Show of Trish Meyer-Experimental Printmaker
Local Treasure 2018
Trish Meyer, originally from Dublin, Ireland, has enjoyed a variety of creative careers from musician to graphics designer for film and video before falling under the spell of printmaking.
For Critical Points, Meyer works with paper and fiber placing an emphasis on experimental processes, combining calligraphic marks with hybrid printmaking and 19th century photographic techniques. Her Critical Points show offers subtle political commentary, hidden in plain sight inside her abstract designs and mark-making.
To learn more about the techniques and ideas behind Meyer's new body of work, join us on September 15 for a fascinating Artist Talk where she will describe her process from computer-dengerated imagery to cyanotypes and hand-cranked traditional printmaking. She will also reveal to you the messages - many ultimately uplifting, despite today's political climate - concealed inside her work.

Title: Stillness Moves in Nature
Solo Show of Peggy Trigg-Painting
Show Closes: August 31, 2018
Peggy Trigg is a native New Mexican. She was born in Santa Fe and raised on cattle ranches outside Cerrillos and Madrid. Her first home was the Palace Hotel in downtown Cerrillos. As a youth, she spent most of her time taking care of livestock, tending to the chores common to ranch life and drawing rough sketches of her surroundings. later, she taught Advanced Placement art to high school students. Peggy now lives and creates art in Questa, NM. Her work is show in many galleries in New Mexico. Peggy also has many pieces in public arts locations throughout New Mexico and Japan.
The artist uses a palate of colors that are striking in their originality and strength. The fluid brush strokes add a subtle texture and energy to the surface. The rendering is somewhat impressionistic and often inspired by the subject matter. The artist is able to use her technical mastery to produce work that makes a strong first impression yet gradually reveals the depth of her love for the landscape she inhibits. Peggy works in both oils and acrylics.
