 deborah geary  Studio Location #8  I have been collage-painting since a bicycle accident and a broken pelvis required my full attention in bed. I was given a water color set from a dear friend. That was 1991.  Never satisfied with my painting style, I began paper making post-pelvis.  When I looked at the brightness of my water color style, I was taken with "reproducing" them in 3-D collage, layer upon layer of hand-ripped color strips. I watercolored on my home-made paper, which is much thicker than water color paper. The resulting process has evolved over the years, but I remain a sloppy collage artist with paint, torn pieces, glue, varnish, and colored pieces from years past in the mix. I end up with as much glue, paint, and mod podge on me as my completed pieces.  I was born monocular, and I think that fact has given me the opportunity to build up my collages into thick, sometimes off the paper, sometimes a few inches built up and bent into cityscapes from our years in Manhattan, to ocean and sailing themes from our many years in San Diego. I have become desert-transfixed, so some of my newer art collages deal with the beauty and nature that surrounds me every day here in Carrizozo.  I am an avid bicyclist and ride the Highway 54 almost every day providing me the mountains that surround me, the open vistas and truly "Land of Enchantment" beauty.

 joan malkerson  Studio Location #2 / Lutz Building  The Stone Catcher Installation by Joan Malkerson When I was a small child I lived in the mountains at my Grandmother’s cabin. There my sisters and I played with stones. We collected the beautiful white and pink quartz to make stone drawings on the ground. With hammers used by archeologists we opened different stones to see what was inside....often mica or fool’s gold. We scratched the stones onto the granite rock to make different marks. All day long we would play in the summertime on the large rocks and name them; Steamboat, Chipmunk, and Waiting. These large tumbling forms were over 25 feet tall and we climbed and played all over them. Stones were part of my growing up.  As a young teenager I climbed the tallest peaks of the Rocky Mountains over 14,000 feet high. Long’s Peak in the Rocky Mountain National forest was the greatest challenge. Every time I climbed, a tiny stone would end up in my pocket. I collected little moments of time.  My academic studies took me into the the Philosophies of the world. Again, I found a strong association with my life with stones, specifically the Philosopher’s stone.  This life long love of stones continues in this installation which speaks to the power of stones as a metaphor. The stones collected by the Stone Catcher are symbols of pain, injustice, sorrow and grief. The black woman in the Alabama courtroom does not have a name, but her grand son was murdered by two young boys. She grieved and cried for the loss of her beloved grandson. Another woman sat by her side, they never talked, but she knew that woman understood and felt compassion for her sorrow. When the trial was over, the two boys were sentenced to life in prison. That moment is when the grandmother understood her mission. She empathized with the grief of the parents and family of those boys. So, she decided to sit in the courtroom with grieving families or friends of the victims and the perpetrators. She catches the pain of sorrow and injustice, she catches the stones. I hope more of us can understand, have compassion and empathize.  Be a stone catcher.

The Stone Catcher
Installation by Joan Malkerson
When I was a small child I lived in the mountains at my Grandmother’s cabin. There my sisters and I played with stones. We collected the beautiful white and pink quartz to make stone drawings on the ground. With hammers used by archeologists we opened different stones to see
what was inside....often mica or fool’s gold. We scratched the stones onto the granite rock to make different marks. All day long we would play in the summertime on the large rocks and name them; Steamboat, Chipmunk, and Waiting. These large tumbling forms were over 25 feet tall and we climbed and played all over them. Stones were part of my growing up.

As a young teenager I climbed the tallest peaks of the Rocky Mountains over 14,000 feet high. Long’s Peak in the Rocky Mountain National forest was the greatest challenge. Every time I climbed, a tiny stone would end up in my pocket. I collected little moments of time.

My academic studies took me into the the Philosophies of the world. Again, I found a strong association with my life with stones, specifically the Philosopher’s stone.

 doug stanton  Studio Location #9  Painting, Photography  "I generally start with a small set of fixed parameters; a square format, a surface (usually panel board) that has been primed or prepared in some way to except paint, and a palette of monochrome or polychrome acrylic paint.  Generally starting with a trowel loaded with selected colors, the first "pull" of the trowel across the painting surface produces and unpredictable set of marks which run across the square in the direction of the pull.  This first act of marking sets the painting in motion ...  Certainly, I am making conscious decisions about mark making but it's often in response to "chance" occurrences within the composition. In striving to create something that might be interesting or beautiful or mysterious or challenging, I work with what the picture plane shows me.  Speed is of the essence so I must work quickly and make the best of what is in front of me."

 suzanne donazetti  Studio Location # 6  “My vision is to communicate with color, through the refractive lens of weaving, brief moments of light in the natural environment.  I seek to create changing, complex pieces that will engage and provide a sense of meditation.”   You might see Suzanne’s artwork in such places as Bradley International Airport, Windsor Locks, CT; The Alaska Supreme Court, Anchorage, AK; The New Mexico Emergency Management Center, Santa Fe, NM; Time Inc. Conference Center, New York, NY; as well as hotels, hospitals and corporate spaces.  Her art is represented by Waxlander Gallery in Santa Fe, Gallery 408 in Carrizozo, and Tapestry Gallery in Madrid.  Once a year Suzanne creates small pieces (wall tiles, notecards, frames/mirrors) and one large piece for the Carrizozo Artists Studio Tour.  “I really enjoy opening my studio on Airport Road to wonderful artists – this year Ivy Heyman, Lisa Maue, and Denise Henry.  We provide refreshments and a relaxing, fun atmosphere for art.”

 marc cohen & julia danielle  Studio Location # 12 / Box Art Dreams  BoxArt Dreams is the reflection of Marc Cohen’s and Julia Danielle’s background in Theatre and Film. The result is a series of mixed-media artworks that feature their original photos, video, music and miniature figurines.  Marc was assistant to legendary theater Director Tom O’Horgan on the groundbreaking Broadway productions “Hair,” “Jesus Christ Superstar” and “Lenny.” Exposed to set design, lighting, costumes and outstanding performing talent, his ability for storytelling was born through his BoxArt—A term he coined in the 1980’s. First selling successfully on the streets of SoHo Manhattan, Marc was picked up by 5th Avenue stores, exhibited by Sotheby’s London and then commissioned for private works.  Julia is a SAG-AFTRA actress/singer/dancer. After leaving Alvin Ailey’s Dance Theater she danced and sang on Broadway. Sang with CBS Records as a studio artist and was then invited into film work. She performed with the likes of Director Francis Ford Coppola in “The Cotton Club Movie,” Spike Lee’s “School Daze,” Woody Allen’s “Celebrity.” She has made her transition to behind the camera as a Composer, Videographer, Director and Editor.  Native New Yorkers Marc and Julia settled in Carrizozo, New Mexico a decade ago. They transformed the town’s long shuttered hardware store into a live/work loft they call DreamSpace.

I paint from a very personal place ... most often with acrylics on large canvases or boards yet I enjoy creating using various mediums.  I am inspired by nature, science, mystery, internal experiences, human relationships and how they all relate and connect."

 lisa maue  Studio Location # 6  Lisa Maue hand sculpts and airbrushes glazes onto standard bisque tile that are then fired.  Subject matter includes local scenes, abandoned buildings and creatures that inhabit south-central New Mexico.  Working from photographs, Maue separates out each color and cuts an acetate template which can be used multiple times.  The end result is a tile that is a stylistic yet representative piece that is sturdy and water resistant.
