JUNE WAYNE
The Tapestries: Forces of Nature and Beyond
February 15 - March 23, 2013
Tuesday - Saturday 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Opening Reception: Friday, February 22nd 5:00 - 7:00 PM
June Wayne

David Richard Gallery is pleased to present, The Tapestries: Forces of Nature and Beyond, a solo exhibition celebrating the glorious tapestries and life of the multi-media artist June Wayne. The gallery exclusively represents and will offer for sale for the first time in several decades the 16 hand-woven tapestries produced from 1970 through 1974 in France by the legendary artist June Wayne. The tapestries were based upon lithographs produced by Wayne, featuring her contemporary images in a historic medium and artistic practice. Centered around three technology-based themes of interest to Wayne: waves, DNA and the cosmos, the tapestries were most recently exhibited in Chicago at the Art Institute of Chicago, June Wayne's Narrative Tapestries: Tidal Waves, DNA, and the Cosmos, November 3, 2010–May 15, 2011.

June Wayne was a painter, lithographer, writer and filmmaker. She was best known for establishing the Tamarind Lithography Workshop in Los Angeles in the early 1960s and reviving lithography in the US as a critical form of art making. Wayne always pushed the edges of the envelope and loved to explore alternative materials, supports and artistic practices that had been overlooked, forgotten or not critically considered by others.

In conjunction with June Wayne’s solo exhibition, The Tapestries: Forces of Nature and Beyond, the gallery will also present a solo exhibition of a selection of Judy Chicago’s textile art, Woven and Stitched, and host a series of lectures and discussions, June Wayne's Tapestries and Judy Chicago's Textiles, in the gallery on Saturday, February 23, 2013, 2:00 – 4:00 PM. The featured presenters will include:
 

  • Elissa Auther, Associate Professor of Contemporary Art, University of Colorado, Colorado Springs and Co-Director | Feminism & Co.: Art, Sex, Politics, Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver. Her book, String, Felt, Thread and the Hierarchy of Art and Craft (University of Minnesota Press, 2010) is the definitive text that examines the use of fiber in post-war American art and makes distinctions between “art” and “craft.”

    Janet Koplos, a New York City-based art critic, writer and contributing editor for Art In America. She is co-author of Makers: A History of American Studio Craft (2010) and author of Contemporary Japanese Sculpture (1990) and other books. She has written extensively on crafts and on American, Japanese and Dutch contemporary art and has published approximately 2,500 articles, reviews and essays in some two dozen periodicals over the last 30 years.


In addition to Auther and Koplos, the discussion panel will include Judy Chicago, artist, educator, writer and feminist and David Eichholtz, art writer and curator at David Richard Gallery. Location: David Richard Gallery, 544 South Guadalupe Street, Santa Fe, NM 87501.
