Michael Carroll interviewed on KTRC for Contemporary Terrain

Michael gave a great interview last week to the very talented
Kathryn Davis.  Kathryn is the host of Art Beat, a long-running
fine arts radio program that covers the Santa Fe scene in-depth.  
Michael and Kathryn dug into the guts of port-lanscape, and
Western painting, Turner Carroll's interest in the authenticity of 
place, digital terrain, and the changing nature of places over time, 
such as how a spot in Belgium cn be the scene of a battle and later 
the site of a Google server farm.  The interview is about 20 minutes,
and is available here.

Inez Storer at the Philadelphia Academy of the Fine Arts

Over thirty years ago, Linda Lee Alter decided to collect art by women, 
building an extraordinarily diverse and powerful collection that includes 
some of the most influential female artists of the past 50 years.  In
celebration of these outstanding artists and their accomplishments, Alter recently gave her collection of close to 500 works to PAFA, allowing the public to see these remarkable works for the first time. Visit PAFA this fall and explore over 160 objects and their creators from the Linda Lee Alter Collection of Art by Women. By virtue of being in the collection of Linda Lee Alter, Inez will be presented in the exhibition The Female Gaze: Women Artists Making their World, on view November 17, 2012 - April 7, 2013.

Georges Mazilu in Santa Fe for his Solo Exhibition

We had a great exhibition for Georges Mazilu here in the gallery.
The show was made all the better by Georges travelling from 
France to Santa Fe to see old friends, and meet new collectors.  
And though we have shown Georges' work for nearly twenty years, 
there is always something we learn or a new bit we take away after
an in-person visit from Georges.  Jusqu'à ce que la prochaine fois!

Greg Murr interview in New American Paintings Blog

There is a great interview with Greg Murr in the New American
Paintings Blog, on the back of his being included in the recent
NAP issue #101.  Greg goes in depth and wanders around his
particular vocabulary explaining what it is that he's up to.  An
illustrative quote that we really liked is Greg is "...not interested 
in who we are as much as how and what we are..."  In the
context of Greg's recent political work, this is a great to key
to decoding his enigmatic constructions.

Fabulous Wolf Kahn resale 

Here at the gallery we just acquired a fabulous Wolf Kahn 
for resale.  This work, "In Isolation," is coming out of a private 
collection for the first time since it was purchased in 1991.
He is one of the best known student of Hans Hofmann, and
is regarded as America's finest landscape painter.  His work
appears as a synthesis of abstract and representational painting
over which is cast a shadow of Mark Rothko.  Wolf's work is
represented in The Metropolitam Museum of Art, the Whitney 
Museum of American Art, Smithsonian American Art Museum, 
and the Los Angeles County Museum of art, among others.  
Please contact us at info@turnercarrollgallery.com if you are 
interested in this painting.  We are more than happy to assist.

Heroes exhibition and Construct reviews

We've gotten some very good write ups lately.  Kate Petley and Rusty Scruby's
current exhibition Construct was written up by Leanne Goebel in Colorado Creates.
Also, we eceived a great review of the Hung Liu, Deborah Oropallo and Squeak 
Carnwath show Heroes in Art Ltd.  It's a great issue of a great magazine, and has 
lots of coverage of Santa Fe and Albuquerque in the July/August issue.

A copy of the Art Ltd. review may be downloaded here.

Construct: Rusty Scruby and Kate Petley on the front cover 
of the 15 June 2012 Santa Fe New Mexican: Pasatiempo

We open a fabulous show tonight, Construct.  Featuring Kate
Petley and Rusty Scruby, this exhibition examines two dynamic 
and unique artists working with complex and immersive two- 
and three-dimensional visual planes.  Both artists rearrange 
the obvious to create intra-artwork relationships.  In a way 
their artwork collaborates with itself through the practice of 
layering. To stand infront of Kate’s and Rusty’s work is like looking through a bug’s eye and simultaneously seeing forever.

Shawn Smith in Wired Magazine

Greg Murr and Shawn Smith now at Turner Carroll Gallery

We are very pleased to say that we are representing two new artists,
Greg Murr and Shawn Smith.  Greg is an artist we know well, having 
shown his work in the 1990s before he moved to Germany.  His work 
is in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art and the 
Progressive Collection, among others.  Shawn Smith came to us via
collectors in Dallas.  His work is sculptural with a with an aesthetic 
built on the digital idea of a pixel but rendered in wood.  His most 
recent work is focused on how we experience nature through technology.

For Murr, the arc of nature runs deep within his practice.  A fascination 
with the way the observable world exists outside our everyday awareness
guides his work.  Since 2008, Murr's work has featured dogs with their
noses to the ground, relying upon instincts to guide them, loose among 
a world of tangled pearls or fashion’s latest high-heels.

Hung Liu at the Belvedere Museum in Vienna

We just returned from a fabulous visit to Vienna.  Visits to the MUMOK,
Kunsthistoriches Museum, Akademie der Bildenden Künste, the Leopold 
Museum and the Upper Belvedere were capped by the opening for the 
exhibition GOLD.  This comprehensive examination of the use of gold 
in artwork from Tiepolo to contemporary time featured a work by Hung Liu.
Both the preview and the opening were packed with patrons filling the
rooms of the former palace; rooms that were by themselves awash in gold.
The exhibition runs through June 2012.
20 March 2012

Deborah Oropallo in D Magazine

Turner Carroll Gallery friend and uber-designer, Carson See, is written 
about in the January 2012 D Magazine along with the work of Deborah 
Oropallo.  Carson's new line of furniture 1818, is featured at the David 
Sutherland Showroom in Dallas.  Perfectly paired with the work of Deborah, 
the conjunction of male and female sensibilities in Carson's 1818 line works 
brilliantly.  A copy of the article may be downloaded here.

Hung Liu at the International Conference on Chinese Women 
and Visual Representation

In a first of its kind conference in Shanghai in December, Hung Liu 
not only designed the poster, but was a speaker.  The conference itself
focused on work by women in many fields, and on feminist art.  It was 
also the first time gay and lesbian groups were invited to the conference.  
Hung reports that the women artists, filmmakers, academics and others 
she met were incredible, making breathtaking work.  In Hung's words, 
"There is hope!"  All the best in 2012!

Wanxin Zhang article in Ceramics: Art and Perception

Julie Beal writes a great and interesting review of Wanxin's work in the 
context of his solo Ten-Year Survey at the Bellevue Arts Museum.
Julie digs deep in Wanxin's Chinese-American-ness, connecting work
by great American sculptors like Robert Arneson with the Qin terra-
cotta warriors.  Eloquent discourse on  the contrapuntal forces in 
Wanxin's work--individual figures in the context of a collective--
make this article a great read.  Kudos!  A link to the article is here.

greatest concentration from Texas and the coasts.  We were the only
Santa Fe gallery, and were able to serve our Houston and new collectors
with great sales and service at the fair.  We received a great write-up
in Ellen Berkovitch's great publication, Adobe Airstream.  The link to

Brilliant New Article on Hung Liu in Smithsonian American Art Magazine

In an 27-page article right after a piece on Donald Judd, Smithsonian American 
Art Museum Senior Curator Joann Moser does a superb job delivering us all 
sorts of fascinating stories during a conversation with Hung Liu.  The Smithsonian
will host a touring retrospective of Hung Liu's work that originates at the Oakland
Museum of California in 2013.  In preparation for this major exhibition, Turner 
Carroll will host a large show of Hung's newest Chinese Ballet series works, along

Drew Tal enters the collection of the New Britain Museum of American Art

Kudos to Drew Tal!  His "Porcelain Promises" was acquired for the museum's 
permanent photography collection. The NBM is one of the nation’s most dynamic 
art museums which exhibits its permanent collection and special exhibitions on 
widely diverse subjects in ways that combine the highest aesthetic standards 
with engaging and intellectually accessible presentations. Tal's "Porcelain Promises" 
is inspired by the tradition of ancestral paintings, a Chinese commemorative 
tradition in which wealthy families depict their ancestors in fine paintings. This 
particular pair of portraits symbolizes the fragility of relationships between lovers, 
generations, cultures and nations.  Drew Tal's work is included in private collections 
around the world as well as in the permanent collection of the Norton Museum in 
West Palm Beach, Florida.

Turner Carroll Gallery at Art Miami 2010

Best fair ever!  Miami and visitors really turned out for the fairs this year.
Art Miami was exceptionally strong, with truly interesting and compelling work
from primarily mid-career and blue chip artists.  Sculpture by Gino Miles was 
the big story in our booth, with six major pieces finding homes in New York, 
Massachusetts, California, Washington state, and Venezuela.  We also placed 
major pieces by Hung Liu and Ashley Collins.  Works by Rex Ray and Conrad 
Kern also found homes.

permanently in the museum), Caspar David Friedrich, Giandomenico Tiepolo, 
William Blake, Joseph Beuys, Lucio Fontana, Yves Klein, Georg Baselitz,

Don and Era Farnsworth and Squeak Carnwath at the Nobel Museum in Stockholm

Don and Era and Squeak all have work in an incredible exhibition called The Missing Peace

is a multi-media art exhibition that brings together 88 respected artists representing 30 
countries. With the full life of the Dalai Lama as inspiration, the intention for this project 
is to shift the world's attention towards peace. http://gallery.tmpp.org/gallery/en/index.jsp

Igor Melnikov at Turner Carroll Gallery

We are very pleased to open an exhibition of new work 
by Igor Melnikov.  His work grafts the roots of the known 
(paintings of fields, children, the work of Andrew Wyeth) 
to the flowers and fruit of sensitivity and the unkown.
Sometimes words work to describe painting, but in this 
case you have to see the work for yourself to understand.
The exhibition runs through 5 October 2009.

Hung Liu at Turner Carroll Gallery
Don't miss this solo exhibition by one of the great American 
contemporary artists.  High concept, but also very handsome, 
these works form a dialogue about power, the photographic 
perspective, the male gaze, and a history simultaneously in 
the past yet coming back around.  The exhibition continues 
through 8 September 2009.

Deborah Oropallo at Turner Carroll Gallery
We are really proud of Deborah's new solo show here at the gallery 
Wild, Wild, West Show.  She got a great review by Ellen Berkovitch 
in adobeairstream.com, who asked how an image can double or 
triple when the human figure has been removed.  After Deborah's 
talk at the Santa Fe Art Institute, we all went over to the Rodeo 
de Santa Fe for an evening of impeccable timing, and thrills and 
spills.  The exhibition continues through 12 July 2009.

Hung Liu in Achitectural Digest

A piece by Hung Liu was included in the coverage 
of a beautiful home in Chicago in the February 2009 
American Edition of Architectural Digest.  It's one 
thing to see artwork in a gallery, and quite another 
in its best context--one's home.

Scherer & Ouporov at Lee Wagener Gallery at
Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport
Turner Carroll Gallery artists Suzanne Scherer and Pavel Ouporov 
have placed an original video work as a permanent installation in 
the Lee Wagener Gallery at Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International 
Airport.  The piece, Tree-Rain, is a part of series of recent works 
based on the massive Birch State Park banyan tree in Ft. Lauderdale.  
"As a bilingual (American and Russian) couple, we often search for 
connections and common roots of out two diverse languages," 
say the artists.  Tree-Rain was inspired by the Russian Symbolist 
poet, Andrei Bely's 1922 poem Glossolalia.  Through a study of 
linguistics and a theory of the universe's origins based on sound, 
the work is structured on the repetition of roots, words, and 
sounds in many different languages.  Latin and Cyrillic letters 
rain down, as moving text, forming words in English: mama, 
home, womb; in Russian: dom (home); in Hebrew: yom (day).

Hung Liu review in ARTnews Magazine

Hung Liu's brilliant solo exhibition with us this summer 
is reviewed in the December 2008 ARTnews.  The reviewer
lauded the exhibition thusly "In more complex paintings,
Liu practices a sort of magic realism.  The artist seems to 
be imagining personal histories, excavating forgotten tales 
so as to present narratives from different eras in a single work."
We couldn't have said it better ourselves.
