Unsettled Gallery Blog: Coming Soon!
2/22/2014: With a push and some "how-to" help from Mary Robertson, one of the gallery's artists, who managed to sit us down, make us focus and voilá a wordpress template was selected and features demystified. We're not there yet, but we're close. So, stay tuned.
9/13/2013: Sadly, it appears that the blog is "on the back burner" so soon it won't be, but it will be forthcoming . . .
2/10/2013 update: We have a name for our new blog. It will be titled "Art Notes" to reflect our wide ranging interests in, and musings about, art. We're currently struggling a bit with WordPress, a blogging software product, but stay tuned here for progress updates.
August 9 - August 30
East Gallery: Beyond the Veil, Jean Reece Wilkey
West Gallery: Home Base, Nolan Winkler
Beyond the Veil and Home Base open at Unsettled Gallery on Saturday, August 9 with a casual, early morning (8 AM!) Artists' Reception and Talk. Enjoy eye-opening refreshments and visit with like minded early-bird art enthusiasts.
Around 9:30, Jean Wilkey will discuss her work followed by Nolan Winkler discussing her art in a gallery "walk around." Both artists will be available to talk with you throughout the event.
Wilkey has studied with Casey Baugh, Ted Seth Jacobs, David Kassan, Daniel Keys, Robert Maione and Melissa W. Miller. She has exhibited her work nationally and internationally with work in collections in more than a dozen countries.
Jean Wilkey has exhibited in several two-person and group exhibits at the gallery since 2012. As a member of the gallery, examples of her work can always be found in the gallery's "studio."
Nolan Winkler, also a gallery member, had her first exhibit in the gallery in a three-artists' exhibit in January 2013. Her work has been shown in the gallery's "studio" and several group exhibits since.
Winkler has earned numerous fellowships and honors. Her work resides in national and international collections.
Both Wilkey and Winkler will be exhibiting in the gallery's second, Australia/New Mexico Wide Bay High Desert exchange exhibit in the fall of 2015. Check our website periodically as preparations for this exhibit develop.
Beyond the Veil and Home Base + continue through Saturday, August 30 with an Artists' Closing Reception from 4 to 6PM
Unsettled Gallery and Studio; July 2014
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.
