NOTE: This post was written quite awhile ago but it was repeatedly pushed back to make room for the New Gallery posts. The show Full is no longer up at Evoke and has been replaced by a new group show titled Decadence, which is opening tonight from 5-7 and is curated by John O’Hern.
Way back when, I did a post about gallery hopping in Santa Fe (see Gallery Hopping In Santa Fe 2) which included a preview of a show that would be opening in May at Evoke Contemporary (find more about Evoke at EVOKEcontemporary.com). The title of the show is “Full” and it features paintings by Lee Price, all self-portraits having to do with eating. I loved this concept and wanted to go back to see it once it opened. A reader of the blog has also been waiting. So, Anna had to go into town for an appointment, and we decided to make a day of it with lunch and a trip to Evoke to see “Full”. Here’s what you’ve been waiting for Cindy. What do you think? While we were there I snapped a few pics of some other artists as well.
Then we went to Trader Joe’s for some groceries and decided to call our friend, Judith Hert, (see previous post Judith Hert, Artist) to see if she was up for a visit when we arrived back in Truchas. She was, so we bought wine and cheese, basil and tomatoes, and French bread, and headed back to the High Road.
Judith is just finishing a huge project. She’s been refurbishing an old adobe structure on the back of her property that’s acted as a storage shed since she bought the place. She’s turning it in to her home gallery which will be called the Iola Gallery. Up until now her gallery’s been in her home along with her studio. So this will give her much more room. The space is turning out great. We’re promised a big party when it officially opens and you know you’ll all come along through the blog.
Then I dropped Anna off at home where she was greeted by her dogs, and headed back over to my place, knowing my crew would be waiting.
All in all it was a great day–filled with good art and good friends. It just doesn’t get any better than that.
Love to you all,
