February 2022

Hello friends!
We’re back! Tonight is First Friday ARTScrawl, and we are opening a new show entitled VIVID: A Preview. The call is also out for the annual “Women’s Work” show! Interested female artists have until February 13th to get their submissions in! And finally, Valentine’s day is right around the corner. Please think of us when looking for that perfect (unique!) gift!

Be well, live artfully, don’t forget to howl at the moon now and again…

-Amy & The Ghostwolf Gang

PS- New Mexico still has a mask mandate in effect for indoor spaces, so please bring one with you to all of the events on our list and respect other precautions our artists may be taking to keep you, other guests, and themselves safe and healthy. Thanks!

FIRST FRIDAY:
VIVID! A Preview
WHERE: Ghostwolf! 206-1/2 San Felipe ST NW STE 3
WHEN: February 4th, 2021 (5-8pm)

This one is a cool one, folks! Eight Burqueños were selected from many to represent the Albuquerque art scene in Attleboro, MA this coming spring. Join us tonight (and all month) for a preview of this amazing body of work that will soon be on its way across the country and see what makes these artists so special! Ghostwolf’s own Denise Weaver Ross and Amy M. Ditto made the cut! The other fantastic featured artists are (top left-to-right) David S.

A quick note regarding COVID-19 protocols…
As stated in our introductory statement this month, New Mexico currently has a mask mandate for indoor spaces. Kindly wear a mask in the gallery while visiting us. If you forget a mask and need one, never fear! Just ask one of our artists and we’ll provide one. Thank you!!

GABRIELA HENNER

 

Gabriela Henner will be exhibiting two new pieces of artwork, “The Appearance of the Blip” and “Monster Holiday Party,” alongside a previous series of works entitled “The Pet Series.”

The Appearance of the Blip:
The discovery of the Blip, a formerly unknown species of monsterkind, was recorded in this early painting by Cuerrnia Vidrimare. The painter first stumbled upon the small creature on one of her evening strolls along the coast of Asilah, Morocco. She credited the appearance of The Blip in her life to the beginning of a lengthy residency in the beautiful coastal town which would influence the content and colors of all of her later artistic creations.

Monster Holiday Party:
The past few winters have been longer and darker than previous times, but these monsters are ready to cast off the old year and ring in the new one with a warm celebration. Leave those snowy boots at the door, and with a hot buttered rum in your paws and mirthful cheer in your heart, you’ll be welcoming 2022 in style! (This work features several recurring characters from previous works. Do you recognize any of them?)

AMY M. DITTO
In preparation for the Attleboro Museum show, Amy has revised some old work and created some new. Depicted below: “The Prince” (v2.0, left) and “La Reina” (right). Both are being produced at 24″ x 30″ in a mid-gloss finish as a special limited edition series of 25 and will eventually be on view at the gallery!

ATTLEBORO FUNDRAISER
All of the artists selected to send work back east are honored and excited but shipping quantities of large artwork cross-country can get expensive. Denise Weaver Ross has put together a fundraiser to help defray the costs of transporting the work as a way to help the artists out. If you are so-inclined, you can support these wonderful folks by throwing a little into the pot at: https://www.gofundme.com/f/8-albuquerque-artistYour help is most appreciated, and Denise has arranged for their to be rewards for various amounts!
