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.

Benjamin Green

Special Event Saturday
August 1, 11AM – 6PM

A week-long exhibit in the Jemez Fine Art’s South Gallery introduces the work of new member Benjamin Green. Beginning July 31 and running until August 6, the show will display watercolors, oil paintings, photographs, and “broken fence board” landscapes. Green is a self-taught artist; his work does not fit easily into existing categories or descriptive labels. He says, “My work is unique. I break most of the rules of traditional art. I want the viewer to know my work was created by a person rather than printed on a press.” On Saturday August 1, Green will set up a booth in the gallery shade displaying all his “gift” art. With the cancellation of most craft fairs due to the Covid-19 restrictions, this may be the only time this work will be available for sale this year. Green will be displaying bookmarks, cards, books, and smaller works of fine visual art. The gallery exhibit runs from July 31 to August 6, 11-4, closed Tuesday and Wednesday. The booth will be open from 11-6 on Saturday; guests will be able to “meet and greet” the artist with plenty of time and room for safe, social distancing.

Now more than ever, most of us understand how precious our breath is! The ability to take a deep breath is of value everyday. We have the gift of life to live well, prosper, cherish and love. This is the theme of the new art show at Jemez Fine Art Gallery, running from October 2 - 15, 2020.

Everyone is invited to come greet husband and wife team, James A. Vigil and Susan Vigi-Vigil at their reception Saturday, October 3, 1-4pm. They are original members and co-founders of Jemez Fine Art Gallery in Jemez Springs. James is showing bronze sculptures and stone carvings, and Susan has paintings done en plein air (outdoors) during all four seasons in the beautiful Jemez landscape.

Pillow Show postponed to later date due to pandemic.
