Roots Run Deeper

Photographic works by Kellie Cason O’Connor

August 16 — September 12, 2013

Artist Reception | Friday, August 16, 2013 | 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm


PUEBLO, COLORADO, August 6, 2013 — Kadoya Gallery presents the exhibition Roots Run Deeper by Pueblo artist Kellie Cason O’Connor. This exhibition showcases the artist’s powerful journey to capture her lost and decaying roots in the American Southwest. To accompany this exhibition, Kadoya Gallery is also pleased to feature the world premiere of her Polaroid 20x24 images in her series Ties that Bind. This collection includes five images taken with this rare large format camera.


In the Roots Run Deeper series, the artist explores the construction of our attachment to and dependence on place. She explores her connections with a land and a people to which she is tied through family history and genealogy. It is a coming to terms with the land, the people, and the connections she now has as an outside observer.


“The images reflect a search for a sense of place and belonging. As a child, I moved away from the land, returning only to visit family. I would go for drives down dusty, country roads with my grandfather. He would point out places and explain their relation to me through family history and genealogy. I longed for connection with faceless strangers inside these houses, the families behind store signs’ names, and long-since abandoned family farms.”

“The work is an intuitive one. I allow the camera, the places, the relics, and the land to draw me as I revisit the American Southeast, searching for my decaying roots and a lost connection that is, by birthright, mine.”


Kellie Cason O'Connor is a fine arts film photographer based in Pueblo, Colorado. Kellie attended Massachusetts College of Art and Design studying photography under photographers such as Laura McPhee, Nicholas Nixon, Frank Gohlke, and Abelardo Morell.

O’Connor’s current works consist of imagery that addresses the reclamation of nature and the relational aspects between humankind and nature. Her other works include works based in her Appalachian roots, documentary work of the Quiche Mayan culture based in Guatemala, and alternative photographic techniques. Kellie's works have appeared in Lenscratch, Fototazo, Update, and F-Stop Magazines.


The images are created primarily through the use of a 4x5 view camera and a medium format rangefinder. All images are created using film.


PUBLICATION:

Selected works from Roots Run Deeper will be featured in the first edition of the Kadoya Gallery Catalog which will be released in November 2013. Lavishly illustrated with more than 75 works (some never before published), the catalog highlights selected works from each exhibition at Kadoya Gallery during 2013.

KADOYA GALLERY PRESENTS EXHIBITION SHOWCASING KIM FAIELLA-FURRH’S ABSTRACT PAINTINGS AND MIXED MEDIA DRAWINGS

Abstract paintings and mixed media drawings using rich metallic oils and vibrant colors

Artist Reception | Friday, July 19, 2013 | 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm


PUEBLO, COLORADO, July 15, 2013 — Kadoya Gallery presents the exhibition 24K by Pueblo artist Kim Faiella-Furrh. This exhibition showcases the artist’s extensive career and features not only her signature large abstract masterworks, but also a selection of works representing many phases of her career. Her show will fill both the Upper and Lower Galleries of Kadoya Gallery.

Kim was born and raised in York, Pennsylvania though moved to the suburbs of New York City as a teenager. This mixture provided a dynamic foundation of an early appreciation of simple life and nature with street smarts and big city excitement. Her strong, positive personality and childlike curiosity of the world would follow her from New York to Europe, Asia, Africa, South America, Australia, and beyond, where she traveled, worked and made art the entire time. She now resides in Pueblo, Colorado and is the owner and founder of SAGE Art Academy, a unique art space that houses her working studio, an art school and the SAGE Gallery.

Kim received her undergraduate degree at Skidmore College and has studied at The Rhode Island School of Design and The Art Students League. Training at these top notch institutions gave her the experience of a solid education as well as an exposure to professors who were world class artists. She was taught by the best to work hard and push the limits of her work always.

Kim is a multi-medium visual artist who works with several mediums at once; she enjoys such mediums as charcoal, gouache, graphite and metal though Kim is primarily an abstract expressionist painter who loves to work in oils. Her work is sensual, bold and raw, filled with shapes rich in color and layered texture connected together by lines and areas of void which may seem unintentional but are all part of the master plan to a successful piece of art. A viewer’s eye can spend a long time in front of her artwork seeing new details and areas which are subtle and powerful at the same time. She often values the process of creating rather than the actual subject of her creations and at nearly 6 feet tall, to Kim, creating is a physical process as well as a creative process, pushing the limits of the mediums is everything.

Her work is often inspired by nature and many of her pieces are abstract landscapes though not all. She is inspired everyday by the colors she sees in the earth, the sky, aging textures in architecture, and emotions felt by the ever changing world in which she lives and has traveled though she is always brought back to the simple and beautiful colors , smells and landscapes of her Pennsylvania Dutch farm life of her youth.

KADOYA GALLERY PRESENTS EXHIBITION SHOWCASING LYNN STENZEL’S POWERFUL PAINTINGS OF THE SKY AND PLAINS

Open Spaces - Forgotten Places
Paintings of the Sky & Plains

June 14 — July 18, 2013
Artists’ Reception | Friday, June 14, 2013 | 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm

PUEBLO, COLORADO, June 6, 2013 — Kadoya Gallery presents the exhibition Open Spaces - Forgotten Places, Paintings of the Sky & Plains by Pueblo artist Lynn Stenzel. This exhibition showcases the artist’s extensive career and features not only her signature large canvas masterworks, but also a selection of works representing many phases of her career. Her show will fill both the Upper and Lower Galleries.

Growing up on the plains there was an empty, unrestricted vision of the horizon where the earth met the sky. One could not escape a sense of AWE of living on the land surrounded by vast space dominated by an immense ever-changing sky. Lynn’s respect for nature increased when storms rolled in, creating thunderous responses to crackling lightning. The energy released during storms was both frightening and thrilling.

“There are certain places on Earth where I experience increased energy and a sense of being ‘at home’ and ‘at one’ with the land. Luckily, I have lived in such places and have felt enriched by their stark beauty and kinship. The vastness of the land and sky of the plains of Kansas, Southern Colorado and New Mexico have greatly influenced my work.”

Lynn is drawn to the austerity of open landscapes, along with the structures resting on the earth. The imperfections, crookedness and cracks of colored plaster clinging to the adobe walls have compelled her to enter those spaces physically and artistically. Representing space and forms as a reflection of nature rather than an imitation, she hopes to have captured the simple, calm feeling of a sense of place.

Selected works from Open Spaces - Forgotten Places will be featured in the first edition of the Kadoya Gallery Catalog which will be released in November 2013.

KADOYA PRESENTS TWO EXHIBITIONS SHOWCASING NICKI HART’S DIGITAL PAINTINGS AND THE SIGNATURE SHOW OF THE SOUTHERN COLORADO WATERCOLOR SOCIETY

Signature Show (Lower Gallery)
Southern Colorado Watercolor Society

April 19 — May 16, 2013
Artists’ Reception | Friday, April 19, 2013 | 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm

PUEBLO, COLORADO, April 5, 2013—Kadoya Gallery presents the exhibitions Abstract Luminance and the Signature Show simultaneously in the Upper and Lower Galleries. This dual exhibition highlights the unique contrast between the new genre of digital fine art painting and the traditional brushwork of watercolor artists. 


Nicki Hart’s digital abstracts offer a sweet release from the corporate imagery she creates every day. Her artwork consists of a variety of digital techniques, but her current series combines digital abstracts created in Photoshop with photography. She first obtains an abstract photograph, with a focus on light, and then further manipulates the photo to create her final abstract piece. Her digital abstracts are free flowing with intense light, shapes and color that emerge from a black canvas. Hart has exhibited at the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art and her piece, Tech 2007, was featured on the cover of Advanced Photoshop Magazine’s 50th issue. This is Hart’s first solo exhibition featuring all 15 works from her Abstract Luminance series. She will also be releasing two new works specifically created for this show. 



The Signature Show features original works by those members of the Southern Colorado Watercolor Society (SCWS) who have been a member in good standing for at least three years and have been accepted into three qualifying shows. One of the three must be in our SCWS Aquarius National Show, one must be from another juried qualifying show listed under the active membership, and the third can be from either Aquarius National or an accepted (by SCWS) juried show. The purpose of the SCWS is to offer the watercolor artist a support group, encourage and nurture the novice artist, to provide programs for all to reach their full potential; to devise ways to bring fine art to the public, while maintaining high standards for the society; and to promote art in the community at large.


PUBLICATION:
Selected works from Abstract Luminance and the Signature Show will be featured in the first edition of the Kadoya Gallery Catalog which will be released in November 2013. Lavishly illustrated with more than 75 works (some never before published), the catalog highlights selected works from each exhibition at Kadoya Gallery during 2013. Advance reservations for the Catalog will begin in late Spring 2013.

KADOYA GALLERY PRESENTS EXHIBITION SHOWCASING ROBERT GAINES’ POWERFUL IMAGES OF BENT’S OLD FORT IN OTERO COUNTY, COLORADO

Bent’s Old Fort: A View into the Past
March 15 — April 18, 2013
Artist’s Reception | Friday, March 15, 2013 | 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm


PUEBLO, COLORADO, March 8, 2013—Kadoya Gallery presents the exhibition Bent’s Old Fort: A View into the Past, a journey that transports you from days gone by to the present through photography. Robert Gaines’ projects currently focus on places and buildings that reach into the past. His subjects range from historic sites to closed factories or retired prisons. Robert, a photographer of nearly 30 years, has always kept his work intensely private, until now.

While visiting Bent's Old Fort in Otero County, Colorado, Robert found the call of the history of not only the place, but the items in it. Of the images in this series, none are composed or use any artificial lighting, all are exactly as found. When one looks at these images, one is looking directly into the past.

In conjunction with the Bent’s Old Fort exhibition, Kadoya Gallery is also pleased to announce that Robert Gaines will share eight specially curated images from his new project focusing on Renz Prison which is located in Cole County, Missouri. After nearly three years of requesting permission to enter the inner compound, Robert was granted permission. The result of three visits to the prison over nearly a three year period is a series of hauntingly beautiful images that capture the spirit of the the pain and isolation of the buildings. These special photographic images will be showcased together in the lower gallery at Kadoya Gallery.

Robert Gaines has been a professional photographer for much of his life. Robert began as an assignment photographer in Phoenix, AZ. He shot anything and everything that the client might need. Difficult, challenging lighting and situations were the daily norm, creativity and perfection the standard. Now, semi-retired, Robert has the time to pursue purely his own goals and needs. The results are the images you will see at this exhibition at Kadoya Gallery.

"I look for the simple, the dramatic, the different in everyday life."

PUBLICATION:
Selected works from Bent’s Old Fort: A View into the Past will be featured in the first edition of the Kadoya Gallery Catalog which will be released in November 2013.

KADOYA GALLERY PRESENTS EXHIBITION SHOWCASING LISA BAILEY’S ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONIST ART AND THE POWER OF REPURPOSING

PUEBLO, COLORADO, February 11, 2013—Kadoya Gallery presents the exhibition AWAKENED: The Art of Repurposing through Feeling, Movement and Texture, a journey through creative color and reuse techniques. Lisa Bailey is a mixed media abstract expressionist artist who believes that creative play with color should be a daily part of everyone’s life. You can see her use of colors found in nature in many of her pieces combined with a twist of unexpected elements. Lisa loves using old wood window sashes, reclaimed wood, wood screens and wire as much as possible in her works, finding that almost anything old can find a new use in “green” artmaking. As a self taught artist Lisa blends years of life experience with self expression and through the use of reuse/repurposing techniques is able to bring new life to discarded and found objects. The wealth of materials often overlooked by people daily allows her to explore a variety of new and exciting multi-media art forms. Lisa hopes that through her art she can foster a focus on rethinking what we throw away. Usable and interesting items are thrown away every day and hauled to a landfill yet we still feel the need to go to stores to purchase new materials for art. We want to encourage everyone to take another look at these discards and reuse what is already in our communities.

Lisa has exhibited in juried art shows throughout Pueblo and Southern Colorado and placed First in Mixed Medium at the Beulah Fine Art Show in August 2010. You can see Lisa’s artwork at Park East Restaurant, Steel City Art Works, BTC Building and the Pueblo Jones Healy Office.

PUBLICATION:

Unbridled Souls: Portrait of the American Wild Horse
January 18—February 14, 2013
Artist’s Reception | Friday, January 18, 2013 | 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm


PUEBLO, COLORADO, January 10, 2013—Kadoya Gallery presents the exhibition Unbridled Souls: Portrait of the American Wild Horse, a journey through photography capturing the power, beauty and magnificence of America’s wild mustangs. 

Featuring the work of photojournalist/artist Bristol Mac Donald, the exhibition presents a stunning collection of fine art, black and white photography. Over 20 images poignantly tell the story of America’s last remaining mustangs. 

Considered to be an important and influential artist of our time, Mac Donald has dedicated the last eight years of her life documenting the spirit of the American wild horse. Her unique and captivating imagery has coveted multiple awards, international attention and highly successful gallery exhibits.

A passionate advocate for America’s wild horses, Mac Donald uses her art to create awareness of the struggle the American wild horse continues to face in this country, with the number of mustangs remaining in the wild, dropping to the lowest in history. 

"I am driven by passion and by a devotion to tell the story of the plight of the American wild horse. I have made it a priority in my life and my art to educate and enlighten the public and inspire change."

Once an American legend, a living symbol of freedom, the American wild horse is now in jeopardy of becoming extinct in a land it helped revolutionize. As a nation we have done little to extend either stewardship or respect for these noble animals. Instead we have herded them, broken them, abused them and slaughtered them. And now we are at risk of losing them forever. 

Bristol has traveled across the western United States observing and photographing wild horse bands in their natural habitat. Her "fine art" photography utilizes traditional photographic technique: black and white film and a single lens reflex camera. Each image is custom printed in the darkroom on fiber based, gelatin silver photographic paper. There is no digital manipulation. The photographs record what the artist saw through the lens of the camera.

A portion of Bristol's photographic sales is gifted to Return to Freedom - American Wild Horse Sanctuary, a non-profit wild horse sanctuary founded in 1997 by Neda DeMayo. The sanctuary is a safe haven for over 200 wild horses, located in Lompoc, California. Return to Freedom works with other national organizations and key lawmakers in an effort to find a solution that will protect the future of America’s wild horses. 

"It is my greatest desire that my art touch the human spirit and encourage Americans to speak out on behalf of wild horses across the nation. We need to be their voice!"

PUBLICATION:
Selected works from Unbridled Souls: Portrait of the American Wild Horse will be featured in the first edition of the Kadoya Gallery Catalog which will be released in November 2013. Lavishly illustrated with more than 75 works (some never before published), the catalog highlights selected works from each artist’s exhibition at Kadoya Gallery during 2013.
