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

posted Jun 12, 2013, 8:32 AM by Kadoya Gallery   [ updated Jun 12, 2013, 8:33 AM ]

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.

PUBLICATION:
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. 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 Summer 2013. 

WEBSITE:
Accompanying Open Spaces - Forgotten Places is a special website section featuring a selection of images that appear in the exhibition. 

PODCAST:
An audio program accompanying the Open Spaces - Forgotten Places exhibition features a conversation with Lynn Stenzel discussing her work. It will be available free of charge as a podcast on iTunes (Kadoya Gallery) after June 10, 2013.

Local Family to Honor Father’s Life with Documentary Film

Local Family to Honor Father’s Life with Documentary Film

The story of Herbert Pugh, “Kilroy and the Boy Soldier” will be unveiled at a Documentary Launch Party


PUEBLO, CO (March 7, 2013) - During World War II, 1.2 million African-Americans served in America’s Armed Forces with 125,000 serving oversees. Among those who served was Herbert Pugh, Jr., a 14 year old boy from Mansfield, Louisiana.

Young Herbert would embark on a journey that would take him from the fields of Mansfield where he played war games with friends, to the front lines of the real war in Europe.

Finally, he would return home to America, establishing himself as a resident of Pueblo, Colorado for over 50 years, while raising his family. During this time, the boy soldier was witness to the social war of mid-20th Century America, and faced a personal battle with the horrors of what he witnessed in battle.


The Pugh Family is now sharing this story with the world, in a new documentary about their father titled, “Kilroy and the Boy Soldier”. The effort to create the documentary is led by his son Kennedy Pugh, nationally recognized actor in theater and film.

In addition to telling the true story and intriguing adventure of a true boy soldier and hero, it gives a poignant look at the long term effects of what we now know today as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and the effect it continues to have on these WWII warriors and their families nearly 70 years later.


The documentary will be unveiled at a kickoff event open to the public, on Saturday, March 23, 2013. The event will be held at the Kadoya Gallery located at 119 Central Plaza in downtown Pueblo. A short program will begin promptly at 3:00 p.m., featuring local dignitaries and remarks from the family. Clips from the documentary will be shown and other memorabilia will be on display.


The Gallery will remain open until 8:00 p.m., showing the documentary every 30 minutes.

KADOYA GALLERY PRESENTS EXHIBITION SHOWCASING BRISTOL MAC DONALD’S PHOTOGRAPHY DOCUMENTING THE SPIRIT OF THE AMERICAN WILD HORSE

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. Advance reservations for the Catalog will begin in late Spring 2013.

WEBSITE:
Accompanying Unbridled Souls: Portrait of the American Wild Horse is a special website section, featuring a selection of images that appear in the exhibition. Kadoya Gallery has also included in this special section information about how you can help the American wild horse with special resources and web links.
