Page Coleman Gallery
6320-B Linn Avenue NE – 238.5071 – pagecoleman.com
Page Coleman Gallery presents Mostly Black featuring 4 Albuquerque artists whose artworks are…mostly black. Rachel Zollinger fabricates highly refined copper and wood wall sculptures. These abstract cubes are approximations of terrain that describe profile and elevation as contours and planes. Scott Palsce’s tin, aluminum and steel sculptures are bold in shape and simple in form. His sculptures are strongly architectural and skillfully crafted. Leigh Anne Langwell creates photograms and pin galaxies to explore astronomy, cosmology and art. Her images are arrangements of simple elements that serve as metaphors for the workings of science and culture, poetry and beauty. Page Coleman’s new wire animals are full of animation, personality and humor. Animals include rats, mice, elephants, dogs and other yet to be identified creatures.

Artist Talk 1-2pm
Echoes of Nature features Patty Hammarstedt, Abstract Calligraphy/Mixed Media Painting; and Ceramics Artists Jack Troy, Rob Barnard, Lucien Koonce, Susan Kotulak, and Kevin Crowe. Madelyn Garrett, retired Curator from the University of Utah Marriott Library, states, “Hammarstedt’s abstract calligraphy evokes, a visual conversation, discovering its own unique voice and saying what it has to say.” For nearly three decades artist Barnard has been firing pottery in a Japanese style wood kiln. His unglazed bowls, vases, and teapots are functional ceramics, but they are also thoughtful works of art, representing a balance of discipline and chance. Jack Troy is a potter, teacher, and writer, from Huntingdon, Pennsylvania. He does Wood-fired stoneware and porcelain pottery. The show closes July 24.
