One of the most artistically gifted Japanese bamboo artists of his generation, Morigami Jin is credited with introducing a new style of basketry to his region. His work is light and open but retains a complexity that implores the viewer to investigate it. Trailing Clouds is a basket in the technical sense; however, it uses non-traditional weaving and bold colors to delineate undulating ripples of madake bamboo. In Galaxy II, Morigami uses hexagonal plaiting to create a topographically rich sculptural form. In this exhibition, Morigami takes the opportunity to play with scale – creating his classic basket designs at double the usual size and combining discrete sculptures into sprawling diptychs and triptychs.

[Short] Assemblages: New and Retrospective [LONG]Jan Ernst Adlmann is a Santa Fe resident well-known as a former museum director and curator, lecturer and writer, whose strange and wonderful sculptures have attracted a strong following over the last decade. Adlmann will present both new work and a selection of past favorites on loan from some of his collectors.
[SHORT]Artist's Reception: Friday, November 20, 5:30-7:30[LONG]Ku pairs a sexually-frank wit with uncanny tableaus featuring solitary reveries and mysterious social rituals enacted by an array of id-dominated young adults and children. Her graphite, ink and watercolor drawings are characterized by vital and expressive linework, exquisite detail, and a judicious application of color and pattern. This exhibition coincides with the artist's invitation to create a limited-edition lithograph at the University of New Mexico's Tamarind Institute.
[LONG]"Elsewhere the sky is the roof of the world; but here the earth was the floor of the sky." --Willa Cather, Death Came to the Archbishop Curator David Hundley, an independent design consultant and the exhibit designer for the show "Hearst the Collector" at LACMA, sees Whitaker's works play out in front of him every day in New Mexico. Linda Whitaker's oil pastels were created in 1985-86 and 1990, when the artist was the recipient of two residencies from the Helene Wurlitzer Foundation in Taos. Rendering the shapes and colors in a style reminiscent of early modernists such as Marsden Hartley and Arthur Dove, Whitaker's powerful landscapes remain fresh and vital.
[LONG]The three artists in this exhibition each use media and techniques associated with textiles but conceptualize their work in a way that blurs and redefines traditional understandings of the 'canvas.'
[LONG]Katherine Lee's paintings transform familiar settings into scenes at once familiar and unnerving. In 2006, the artist spent a semester in Brazil studying art and language. During her time abroad, she produced a series of imagined landscapes using a signature combination of spray paint, transfer paper and oil paint. The resulting images, entitled "Exteriors," depict spaces of suspended action and endless possibility, unmanned but not abandoned.
[LONG]Minidoka is Shimomura's fourth series of paintings about the internment experience of the 120,000 American citizens and residents of Japanese descent who were held under military guard after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Shimomura's clean, flat style, drawn from American comic books and Japanese ukiyo-e, draws viewers in with its pop art appeal, before confronting them with bold, pointed tableaux of racism and ignorance.
[LONG]Robert Fantozzi, Flor Garduno, Graciela Iturbide, Rachelle Mozman and Rene Pena. This exhibition brings together a group of artists from Mexico, Peru, Panama and Cuba whose photographs explore their subjects' connections, both expected and unexpected, to their cultural and geographical context.

[SHORT]Larsen explores minimal sculpture and the detritus of consumer culture in his first solo exhibition at Eight Modern. [LONG]Larsen's evolving exploration of the detritus of consumer culture and minimal sculpture reaches a remarkable culmination in his first solo exhibition at Eight Modern. Larsen transforms salvage material into intimate, evocative forms that he calls constructed objects. Larsen, a longtime resident of Santa Fe, was awarded a grant from The Pollock-Krasner Foundation earlier this year.
[SHORT]Nancy Youdelman explores the threads that connect memory and objects with her mixed-media sculptures, assembled from vintage clothing and found objects. [LONG]Nancy Youdelman has been transforming vintage clothing with found objects - photographs, letters, jewelry, buttons and even plant material - for close to 40 years, ever since her involvement with the CalArts Feminist Art Program and Womanhouse in the 1970s. Youdelman's mixed-media sculptures and reliefs explore the threads that connect memory and objects, interweaving broader themes such as love, death, history and femininity. Artist Reception: Friday, April 11, 5:30-7:30
[LONG]This solo show focuses on three-dimensional computer graphics on aluminum and paper produced by Davis from 2004 to 2007.
This solo exhibition of works by Efren Candelaria features an array of minimalist graphite drawings on wood veneer and paper as well as a multi-media installation. The artist eschews geometric perfection for the inevitable curves and bumps of freehand drawing, and takes inspiration from ideas about numbers, time, space and seriality.
[SHORT]A group exhibition featuring works of art inspired by fairy tales. [LONG]With works by Jessica Abel, Jim Dine, David Hockney, Peregrine Honig, Fay Ku, Ted Larsen, Elizabeth "Grandma" Layton, Adela Leibowitz, David Levinthal, Paula Rego, Kiki Smith, and Richard Tuttle. This exhibition illuminates and challenges the traditional interpretations of fairy tales. Stories heard in childhood exert a powerful pull on the artists participating in Once There Was, who take on the powerful role of storyteller. Their modern reworkings of old tales draw upon familiar narratives and imagery for their cultural resonance.
Featuring works by Ramona Sakiestewa and G. Peter Jemison, two of the United States' most celebrated Native American artists, this exhibition specifically confronts issues of cross-cultural communications and interdisciplinary practice. Artists' Reception on August 17, 5:30 - 7:30 pm
