continuation of a legacy
Porcelain vessels created by past and present UNM students - who are now artists, educators, community service members transforming our city in tile murals, the medical field, and with military honors; MFA students, stoneware potters, internet entrepreneurs and the art of the handmade in business. All are making our community and world a better place by what and how they create. From this diversity, the art of Arita porcelain vessels connects us all.
With gratitude to Sensei Manji Inoue for sharing this artform and for our international relationship.

Charles Castillo -Abstract Paintings
Castillo is best known for is layered abstract paintings that incorporate wax, oil paint, acrylic, steel and collage. His paintings are based on the southwest desert landscape although the abstractions and turns of meaning are his own. I used to be more involved in conceptual art, using photography and words to communicate. I am now much more interested in the materiality of the work and taking people to a place of mindfulness and calm with my art. i want people to incorporate my paintings into their lives. His emphasis is on materials and gesture, much of which he learned while doing graduate work at SVA in New York and having such mentors as Walter Darby Bannard and Gregory Amenoff. While his early influences included artists like Martin Kippenberger and Sigmar Polke, he seems to be more in the Diebenkorn camp these days.
