Betweeen the last late summer days and the start of golden autumn light, Beals & Co. Showroom presents a group show embodying the changing landscape of New Mexico. Featuring works showing a variety of techniques including thick oil texture, thin washes of color, and photography, Golden Days brings together mixed perspectives of the fleeting season. The show includes landscape pieces capturing that ephemeral moment from painters Deborah Gold, Leilija Roy, Bernard Marks, James Trigg, Marsha Clements, Ian Clark, Tim Kenney, JR Rapier, and photographer Cody Brothers.
From the Artists
Lelija Roy’s artwork in this show features the beauty of Aspens in autumn. Lelija explains, “This is my favorite time in the wilderness. This short-lived beauty signals the essential change between summer and winter. It is a balance point. Each year it is a little different depending on weather and changing climate conditions. I am especially attached to aspens groves. Individual trees in a forest change at will. Aspens, however, are connected. An aspen grove is a single organism, so they change in unison.”
Deborah Gold’s oil paintings express the colorful narrative in landscape that can only be in New Mexico. “I love to use a variety of colors to pull together my impression of the New Mexico landscape. The sun setting over the mesas, the aspens shimmering and the color that changes so fast continue to impress upon me and inspire me to paint,” remarks Gold.
All are welcome to attend Golden Days, a group show presenting the landscapes of New Mexico at the Beals & Co. Showroom at 830 Canyon Road in Santa Fe from 5-7pm on September 17th.
