COR­REC­TION

In a story ti­tled “Of stone and leather, paint and clay” in the Thurs­day (March 8) edi­tion of Tempo, Kath­leen Michaels of Mil­li­cent Rogers Mu­seum was misiden­ti­fied. Michaels was co-cu­ra­tor of the sixth an­nual Taos Pue­blo Artists Win­ter Show­case Fri­day through Sun­day (March 9-11). A cor­rected ver­sion of the story is on­line at taos­news.com.

TAOS SCULP­TOR HAS SANTA FE SHOW

The works of Taos sculp­tor Hank Saxe are be­ing shown at the Peters Projects gallery in Santa Fe in an ex­hibit ti­tled “un­Nat­u­ral Land­scapes” from Fri­day (March 23) through May 25.

The artist will at­tend the open­ing re­cep­tion Fri­day from 5-7 p.m. and will give a talk on his work Satur­day (March 24) at 2 p.m. at the gallery lo­cated at 1011 Paseo de Per­alta in Santa Fe.

Born in Chicago, Illi­nois, Saxe has been a res­i­dent of Taos since the early 1970s. Saxe has worked in in­dus­trial and com­mer­cial ce­ramic pro­duc­tion and has al­ways re­mained con­nected to the soul of his en­vi­ron­ment, New Mex­ico, with an ap­pre­ci­a­tion of nat­u­ral ge­o­logic for­ma­tions and the North­ern New Mex­ico desert land­scape. This com­bi­na­tion of his tech­ni­cal knowl­edge and love of his en­vi­ron­ment are the un­der­ly­ing theme to this artist’s work. Saxe’s small-scale sculp­tures re­call rock-like for­ma­tions, but with an al­most other-worldly qual­ity, likely stem­ming from his idio­syn­cratic blends of nat­u­ral clays and syn­the­sized sub­stances seem­ingly not of this earth. Al­ways in­ves­ti­gat­ing new tech­nolo­gies in a land­scape of the South­west, this body of work brings to­gether many years of ex­pe­ri­ences, ob­ser­va­tions and in­ves­ti­ga­tions.

Hank Saxe has had nu­mer­ous solo ex­hi­bi­tions through­out the South­west. Among many mu­seum col­lec­tions his work is in the An­der­son Foun­da­tion for the Arts in Walla Walla, Wash­ing­ton, and the Har­wood Mu­seum of Taos, NM. He has also re­ceived Art in Pub­lic Places com­mis­sions in Tucson, Ari­zona, Ok­la­homa City, Ok­la­homa, and Las Ve­gas, Ne­vada, among oth­ers. Call (505) 954-5748 for more in­for­ma­tion.

If I were re­cep­tive enough, per­haps I would see it in ev­ery­thing. But I’m not, so pho­tog­ra­phy is one of the tools I use to help me con­cen­trate, to help me see deeply, to block out all that is ex­tra­ne­ous and see that which is es­sen­tial.’ Words close to my heart from pho­tog­ra­pher De­witt Jones,” Smith says in a press re­lease.
