santa fe, nm | On May 12, the Santa Fe art scene will be presented with an unprecedented multi-artist and multi-media gallery exhibition and art experience centered on moments of transition. Featuring the collaborative work of artists from varied genres, the show explores what happens when they are asked to create together, adopting an entirely new process. The concept of process won’t be limited to the artists themselves—viewers will be asked to delve into their own experience of taking in the art, and what it means to them. During the opening reception attendees will have the opportunity to learn about how the works came to life, and the road the artists took to get there.
Process features a six piece suite of work by collaborative partners Patrick Cloudface Burnham, an accomplished visual artist, dancer, and DJ, and lead show artist and poet, Carlos Contreras. Contreras and Cloudface will speak through canvas and paint, poetry, and presentation, to convey their process. In addition to their collaboration, the show will also include the visual artists David Santiago, Natalee Maxwell, Adelina Cruz, and Al’Nair Lara.
Through their creative process of painting, each of them will respond to a written work by one of the following poets: Hakim Bellamy, Jessica Lopez, Ebony Isis Booth, and Damien Flores. Completing the trifecta of works, producer Colin Diles Hazelbaker will also respond to the poems, with their songs available for download via a QR code that will be distributed at the Showroom.
All are welcome to attend Process, opening on Friday, May 12 at the Beals & Co. Showroom, 830 Canyon Road.
