June 6th, Santa Fe: Reception for Richard Tuschman and photo-eye Grand Opening


© 2014 Richard Tuschman

Opening Reception: Richard Tuschman, Hopper Meditations
Friday, June 6, 2014, 5:00-7:00 pm

“[Edward] Hopper was a master at using light to expressively illuminate his subject. I also like the fact that almost all of his human subjects are contemplative. There is, for the most part, no action. This sense of quietude contributes to the open-ended quality of the narratives, and leaves room for significant emotional depth. This seems a lot like real life, and what I would like to carry over in my work.” — Richard Tuschman

The exhibition will be on view June 6 – July 19, 2014.

This opening reception is in conjunction with photo-eye’s new gallery space grand opening.  The new photo-eye Gallery is located at:

541 S. Guadalupe St.
(in the Railyard Arts District)

“This exhibition at VERVE is a collection of photographs that dispels the belief that photography offers an accurate rendering of persons, places, things and events–Realism. The images by these three fine art photographers are created, constructed and choreographed by the artist to, at first blush, appear as accurate and objective renderings of what they portray. They summon the viewer to first comprehend them as an accurate rendition, only to then provoke the viewer to see them in a completely different light. Unmistakably aesthetic, this imagery of persons, places, things and events is to be seen and understood as metaphors–to tell a different story or stories, or perhaps a story of a dream–Surrealism…. This exhibition is therefore a theater, an itinerary of animated pictorial elaborations—images of the dream. In each instance, however, the image content is always inviting and the compositions have patterns, structure and narrative. The works are pleasing to the eye.”

“The first book on the work of Sharon Harper, From Above and Below, features ten years of experimental photographs and video stills of the sky—images of stars, sun, sky, moon and clouds. Sharon’s photographs within this volume draw on scientific and artistic uses of photography to illuminate the medium’s ability to simultaneously verify empirical evidence and record the artist’s subjective relationship to the natural world.”

February 8th & 19th, Albuquerque: Opening Reception & Artist Talk: Martin Stupich “Remnants of the First World”

University of New Mexico Art Museum
Opening Reception for Martin Stupich, Remnants of the First World
Friday, February 8, 2013, 5:00-7:00 pm
Artist Talk on Tuesday, February 19, 2013 at 5:30 pm
Free and open to the public.

“We build and shape our landscapes and terrains—gardens, bridges, truck stops, quarries, canals and dams—to suit both our physical and emotional desires. Yet this is not without consequences. This exhibition presents a selection of potent images from a larger body of work that Martin Stupich has explored and recorded since the 1970s. These images of some of our most ambitious, often permanent structures are breathtaking to behold yet also pose questions about what it is we are leaving behind as the “remnants” of our culture and time. As the photographer has remarked “These remnants of the first world are the evidence, the trail of clues we leave as we plow ahead….” Stupich clearly works within a historical sphere which harks back to the nineteenth-century and includes some of the great camera artists of that era such as Timothy O’Sullivan, Carleton Watkins and Darius Kinsey.”

The exhibition is located in the Van Daren Coke Gallery and will be on display February 19 – May 25, 2013.
Martin Stupich will give an artist talk at the museum on Tuesday, February 19, 2013 at 5:30 pm.

July 26th, Santa Fe: Performance by W. M. Hunt “The Unseen Eye”

Santa Fe University of Art and Design | photo-eye
Performance by W. M. Hunt, The Unseen Eye: A Life in Photographs and Other Digressions…
Thursday, July 26, 2012 at 6:00 pm
Free and open to the public. Book signing to follow.

W. M. Hunt will recreate his unique performance piece suggested by the text for his book, The Unseen Eye: Photographs from the Unconscious (Aperture 2011).  Hunt debuted his performance The Unseen Eye: A Life in Photographs and Other Digressions… last October when the book was launched.

The Unseen Eye: A Life in Photographs and Other Digressions… is a monologue with projections and video, a rumination on Hunt’s many years of collecting and a life in photographs.  The author hopes to bring into the light some of the names and stories left out of The Unseen Eye. The book presents a wonderfully idiosyncratic and compelling collection of photographs assembled around a particular theme: magical, heart stopping images of people in which the eyes are obscured, veiled, or otherwise hidden.

Based in New York City, W. M. Hunt has been a collector since his early years as an actor. He is a frequent lecturer on collecting, a well-known dealer, a fundraiser, writer and an adjunct professor at the School of Visual Arts in New York. Hunt is known for his wit, his eye and his often larger than life personality.”

March 6th, Albuquerque: Artist Talk by Joel Peter-Witkin

University of New Mexico Art Museum
Artist Talk by Joel Peter-Witkin, Matter Into Spirit

Tuesday, March 6, 2012 at 5:30 pm
Free and open to the public (suggested donation of $5).

Joel Peter-Witkin (American, b. 1939) remains one of the most innovative and controversial living photographers who is best known for his provocative tableaux that are highly symbolic amalgamations and contemporary versions of the medieval tradition of the momento mori; that is, images that serve to remind the viewer of her/his own mortality. Witkin’s oeuvre is distinguished, perhaps like no other in the international pantheon of vanguard photography, through his constructed versions of heaven and hell, suffering and deliverance, morbidity and beauty laced with Christian iconography and pagan myth. The aura of the photographs are enhanced by deliberate manipulation of the surface to make them appear aged, an act that comments on the nature of the photographic image by calling into question its permanency.”

The Art Museum is located in the Center for the Arts, UNM Main Campus [map].
Paid parking available in Structure accessed at Central and Stanford.
