Jude Barton presents Meditation on a Square: A Neo-modern formalist approach, intentionality and freedom within structure. Jude explores the form and function of line, shape and space; creating a certain uncluttered calm while maintaining liberty within the fragmented and blurred iconic images she often uses in her work. Barton’s blending of shadows and shades contain nuances of serenity; an organic vision brought into focus through intentional structure. Freedom found in structure.

Brian Haley, who exhibits primarily on Canyon Road in Santa Fe, NM, explores the synergies and contrasts between clean rolled steel and distressed wood. Haley works to assimilate the disparities between century old hand salvaged mine wood and mid-century modern design characteristics to create one of a kind tables, chairs, and wall art.

Leslie Jorgensen travels across the Rocky Mountains and the west, skiing, hiking and biking along the way. She paints the landscapes she visits and the outdoor activities within those landscapes. Her landscapes are abstracted and playful.
