Santa fe, nm | The relationship between two past roommates of individual artistic backgrounds has developed into an impactful significance. Painters Frank Gonzales and Richard Salcido have known each other before they both proactively pursued their individual careers; the two men were roommates. Years later have lead the pair to current day, and they are ready to share experiences again.
Yet, this time, from a distance, both painters will be shipping back and forth their creations to finish complete pieces for their upcoming Beals & Co. Showroom Exhibition ‘Distant’. Each artist will have their hand on every piece showcased in the show. Much like writers create a dialogue from a distance, these two painters will create a coalescence in art to complete each other’s visual ‘sentences’.
Frank Gonzales was born in Mesa, Arizona and grew up in Tempe. He received his BFA from Laguna College of Art and Design in 2003. His work explores ornithological subjects, organic and plant elements and color. In his own words: My work is about taking reference from various sources including books, the internet and photos to comprise and create my own imagery.…. Richard Salcido was born and raised in San Diego, California and as a little kid would love to sit for hours drawing. That love has amazingly turned into a career which he finds to be such a great blessing; further collectors from all over the world have found a blessing, as well. This collaboration was bound to happen, needed to happen and is happening soon.
All are welcome to attend this presentation of Distant featuring Frank Gonzales and Richard Salcido. and meet the artists at the show opening on Friday, October 27 at the Beals & Co. Showroom, 830 Canyon Road.
