This is @kylepshivers ending day 3/5 of my takeover with a photo from the magical Carlsbad Caverns National Park. The sheer scale is mind-boggling and difficult to accurately capture in a photo. I spent nearly 3 hours wandering about the ups, downs, twists, and turns of the winding paths. During my visit, I was the first one down in the morning, providing a brief, but completely solitary experience in this underground wonderland. The comfortably cool temperature, peaceful silence, dark corners, and brilliant spotlights created another all-inclusive, sensory-filled New Mexico adventure.
Give me a follow @kylepshivers to see more amazing places!

Michael Hedges: In Bloom
On view through April 28, 2018
Michael Hedges’ expressionist paintings are as much about energy as they are about color and texture. The energy, both in his physical approach to applying paint to the support as well as the color harmonies across the compositions, activates the surface and the viewer’s experience. Hedges’ passionately embraces Abstract Expressionism with his own color-based approach to expressionist and gestural abstract painting. According to the artist, his works, “begin as a problem of two or more color relationships to be explored through form”. He then pursues multiple parallel paths to resolve the “problem” on many separate canvases. An example of Hedges’ high energy and process-driven approach to create dynamic surfaces and color combinations.
This presentation includes recent paintings from 2016 and 2017. Roughly half are painted on natural linen in which Hedges’ approach is a little different than on canvas, revealing the linen support and numerous areas where the pigment is applied in thin brushy strokes to expose the weave and texture. There are still robust areas of saturated pigment applied in his usual thick and impasto strokes. The approach creates a unique surface with textural contrasts, while the color relationships and harmonies are as vibrant as ever. Another interesting aspect of this selection of paintings is the artist’s use of collaged elements. Painted patches of canvas and linen are applied to the painting surfaces to add a specific element of interest and spontaneity, maintaining energy at peak level with unexpected shifts in process.

You guys! I ran up a wall yesterday! I had so much fun adventuring in my five finger shoes - went running in the arroyo behind my house and discovered the 599 overpass which I ran up — the views were awesome! I felt like a wall-scaling superhero ☺️ all I needed was a GoPro and a cape! 🤩😆 Nothing like running at twilight 🌅 a still time of day, birds singing, the light waning... 😍😎🏃🏽♀️❤️
Our #wce , Claire Kahn, will be in the gallery this Saturday, April 21st from 2-4pm. Our time with Claire includes an exclusive demonstration of her exquisite beadwork. Join us! 👌
Her animated, vibrant and visceral demonstration is tailored specifically to admirers of the art form, coming just a day before the opening of “Beadwork Adorns the World” at The Museum of International Folk Art.
Revisiting some old photos I took from when we road-tripped out west because I’m having serious road trip envy! My friend @elizabethulrichdesign is currently exploring the western states with her husband & 2 pups, hopping from Airbnb to the next on their way to the coast. I love seeing the desert through her pastel–loving eyes!
