Page Coleman Gallery presents The Grand Expand, New 3D work by Ali Gallo, Gwyn Metz, Maria Ross. Three women sculptors strut their stuff at the newly expanded Page Coleman Gallery. Ali Gallo creates powder coated steel abstractions that resemble ribbons blowing in the wind. Gwyn Metz recomposes disparate debris into dysfunctional objects such as fossil-free vehicles and doll-like characters. Maria Ross works wonders with wire and paint to create airy, ghostlike forms that have both organic and architectural references.

Weyrich Gallery
2935 D Louisiana Blvd. NE – 883.7410 – weyrichgallery.com
Artist Talk 1-2pm
Harriette Tsosie will have acrylic works and encaustic pieces. Her encaustic paintings are made with both bleached and unbleached beeswax and Damar varnish. She likes working with encaustic because of its luminosity. Light hits the surface of the painting but is also refracted by the oil pigment suspended in the wax. Tsosie, states, “Linguicide” references the death of language, which includes both extinct (no longer spoken) and dead (still in use of scientific, legal or religious functions) languages. Since language embodies culture, I believe such extinction and death is serious. We even today see the Native languages here in New Mexico, most of which have never been written, under siege. Witness the desperate efforts by their speakers to preserve them through language immersion programs and developing a written form for them.” Show closes April 27, 2015
