INTIMATE PORTRAITS BY TIM ANDERSONWHERE: Ghostwolf! 206-1/2 San Felipe ST NW STE 3
WHEN: June 4, 2021 (5-8pm)
Tim Anderson has been a Fine-Art photographer more than 50-years. He favors black-and-white street photography, compelling landscapes, surreal composite images and fine art nudes. He looks for the unique in a setting; something that might force him to “take a step back in order to see the image more clearly”.
Working in the same manner in the studio as well as on location, surprise is the most invigorating element of his creative process. No model or location is the same and he feels it is up to him to find that “moment,” that epiphany which captures an image that is both timeless and inspiring.
Tim publishes Shadow & Light Magazine, a bi-monthly, PDF, 100-page online photography magazine, which is also available in a print edition. He is the former publisher/managing editor of CameraArts magazine, and also publishes, “The Journal,” bi-weekly photography-related e-newsletter that now goes out to more than 5,000 world-wide subscribers. Besides photography, he is a writer, and published “Frame of Mind”, a poetry book, a few years ago.
Ghostwolf is delighted to welcome two new artists to the gallery! You can come see the incredible work of multimedia artist Barbara Burzillo and jeweler Andi Cavanaugh daily, starting this afternoon! We will tell you more about these incredible talents next month when we feature them as our artists of the month. For the time being, here are some images of their work – you definitely need to see it in person!

When we did the call for newsletter items this month, Laura Balombini had this interesting story to share…
“SOLD at Ghostwolf Memorial Day weekend…
I set this drawing/collage on a small easel by the door. As a couple was about to leave, the husband turned and asked: “Who did this piece?” I responded “I did… he’s a patriot”. He traveled to DC that day… visited the Korean War Memorial in honor of this dad… sized up the crowd at the capitol, and made the decision to head home. SOLD, he said.”

VOTE EARLY, VOTE OFTEN! ABQ THE MAG “BEST OF CITY”Okay, so you can only vote once, but do us a solid and tell the whole family! We made the top 5 list last year thanks to all of you, and we aim to do it again! Thanks in advance for taking the time to help us gain such valuable visibility! It really is a great way to help give us a leg up, and we appreciate it more than you know.
After thinking long and hard about our timing of this exhibit within the context of what has been a pretty weird year, we decided to move it out to August and alter the theme ever-so-slightly. We suspect we will have A LOT to celebrate and look forward to a great end-of-summer party!
The new timeline is:
July 9th- Deadline to return completed application
July 16th- Selection notifications e-mailed
August 2nd & 3rd- Work due at Ghostwolf Gallery 11-5pm
August 6th-29th – Exhibition dates
August 6th- Opening reception First Friday ARTScrawl
August 30th & 32st- Pick up work 11-5pm (Please plan to pick up on these dates!)
Ghostwolf invites local artists to submit their work for a juried exhibition celebrating well, everything! “Superfunkadelic” is conceptualized as a visual dance party! In normal years, we plan on having the show coincide with Pride month, but this year, we’re going to make it an end-of-summer celebration!
We’re looking for art that is joyful, fun, upbeat, and generally Super Funkadelic!
