Of­froad Pro­duc­tions ex­plores two South­west­ern cities with In­ter­stated: Phoenix/Santa Fe

In the ex­hibit In­ter­stated: Phoenix/Santa Fe, Of­froad Pro­duc­tions high­lights con­tem­po­rary artists work­ing in two South­west­ern cities. Co-cu­rated by Of­froad founder Michael Freed and John Reyes, di­rec­tor of the Bent­ley Gallery in Phoenix, In­ter­stated ex­plores “place” in artists’ works, whether that refers to where they are in terms of their artis­tic prac­tice, where they live, or where they cre­ate their art.

This is the first time Of­froad Pro­duc­tions has fo­cused on art out­side New Mexico. The show in­cludes mono­types by master printer John Armstrong, por­trai­ture by Colin Chillag, pop-cul­ture-in­flu­enced work in mixed media by Kristin Bauer, and other pieces by Phoenix-based artists. The Santa Fe con­tin­gent in­cludes artist and ed­u­ca­tor Joanne Lefrak, who cre­ates fig­u­ra­tive works in etched Plex­i­glas, sculp­tor and me­tal­worker Adam Rosen, and mul­ti­me­dia artist David For­lano. Freed, who hosts Of­froad’s guest-cu­rated ex­hi­bi­tions from his stu­dio in the Siler Road dis­trict, presents his own works in In­ter­stated.

The re­cep­tion is at 6 p.m. on Satur­day, July 18. The show runs through the week­end. Works by Santa Fe artists re­main on view by ap­point­ment through July 25. Of­froad Pro­duc­tions is lo­cated at 2891-B Trades West Road. Call 505-670-9276 for in­for­ma­tion or to ar­range a visit. — Michael Abatemarco
