First Friday Artscrawl— Inpost Artspace Reception: Cold Sweat— work by Rita Bard, Loc Huynh, and Laura Wacha

Cold Sweat is a three-person exhibition of new work by Rita Bard (Santa Fe, NM), Loc Huynh (Denton, TX), and Laura Wacha (Bernardo, NM). In uncertain times such as these, humor is a tool that can give us relief while simultaneously sharpening one’s critical engagement with a subject. All three artists in this exhibition employ humor to engage with a pastiche of considerable topics: Comics, Pop art, theater, television, interpersonal dynamics, politics, and popular culture are but a few references that come to mind when viewing the work of the these highly energetic and colorful artists. The writer Kimberly Drew states, “anxiety is the opposite of freedom. Anxiety is like wading in fear. We’re all buoyed by what we have and what we’re willing to do to keep it. And there’s a fine line between inner peace and ignorance.” These artists, like us, are dealing with personal and collective anxieties, and through their individualized freedom of expression, they help both artist and viewer grapple with both complex and mundane issues.

Exhibition dates: October 27, 2019-February 1, 2020

First Friday Artscrawl: Inpost Artspace Reception: FLOW RIDING EDGE WHISPRS: WORK BY timothy jason reed

A dynamic selection of abstract drawings and paintings by Santa Fe-based artist timothy jason reed, who describes his work as “…whispers and rhythms…ideas and inspirations, gently inviting you into their dance / swimming with the song of your gaze.” Born in 1976, reed was raised in Tongva land (Southern California) and has been living and working around po’oge (Santa Fe) for approximately ten years. His large paintings present powerful evidence of a self-imposed challenge to connect to a creative “flow state” directly influenced by an intensely productive and enlightening drawing practice. This astonishing work is intuitive, vibrant, and kaleidoscopic, while earnestly uniting with deeper channels of collective consciousness.

Exhibition Dates: August 19- October 26

Artist Reception: First Friday ARTScrawl, Friday, September 6, 5 – 7pm

Exhibition may be viewed during the reception, Outpost performances, box office hours, (M-F 2-5:30pm), and by appointment. Gallery is FREE of charge.

Edgar Sorrells-Adewale was born in Philadelphia, PA and received his BS degree from Morgan State College (now University), Baltimore, MD, as well as an MFA from Pennsylvania State University, State College, PA.
