specific choreography, and Jarek Kapuscinski’s music: intervals of balance, imbalance, and breathed connection within an ever-shifting environment. The performance will feature both student and alumni dancers.

The Japanese aesthetic concept of “ma,” a breath-related sense of interval in time and space, runs through all three art forms in this work. Both sculpture and movement will unfold within a sonic environment; Japanese master musician Ko Ishikawa will play the score in live performance on the “Sho,” or 'mouth organ.'

February 4th at 1:30, 5:30, and 6:30p.m. Bing Concert Hall Atrium, Stanford Campus. 

Over The River Statement

January 25, 2017

“After pursuing Over The River, Project for the Arkansas River, State of Colorado, for 20 years and going through five years of legal arguments, I no longer wish to wait on the outcome. I have decided to devote all of my energy, time and resources into the realization of The Mastaba, Project for Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, which Jeanne-Claude and I conceived 40 years ago. I have been fortunate to work with many dedicated Colorado residents as well as Federal and State agencies who have been a part of Over The River. I am grateful to everyone who was part of this journey.”

Jerry Uelsmann Rocks Bon Jovi

September 28, 2016

There is a picture that has haunted Jon Bon Jovi for a while. It wouldn’t get out of his head. It was a black & white photograph by Jerry Uelsmann.

The album drops October 21, 2016 and can be pre-ordered on BonJovi.com 

A Free Public Artist Talk by Shawna Moore and Jeff Hirst

July 20, 2016

Join us Thursday July 28, at 6pm.

A Telluride Gallery of Fine Arts artist since 2010, Shawna Moore uses the interplay of materials in her encaustic work as a visual diary of her life experiences.  In the layers of her work that appear and disappear in the creative process, Moore creates a record of her own selective memory.

Jeff Hirst, a newcomer to Telluride, uses printmaking to investigate relationships between man-made architectural structure and the natural landscape, and the questions that arise when these two forces coexist in an urban environment.  

Both Moore and Hirst create work in action, their pieces shift and change with each layer of composition.  This July in Telluride, Moore and Hirst will join forces to explore the dynamic relationship between screen printing and encaustic painting, through a public, joint artist talk on July 

Also, don't miss Wax and Screen: Combining Techniques for Unique Outcomes at the Ah Haa School, July 29th - 31st.  

By creating repeatable printed designs that can then be transferred onto wax, Hirst and Moore will explain how multiple transparent layers of color and image slowly develop into a multi-dimensional, evocative work of art.

Sandy Skoglund

March 1, 2015

Sandy Skoglund at Telluride Gallery

Surreal installation artist and photographer

Exhibition opening March 5th from 5-8pm during Artwalk.

Sandy Skoglund wears many hats as a surreal artist. She designs massive installations, creates immersive environments, sculpts colorful figures and directs her own photo shoots. She attributes her leap into the visual art world to feeling as though she wasn’t normal.

In her work, Skoglund creates her own worlds by juxtaposing the mundane with repetitious "out of place" figures to create tension in an alternate reality. The human figures in her scenes are generally ambivalent of their surroundings. Her imagery brings about a conversation on political and social issues plaguing today's society.

Sally Simpson featured Artist at Ah Haa New Years Gala

December 30, 2014

Jeweler Sally Simpson spent countless hours watching her parents create metal sculptures depicting scenes in nature, which were eventually hung throughout the house or along the entryway for guests to admire. While she herself continues to be inspired to work with silver, gold, stone, pearls and other natural materials, her goals as an artist were quite different than her parents. Sally’s work is a mixture of architectural designs and elements formed from natural forces.

“Raw physical contrasts inspire my selection of earth elements, such as ocean glass, Tahitian pearls, Icelandic beach stones, silver, gold, and the organic feel and warm look of leather,” says Sally. “The theme of my work is directly linked to and inspired by the physical range of the material and the intended use.

“My current work is a combination of jewelry and a series of silver objects such as Bauhaus inspired candlesticks. I am also exploring more sophisticated methods of combining raw substances while still allowing the underlying beauty of the natural objects to create a physical juxtaposition that I find so intriguing. The challenge for me is to create new pieces using basic elements and still deliver a beautiful and unique piece of art that captures the eye and heart of the beholder.”

Sally is currently represented by the Telluride Gallery of Fine Art in Telluride

Introducing Elizabeth Garvin Fine Jewelry

November 28, 2014

Introducing Elizabeth Garvin, her goal as a designer has been to create forms with classic elegance and enduring quality, while integrating various techniques and at times parting with tradition as a part of her overall design concept. Each piece of jewelry is handmade in her New York studio. She was greatly influenced by her Architect father, and was surrounded by innovative mid-century modern design. Like a true modernist, nothing is random, unplanned or nonessential.

New Sculptures by Christian Burchard & Will Clift

November 28, 2014

Balance, Grace, & Motion is a defining element in both Burchard and Clift’s woodwork. Both artist’s work are intrinsically different however both convey a sense of elegance. Clift’s widely recognized balance sculptures transcend time periods. He makes use of traditional woodworking techniques as well as contemporary technology with the use of carbon fiber materials. “My sculptures consist of intersecting parts that stand or suspend together in equilibrium. No part is extraneous, and the delicacy of this balance reveals the fine line between weight and weightlessness, motion and stillness.” Burchard answered the call of madrone burl wood. He makes use of off casted “burls” from the veneer industry. Through a lengthy drying process he is able to create whimsical forms that defy expectations of woodworking.

View new works by both artists at Telluride Gallery beginning mid November.

Show Preview | Telluride Gallery of Fine Art: Julee Hutchison - See more at: http://www.southwestart.com/events/telluride-gallery-jun2012#sthash.XemhK6lN.dpuf

June 1, 2012 - Southwest Art - Bonnie Gangelhoff

When Julee Hutchison thinks about her new show at Telluride Gallery of Fine Art, she conjures up images of cake frosting. The reason: In a workshop, painter Peggi Kroll-Roberts once told Hutchison and the other participants that she loved the medium of oil paint because it was similar to frosting. The analogy has stayed with Hutchison for more than a decade.

For the works in her new show, titled Telluride Horizon, she let the idea rule her style and approach to the landscape. “I really tried to be more painterly, and I tried not to be so timid with the oil paint, because here is a medium that is so gooey and luscious,” Hutchison says. “I really wanted to take risks in this exhibit while being joyful and expressive.”

The artist lives about 40 minutes from the scenic town of Telluride, a popular ski resort that sits in a box canyon surrounded by steep, forested mountains. In the 28 paintings on view in the show, Hutchison captures the picturesque area in all four seasons. “We live on one of the mesas, and being right in the mountains is incredibly beautiful. But I also love the countryside—the meadows and pastures that lead up to the mountains,” she says.

For BELOW LONE CONE, Hutchison found inspiration on a quintessentially beautiful fall day last year while driving through the nearby rural community of Norwood. The light on a field was magnificent, she recalls, and the warm and cool contrasts of the scene appealed to her artistic sensibilities. She pulled over to the side of the road, snapped a photograph, and later did a study from the photo and her memory.

The show, which opens with a reception on June 27 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., is filled with such scenes—moments that have caught the artist’s eye and caused the proverbial goosebumps, she says. While Hutchison also paints figures and still lifes on occasion, the landscape speaks to her on a higher plane. “I feel like the landscape is my church, and it’s a very spiritual place for me,” she says. “That is what drives me. I feel like it elevates my heart.”

Gallery owner Will Thompson says Hutchison’s paintings never fail to delight him. “Whether it’s a landscape, a figurative piece, or a still life, her color palette, her fresh yet masterful brush strokes, and her dedication to plein-air painting succeed in giving each piece heart,” Thompson says. —Bonnie Gangelhoff
