The Santa Fe Art Project, an exhibi­tion series that highlights emerging talent in the city's contemporary art scene as well as artists without gallery representation, continues at David Richard Gallery. The format pairs a Santa Fe Art Project exhibi­tion curated by gallery staff with a guest-curated show of local and regional artists. The inaugural exhibition on Sept. 9 included Basins, organized by Radical Abacus founder John McKissick. The second exhibit, Women's Worh, selected by Santa Fe Collective's co-founder Jennifer Joseph, opened on Sept. 30.

Now, SCUBA Collective (Crockett Bodelson and Sandra Wang) gives us Outer Local, a show of works by artists who have lived in Santa Fe, left, and then returned - including Susan Begy, Derek Chan, Andrew Cimelli, Cheri Ibes, Parker Jennings, Jessamyn Lovell, Ric Lum, and Kristen Roles. Outer Local derives its name from one of the first sculptures SCUBA made when the duo moved from the Bay Area to Santa Fe in 2011. The exhibit deals with the relationship of artists to place.
Outer Local is paired with The Santa Fe Art Project-Part 3, an exhibition featuring art by Scott Anderson, Erik Hubert Gellert, Caity Kennedy, and others. The shows open with a 5 p.m. reception on Friday, Oct. 21. SCUBA hosts an artist panel at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 22 as well as on Oct. 29 and Nov. 5. The events are free to the public and take place at David Richard Gallery, 1570-A Pacheco St. Call The Santa Fe Art Project at 505-780-8542 for more information. - Michael Abatemarco

Globalocation: Celebrating 20 Years of Artnauts
J. Willard Marriott Library
The University of Utah, 01/17/2017

The University of Utah’s J. Willard Marriott Library will host the art exhibition Globalocation: Celebrating 20 Years of Artnauts, Jan. 20-March 3.

Artnauts, an art collective formed 20 years ago by George Rivera, professor of art and art history at the University of Colorado, Boulder, consists of 300 global artists who serve as goodwill ambassadors, acknowledging and supporting victims of oppression worldwide. Their creativity has generated over 230 exhibitions across five continents. Five faculty members from the U’s Department of Art and Art History are members of the collective, Sandy Brunvand, Beth Krensky, V. Kim Martinez, Brian Snapp and Xi Zhang.

Globalocation derives from “Globalocational Art” — a concept used by the Artnauts to refer to their exhibitions in international venues. It is the mission of the Artnauts to take art to places of contention, and this anniversary exhibition is a sample of places where they have been and themes they have addressed.

“The Artnauts could not exist without the commitment of the artists in the collective to a common vision of the transformative power of art,” said Rivera. “The Artnauts make their contribution with art that hopefully generates a dialogue with an international community on subjects that are sometimes difficult to raise.”

Krensky, associate department chair of the Art and Art History Department, had the opportunity to travel with Rivera in Chile as part of an Artnauts project, working with mothers who were searching for their children who had mysteriously disappeared during a time of political unrest.

“When I travelled to Chile in 1998, George and I spent an afternoon with the Mothers of the Disappeared, and the meeting changed my life,” said Krensky. “It was from that moment on that I placed a picture of them on my desk to look at every day. I was so moved by what they each had lost — a son, a brother, a father — and yet what remained for them was a deep, deep well of love. They were fierce warriors and stood up to the government to demand the whereabouts and information of the people who had disappeared, but they lived within profound love.”

The 20th anniversary exhibition at the Marriott Library is a retrospective of the traveling works the Artnauts have toured around the globe. The exhibition will be located on level three of the library. The opening reception is open to the public and will be held on Friday, Jan 20, 4-6 p.m. Rivera will speak at 4 p.m.
