We have one of Tony\'s large paintings which brings us joy every day in our \"Santa Fe\" room in Dallas! My husband thought it was too large but somehow I knew it would work! It is fabulous!!!! Tony is a master!
This horse is beautiful!!
Very much like the deer holding fish pot. Many of Naranjo\'s works I find a bit too far from the traditional pueblo pottery I collect (Autumn, Linda Cain, etc.), but this piece maintains the traditional sensibilities with enough modernity to seem an expansion rather than a departure.
What fun and adorable pieces to display!
Hey Doug have you ever drawn Conan the barbarian?
I have one of Ted\'s originals from about 1986 when he was in AZ. It\'s a gorgeous rectangular lapis in a diamond bezelled frame. The chain it came on was hand made by Ted. It\'s truly a treasure.
Lovely painting and am happy that Rimi is doing some work in slightly smaller scale for those of us that have run out of space!
Doug, This intimate piece is one of our favorites. While we love the sweep of many of your pieces, the approachable scale of this lovely little mesa beckons us. We usually pass through Ojo Caliente on our way to Santa Fe, so perhaps this scene is simply familiar. We think of you often.
SO PEACEFULLY BEAUTIFUL. DIGNITY AND GRACE
One if the best katsina dolls I\'ve seen. Wow!
Stunning paintings. Amazing that you have painted for such a short period of time and are self taught. What a talent. I am an oil painter myself and know how difficult it can be to actually see and critique your own paintings. All the best to you, you deserve it.
bru this is so dope love itttt ;)
Les Namingha is an amazing artist! Love his work.
This is absolutely gorgeous! Beautiful shape and artwork. Perfect coloring.
Love the picture and would be awesome in our house, I worked with Leroy Metaltooth for years in California
He gets better and better. This is so beautiful and so complex. His black wolf head was my first love. This is so far beyond that. I love this.
you incorporate some of the old ways of creating pottery but have such a wonderful artistic vision. Amazing creations.
This is great new work!
AWSOME as usual Preston continues to excite and evolve and produce spectacular art.
From Tear down the wall, to build a wall, we need more people to stand up for what is right, keep up the good work, and let\'s. alll help to tear down the walls between us.Thanks
I like this picture, it reminds me of the flower-time and it is beautiful colored and everything about the picture is so \"mother earth like\" and you want to go to the nature.
Exquisite! Trouble finding the right words to express the complexityand elegance of this piece. Awesome!!!
Amazing-elegant and poignant.
Elegant and the details are awesome.
I shall never tire of seeing the work of this amazing artist. I find him to be truly extraordinary. I would love to visit his studio/workshop as the mastery of his technique intrigues me. Thank you for sending this latest exhibit of very imaginative and emotive work. Each piece inspires. My wish is to someday own one.
I\'ve been watching his work evolve for years now. It\'s always amazing to see it in person. His talent seems to grow with his ambition. I love these totems. Growing up in the Seattle area totem poles were a familiar sight and I loved native art from an early age. He takes that tradition and (for me, at least) brings it forward to the world as it is now.
Beautiful work--I love the spirit of this picture.Dorothy Potter
I LOVE that he can make the most boring landscape look like a piece of art. I grew up in desert, and love its modest beauty.
I wish I could see these in person. I\'m swooning - especially over the execution of water and the flowers. I like his pallet very much! He seems to use the colors and light in a unique and stylistic manner. I will commend this exhibit to friends in the area.
Man, I love your stuff! Still looking for the right one to buy. Ever gonna do a musician series?
Beautiful and profound work!
Incredible presentation of pain in their faces comes alive. How I wish I lived closer so I could come to the opening
I absolutely love your work!
Love all of these, especially \"Winter Shadows.\"D. B. Potter
These paintings are all beautiful.The brush stroke, hue, her imagination, everything is well balanced.I have attended the Los Angeles art show since last 6 years and I saw her paintings there for the first time.I love her paintings.Thank you Rimi!
the light on this is incredible! Thanks fsor your hard work.
delicate, ethereal, delightful
I have actually seen this amazing painting at Blue Rain. I could not tear my eyes from this glowing image. One can only stand and sigh in front of this remarkable cow. No one else needs to attempt painting this animal. This is the quintessential animal art that any animal artist painter aspires to.
Such an amazing artist! She captures the essence of these handsome animals. They make me happy just to look at them! I will come to visit these phenomenal works soon. I just wish Ms. Elliot would visit as well.
Absolutely striking; showing the beautiful spirit and majesty of the subjects.
He ain\'t no St Nick! but he is the quintessential NNM vato artistway to go Erin
I love the depth, the signature style, the light and color. Truly Doug is one of my favorite artists. I have a poster of his work that hangs in my sitting room. It makes me so happy to contemplate seeing the desert scene for the first time and inspires awe within me.
Cannupa\'s work is incredible.
The totem is very unique, especially done in glass. I can see the \"collective effort\" as to me, it shows several different views of life and how people have different belief systems.I especially like the Northern Tribal designs at the foot of the totem(I suppose that to be where the artist might come from) then as the raven (another North American Tribal persona) opens the box and lets the birds, etc. Out.. We see another cultural groups beliefs emerging ( perhaps as the artist traveled he met new spiritual beliefs.) A totem expressing how people around the world all believe in things similar. I like it! Beautifully executed! Thank you for sharing your creation about creation, Mr. Singltary.
An amazing work of art,very balanced and unique.
What a wonderful inspiring collection of paintings.
Love this one, Billy! The dynamic composition, the off-scene implied action, the subtle tonal shifts with the perspective, that awesome turquoise bracelet highlight up front, and of course, that witty caption that leaves so much to speculatory imagination. Bravo--I say THE NEWS IS VERY GOOD.
I love your shadowing. It\'s so amazing, especially in the painting of the Navajo sheep in Monument Valley. I can\'t afford to buy original art, but would be interested in purchasing a print..
I could not dream 1000 words to be worth the wieght of this picture . It silences me, and fills me with urgent respect for both the artist and the subjects
leroy- wow. who KNEW? i mean, is there ANYTHING you cannot do?????? :-) these editions are TRULY; REALLY TRULY beautiful. they have an appealing subtle masculine aesthetic to them versus many other pieces of this style we\'ve seen for years in many galleries. and the COLORS. so stunning AND unique. i mean.....our main thought, at this point, is what must it be like to live in your brilliant brain? :-)we are glad they are editioned, as we intend to purchase this particular one or another of these beautiful bronze tiles. many congratulations to you on SO many fronts!!!
I can feel the warmth of the Santa Fe sun on my shoulders
I love your work. Always go to Blue Rain whenever I\'m in SF so that I can see your work.
Wonderful video. I came looking for more information about Jody, and found the actual piece we own in the video. What could be better?
It\'s been a pleasure to watch his work over the years and to have had the opportunity to watch his demonstrations at Blue Rain. Singletary is the consummate artist - highly skilled, elegant in his vision, and true to his culture.
It is always interesting to see an artist stretch into new wok
My favorite flower in my favorite place!
The beauty of it all, I see , feel the fusion of styles , Culture , and personal passion , enjoyed it mucho , mucho.
I love her work.
Wow! What an elegant piece. Tammy you have outdone yourself. With all of your bronze and glass and so forth it obviously feeds your muse to return to natural clay. While I will never be able to purchase a piece like this, I now own the vision.Thank you for enriching our lives.
I\'ve always thought Allen\'s work was very special. My wife and I had the good fortune to see both her and Preston Singletary do demonstrations at Blue Rain during Indian Market several years ago. Both demos were first-rate. I was already a Singletary fan, and I have enjoyed watching Allen\'s career and art advance to higher levels.
Roseta:Your paintings are stunning!
Great tribute to the bovine. When I was twelve I was milking eight cows every morning before I went to school. This was before milking machines.
Uniquely beautiful. Great art
Nice article. Love the work.
This artist is so gifted. Her painting of Native Americans are stunning.
Roseta -Your paintings continue to inspire awe ~ there is the mystery of the pueblo in their aura that you are able to convey so beautifully!Best wishes, Toba
Peace be with you Ted....I only met him once but he left a lasting impression....
Your designs are spectacular.
I love this piece! So simple but stunning.
Billy Schenck trancends space and time with this beautiful painting.
Saw this hanging at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. It is such a fabulous piece of art!!!
I like Doug\'s clouds and skies. I\'m sure his paintings are even more gorgeous in person.
Love this work!
Your work keeps on getting better and better!
Beautiful work and keep on doing what you\'re doing !! Love your work!!
Your work is beautiful!! You are a wonderful artist!!
You are a very talented artist. I love your work .
The light is beautiful . Fully Santa Fe . And this view down San Francisco st is classic!
WOW! Kudos to Mr. Vogel and the gallery.Beautiful!Thank you. we were just in Santa fe on a whirlwind. A friend of ours had an opening at the Gerald Peters Project. We were pulled in all directions and did not get to go to our favorite places. We will be back 4/16! and we will come visit. You have been sending us so many beautiful examples of your works, thank you!Julia and Jonathan
Trees are so amazing and the images of them in art is so impressive.
Roseta, this is an amazing piece!
This is absolutely AMAZING!!
Beautifully created.Love it,great job
Innovative and deeply emotional pieces. Absolutely stunning work from a superbly gifted artist!
Your art is beautiful...your talent amazing. I love the vivid, captivating colors.
Very Jules Verne-y! Love it.
Love it,Amazing Work of Art !!!!!!
The Bear Set is amazing!!! All of her work is awesome!
Hi Billy- Many congratulations from us to you on your new adventure. we CANNOT imagine a better paring than you/your utterly masterful fine art with the fabled (as IT should be) Blue Rain Gallery; an ever-increasing, even almost sole place to go for nearly all of one\'s fine art desires. For US- endless money would mean daily purchases from Blue Rain to include ANY of the current and future spectacular works that you have/will be competing, we are sure. We\'ve already started saving- :-)Best of luck to both parties (and to us- in getting there FIRST for the pieces we most desire- lol!!)
I think that the pottery is an exceptional work of art!
Passing the torch is an exceptional piece from an already exceptional artist. Jim\'s ability to handle fire-- and the light that emanates from fire, flame, lamplight, at dusk, at night, and from the various phases of the moon; is masterful and nothing short of magic. Pure Northern New Mexico magic! And Kristen\'s frames complete the work in the manner that the work deserves.It is an honor to show alongside the Vogels at BRG!
Breathtaking!!! Works on so many levels.
We purchased a copy of this piece during Indian Market. It fits beautifully in our home office.
The spirit beautifully captured.
Thank you so much for bringing this contemporary artist to the forefront. Really fascinating commentary on the culture of Native peoples in the modern world.
I WAS SO THRILLED TO SEE SUCH FINE WORK...THIS ARTIST CAPTURES HIS SUBJECT MATTER WITH INCREDIBLE SKILL AND FEELING. CONGRATS TO MR. SIEVERS AND TO BLUERAIN!
This is titled \"Avanyu\" the water serpent, and it is an excellent early work by Tammy and Preston. There is an individually bound booklet that describes the piece and the process of creating it. An outstanding collectors item!
Ryndee- What a gorgeous painting! These must be Cerro de Santa Clara and Cerro Guadalupe, which are distinctive volcanic relics generally between Mount Taylor and the Jemez. You might take a look at the New Mexico Centennial stamp which has another fabulous Doug West landscape titled \"Sanctuary\" with these same volcanic features but in a totally different mood.
I want one of these! !!! And one with elephants! !!!
Love this also
Love her stuff
David Bradley is the best artist around.
Finally some good art!
We purchased this painting a week or so ago at Blue Rain and it is being delivered to our home today. We can\'t wait to hang and light it. Would you please share with us where the actual setting is located?
This is outrageously gorgeous!!!
Saw this piece today at the Autry. It is truly amazing and captivating. You can\'t tell from this picture, but it is about 5 feet tall and the luster is alluring. There is a good reason they put it as the greeting piece in their gallery at the Autry. If you haven\'t seen this piece in real life, you are missing something wonderful. Hmmmm, can you tell it affected me?
I love the thought process behind the art as much as the final expression of the art itself. Provocative. I love this piece.
Jim\'s work is very exciting, beautiful and interesting. Those hands!! Wow. And the colors.....His work will live on in history.
Bravo, Dr. El Ocio! Vogel has unveiled the unseen world of his creativity!
Amazing work !
I love everything about this painting!
Todos son obras de arte preciosas, me encantan sus figuras y sus colores, bellísimas.
WOW - cannot wait to see this sculpture.
Like into of wildlife to pieces, like TigerFish and bird
Like color in this piece
Like animal and simplicity of pottery
Like the white, like lighted background
Like black and white
Like simplicity in this piece
I like this!
this is stunning just stunning!! Claudia
If I could own one piece of art...I LOVE everything Erin Currier creates! Amazing!
Love the amusing and straight forward approach. Just put a therapy horse down today....her animals are animated.
Love this painting!
This is a fabulous example of Indian humor. I wish I had sufficient wall space to include this in my collection. I love it.
Everything she paints I want! What a great talent she has. A true gift ! Claudia
Mr. West captures in oil on canvas the way my mind\'s eye remembers my southwest homeland. Thanks for the memories!
Good luck on the show and I wish I can be there Hefe!!
Beautiful note the opening to let the spirits in and out.
Wow, this painting captures so many memories of mine of New Mexico. My grandmother took me there several times in my youth through my 30\'s before she passed away. And this captures so much and reminds me of one of our last trips to Chama. I looked you up because another artist reminded me of your work and I remember seeing you in the galleries when I was young. I\'m so glad you are still creating beautiful paintings. Thank you.
unique and so many stories...no words to say -- pure - I see corn maidens, many symbols of the old ways...stunning to me.
love your art
Quickly placed and juicy. Excites the heart. For me, it is good to see another painter grabbing his impression and, putting it down with grace and intention. Thank youJPT
All I can say is \"WOW!\" Saw your ad in Art and Architecture magazine. Beautiful work...
Beautiful! This is extraordinary work.
San Felipe Man, this painting to me has reached the inner crevices of my being, it touches my soul and there is something very spiritual about it, Roseta you have done what an artist can only hope to accomplish. Sincerely Madeline G Thorpe
this was my fathers piece , I miss him he was a great jeweler
Stunning. Remarkable sense of realism and attention to detail
Beautiful design and colors,
Very interesting work.
This is absolutely gorgeous!
Absolutely charming love the critters
Opps! It a bird!.. Still, a Hopi bird!...
This is a gorgeous piece.. Abstract and contemporary yet referring to the Hopi Nampeyo feather .... Wish I could afford it!!!
Even though this picture of this piece is flat, my imagination tells me it has much depth. It is truly delicate and exquisite.
I find this a bit humorous and this piece cannot be matched!
Incredibly beautiful. Even though red is such a strong color, I find this piece so peaceful and soothing!!!!
The vessel is incredibly beautiful. Props to the artist!
This piece is sublime.
I like very much!Wished I could see it in person. All the subtleties gather together powerfully showing fertility and earth forces. Thank youJeff
Such beautiful work! Thank You!
What incredibly beautiful, whimsical works! Truly original creations that delight and challenge pre-conceptions of the limitations that the human imagination can conjure. Very creative indeed.
Oh my, this is wonderful. I want to stroke his head and rub his belly. And so beautiful.
great work keep it up
Love this! A play on the Santa Fe Super Chief?
Super nice work.
This is my favorite! I love the color combinations and the contrast of bold verses intricate patterns.
These wood pieces are truly unbelievable!
Love this and the one I saw at LA Art show last weekend. I hope someday to be able to afford to have one for my entry way. Absolutely beautifully & skillfully made!
Ever since I was introduced to your Gallery by a dear friend, I have taken the time to visit your website periodically throughout the year.I did not know you would be featuring Preston Singletary\'s work in this lovely catalog when I chose to visit you just now.Preston\'s work in glass is exceptionally beautiful and I have loved his work from the moment I was first introduced to his artistry.I\'ve not visited your Gallery in person. I only know your collections as they are featured online.Thank you for this special enrichment. I love learning and I feel especially enriched right now.Loving gratitude to you all.........Leah
This work with clay is the most heartfelt I have encountered. I hear its song and it calls me to move deeper in my recognition of Spirit in the clay and ways I also might find to honor it.Thank you. It is gorgeous!
Your work is absolutely stunning. Thank you!
I have seen his art work when he was still in college. He has become a great artist. Keep it up.
This is beautiful. I love the color choice. It appears as though light is coming from within, like a candle. Very unique!
Classic Tammy at her best. Lottery began at 10:00 AM. This piece was probably snatched up by 10:01.
Atlanta needs it\'s own SOFA event.
Gorgeous works! My husband and I were in Albuquerque for his yearly AFAcademy reunion and Balloon Festival. We are headed to Santa Fe and hope to be able to stop by Blue Rain Gallery. I have always loved and praised your works. Have been telling the group about you and they, too, are looking forward to at least catching a glimpse of your beautiful, beautiful unique work!
As the wife of Sombath Somphone I want to thank Erin Currier for her very sensitive depiction of Sombath. It is a real tribute to Sombath the man and his work. I hope many people will support me to urge the Lao Government to help find Sombath and have him returned to me safely. Shui Meng Ng, wife of Sombath Somphone who was disappeared right in front of a police post in Vientiane on 15 December 2012.
I would love to be able to channel, Tammy Garcia talent. However, I\'m just a novice when it comes to pottery. However I have a eye for beauty.
By the time the announcement arrived in my e-mailbox, almost every piece was marked \"SOLD.\" Almost a hey-look-what-you-missed taunt.
Love Love love
Wonderful!!! Straight to the soul..we get it!!!
Your work is awe-inspiring. Saw it tonight for the first time at the home of the Krapfs. Beautiful. Stunning. Live this piece.
I love this.....very simple yet elegant.......
Roseta,Thank you for your glorious gift of \"Roseta Santiago\"; in the forms of your transcendent paintings, of which we are MOST fortunate to enjoy a couple in our home, though that number is SURELY to grow :-) , to the true near bible of Fine Art that IS your fantastic \"Conversations with Roseta Santiago.\" Wow!! THAT was an unexpected Master Class in all things related to Fine Art painting. It has changed and expanded our understanding of what painting IS, and further, what it SHOULD be. Very beautiful and beautifully done, and NOW the New Works for your New Show. Just as Spectacular as anything that one could imagine knowing even a little of your style. your works are just beyond description; except to say that there could be no higher complement from us in saying that to YOU. we hope to be the lucky recipient of at least ONE of these beauties. Not that you need it, given the beautifully described disciplined exploration of your inner world that is so important to you, but best of luck with your Show and THANK YOU SO MUCH for your kindness and for being the Fun, Honest, and Remarkably Talented person that you are! Lucky US- :-)
Very much appreciate Romero\'s abstract desert series. they remind me of the work done by cezanne , derain, and co.
Love the colors
Absolutely beautiful! Where can I get one for my New Mexico home!
A beautiful way to show beautiful work.
Can\'t wait to get to SF for an up close view of these beautiful, wonderful works of art!
Stunning collection. Looking Forward to Seeing the Show in Person.
Dear Robb,Greetings from New Zealand.I purchased several of your paintings (posters) at the Contemporary Hispanic Market-when I had the fortune to be there in July 2011.They are a joy and delight to look at-they are such wonderful,lively,colorful and exciting possessions.My best wishes,George.
I have seen her take raw chunk of native clay to this.The amount of time she puts into her work is un real..
Another masterpiece from Ed Sandoval! It amazes me that he can paint so prolifically, yet put a different mood into each of his paintings. The most difficult decision is which mood do I choose?
These pottery are so beautiful. she does the best work.
a master artist work - translating traditional themes into modern materials, techniques and consciousness ! thank you .
So beautiful: heat and light, cool and dark, all elements of this lovely composition, be they air, water, ground or sky draw the eye to the smallest but most vital spot: a gathering of people. Thank you for the pleasure of seeing this wonderful work of art.
I love his work hes a great artist!
Wow well carved looks great!
This is engaging. Lovely work.
Absolutely love this piece.
Saw this in special exhibit in st pete art museum. It is spectacular! I am in awe.
Absolutely gorgeous, intricate piece of work. I love it.
I have a mosaic covered shell necklace of hers - my favorite !!
Love the way the artist created the sky.
Amazing!! Very powerful. Tells a sad story of American lies Aand corruption. Great job, Mr. Bradley!
Breathtakingly Beautiful.....your little brother guided me to your site. Thank you for sharing your art,your craft, and the love of stones...Mother Nature :o)
This piece is just spectacular. . .brilliant in every detail.
This takes me back to NM & Santa Fe and many beautiful memories of days spent there. . . the calm and clarity of the river reflecting the beautiful yellow of the trees against the earth. I admire your restraint in tamping down the turquoise blue of the NM sky, letting the yellow \"sing\" WOW!
I saw the painting at the Whitney in Cody, Wyoming and it\'s stunning! (So is the Whitney.) The painting is a masterful send-up of the sad, superficial veneer obscuring the real wonder we have all around us in this blessed world. Any plan to make prints available?
I have no words, because they would detract from the power of this piece. I am in awe.
Really fascinating. This alone was like a school day, learned a lot. I enjoy the strength with of your characters with some major emphasis on powerful hands. Beautiful.
What torment and anguish. Fabulous rendition of a beloved traditional character in media from a story.
This artist is fantastic. He is a gifted person, and comes from a long line of artists, Hopi-Tewa. Cool to hang out with him today. We call his brother rambunctious.
I truly miss the spectacle of a downpour on the CO Plateau, though I do NOT miss the frightening lightning.
This is a wonderful video!Santiago\'s work brings us the beauty and dignity of our Northern New Mexico\'s heritage. As she expands her \"repertoire\" she delights us with the beauty of other cultures and her own imagination.
Your work is beautiful - so complex and simply intriguing. So wish I had the kind of money to afford one of your pieces - at least I can look at your art online and dream.
She is my favorite artist! I have two small paintings by her and would love to have one of her leaping horses! She is simply amazing!
Beautiful Roseta!... As always!....you truly inspire! Continued success.
Love this video and the painting. I still dream of the white horse soaring free! She is so talented.
Only Tony could paint in a white tee shirt and carry it off.That is class, as a painter,and as a person.Talent ,imagination,energy and a great style.
Now, that was fun!
Great video. Really enjoyed seeing Tony \"in action\"! My husband and I both enjoy the piece we purchased a few years ago and look forward to our next trip to the gallery!
Fun to watch creative video with amazing process going on. Where can I get a jacket like Tony\'s? The Big A looks custom-made! Great music really moves the action along.
Really enjoyed the video. Love her pottery. Wish we had purchased some years ago!
Great page and video.Thanks
Great work I have several pieces and treasure them.
they all are beautiful and significant. Do you have another framed art as this one and how much are they?
Beautiful piece of Art
Your art works are fantastic - very striking! I will visit the Blue Rain Gallery soon.
Love the new work my friend, the oils are incredible!!!!! Hope to see you soon!!!!
So evocative of the British Columbia / Alaska coast.
Luminous masterpiece, thanks for exhibiting.
I adore this sketch. I love the life that Jim brings with his colors, but it is great fun to imagine them as well with a sketch like this.
Really lovely work Jeremy. Would love to see a price list.
Gracias por la pintura...
HERMOSA PINTURA,HERMOSA MUJER SIEMPRE ESTARÁ SU IMAGEN EN MI MENTE AL IGUAL QUE SUS CARICIAS EN MI PIEL TE EXTRAÑO MI HERMOSA GUADALUPE EXTRAÑO TODO DE TI..GRACIAS ERIN CURRIER. POR ESTE HERMOSO ARTE
Very nice! I love it!
Magnifique, Armelle, félicitations!
Fascinating. Wonderful. Beautiful.
Love your work. Friday visiting New Mexico for first time. Hope to see your work in person.
Wow-so much intense concentration and attention to detail! I was just wondering about the bronze casting process as a beginning ceramics student at SFCC. Thank you for making this video! I\'m looking forward to Tammy\'s show coming up, her work has deeply affected me and my own journey in clay.
Very interesting! The sprues are copper wire! Cool!
you are a very talented arist,this is so beautiful!!!the expression on her face is so soft and warm.beautiful horse and background just awsome!!!
Lorenzo is a prince of a guy. A solid artist he is always on the move.Good at branding and business.
Hey sister, your work is incredible just like you!Love ya!
I am totally in love with this Lorenzo
I love Susan\'s work. Her imagination and painting skill is off the charts ! Great inspiration.
Awesome! Lots of work went into it and such color and detail.
Beautiful! Love the design.
Great work of ART.We can do without No More Tears Hair.[What\'s with the black halo?]Vicente
Interesting Concept of La Immaculada Concepcion. Not sure where was he going with this.V
Tony is a prolific artist, I love his unique style
I just love Jody\'s pottery! They are all special. So hard to choose the one for my collection.
\"Interesting use of various materials: captured my heart, don\'t believe I have seen another peice like that in my lifetime\". kudo to you!
i like it!!! Great painting!! With a asian touch!
Highly recommended.A year ago, I acquired a set of the above bas-relief edition. It fascinates me today the same way as it did when I first saw it. I hung it initially in a row of 4 as in the above picture, but recently separated it 2x2 right and left of an open doorway. In both configurations, the pieces communicate strongly with each other. There is a perfect formal balance in each of the pieces and in their entirety. The serene abstraction of the old Navajo symbols is to be admired equally as is the masterly execution of the bronze casting and its patination – it makes the reliefs react very individually to light and gives them gloss as well as deep hues. A great work of art, not only one of Tammy’s best. I’m sure old Margret Tafoya would have loved, admired and commended it – not less than I do.
Great work Tony
Absolutely breathtaking . . .
She is my great leader! She is my way to freedom!
Very nice to see one of my mother\'s piece.
Intriguing art work.
I love that Zuni Bear!
LOVE THIS ARTIST !!! SUCH BEAUTIFUL WORK !!!
A wonderful image to see the wings stretch outside the wooden branch shape\'s natural boundaries. It\'s great how the figure emerges from the branch, with one leg yet to be pulled up. Lot\'s of action and life.
Really fun. A great spirit about this. Simple yet evocative.
You do awesome work, i enjoyed looking at it. thanks for sharing your creative work.
Tammy, this piece speaks to me, priceless!
Love the simple lightness of being . . . .
Gorgeous! Would love to see this piece in person.
A great serendipitous find while goofing off on Face book. I don\'t usually go in for southwest art but really like Tammy\'s work. She\'s managed to successfully marry traditional symbols and shapes with modern materials and put her own twist on it that\'s very refreshing. Beautifully done. I plan to go see it on art walk night.
Very creative, and original thought, in clay!
Doug continues to develop his stunning new style and every new canvas is a delight!
I love this bowl, it\'s stunning with the reflection highlighting the design.
Tammy Garcia, I love your work! In my dreams, I own one.
beaitifully done. please os this earthenware.? and fired in electric kiln?
Preston:I love your work, it is imaginative, creative, stunning. I love the Swan Effigy and the earlier, now sold, Whale Effigy. All totally unique and charming. Continued success to you. Thanks for posting your work online also, it opens our world exponentially. God Bless..............Leah
Thank you both, Tammy and LeRoy for this beautiful Blog and the gorgeous illustrations of your artists\' work. All of it is extraordinary. As I\'ve confessed before, within my own FB page, if I lived near your gallery in SF I would be in BIG trouble. Another of your artist\'s does painting on canvas. You have a protrait of a beautiful woman in a white dress carrying an oriental basket. In my dreams I own that........if only I could.........Having these photographs brings this beauty right into my home, I view it whenever I need inspiration. Thank you for bringing this to us, no matter where we live on earth we can view this, isn\'t that extraordinary? Continued success and stay safe. Leah
Tammy this is wonderful I have shared on my Facebook pageyou seem to do it all,
Call it Scales........
It\'s like a modern day version of Genie in a Bottle
Just a great piece of Art
Your work is immaculante,,,,,,,,,,,,,rock on
This is beautiful ...:-)
hi . artist .good painting
Some of the most beautiful and interesting objects d\'art I\'ve ever seen!
Best work yet!!!
To say this is \'Wonderful Art to Behold\' is to categorically deny the True Aspect of Where to place (a) Comment here, that would Honor You!... Preston. The Art World should crave Your indulgence of Rare Spirit Expressed Art Form. (The Image of the Raven and the Sun) is and always shall be...indelibly imprinted in my memory; always!
Exquisite pairing of materials each highlighted in its best form.
Inspiring to see and to a certain degree - experience the artist\'s process. Thank you.
Absolutely love this!! Make some more. Did not make it to Santa Fe this time; on our way to France.
beautifulllllllllllllllllll! how $
WOW!!! have a similar design in 22 carat gold..nice

What a great piece of art.
I love this sculpture-the colors striking and it\'s unusual which makes it stand out. I love this piece.
WOW...I am a semi retired art and ceramic sculpture teacher, and I am in awe of your work, and the thought behind each piece. I prefer SW style work myself. Keep up the good work.
All your work is so beautiful ! You are a master of all mediums :) I remember your cat drawings :) Have any works of figurative nudes ?
Victor, you\'ve outdone yourself on this Madonna! Can\'t tell you how MUCH I love it!!!Penny
came across this on the blue rain add on the back cover of art & architecture. what a great presentation.

I know she is as beautiful on the inside as on the outside from Aunt DiDi
Love the color and texture !!!!

Love your work Roseta
I find your work exceptionally compelling. The overlay of images - great metaphor for life.
...and I wanted to add, I like the proportions... the placement of the smooth silver, which channels the busy-ness of the multiple strands into a single strong strand of stones. And the clear red ruby is like the meditative expression or eye, to remind us to be clear, strong, and fully alive. Thank you!
This is so pretty! The colors are so strong. I like the long smoothness of the coral and the stark veining of the turquoise. Red coral represents passion and the blood of life (origins from the sea.) Turquoise is a healing stone!
Futuristic and Uniquely interesting!
Bless my soul! This is a knock-out piece!
I\'m a birder and the loon is on the top of my list of favorite birds. This piece is wonderful.
I love the many textures and media and the very modern American Vishnu...
i miss my cousin and bestfriend so much. we still have hopes to see her one day
I have been a fan of Abeyta\'s for several years now - I have 2 of his prints - \'Ancients Remembered\' and \'Singing Yeis - I have traveled to New Mexico on several occasions and believe I with my youngest daughter, her son and a great grandson will be back in Santa Fe near Christmas - I think the name \'Blue Rain\' is a lovely name for an art gallery.. Ann M, Lee
This work is inspiring, it\'s fantastic Niawen, Billy
David Bradley expresses Indian life with humor and intense honesty. He is an exceptional artist...the Indian Norman Rockwell.
Me encanta ...ademas tiene un Ukelele echo de una caja de abanos...maravillosa tu pintura.
KNEW HIS PARENTS...AND FAMILY. GOOD PEOPLE
As someone who has spent a good part of life around horses, cowboys and the west, I am incredibly moved by your work. Your horse is coming unglued and the rider seems right at home. The look of the horse\'s main, tail, hip joints all seem to show the beauty in his ride as well as showing really neat movement. What a wonderful work with the colors you used. I have loved your work since the first piece I saw, and now this is just great. It seems to some folks that it\'s a moral issue to introduce changes or new looks to the characters that make up the west, however it\'s done. It\'s not an attitude I have much empathy for, and with No Fear, you have shown the fallacy in that mindset for more eloquently than I could with a thousand words. What a great piece!
exquisite carved redware avanyu
Very creative, artwork looks like an avanyu.
Awesome job Ben. What a great story of family, pride, love and the sorrow of loss. Peace.
HOW PRETTY YOUR JEWLES ARE SO KOOL
I am so happy i looked on your web site
I love this work. It reminds me of succeeding generations of men and women, moving through life, to a similar patterns and rhythms.
Doug, as you know, we've been collecting your work since the 1980s and are fortunate to have acquired more than 30 serigraphs, etchings, and monotypes. We will always love those styles but are thrilled to see how the large oil-on-canvas pieces have enabled you to capture even more fully, and realistically, the vastness of the American Southwest -- both its land and its sky -- in a single painting. "The Knowing" may well be your most beautiful work ever. We could stand in front of it for hours, taking in its sweep, imagining the sounds and smells of that place, and wishing we could be transported there at that precise moment. Congratulations on your successful, masterful evolution into this medium.
Love the elephants!
An incredible collection.. Where Jules Verne meets Dr. Seuss!
OVER THE TOP TAMMY!!!! STUNNING!!!
Your work is simply incredible!! All of it.....and I love the factthat you are not afraid to break away from the traditional (which you do so beautifully) and work on something so different and so very modern and contemporary, like the series of "BANG" . Your workis an incredible feast for the human eye, brain, heart and soul.All the best to you and your family.James Espinoza
Beautiful piece, great painter.
Tammy, these are wonderful. I love your imagery and the videos explain a lot about where you are coming from on your new pieces. The perfume bottles are a wonderful idea. I look forward to seeing all your new pieces and love watching the videos of the firings especially. Thanks for your inspiration and congratulations. I'm still teaching pottery in Idaho at the local high school. I'm proud to show your work to my students and they are usually in awe at your work, too. Would love to see you working in your studio again.
Take your time to look at these wonderful creations. If you just give them a glance you will miss the secrets that are inside. These are all fun, magical and a return to my childhood on new vehicles. Better that Buck Rogers of Flash gordon could have ever thought of. I wish I could buy the all.
thats my dads carving! coolness
I admire your work - and this piece speaks to me as a photographer documenting the cultures of the borderlands - Gracias for the inspiration and your strong vision of the people and land I have grown to love behind the lens.
I am sure that Maria Martinez would love this piece, if she could see it. I know that I do. I find Preston's art incredibly inspiring, and am very impressed by this collaborative effort.Thank you both!
Strong and brilliant.
I have several of Norma's paintings. Two of them particularly tie in with my own family history. One is her as a child with her mother and grandmother making lye soap in a kettle over a fire; another picking wild blackberries with a storm and lightning in the distance. I did both these things with my mother. Saving my money to buy more!
Hi Doug,Your body of work is stunning. Hats off to you for the dedication it takes to be a full time artist. I particularly enjoyed the video of you painting in your studio. Merry Christmas!
I love the textures on each one of these bracelets but at the same time they tell a complete story.
Is there anything on the planet more beautiful. What is the asking price of this piece and "The Village Under the Water"?
Tony Abeyta's work is a rejuvenating departure from otherwise stagnant imagery. Breaks all common 'perceptions' of contemporary Native American artists involved with culturally relevant subject matter.
Very beautiful art creations you make.
Hi! In santafe for girl weekend and saw your art in magazine!amazing ! Should have saved the art on scratch paper in highschool!! It would be worth money now. Will stop by gallery sometime.
Beautiful as always..
Very well done--one of the better ones I've seen.
Absolutely stunning. I hear music when I look at this. There is absolutely a rhythm created by the trees and the horses gate.No one slings paint like Roseta!
Looks nice miss you grandma
This one really touches a sad part of me. If I could I would cry but numbness keeps me safe from it.
Beautiful light, softness and sensitivity -
Roseta - Love this, you are so extremely talented. I am honored to know you and your work!
LouAnn (@ EF in Santa Fe)
This painting takes my breath away. It reminds me of my vacations to the southwest.
Amazing work Jim! I remember the Vogel storytelling you mentioned in your bio from the multi-family camping trips from years ago!
This is my favorite of them all ! No doubt fetches the highest price$$$$$$$$$$$$$$!!!!!! Rightfully so. The piece has such stunning beauty; flow; intricate compliment of precious stones in the beautiful 18k gold ring. Outstanding artistry!
PS Love, to Jeannie, of course, too! You are two of the finest people I know. I so appreciate your recent favor, and often promote your jewelry and Blure Rain when I wear the two pieces that I own. The "Invocation" gets incredible fire in the honey base Australian opal at varying times in my life.
My lapus of Lazzulie; 22k beads, and Austrailian fire opal beads with the Anamuca Austrailian Opal clasp I am going to wear now . Let "The Invocation" take a rest! Big hugs to you both.
Beautiful as usual. I am so very happy for you and Jeannie for all of your hard work. This is what a WEB SITE should look like.
Be thankful for the wonderfull people at Blue Rain Gallery. They have done a first rate professional job for you.
HER WORK IS IMPECCABLE! IT IS A PRIVILEGE TO OWN AND WEAR ONE OF HER STUNNING PIECES...
This is just spectacular. MERCY!Th e colors and designs are off the charts!
Love this Artist, Wow!
What a powerful place of art; beautiful pieces beautifully integrated. A wonderful place for living.
I was impressed with the original design and use of color.
Wow. I've been a fan of Tammy's art for about nine years now, and it seems as if each new piece just gets more and more beautiful. My eyes and my heart are very happy.
Beautiful, as everything else she creates... It amkes one wish one was just a little bit more affluent
... one of the few, truly original American artists.
Roseta, you continue to inspire and awe us with your art.
Shelley :Beautiful ! Regards, Chris
Rosita's work is wonderful!
You are a true visionist my friend of friends; the only one who sees through my eyes as if they were his own. Beautiful work Lavrio, beautiful
This piece reminds me so much of a smaller version I have that you titled "Matters of the Heart". I so enjoy the pieces of yours that I have purchased. I still want a small jewelry piece of yours.Ken G-Mac
absolutely beautiful we love it
Surely a gift from GOD, this talent. Remarkable. A senior citizen artist from Mo.
This one is so real. Nice picture.
Love this !!!
This is stunning....does that say "Queen"? ..
New work?...wow! Beautiful.
Wow...this is outstanding ....love.
Love Jim Vogel!
Monet Lives! (And has never looked better.)
So beautiful and warm, perfect in every way!
Always impressed. Have a good show.
Love it! Best of luck.
Beautiful! Jim and Leroy! Good luck! Michael
To me this is a piece of work intended to inspire us all to fulfill our dreams. Who could believe that a dog could pilot a plane, but often the impossible is achievable and this is often shown to us in life. The message that I also gain is the pride of the dog in doing what it is doing and at day's end is the "pot of gold" at the end of the rainbow that is the reward for perservering and belief that the seemingly impossible well may be possible. A true inspiration to us all.
I find this painting so incredibly moving. To me it is symbolic of thr resting place of Douglas Kent Hall. All that remains of his wordly life is his shirt that he may have worn during his passing. It is symbolic that we go out of this world with nothing but what we wear at the end. The dogs are lost without their master and best friend. The dog lying across the grave weeps at the loss while the standing dog stares in anxiousness and bewilderment seeking his master. The peacock maintains its regal stance but is with the dogs to share the grief. A beautifully expressive and thought provoking painting.
Your work is stunning and incedibly imaginative and has a unique meaning and emotional connection for each viewer. Joshua, I would very much like to know what motivates you to create such works and what your personal interpretation is behind them. What sparked you to do this piece of work? What mesage do you wish to convey?
Joshua I find your paintings are stunning and thought provoking. They tell a unique story to every viewer through their experiential backgroung and emotional past experiences. I would very much like to know the inspiration that inspires you to create such original and rivetting pirces of art with strong messages and raw emotion
Artist captured your spirit -- Bro, You're incredible!!
Lovely piece. Similar to the Quapaws symbol for rain clouds or a more modern version on rainbows symbolizing hope. Maybe God was telling him "make symbols of hope for all our men fighting for our freedom."
your art is an inspiration for me,,,, am your FAN
This piece is perfect for my husband's 70th birthday... reminding him to slow down and take life easy. You only have so many heartbeats! This small piece is spectacular in form, color and creativity. This whimisical bronze turtle is flawless in every way. LOVE IT! LOVE IT! LOVE IT!
I love to visit your gallery in Taos...it's one of the first gallery's I visited my first trip to NM in 1994, and you always have such beautiful, unique art. I love Deborah's art....only women can relate and describe the "passages" that women go through...lovely!.
Tony The cloud depiction in the thunderstorm just blows me away. Incredible power emanates from this canvas.
What a beautiful picture! The detail is amazing, and that model is HOT!
She never fails to amaze me . Thanks from an artist . don greywolf
TRULY A GREAT ARTIST AND DEEP THINKER.ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO HIS NEW CREATIONS.
A beauty, with some of your trademark colors.
What a view!
Very nice piece
Mr. Vogel's work has at once a sur-reality as well as a story. His paintings are very beautifully conceived using the vernacular.
I love these buds. I want to see them on my altar, greeting each day and saying good night.I want to cherish them.But I have their photograph, and I will give that to the altar, and all will be well.
The strong colors and striking pattern almost makes you forget to see the meticulous rolled clay underneath.Most beautiful. I love the way the pattern comes to such a neat and perfect end just under the lip.
This is so STRONG!The strapping is bone and the ligaments (?) holding the joint together. Mind blowing.And underneath the quiet bowl, holds it handles like the quiet sky holds the earth.This is wonderful Richard.
it is adan, i am building a oratorio en honor del Santo Nino de Atocha, i like this piece, see it has been sold.
Powerful work, vibrant colors. I am stunned, wish I could see this in person. I certainly feel the spirit of it.
Roseta's paintings are so compelling. This is an exquisite piece.
This is outstanding work. Great color areas with a well balenced design.
In the legacy of the Vigils, this is a new direction! Move forward with exceptional arts that transform Indian Art into the 21st Century.
Mr. Conrad Bobiwash
School Principal and Designer
really like this book((a friend got at the santa fe, exhibition)! and the work erin currier! wish i had gotten to see the exhibition! thank you for inspiration and beauty...
Beautiful & symbolic
Beautiful braclet. The artist should be proud.
I just wandered through your website again. It sounds like you are expanding, showing your beautiful work far and wide. That is wonderful!
The beauty of your pieces are stunning.I find the perfection of the (false) baskets so beautiful that it is difficult to believe they can be clay.Thank you for telling me to search for your name in Google. I would have hated missing your beautiful work.I look forward to finding more of your work via Google.Yours sincerelySalome
This is a fantastic drawing. I am from New Mexico in the four corners. It is neat to see the old and modern aspects of the Native American man. I love the traditional dress, modern pants and the corn pollen bag. The details, is as usual unbelievable! Hyrum, your artistic ability continues to amaze me. In college you amazed me but it just keeps getting better. I love the charcoal!
Love the colors and composition of this one!From you last name I take it you have are Dutch, Belgian or German descent? (I'm Dutch)
its nice / amazing
i like ur birdy ;)
Awesome stuff! Curl up w/this and a Robert Heinlein book by the plasma fire in the fireplace!
Dear Doug ,
I just bought Stellar Bloom for my wife for a Christmas present. We are flatlanders from Illinois who love the colors of the earth and sky of New Mexico. I marvel at the way you have captured them, then have unselfishly released them for us to enjoy day after day.
wonderful, I have been transported to theearly 60's, sans zip up Flash Gordon space suits.great humor and wit thanks!
Good technique and wonderful expression. Leaves a lot to comtemplate for those looking.
Super duper! This piece is even more amazing in person!
Powerful painting and astute commentary.
all i can say is WOW! a very moving and provocative piece!
I remember Jim from high school. He was talented then adn is talented now. His paintings are so beautiful and takes you back to a time that our parents went through. Simply beautiful!
It reminds me of all the many times dad and I would find old, abandoned houses and look through their old trash piles.
Norma is my aunt and I know her work as well as anyone. This is one of her best that I've seen in recent years.
just stunning, what other words can i say..
I've always loved "Old Man Jeff"And now you give us "Eyes of Wisdom". Great work Marla !
HE continues to amaze me, awesome!
Beautiful work Mr Singletary. I've spent some time in the PacNW, seen some of the totems these works are similar to. absolutely wonderful pieces sir, keep it up :)
Randall LaGro's work is really fantastic. I was forunate to visit his studio years ago when I attended a class at the Taos Institute of Art. I was then, and remain inspired by his work.
Love this. A revival of ledger art!
Me encanto ! ! !
Could you tell me how much this lovely pot sold for and would itbe about the same price in black? Beautiful site!
looks like cave painting,love the earthy reds
So vivid, emotional, exquist, lively and colorful.
Very very nice, Growing up in the very landscape where alot of your paintigs take place. Let me tell you and anyone reading this looking at these painting has taken me back at least twenty years and gives me lots of memories growing up working the land in Dixon with my grandfather. Good job
Fabulous 1hi Peter
I love Christina's work as well as Jim's work and did not pay attention until now that she is a Vigil.
Awesome work! Achukma!! Your gallery, Preston, and Marcus have done the world a great service in exhibiting this unique art that has roots in the rich heritage of SE Tribal peoples.
This is amazing ..it has an almost agate translucence. Totems/tatoos are gorgeous
His work is awesome, in the literal sense of the word.
More need to know about this culture. Should be amazing!
Wow. I love this image. Even with my poor resolution, the layers are so compelling.
Love your work, David. This one is my favorite, but all are very nice!
is so coolhs
Exceptional work. Balanced and calming with the memories of past images.
Mr.Abeyta, continues to re-make art with the positive and negative space usage within two dimensional space.
INSPIRING beautiful work
Went to Blue Rain Gallery in Santa Fe and was blown away by the wonderful works of art...the paintings, the sculpture, the glass....wow....I am in love
My favorite...This artwork is like reading a great book that you never want to end.
Reachs so deep into the soul, I can hardly bear to look.
Breathtaking, if I were a rich man.....
Wonderful, I like the contrasts...
Pahponee has long been one of my favorite clay artists. I absolutely adore her work, which is so beautiful and spiritual.
I love your paintings, Jim. Very inventive. And Kristin, I am really impressed by your frames too.
I am a huge Tony Abeyta fan, so it would only be natural that Blue Rain is one of my most favorite places on Earth .... Hope to visit again very soon! Jenny in California xx
Maple is a very dense wood, hard to carve. It dulls carving tools quickly. Maple carvings are uncommon. Here is an amazing example of one, and it takes full advantage of maple's ability to hold detail.
"Turned wood" does not begin to describe this. It is obviously made painstakingly from glued, segmented rings. But what of the textured, unpolished portion? The photograph does not reveal its attributes, but there is a tantalizing glimpse of striations on the far left.
I like this one, Richard.
I see no mention of Jim Vogel. He is a force to be reckoned with! I hope to see more of his work!
I love it!
Saw your work at the Heard Museum, 2008. Curious if it was a sand period like Picaso had his Blue (joni mitchell too)
The choice of textures, shapes and color are vibrant and bold like the artist.
This is a beautiful glass vessel. The subject matter is so life-like. The fish actually look like they are swimming. It is a fine representation of Tammy's artistic talent as well as Preston Singletary's. What a wonderful idea it was to collaborate with him. The talent between the two artist is phenomenal. My husband and I love the work Tammy creates, by herself as well as what she and Preston create together. .
i love the clouds and feel of he land. slightly reminiscent of maynord dixon. i hope louie is having fun in the happy hunting grounds.
very nice work
WOW Dad I sure miss you your the best<
LOVE THIS!!!! Tammy's innovation is unparalleled and is a true inspiration....
We have a similar painting (44"x59") acquired in 2003-04 and it remains our favorite of all our collection.
I have collected LDS art work. LOVE YOUR WORK!!!
Thank you Jim for letting us see and hear you at work. It was especially moving to me to hear of your desire to continue the story telling tradition of the family through your art. The tin frames are beautiful. Two hearts beat as one.
Jim's work reveals to me the connection between earth and man; especially in people who work directly with it. Our hands help us to be human. His love of family and his sense of the history of a place, vibrate in his work. Thank you for doing it!
exquisite. and would love to see more work by this artist.
I knew Teresita when I was growing up in Los Alamos, NM. Her mother, Tina, came to our home once a week to clean. We became very close to Teresita and Tina. Our friendship lasted all of Teresita's life.
feels very relaxing and complete
Jim"s painting's are a extension of him, very real and very warm. What talent he has.
I think this is gorgeous! Im not sure what about it I love, but this painting is like all of my favorite things put together! Can you tell me more about it?
tony strocho, ba dove stay?
visual music, the pots are whistling a duet!
a carnival of organic colors and shapes uniting land and sea!
wow...absolutely amazing. you have an amazing gift
unbelievable artistry. exquisite.
How beautiful...who would of thought?
Ben, I am in absolutel awe of you and your work. It moves me
Your art is so beautiful, and I am very proud to be the owner of one of your bronze sculptures that I bought last year in Santa Fé. It's a joy to discover your new creations on the internet. The Fox Charm is faboulous!
With best wishes to you from Switzerland, Barbara
A soul touching image.
The sense of place that this painting suggests is so real. I can transport myself to New Mexico in one glance. The color is so clear and brilliant it gives me chills! It makes me happy.
What can I say? This is another stunning example of Grace Medicine Flower's superb artistry. Exquisite is an understatement. New Mexico and the U.S. are so fortunate to have her because she is truly a Living Treasure.
I just love it!!!!
I really appreciate your work, it inspires me in my paintings. thank you and look forward to more of your visions.
Your hands are truly blessed by the Creator!! Your work is just beautiful and breath taking!!
THE STARK SIMPLICITY OF THIS PIECE DRAWS YOU TO IT.
love this pendant
Takes you right there! There should be a monograph on this guy!
Tell him he is insanely good.He takes my breathe away
Saw one of the pieces in a June ad in American Art Collector and was immediately drawn to it. Unfortunate family matters caused a lapse in persuing information about it further, until last night. I somehow had a vision of the painting and could not remember which magazine or month I had seen the painting. After pouring through about 20 magazines issues over the last 4 months I located the right month and magazine. What is it they say about things that are meant to be. Don't know what will be the outcome, just wanted to say that when a piece of art speaks to one's heart and spirit, it truly does.
Absoloutly stunning use of color! Incredible!
I HAVE BEEN AN ADMIRER OF HELEN HARDINS ART WORK FOR MANY YEARS BEING THAT I AM INFLUENCED BY HER PAINTINGS IN MY OWN WORK. I AM A RETIRED ARCHITECTURAL DESIGNER
Ben...you are blessed my brother! Magnificant paintings!! God Bless you friend...JR
Randy - what a glorious portrayal of william's lake!
A friend brought me a brochure of your work when she visited the
Corning Museum. Your work is stunning! I especially love the
use are using the medium of glass.Look forward to seeing your
work somewhere. Loved the video too! Thanks for sharing your
wonderful talent. stormyc
Thanks for sharing part of your process. Knowing an artists need for solitude while working, You're brave to have let the camera and us into that private space.
I love these works. Wonderful sense of depth that draws me in.
Love this!!! Very interesting
Congratulations on an amazing piece of Art.
If I am correct, I believe you showed me this braclet at the Heard Fair in 2007. It turned out great.
My husband and I saw this in the gallery in Santa Fe a few days ago. We saw many of your other pieces there as well and were dazzled and humbled to see the talent, skill and hard work that you infuse into every piece. We loved everything. Please continue to make more beautiful art for the world to discover and enjoy.
Bless Google, dear Sukey HughesI have always regretted not buying Washi with the paper samples when I lived in Santa Barbara. And I still have one of your Medicine Shirt prints under glass (on my desktop -- wooden desktop, not computer) and a returned card I sent to you, probably 20 years ago. Happy to see you are still doing work with paper. Me, too...paper and silk and sometimes poetry. But I sorta lost my way in Australia. I think/hope that is changing. All the best...come for a visit....Mary ByingtonM~
Arthur Lopez takes a deep traditional craft and applies his exceptional skills to give it a contemporary interpretation that has heightened appeal for today's art lovers.
We saw some of this jewelry at the Sandia casino and we enjoyed its beauty and creation. Who ever makes this jewelry is an expert silversmith and their web pages are great for selling the jewelry.
What a cool guy! Great video! I loved the bit about using an eracer. How I wish I could afford his work!!!!
Saw a co-woker viewing jewelry, took a closer look and was wildly surprised, I knew the face! I did not know just how amazingly beautiful and unique your creations were. I was simply blown away. Congratulations on such talent.
this pottery is meravilhose .barabens.
it was an amazing exhibit! as always-great work amigo!
The video is wonderful! Especially to thoses of us who used to live in NM. I first saw Jim's work many years ago when he was in the Dixon Studio Tour. Thanks for posting this. His work is amazing.
The wine bottle was an amazing depiction of the experience of addiction - the illusion of sharing what becomes a private hell. I really liked the shots of the body of Jesus with the artist's face superimposed and very ethereal, and then the very down to earth close ups of the artist's hands working with his materials - it was very satisfying.
Thanks for sharing these comments and insights on your creations. Beautiful body of work in this show. Best wishes ... Rick and Jerry
What an incredible combination of talents!
The work of Shelly and Tammy together or alone is really amazing! I love the South Western influence.
WOW! Shelley - Oh my, my dear, this is one of the most exciting communications I've received. The background music adds to it - but here I sit, in my AC office in the desert, and I can feel the heat of the fire. Can't wait to see your new work. We'll be in Anacortes June 13 - Flicka sends her love.
the shadow. ..is the third figure in this painting. Or there's much to be talked about, re: that shadow.
your work is magnificent! I saw it in Prescott Valley.
tony has a great feel
very,very nice! i enjoy viewing this piece!
I love this painting!!!!
You are truly a talent Mr. Namingha! Thanks sooooo much for sharing your beautiful work with the world.
I am particularly fascinated by your charcoal/mixed media paintings on paper. When viewing the above before reading the title I was thinking this is a creation story, creating order out of chaos. Very expressionistic and so immensely powerful. If I had this work in my possession I would never tire of looking at it and find new images to fascinate me all the time.
I am a BFA student and have to write an essay on postmodernism and curate (in my mind only) an exhibition of 5 artists and write a curator's essay 600-8-- words long. The above will be in my curated show. I could write 800 words just about your work only.
I wish you good luck and thousands and thousands of more creative hours so we, the public, can enjoy what you have created.
i love the colours
This would also be amaizing on a larger scale. Does she ever do that?
I love Norma's work! I would love to know if she has this style on large canvas's. I think they would be amazing on a large scale.
Joshua....I'm so taken by this painting also....beautiful!!
Joshua, I'm completely awestruck by this new paintings depth and beauty inspired by Douglas that you have painted!!!! He would feel so honored!!
Would love to sit down sometime with you and have you discuss it with me and to see it in person!!!
This pic is really deep and freaky. Expertise in detail. It's like I am there. The fright rises in my heart as the horses rush towards the little child. Sorrow exzudes from the dogs eyes.
They are beautiful!!!!
This is so amazing; such a statement. Lucky for my pocketbook the red horse (Grenada) has sold.
Love it! Wonderful color.
I love this new painting Josh! I recall the frame too!
Wonderful sense of light with contrasting images and colors. The soft warm hues draw the viewer in to a warm and inviting scene. The title is intriguing as well!
Beautiful work. Beautiful video!
Lavrio's/Larry's work is beyond measure. It is a blending of spirit, fire and stone, integrated with the power of gold. He is one of a kind, in many ways. A true master indeed...
Richard,I like the small pots.
Omygawd! What an experience! I couldn't take my eyes off the screen. Ben McPherson has created a work of art unlike anything I've ever seen before.
I love the passion and insight he puts into his peices, how each jem or stone tells it's own story.
Bob, Thanks for your positive comment.
Doug, I too would like to acknowledge your allowing us into your art as you create. It does allow a whole new appreciation of the artist and the image created. It breeds excitement.To the Blue Rain Design Group and Gallery, I thank you for this view of Doug West and the other views you have produced of artists in creation. It is an intimacy and insight I hold most dear. Your commitment to art and artists and your creativity remains unique.
Fantastic work, Jim! Congratulations!
I like this one... :)
i love this it is just gorgouse! omg seriously just totally keep it forever and ever!
Thank you, Doug, for sharing your creative process. I see your "Willows" in a different way now. The video images by Blue Rain Gallery stand alone as art in my book.
my father is Wallace Nez Jr and being around art a lo makes me curious when i first saw this I loved it!
Norma must hav put alot of her heart and mind into this painting it is beautiful
i like this one i like how the painting has the color of an old antique picture.
Thanks Paulette for your comment. This was a first for me, and a lot of fun. Of course by virtue of the size of this canvas, it remains in progress still. But the beauty of the videos produced by Blue Rain Gallery is they offer a glimpse of artist's studios and their individual creative process... a view collectors rarely see.
Hi Uncle Larry... Your web site is MAARRVELOUS!!! love you!! Sarah
Looking at this makes me want to touch it...I can barely make out some sort of pattern...I know there are many patterns here and seeing them all would take time...love it, thanks.
I saw a few of Preston's pieces at the Chicago SOFA show and was blown away. These pieces were the high point of the show, a show with lots of glass artists. The satin black glass was so beautiful and perfect I wanted to carry one around.
Doug, I was smiling the whole time! So fascinating to see how you make such beautiful art! Thank you,.....
nice image. I know you deleted the west side of las trampas chapel for the paintings sake and as the main focus is the woman with candle it is forgivable . you are truly one of the unique painters working in america today.
Doug I love your composition, its nice to know in a world of seven billion people there is someone else who shares my love of natures beauty from the same basic perspective I see and also enjoy the same basic colors i love .I hope one day we can meet in New Mexico and sit down and pick each others brain as well as paint a sunrise or sunset.....SteveP
what a beautiful creation.concratulations
Mr. Abeyta! You are truly one of the most talented artists I have ever seen in our generation and I am truly blessed to have "grown" with you through the years! Not one creation of yours is considered "boring?" They are the most awesome, purest of the pure, creative energies I have ever felt when veiwing your work! You are such an inspirational artist! Thank the Great Spirit for You!!
What a great video of the artist at work. So elegant but approachable. Thanks for posting this.
excellent art quality i love it
Hey Leah this is your Bestest friend eva
I really liked it see ya at skool!!!
Wonderful. New Mexico has it's own Thomas Hart Benton! He captures the essence of New Mexico like no other. What a treasure.
I thoroughly enjoyed watching Larry work! and the music accompanied my interest and encouraged my enjoyment!
The woman's expression captured by the colors and texture used in painting shows the depth of existence of a soul . I am not an expert in art, but have artist friends.Someday I hope to own one of your paintings. Your art is very real and captivating.
My favorite! I particularly like the movement of the storm.
These works are amazing!!!
Every painting that has captured my attention has been by Randall LaGro. I truly LOVE his brush work, the compositions, the colors, the texture. It feels good to my soul! Thank You! I hope to come see his work in life shortly! A trip worth taking!
Awesome! Thank you, Blue Rain and Tony Abeyta, for sharing. It is especially interesting to see how any artist begins and ends a piece.
Blue Rain has become a favorite gallery. I worked on the Larson Jules "Works of Art" project a couple of years back and was most impressed with the gallery and the staff.
This piece is amazing! The detail blows my mind. Good job Richard.
Very Nice and great team work.Wish you where still in Taos.
#1. Tony Abeyta is one of my favorite artists, if not my favorite. Every brush stroke seems to have meaning. #2. His technique seems in harmony with his subject matter, and his subjects resonate for anyone who loves the southwest. #3. I hope he does more large canvases like the one in the video!
Very inspiring to see the level of detail Tammy works in. I am relatively new to pottery. Faces speak to me and my pottery friends keep trying to get me to branch out from masks, but I hear the voices and must answer. I am not a detailed person, so to see the quality Tammy achieves is adding an inspiring push to move to a new level of work. Thank you for this lovely web site. To hear Tammy speak of her work is wonderful, and to hear the exploration never ends is fun to think about. I started art late in life so it is unrealistic to reach the level Tammy is at, but still, the connection is felt. It's never too late, we are never too old, because life is a gift to explore.
Thank you for sharing this spectacular video with the world. I'm from Germany and I love sculpting and arts. The result from Tammy Garcias work of Art is really outstanding.
Incredibly interesting, thank you for sharing. The end result is as beautiful as all of her other pieces, quite magical really.....
Awsome, now if I could just win the lottery.
Any chance of being in on any of the future fireings or just as a spectator? From one ceramic artist/enthusiast to another.
Josh– I really like this image, and the size too. I see Dali all over the canvas.
This just might be my favorite.....it is beautiful! And it is sold.
Your work is amazing! So very proud of you!!!!
What an inspiring video! The fire, artist, earth, friends assisting and of course the beautiful pot. Pure delight. Thank you!
It was nice to have met you Peter. This years show was fantastic and your space setup was well done. You have so many great artists. . See you in Santa Fe next June.
How interesting and fun to see how these amazing pots are fired! I was thinking that it would be a great video to show in a high school art class. I'm assuming that the fire is put out with the sand to allow the pot to cool slowly so that it doesn't crack.Great video! Thanks for sharing it.
what does this painting mean? i am blown away by it. who is douglas kent hall and is that his shirt? great painting.
Elegant flow....very beautiful. The color is soft yet the power of the animals create a bold feeling of action as if they are to leap out into space.

Comment:I saw my first piece of Preston Singletary glass at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA yesterday. It's an absolutely gorgeous raven. Mr. Singletary is an extraordinary artist--in a class by himself. It's my hope that he doesn't become as commercialized as Dale Chihuly. Each of his pieces has an individual presence. Again - breathtakingly beautiful. The most exciting art I have seen in a very long time. It made my heart sing!
This piece has a light hearted, yet elegant form. The use of color is very unusual, especilly for a glass form. Very unusual, very beautiful.
I looked at this painting a few days ago in Santa Fe and I believe it the most interesting and beautiful picture I have never seen. It looks like dreams that need to be explained to me.
Amazing! A wonderful intro to the mystries of art and it's expression.
it's so beautiful work! I love them, but I found, there is no date on all of your work :(
This is extraordinary art. Would own it in a flash if I had the $. Roxanne
As this was my first viewing of shelley muzylowski allen's art, I loved what for me was a surprise ending. I have seen glass artists at work before, and so was very impressed by the physicality and scale of the process. What really struck me was the simultaneous sponteneity (now, that's what I saw; perhaps every possible dribble was under control.) and deliberateness of the process. In my mind I "saw" the final result ... Alchemy! Magic! Not what was in my mind at all! Ah Ha! Beautiful. Thank you for the show!
E. Marie Baker
wow! what a great film. I had never seen you doing your own work start to finish. You seemed so focused and in control.Maybe it's the feminine touch but differant from watching Rik or Bill. Julia and Jacob watched it with me and were facinated by the whole thing. We have to get them out there to really see the scale of it all. Love to you and Ric, Sally
Amazing - I have seen you working in person and now on the video. Just watching it sends me through all sorts of emotions- power, calm, assertive, precision, control and a little anxiety and stress. It is so intense and you perform it so well. And the outcome-magnificent. Carry on...I will live vicariously through you!
I had no idea how you created your beautiful works. Your new horse is lovely but I really love my sea horses.
i love it!
It looks like a lot of hard work, but very nice. Thanks for sending it. I loved the work that was on the gallery card you sent me...........
Very cool photography....how did you do that. I am inspired!!
Congratulations, Turid, these are fabulous paintings.
What a beautiful, ethereal, space LaGro has created in this painting. Seeing it is like being in a waking dream.
This is so amazing. You almost feel as if the wings are really moving with the design s that are in them. I love it!
Thanks for the opportunity to have Bronzesmith do the patina demonstration again this year. As always it is a pleasure to work with the Blue Rain Gallery group. We look forward to exciting new work in the future.
Greetings David,wonderful to view your art! Our Laguna Beach painting still looks back at us each and every day and I continueto enjoy as much as when I first viewed! I like this piece very much and I am sure many will want. Best of luck to you and greetings toArlene and Diego(I hope I remembered his name correctly).! Your not so long lost cousin Anita Mohler
absolutely stunning, gorgeous!!
Wish I could have been there, the video was beautiful.
We purchased two of Kevin Short's works, "Let's Go" and "Abiquiu," from Blue Rain from among this collection. Two years later, we admire the work even more than when we first saw them in the Gallery.
Enjoyed the video. Davids work is outstanding.
See you there
There's that beautiful number 8 again.
magnificant. No matter what the art is was absolutly fabulous. They were all beautiful and you could see the heart and soul they put forth in their art.
breathtaking video. Beautiful creations. I wish I was going to be at the show! What an experience.
I LIKE YOUR PAINTING " MYSTIC WATERS" , EXCELLENT JOB.
Exquisite piece. Looking forward to seeing more of this fused work. Simply beautiful.
It is amazing to see Jim Vogel at work and to hear him speak about his paintings and inspiration. It adds yet another layer of interest to his paintings. Thank you for sharing this insightful piece!
OMG I LUV U ORLANDO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! UR ART IS SO SICK AND AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG WHEN IS UR NXT SHOW!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? I <3 U!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Beautiful. Reminds me of a quilt. It captures the spirit and power of nature.sf
I was so pleased to see Deborah's work in your gallery on Monday. Her graceful forms are pleasing and the imagery compelling. And Richard Zane Smith's new pieces are as intricate and close to the earth as possible!Wonderful visit. Thanks, Susie Fowler
My highlight of Spanish Market was the Friday reception at Blue Rain Gallary in Santa Fe. Being able to view the works of Gustavo Goler, and Jim Vogel. I feel that the Retablo and Bulto works of Victor are second to none. Sorry to hear that the Taos Gallery was closed but the future is only bright for the folks at Blue Gallery. Looking forward to Spanish Market 2009 !

Jim's work is amazing, I was born in Santa Fe and hope to own one of his paintings one day "soon".LB
Thank you for showing the artists at work. There is nothing more fascinating than the creative process.
This piece is beautiful but the title would flow better if it was "Las Golondrinas"
Enjoyed the video--bacground music too loud when he was speaking. Video give interesting information.
Tony Abeyta continues to grow in ways that are truly inspirational. This is great work period.I hope artists of all stripes have access to watch this artist florish as continues to redefine and refine represent good art.

≈ Tony... you are so super ≈xox, jen
This painting is so New Mexican, in that la jente know that as we live, close by are our loved ones are at rest and that some day we will join them. Not a terrible thing but knowledge that gives us peace. As usual Jim has hit it right on the head.
I LIKE YOUR WORK, ITS SO COLORFUL ,STRIKING,,, IT LOOKS DELICIOUS TO THE EYES.
Great looking! The detail is outstanding.
wow! this is amazing!
I love the attention to detail with the light, shadow, and car
This painting is amazing! I love the expression on her face - it says so much
this is a beautiful synthesis of material and form, lovely.
Joshua, This work is amazing I love the direction you are heading in. The movement and light and color combined to make a beautiful escape in to the story of this painting. I am glad to see you new works!! Miss you.
When I viewed the video clips of my neighbor Deborah Rael-Buckley on this site, I was struck by all that her art form demands of her. The physicality of her whole body as she moves around her creation, bending over it, molding it, her arms and hands building, layering, and smoothing it; a disciplined technical skill required to control what could be a run-away process; a mental and spiritual concentration exacted to “gather the images” from memory and even from what has been forgotten; and a keen presence to be at one with what is becoming in her studio: all signs of a master ceramicist.
When I first stepped into Deborah’s studio a few years ago, I stood before a ceramic sculpture in tribute to her father-in-law who had died from cancer, as my father recently had. Her sculpture held memories and symbols so powerfully present and real in all of their dimensions, that all I could manage to do, was to turn around and walk back home accompanied by my father, remembering him again, and how much I had loved him and still do.
Eerie and exquisite...such mastery and control of the medium.
Great site Josh.The art work is wonderful. Great detail. Keep it going. Ann
i now know why people think they see UFO's in New Mexico. This pottery is out of this world! Well done Russel Sanchez, well done indeed.
I am amazed by the depth of meaning within the pieces that Deborah Rael-Buckley creates. She creates these sculptures that are life sized without any internal support system. They have so many hiddent meanings that relate to her background, New Mexico culture and life in general. They are incredibly rich and beautiful. The colors and shapes make them unique on their own but there is this deeper message that lies beneath the surface that waits to be interpreted. I happen to be an owner and and am always surprised at the reaction generated when people encounter Deborah's art for the first time. Once people get beyond the sheer beauty of the sculpture they ask numerous questions about the symbolism incorporated within the piece. She is able to mesh earthy beauty with commentary on life.
alright ..this is my new favorite....In Love with it....thank you. x x
Really dig the 'ropes' ....and the balance of it all...are those "chads"...? hhhmmm interesting...
Oh love this ...reminds me of being a kid and watching the sky on a summer afternoon.....Thank you.
Father and Son -- Simply stated, Genius!
This is such a beautiful piece, there are so many interesting details to look at.
What a magnificent composition! This may be the best Vogel I have ever seen. And the frame is perfect for it--not at all overwhelming--an excellent choice.
I think of cities as vulnerable places,places where people could panic if food was not delivered by trucksor when power failures wear out even a heros patience...I'm not a doom and gloomerI just like being awayfrom such man-made places
imagine a pool of water and fossil stonesI love to follow the creeksand wandering and winding i find secret poolsor hidden rock gardens of incredible beautyand in one flash flood a creek bed is cleared,new boulders,and new swirls of sand and gravelas a record ,a testimony of time and endless change
Reviving our Wyandot language has been a passion of mine also to draw inspiration from my ancient Wyandot ancestors. this piece combines Wyandot formand its castellation rim with the ancient ancestors of the Pueblo peoples whose corrugated ware still dot the ground in the southwest.I love to blend ancient techniques of this land and to come up with something that feels as if it has lifeOur Life is actually that meeting place of past ancestors and our future descendants
Co-creating along with the action of naturethis is a time in my life to occaisionally let the materialshave a voice in themselves and not always be trying to overpower the clay forcing it by my own minds eye...Its difficult for us perfectionists to step back...to allow clay to remain clayI love finding these roots with rocks imbedded. Its spring time,warm enough to wade the creeks,looking for such treasured pieces of wood and to keep an eye out for Water moccasins who also enjoy the roots along the banks.I saw six of them last time i was out in waders.
I call this one "Handled Piece" as a bit of a pun.I couldn't believe my fortune to stumble on this incredible rooton the edge of a torn out bank out here on Sycamore Creek.I doubt I will ever find another so hand like in all its ways.The pot was made especially for the wood piece itself.An alternative way to display it is to place the vessel on a baseand place "the hand" so it is reversed,with its thumb in the airand sort of cupping the "fingers" around it.I was a little sad to see this one go...
This particular piece i did just as the spring colors all around us were replacing the gray and bare woods of winter.In just a few weeks the hardwood forests that are so still and somber have become a busy force of bursting life . the adders tongue shoot up starlike blossoms under the still bare canopy of oaks and the trillium and May apple send spikes unfurling as they push through the decomposing leaves from another season. Then comes the redbud and the dogwoods.here I tried to contrast the green vines of new life with the bare trees showing winter coming to an end
this was a fun piece to create.I call it simply "Crazy Arrow"the piece of root i found along Spring River north of here,the arrow points i made out of local chert,and the turkey wing fletching was from feathers given to me by tribal members of the Wyandotte Nation of Oklahoma .The clay is native Oklahoma clay dug from a ranch in the Vinita area. The owners of the ranch are Cherokee and I'm so pleasedthey so willingly share with me and even attending the prayers before the digging of clay starts.and sometimes sharing a pipe of traditional tobacco.
what is the value of talent? Beautiful pot.
Uau!Amazing! I know that charcoal is very difficult to work with!Great work!
Way awesome!!!! You are a master artist!
In 1994, a young 27 year old female was awarded "The Governor's Award for Excellence in the Arts" to include "The Allan Houser Memorial Award". I would think that she was the "youngest" to receive such a high honor. This artist that I am speaking of is, Cheryl Joe, an absolutely excellent sculptor! I wish you all the best for also winning such a high honor. Congratulations!
This most deserved recognition could not come too soon.
We love your work so much - THANK YOU.
Stew and Maryann Matthews
Wow! Tammy has a very good sense of design in all the 3-dimensional elements. Her works are superberb! The designs can be moved around to where it works at all angles. Genious at her art, I might say! You rock the art world with your style! Very nice!
This is terrific news. Scott and I have been long time members of SWAIA and really appreciate your doing this.
Just searching on the internet and found my name and comment in your blog....how amazing. I'm looking forward to be able to afford an other piece of art from you.
Looking at this drawing almost made me cry. Not only because of the skill you have with charcoal, but this little girl looks a lot like me when i was a little girl. It brought back many memories. It is an excellent drawing!!!!!!!!
Amazing, quite beyond anything that I have seen.....
Beyond words really.
This cradle is exquisite!!!!
All these paintings have social intimacy but embody a spiritual quality as well--especially this painting of a dugout boat in the cypress swamp.
Beautiful work, looked like it went by really smooth. I am impressessed that the younger generation is getting back into glass work. It requiers lots of patients, some artists are not ready to handle.
These water colors are beautiful. Makes you feel like you are right there. Love them. The ones that are not names should be "Peace" "Tranquility" .
thank you for saving my spirit
Inspiring and beautiful! Can't wait to get to Taso next month and see more in person. We'd love to see more videos like this of all the artists at work. Thanks!
We found this art and video very interesting and the music accompanied the process well. We'd like to see more of this and Tony A. is inspiring to watch. The art is symmetrical and the video brings that out in Tony's organic methods while being relaxing to watch. It would be great to hear Abeyta speak about his art too. Miss the gallery in Taos, you don't know till it's gone...
Love this piece!
This is a very interesting piece. All things are inter related with nature, human form and the crow from the animal world. The subtle colors are beautiful and the bone-like rungs of the ladder are so connected to the past. I can't say any more until Deborah goes into her articulate speaking about it. I hope she will do that.
I am new to this artist and this picture truly speaks to me !!!
What an interesting idea, to join a wooden piece for a handle with leather to fasten the handle to the pot. I've never seen anything like this and I wanted to let someone know that I appreciate seeing functional art at its best.
This blanket was designed by George Hunt Jr., a Northwest Coast artist from the Kwakiutl tribe. The original limited edition series of the blanket, made in 1995 for the American Indian College Fund, consisted of 1200 blankets. Each blanket came with a stitched on label showing the blanket's number in the series(such as 200/1200).
Reproductions of this blanket were made about 10 years later and were also sold to benefit the American Indian College Fund. Per their website "Tribute to My Grandmother Mary Ebbets, Anislaga" was designed by George Hunt, Jr., a renowned woodcarver of the Kwakiutl tribe of Vancouver Island. Mr. Hunt, Jr. dedicated the design to his great-great-great-grandmother, Mary Ebbets, or Anislaga. As Tlingit legend has it, Anislaga was the living link between the ancient Tlingit culture and contemporary tribal weaving traditions. In ceremonies the blanket is "danced," bringing to life the story of how Mankind was taught to weave by Raven, Lynx, Sea Monster and Bear; when worn, these sacred images surround the wearer."
This is an exceptional piece. Unique to Bruce's work in the sense that it could symbolize the many challenges we face in our own unique spiritual quests for truth. It is both strong and gentle. In my opinion, Bruce LaFountain is one the best scluptors in the world. Having been and lived in Italy where many artists have their pieces constructed and watching the skill of these people and the process that is involved in obtaining marble, which few can work with; To watch Bruce LaFountain work with stone is an art in and of itself. Few have remained true to the craftmanship and Bruce is one of those who can transcend all barriers and will exempfy this within his work. Although, many pieces "appear" similar to the untrained eye, if we look beyond the surface of Bruce's work we will see he will show us that life will reflect art and art will reflect life of which neither are static.
I am just in awe over these piece on this site. This one especially I would have to say is my favorite. I feel a connection here. Maybe its because of my name. Misko asin ekway (Red rock woman) It look like a strong spiritual person. Love You Bruce
We love our Tammy Garcia piece and it was a great pleasure to meet her this past August. She is amazingly creative and seems to have a feel for many different media which is unique. We hope and trust that she will continue to stretch her talent to places only she can determine. Keep up the great work, Tammy!
I never saw anything so beautiful and exciting. All the jewelery is fabulous. Bernice
We have enjoyed our Mardi Gras bronze piece so much and would love to have one of these beautiful glass pieces. The nation is lucky to have such a great artist creating such a treasure. Thank you.
I discovered Tammy's work on a recent trip to Sante Fe. The precision is remarkable. How she can transform her mind's eye into the material's available is the talent of a true genius, but first and foremost, it must be in her mind.
Art is in the minds of the artist and the beholder. She is doing her part.
absolutely fabulous. One of your best, Randy, in my mind!
Such talent, is really quite aweinspiring- makes one wish it possible to become an instant millionaire. Imagine having such a view in every day life.......
i most particularly love the work of randall lagro and gerald cormoyer - stunning color and texture
This is a very awe inspiring piece,I am a northwest coast artist and a great admirer of your work. Paul Siples Anchorage Alaska
Hello, I like your work. And you etch it out with an exacto knife, wow. I'm wondering how you correct a mistake. Someday I will buy one.
Have visited both of your galleries often with my friend Jeanne Williams; they have a home in Taos. We shall be looking forward to seeing you at SOFA! The video is very well presented. It would be great if you could add a verbal description of him/his work (although the music is pleasant). Will he be demonstrating At SOFA? Thanks
Each more beautiful than the last.
Your work is beautiful. Hopefully one day we will meet. I am also a Laguna Potter and have always admired your work..
wonderful!!! good to see another type of native artist other than what we are so used to seeing. iam native but modern! thanks devin
Oh my god...your work is really nice!
WOW UR PAITINGS HAVE INSPIRED ME TO BECOMA A PAINTER THE WAY YOU HAVE SO MUCH DETAIL TELLS SO MUCHJ ABOUT THE PAINTING
It is awesome!!!!
The of best of luck, you have wonderful cast of designers to bring Indian Art to the next level.
Hi, It is facinating. I always love to look at your gallery of new artists and paintings. I am a big fan and hope to be able to purchse more from you. ( price permitting), Pari Andrews, NY
Leroy & Co: Great news! I've been traveling to visit and purchase from Blue Rain in Taos and Santa Fe...it will be great to see your team at SOFA. Warning -- it's cold up here in November! Bring your mittens....
Mindblowing - eclectic - beautiful work! I always have a smile on my face when viewing Tony's work. He is an inspiration to emerging artists, like myself, and is a great ambassador for his style of painting and his love of the land and his native history.
The new gallery space is beautiful. We couldn't get enough of it during Indian Market. Thanks also for a great Indian Market show ... the art, the glass and patina demonstrations and, of course, the staff make it one of our favorite annual events. You never let us down.
All our best wishes.
This is absolutely beautiful! Thank you for taking the time to acknowledge women.
If I may be so bold, I'd like to suggest you place your astounding works of glass art into a slide show format.
I found it almost painful to wait for the next frame to be shown.
You are blessed with a gift.
Unbelievable evolution of an artist. I bought a tiny piece with a single bear paw many years ago at the Eight Northern Pueblo show. Even as a teenager she showed a genius for form and proportion. Very few artists reach this level of complexity and still produce stunningly elegant pieces. It is a joy to see!
Roxanne's figures speak directly to the heart and will be loved by generations.
Wonderful! I am Jennifer Esperanza's Mother and have her photo of Tony holding one of his paintings while walking on its site. I love the photo and the this video brings Tony's work to life. Hoping to see some of the work in on my next trip to New Mexico.... thanks for the experience. CD
Takes my breath away !
I love this! Great work Tammy! Donna
Insanely great. Truly one of the great artists of our time.
Could you provide information on prices and shipping for the three bear set?
WOW!!!! WOW!!! again...what a gorgeous piece of art.
Would like to see ordering and pricing information. Exceptional work. Very interested.
this video really makes me inspired, thanks for sharing!
I love this piece, it is truly out of sight!
This blog is an unexpected pleasure and rich opportunity to get to know the exceptional artists of New Mexico, our adopted home and dream come true. Art and history are the foundations of this remarkable celebration of life that we now call home . . . and we are grateful for the rich blessings that the Blue Rain Gallery provides.
Ms. York, thank you for your sumptous contribution to our world.
As I sat and watched this video of Tammy and Star Liana York I could just imagine how much Wally would have loved this piece of art.
Thank you for keeping me on your e-mail list, Tammy.
Anita J. Lange (E. Walter Lange)
I love your work! The horses and bears are my very favorites! I am a teacher in West Virginia. I visited Blue Rain Gallery when my family and I took a vacation out West last August. I fell in love with some of the art work being displayed in the Blue Rain Gallery.
I hope I can see your work "up close and personal"
the next time I visit Santa Fe!
God has richly blessed you with your creative gift.
I will pray that He continues to bless you.
You are blessing us with your fabulous talent.
Thank you so much-
Kris Hinrichs :)
Thank you! That was so enjoyable! Its a pleasure to hear the artist talk and explain her work.
I so love your work and find the suggestive qualities are very intriguing. Creating art
from an inner source and dialogue is very exciting for the viewer and especially the
A wonderful beginning. Our home is full of works of art because we value creativity. Thanks for opening a window on this wonderful human endeavor.
Great beginning! How about some interviews?
Wow! Thank you! In a future edition I hope you will include comments from the artists.
Thanks for a glimpse of what most of us do not get to see...love to see you expand this idea...keep up the good work.
Wow, Leroy. That was cool. That was a real good piece, very emotional and super beautiful - it was good to see them in their studios like that. The blogs are cool, it really makes one feel a part of it.
Hope your well, and hello to Tammy and your family.
Your former employee,
Well done, good beginning. I would like to see a longer presentation with some comments by the artists themselves.
the idea of watching an artist work online sounds very cool to
me - hope your blog efforts continue.
The blog is a great idea. Sorry we will still be in Arizona for your big weekend. Congratulations.
Richard & Doris
Eager to visit the studios of the excellent artists you represent.
great idea very innovative looking foward to the tour and the works
Dear Tammy, Leroy and the Staff at Blue Rain Gallery,
Now that the dust has settled, we would like to recognize what a great honor it was to host the patina demonstration at your gallery during Indian Market, 2006. It was a pleasure to get to know some of the collectors and share with them our enthusiasm in achieving the highest level of quality we are capable of attaining in the art market today.
The Staff at Bronzesmith
Congratulations Blue Rain Gallery and all of the artists on a successful Indian market! The work was fantastic!
Jim and Christen Vogel
I do wish that galleries and museums would stop assuming that everyone who buys art is a "collector." Many occasional buyers of art (my wife and I included) buy what we see thatt we like and can afford at the time. To buy is not necessarily to "collect."
Thanks for the "4 points" on buying. Now...how about elaborating a bit on each. That would be great. For instance, What is the significance of the number of pieces the artist produces each year? What does one look for to see if a piece is well made? What do you mean by "pricing integrity"?
Thanks for the good blog.
I love your website. I have only been to your galleries once, but I was able to visit both in Taos and Santa Fe. You have amazing art and the galleries are beautiful. Keep up the good work!
