AUGUST:Landscape Tapestries – Paintings by Jacob Matteson  

Born and bred in New Mexico, Jacob Matteson understands the New Mexico landscape intuitively. His vibrant, semi-abstract oil paintings are not depictions of actual places but rather snapshots of New Mexico’s ever changing scenery. They capture a moment in time such the building summer heat around noon, the moment immediately after a rain shower, the first morning light, or the temperature drop just after sunset.  

Exhibition dates: August 1 – 30, 2014

Sneak Preview: July 29 – 31, 2014

First Friday Reception: August 1, 2014 from 5 to 8PM

SEPTEMBER: Fusion – Glass and Mosaics by Laura Robbins and Lisa Chernoff

Two Placitas based artists come together to exhibit their mosaic and fused glass pieces in this exhibition. Laura Robbins and Lisa Chernoff are three-dimensional artists that gather inspiration for their work from nature. Robbins mosaics incorporate glass, ceramic, natural and man-made objects. She is committed to protecting the wildlife of New Mexico and much of her imagery includes animals, flora and fauna. Chernoff creates bold, colorful fused glass wall hangings that invoke a sense of wonder. The glass sculptures combine flowing movement, layers, and balanced asymmetry that keep the viewer entranced.  

Exhibition dates: September 5 – 27, 2014
