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. Planning has already begun!

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.

Raul Dorn

In his artist's statement, Raul Dorn relates an observation about abstract expressionism work made by the art critic, Harold Rosenberg. ". . . at a certain moment," Rosenberg observed, "the canvas began to appear as an arena in which to act, rather than a space in which to 'express' an object, actual or imagined. What was to go on the canvas was not a picture, but an event."

Of the work that comprises the exhibit am/pm (on canvas, on paper - oil, acrylic, collage - gestural reference to the human figure, botanical subjects, landscapes, other), in Dorn's combinations of materials, colors and techniques - he seeks to embed the real event for the experience and pleasure of the viewer.

So, please join us for the artist's reception and visit during the run of the exhibit. Or take advantage of another opportunity to discuss the work with the artist when Dorn presents a Performance Reading on Saturday, September 20 from 6 to 7 PM. The exhibit am/pm continues through Saturday, September 27. Check the gallery's web site for information about this and other forthcoming events.

Column heading for a narrative about the gallery

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.
