New Paintings by Doug West
September 4 - 21, 2009
Artist Reception: Friday, September 4, 5 - 7:30pm
For nearly 30 years Doug West has been capturing the complexities, vibrancy and structure of the southwest landscape—first as a master maker of prints and now deftly working with oils. His ardent depictions of New Mexico and the American West on canvas convey an altered sense of depth and richness. Blue Rain Gallery is pleased to be representing the artwork of Doug West.
It is nice to know that in a challenged economy people still recognize the value of collecting fine works of art, particularly paintings by regionalist, Jim Vogel. Vogel uses color and non-square canvases to tell stories of people living in rural northern New Mexico. His generous and warm portrayals often impart a sense of humanity and articulate a lifestyle that is often overlooked in today’s fast-paced, computer-aged world. Although a great deal of the work sold in the last two weeks, there are still a few significant pieces remaining that could be perfect for your collection.

This exhibition, which contains works borrowed from major museums and private collections across the United States, illustrates Singletary’s artistic evolution over the past two decades and culminates in a dynamic new body of work created during his 2008 Visiting Artist Residency at the Museum of Glass.
