NMC salutes Artist Registry member Judy Nelson-Moore, a self-described rebel and “outside artist”, whom we know both as a distinguished artist and as a long-time NMC volunteer. Judy has worked with clay for four decades, with numerous juried exhibitions, gallery showings and awards to her credit.

We thank Judy for her invaluable work behind the scenes keeping our database working, managing outgoing email blasts and being a charming and incredibly patient go-to person when things computer go wrong. She is a gem.

Of her work, Judy says, “ My life journey is like my work in clay...I enter into the journey. I push the clay to the edge to try new experiences. The result is about what I encounter along the way and how it feels to change.
What better medium than clay to explore the process of change? Clay is the very substance produced by the earth's change processes.
I ask the clay what it wants to do. Entering into the change process, not trying to control it, not letting it control me, but interacting, observing, appreciating, nudging here, and getting pushed back there. I tell my fingers to follow the clay on its travels. When I turn around and look at the work, I see a mirror of my own inner journey. When I am working with the clay, it feels like the clay is engaging me in a dialogue about where it wants to go.
Having worked in clay for 40 years, I consider myself an outsider artist. I do not follow established paths, methods, or styles. I have always thought of myself as a rebel, in the artist arena, in business, and in other areas of life.”
Be sure to visit the NMC website (link in the bio) to explore Judy’s work and that of some 75 other marvelous New Mexico women artists. Our Artist Registry exists to help New Mexico women artists share their work with galleries, collectors, the general public and other artists.

Marietta Patricia Leis: Sense Memories
You won’t want to miss this artist-led private tour for NMC members and non-members alike. “Sense Memories” is a new solo exhibition of the multi-disciplinary works of NMC member Marietta Patricia Leis in the just-reopened galleries of The Center for Contemporary Arts Santa Fe (CCA).
Date: Monday, February 14, 2022 (Valentine's Day!)
Time: 4:00 - 6:00 pm - Private, curated tour provided by Marietta Leis and CCA Executive Director Danyelle Means.
Where: Muñoz Waxman Gallery at CCA, 1050 Old Pecos Trail, Santa Fe
Ticket cost: $20 for Members of NM-WIA; $25 for non-members. Registration is required via our website (see bio for link).
Covid: Proof of vaccination is required. Masks required indoors.
Curatorial Notes: Ms. Leis is an Albuquerque-based visual artist and poet. Her reductive, expressive visual practice is shaped out of experiments in a variety of material processes and takes inspiration from the forms of nature, sense of place, and the internal landscape. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally including at the Mark Rothko Art Center in Latvia, the Museo Italo Americano in San Francisco, and the Harwood Museum of Art in Taos.
“Sense Memories” are memories summoned by one or more of the sight, smell, and hearing senses. Curated by Laura Carpenter, the sculptural works exhibited at CCA are situated in a vortex of light, color, minimalism, and expression that evoke ephemeral, atmospheric qualities inspired by the artist’s travels. The subtleties in materiality encourage the viewer to examine the artworks closely and to enter a meditative, contemplative space, allowing for access to the vibratory and resonant properties of the Earth, which are frequently experienced as sense memories.
The exhibition features more than two dozen works, including “The Silent Road,” a large-scale sculptural painting created for an exhibition in the Palazzo Mora under the auspices of the European Cultural Centre and the GAA Foundation on the occasion of the 2019 Venice Biennale.

SITE Santa Fe, 1606 Paseo de Peralta, Santa Fe

BACKGROUND:

SITE Santa Fe is presenting Helen Pashgian: Presences, an exhibition celebrating Pashgian’s contributions to the Light and Space movement and her technical prowess as an innovator in her medium of industrial plastics.
Born in 1934 in Pasadena, California, Pashgian is a pre-eminent member of the 1960s Light and Space movement in Southern California. Over the course of her career, Pashgian has produced a significant series of sculptures composed of vibrantly colored columns, discs, and spheres that often feature an isolated element appearing suspended, embedded, or encased within.
This first-of-its-kind exhibition in New Mexico surveys this trailblazing artist’s five-decade career. Helen Pashgian: Presences shows the breadth and depth of her work and takes viewers on a journey through poetic investigations of light and space.

Why the Word “Forgotten” Isn’t Helping Women Artists This word expresses a passivity that obscures the reality of these women’s stories. I prefer the more accurate “erased.”
