The exhibition includes a notable selection of new audachron jewel watches for women, each created using Swiss precision mechanisms, and uniquely handcrafted, traditional Buccellati metalwork.
The shared dedication and passion for creating traditional Southwest and landscape paintings while developing new perspectives abroad continues to inspire husband and wife artists, John and Terri Kelly Moyers. Their show of work, John and Terri Moyers – All Over the Map, from August 11–September 1, 2012, features their French and Spanish plein-air paintings recently shown in New York. In addition, the couple will show European, Canadian, and Mexican compositions, as well as their newest oil paintings of cornerstone Southwestern images of culture and landscapes.
Michael Naranjo-Inner Vision, from September 15 – October 13, 2012, will feature a collection of limited edition bronzes produced from 1970 through 2010 by Native American artist, Michael Naranjo. Created without the use of his sight (lost while serving in Vietnam), Naranjo’s work presents a stylized narrative of his heritage and life experience in deeply-hued and tactile bronze work. His decades-long career offers a repertoire of sculpture that is a display of his extraordinary artistic abilities, uniquely created with an inner vision and remarkably skilled touch.
