Wide Bay High Desert Repeat in 2015
Unsettled Gallery and the Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery (Australia) will collaborate again to put on an exchange exhibit during September/October 2015.
April 8 - May 2
We are pleased to welcome Adam L. Labe and Robin Wiener Labe for their first featured exhibit in the gallery. The artists' reception takes place on Saturday, April 11 from 3 to 6 PM. Both artists earned their MFA degree at New Mexico State University and have exhibited extensively both locally and nationally.
Adam Labe's work for OBJECT/image consists of abstract sculptures. His work he says is a, "distillation of his ongoing effort to explore the relationship between craft, fine art and industrial design." The post-minimalistic sculptures are cut from polyurethane tooling board (a substance often used to prototype product models) or hard Maple combined with other materials such as epoxy resin, linen, brass and aluminum tubing, linen, graphite and colored pencil.
Robin Labe's recent work is fundamentally non objective that, with manipulation of drawing inks and other media often -- in this exhibit -- take representational figurative forms. A leaning toward working more spontaneously led her to begin working with drawing inks on Mylar and paper. She is "guided by intuition and her own visual language as she weaves her compositions using color, line and intuitive mark making."
In addition to the artists' recent work brought together in the exhibit OBJECT/image, the musician Jake Mossman will bring his classical and flamenco guitar repertoire to the gallery on Thursday, April 23. (See the sidebar for more details.)
Please join us for the artists' reception, Jake Mossman's musical performance and throughout the exhibit to enjoy art, music and conversation in our old adobe.

Unsettled Gallery is a unique, contemporary art gallery in southern New Mexico, displaying a diverse range of art styles and mediums by a select group of artists.
Located along the site of the celebrated Camino Real (the 'Royal Highway') within the Original Townsite of Las Cruces, New Mexico, the gallery building is an historic, adobe structure. Over its long life, the building served many purposes: family home, apartment, fruit stand, packaged liquor store drive through to name just a few of its personalities. Acquired in 2003 by an artist interested in saving old adobes, rescue and restoration began. The current owners completed a nearly one-year restoration and renovation in 2007 launching the building into use as an art gallery for which it seems happily suited.
