Show Preview: “Dreamers”

I am pleased to announce a new exhibition of paintings at the Arden Gallery in Boston. The show runs the entire month of October with an opening reception on Saturday, October 4, 4pm – 6pm. For secret reasons I am unable to attend the reception but I hope you will stop by to see the works (which is the  important thing). The works are now available for pre-sale at the gallery.

Nous étions seul à seule et marchions en rêvant,
Elle et moi, les cheveux et la pensée au vent. ~ Paul Verlaine

(We were alone, and as we walked, we dreamed,
Our hair and thoughts both flying in the breeze.
~ Trans. Alistair Elliot)

Fatima Ronquillo is enamored with what she calls “the earnestness of colonial folk art.” the Philippines-born, Texas-raised artist, who shows at Meyer East Gallery on Canyon Road, taught herself to paint by copying old paintings and drawings, and she explains that “looking for prototypes or ideas from the art of the past” is integral to her creative process. But symbolism and humor also play an evolving role in her work. “I view my paintings more as portraits of emotions or ideas rather than [of] any particular person. I want to paint stuff about love and hopefulness and also the occasional heartache.” Ronquillo says. “I am a secret romantic.” ―ET

I just finished the body of work for my show which opens tomorrow, Friday, June 6, 5-7 pm at the Meyer East Gallery in Santa Fe. There are lots of new pieces built around the theme “Tesoro Mio” ~ a show full of many treasured objects and beloveds.

“Smoker” and “Girl with Yellow Finch”

I have just released the first paintings for 2014 at the Meyer East Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico. They are also the first of the works to be included for my upcoming solo show at the gallery in June. Two of the four have sold immediately before I can post this but “Girl with Yellow Finch” and “Smoker” are still available.
