JFA Welcomes Leigh Waggoner

Leigh Waggoner, an emerging mosaic artist, will be in residence at the gallery from June 20 – 25. Her abstract work employs color, texture, and andamento (the flow of the tesserae) to speak to the viewer. She uses all manner of stone, some stained glass, Italian smalti, and miscellaneous objects in her works. Each piece of stone or glass is hand-cut with the centuries old tools of hammer and hardie. Visitors to the gallery can watch Waggoner as she uses this technique while she works on a current piece. A reception with light refreshments will be held on Saturday from 3-5 pm.

“Holy Relics and Reliquaries”
By Jim Baker

On display at Jemez Fine Art Gallery,
17346 Highway 4, Jemez Springs, New Mexico
June 26 – July 9, 2020

A relic is something that has historic interest because of its age and associations with the past, and that serves as a keepsake. In the Catholic faith a relic is an object esteemed and venerated because of association with a saint or martyr. The word reliquary comes from the French word reliquaire, meaning “a receptacle, or shrine, for keeping and displaying sacred relics and objects.”

The “Holy Relics and Reliquaries” collection is inspired by Medieval Era religious relics and reliquaries, and addresses my passionate interest in Holy Scripture and the collecting of fossils, rocks, religious symbols and artifacts from antiquity. Each reliquary is nuanced with textures and layers created by carving, applying handmade papers, painting, and sanding that make the surfaces appear to be softened by time. A variety of components are incorporated into these assemblages, each designed to represent and honor an aspect of my faith.

The collection is on display at Jemez Fine Art Gallery,
17346 Highway 4, Jemez Springs, New Mexico, June 26 – July 9, 2020

Jim Baker is a New Mexican multi-media artist working in the creation of three dimensional sacred sculptures. His work is strongly influenced by spiritual and religious symbols, metaphors, relics, and artifacts.
