David Vega Chavez and Ralph Roybal

Deming native, David Vega Chavez, and Ralph Roybal of Santa Fe, will be the two featured artists for the Deming Art Center February 2017 show. Chavez, who was born in Deming, began drawing and painting in high school but eventually moved in another direction spending much of his early life involved in choreography, directing and dancing in the motion picture industry, television and the Las Vegas nightclub scene. In the early 90’s upon returning to New Mexico, he began painting seriously again and has never looked back. His favorite mediums are Watercolor, Acrylic and Egg Tempura and he enjoys painting the magic of the New Mexican light from sultry summer days to the cold, barren landscapes of northern New Mexico winters.  David Vega Chavez currently resides in Albuquerque.

Ralph Roybal began his career in bronze sculpting as an apprentice in some of the leading bronze foundries of the southwest. It was at Santa Fe Bronze under the famous sculptor Ernest Berke that Roybal realized his potential in bronze work. Much of his subject matter is based on 19th century North American tribes and tribal leaders with such notables like Geronimo, Black Hawk and Sitting Bull to name a few. He has won many first place awards in various Fine Art exhibitions and shows and can be found in the Permanent Collection of the Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, OK.

The show will run from Sunday, January 29 – February 24, with an artist reception on Sunday, January 29, 2017 from 1-3PM. The center is located at 100 S. Gold St., Deming, NM and is open Mon-Sat, 10AM - 4PM. Please see our Facebook pageor call 575-546-3663 for more information.

Sports - Billy Armendariz and Joanie Wolter

The September show entitled, “Sports”, will feature local photographer Billy Armendariz, and Joanie Wolter, a sculptor from Arizona. Sports photography and whimsical sports figures will be on display.

Billy Armendariz acquired a passion for sports as a young man growing up in the Los Angeles area. After becoming the Sports editor for the Headlight he became immersed in the pursuit of that “perfect” sports photo. He has won 29 NMPA (New Mexico Press Association awards. The highlight of his career came in 2012 when the Deming Headlight won 12 awards – 9 of those were his. He has been the editor of the Deming Headlight since 2004.

Joanie Wolter was born and raised in Southern California. After a move to Sedona she found a new passion – sculpting. The pieces she creates are who she is – a little goofy and fun loving. Most of her “senior series” pieces are modeled after her – full figured, middle aged women ready to live life to its fullest. She has won many awards for her work -most recently for her piece called “The Crush”. She also teaches classes in Sedona, and has taught classes at the Deming Art Center this past year. Her blend of humor, creativity, and imagination, along with mixed media, create pieces she truly hopes you will enjoy. See her work at www.cuveeart.com.

Linda Anderson and Dick Costa

May 2016 at the Deming Art Center will feature a Two Person Show with realist painter Linda Anderson and wood artist Dick Costa. 

Linda has always loved all things western, especially horses, and her lack of formal training did not stop her from learning to draw them.  Moving to Aspen in 1973 really helped develop her interest in wildlife art. She found that she enjoyed painting animals she had seen for herself and sold many of her paintings and won the nationally juried Glenwood Springs fine art festival- a highlight of her career. She has also shown and won awards locally for her paintings. She prefers water colors and acrylics for her realist style works. Since moving to Deming, Linda has begun painting horses again and is inspired by the area's western heritage, vast openness and beautiful sunrises and sunsets.

Dick Costa’s love of woodworking began when he was a young man watching his father carve 3D fish and whales. Soon he was learning to carve and a lifelong respect of woods and woodworking was born.  After retiring from a career as a Construction Engineer, Dick and his wife, Nancy, began traveling and ended up moving to Deming from Massachusetts. His son (to whom he attributes his more recent return to woodworking) asked why he did not get back into woodworking, so after setting up a complete shop in his garage, Dick is turning out some beautiful pieces of wood in the form of pens, bowls, vases and sculptures which are more creative and challenging. Dick uses techniques in his work that he has learned from people all over the world, as well as unique woods that are only found outside the US. 

The show will run from May 3-27, with an artist reception on Sunday, May 15, from 1-3PM.  Bob Rockwell, a local Deming author, will also be on hand to promote his new book, “Riding With Villa”. Gallery hours are 10AM-4PM Tuesday-Saturday with extended hours on Thursday evenings till 6:30PM. For more information call 575-546-3663 or visit us on Facebook.

Capturing the West; A Two Person Show

“Capturing the West; A Two Person Show,” is the title of the April 2016 Deming Arts Center exhibit featuring Holli Strand and Jack Walker. Holli Strand, an award winning artist, born and raised in southwest New Mexico and now living in the Tucson area depicts the beauty of New Mexico and Arizona through her paintings. Her work reflects the influence of the southwest and allows her to combine realism with a touch of her own style. She also does commission work for people from all over the world, which vary in subject and style.

 Jack Walker, a sculptor, has forged his talent on the anvil of experience. His earliest influences were ranchers and horsemen and his art is a glimpse into of the daily life of the American Cowboy. The years spent, working with cowboys, horses and cattle, bring depth and dimension to each piece he creates and Jack is well known for his detailed and accurate western bronzes. Jack has entered and won awards at some of the most prestigious fine art shows and has been featured in national publications, including Southwest Art, Horses In Art, The Judges Choice and Western Horseman magazines.

The Gallery hours are Tues- Sat, 10AM-4PM, as well as extended hours on Thursday to 6:30PM. There will be an artist reception on Sunday, April 3, 2016 from 1-3PM. The show will run from April 2- April 29. For more information visit us on facebook or call 575-546-3663.
