The Lady Minimalists Go To Roswell

Signe's exhibition, "Fifteen," opened at the Roswell Museum and Art Center on Friday, October 2nd, and we went down to attend.  The show is beautifully curated to display her sensibility and attention to materials, which have remained constant over more than five decades.   There's a fine catalogue with an essay by curator Sara Woodbury to accompany the show, which will be up until March 20th.  Go see it!

Signe Stuart Retrospective

Signe will be honored with a career retrospective at the Roswell Museum.  We are excited for her and of course all of us will drive down for the opening.  Signe has been making art for a lifetime, and in the 20 years I've personally known her, has gone though several changes as she continually searches through new visual territory.  She has experimented with materials from sewn canvas to plastic food trays, created small wall pieces and room-sized installations, and always kept her vision clear and uncompromised.   Please join us, join her, for what promises to be a fascinating and beautiful show.

Jill Christian at the New Mexico Museum of Art

There is still time to see Lady Minimalist Jill Christian's paintings in the Art on the Edge exhibit at the New Mexico Museum of Art.  The show, which runs through August 16th, features the work of seven regional artists selected by Nora Burnett Abrams, Associate Curator at the Denver Museum of Contemporary Art.

Our exhibit is up in the elegant SMINK gallery/design showroom on Dragon Street.  We're thrilled to be showing in Dallas and hope that if you are in the area, you will come by and see our work on view.  Or head over to to see images.

All  six Lady Minimalists were on hand for the opening reception.  We spent a busy few days visiting museums in Dallas and Fort Worth and being wined and dined by the ever-generous Smink sisters.  Our palettes, both oral and visual,  are delightfully sated as we head back to our individual studios.  Thank-you Jennifer, Autumn and Dawn!

Axle Contemporary at Peters Projects

Because the Lady Minimalists were among the artists who exhibited in Axle Contemporary's little step van over the last 5 years (Magnetic Shift, 2013), we were invited to an expansive indoor show at Peters Projects.  This scintillating show involving 146 artists who previously showed with Axle was described by Peters Projects director Ylise Kessler as "a finger on the pulse of what's happening in Santa Fe."  If you are in Santa Fe and haven't seen it, or want to see it again, it will be up through March 21st.

Peters Projects on Paseo de Peralta occupies a rambling collection of museum-like spaces amounting to 8,500 square feet, so there is plenty of room for all that artwork.  We thought it was elegantly curated and hung so that the array of styles and media are never overwhelming, but lead the viewer  from room to room.  Thanks, Ylise, Matthew Chase-Daniel and Jerry Wellman, for all you do for the Santa Fe art community.
