It’s with much gratitude that we show the sculpture of Alaska-based artist Lena Snow Amason-Berns (Alutiiq) in our “Masters of Disguise III” exhibition this year.

Behind the Scenes: Drew Michael and the No Good Very Bad Day

Making art is hard. For every work that arrives in the gallery, there are many that never do, whether they are glass that falls off the pipe at the last moment; ceramic that explodes in the kiln; or stone that cracks at the wrong moment. Sometimes, the idea is there but the material just won’t […]

New Artist: Karver Everson

There are lots of new faces in our mask exhibition “Masters of Disguise III”, and we’re not just talking about all the masks.

Southwest Art Magazine Feature on Hib Sabin Out This Month

“The animals are stand-ins for humans,” Sabin explains. “The boats and canoes carry humans between the spirit and human worlds as well as through the different periods in their lifetimes. You have to die in the old period to move on to the new.” Indeed, universal themes of transformation and journeying are common in his artworks, including the transitional moments between life and the […]
