GUEST ARTIST Cheryl Evans at TOWER GALLERY June through October 2017

A splash of cerulean blue on a pristine white surface, a sensitive and inquisitive line, and a tangle of rich pattern dance across the paper - artist Cheryl Evans uses color and line to define her world visually. Her series of New Mexico landscapesis inspired by a lifetime love of the high desert. Evans' first trip to the state was made as a young child and she has returned year after year to paint in Northern New Mexico. Whether standing amidst the sage brush, exploring a field of boulders with pictographs and petroglyphs strewn across a field, or working in her Texas studio, she infuses her work with the vibrant colors and textures of the New Mexican sun drenched landscape. Her paintings are personal expressions of the experiences and time spent hiking and exploring in Northern New Mexico. Her vibrant colors and brushwork give the viewer an intimate peek into her passion for the New Mexico landscape as she strives to interpret each scene as opposed to duplicating a specific vantage point. Many of the paintings feature the icons and symbols of the pueblo people hidden amid the jumble of rocks and boulders.

Working in acrylic, watercolor, and mixed media/collage, clearly the work illustrates the control, mastery, and love that Evans has for the various media.

Evans is a signature member of the Watercolor Art Society - Houston. She has had numerous one-woman shows and her work is held in collections in the United States, Mexico, England, and Japan.
She spent 32 years as an art instructor in the public schools and presently teaches watercolor at Alvin Community College where she is an adjunct professor.


This special 20th anniversary river trip explores writing and sculpting as complementary forms of creative expression, and celebrates the return to the river of renowned sculptor, Roxanne Swentzell as Page Lambert's featured guest. During this six-day adventure on the Colorado River through Canyonlands, Roxanne will guide us in sculpting with our hands, using river clay and materials gathered from the land, and Page will guide us in sculpting with words. The trip starts and ends in Moab, Utah. Professionally outfitted by Sheri Griffith Expeditions and guided by SGE's amazing women guides, who not only row the oar boats, but cook us three delicious meals each day. All food, beverages, rafting and camping equipment provided.

Arctic Adaptations: Inuit Architecture Showcased in Prestigious Venice Biennale

Dominique Godreche

For the first time in the 14-year history of the International Venice Biennale of Architecture, the Nunavut flag flew at the
entrance to the Canadian Pavilion, an Inukshuk floating at the entrance of “Arctic Adaptations: Nunavut at 15.

The exhibit, curated by architects Lola Sheppard and Mason White, from Toronto-based design firm Lateral Office, coincides with the 15th
anniversary of the territory’s creation. Arctic Adaptations documents architectural history in Nunavut, describing the realities of its communities,
introducing the future role of architecture, and responding to the theme suggested by the director of the Biennale, Rem Koolhaas: Absorbing Modernity, 1914–2014.

Opening: December 7, 5PM

Aristotle said, “The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.” Two artists respond to his statement.

There is always something deep and meaningful in an honest work of art, although sometimes it’s not visible to everyone immediately. So, when someone says they don’t like something, that doesn’t mean a lot to me. I know when there is something there—it can be a baffling mystery, then amazing, only waiting to be deciphered and to be patiently understood.
—Tony Abeyta

An exhibition of recent paintings and works on paper by Abeyta will be on view at Blue Rain Gallery, 130 Lincoln Avenue, Suite C, Santa Fe. Opening reception on Friday, August 17, from 5 to 7 pm. When one is moved by a piece of artwork, it is because it touches something inside. The more it affects us, the deeper it went. I also believe that you can purposely aim for the “inside” with direct creations that represent what we humans feel. Within us and within art, there exist worlds that are keys to those doorways.
—Roxanne Swentzell

Swentzell’s work can be seen at the Santa Fe Indian Market, Booth #400-WA-W, and at the Roxanne Swentzell Tower Gallery, Pojoaque, New Mexico. photographs by Anne Staveley
