Joomi Chung, (In)Visible
October 18 – November 05, 2022
Reception: Tuesday, October 18th, 5-7PM

Strata Gallery presents a solo exhibition, (In)Visible by Ohio-based artist Joomi Chung. The exhibition opens October 18 with an artist reception from 5-7pm.

(In)Visible explores subjective experiences of time; simultaneous looking into and through another body; and the intersection between aural and visual experiences. The exhibition includes two experimental animations and a series of small-scale paintings. Transit (7:45) focuses on an experience of moving through time-space as a driver. Inside a Waterdog’s Head (6:54) portrays the world seen and felt by the artist’s dog, recently diagnosed with a rare type of cancer. While the two time-based works evoke a sensation of passing through a flux of time, the gouache painting series, Still Frames, offers a moment to contemplate the spaces contained in fractions of seconds.

Joomi Chung is a Korean-American artist based in Oxford, Ohio where she is currently an Associate Professor of Art at Miami University. Her work has been exhibited at national and international venues including Alice F. and Harris K. Weston Art Gallery in the Aronoff Center for the Arts, Cincinnati, OH; Urban Arts Space, Ohio State University, Columbus, OH; Urban Institute of Contemporary Art, Grand Rapids, MI; Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO; Seoul Art Center at Hangaram Museum and SOMA Drawing Center, Seoul, South Korea; and the University of West Bohemia, Pilsen, Czech Republic among others. Joomi Chung is excited to show her new body of work at Strata Gallery in Santa Fe, NM.

Strata Gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday – Saturday. For more information about Strata Gallery, the current exhibit, and the future schedule of events, please visit the Strata Gallery website and Instagram.

Tidal Time
Nishiki Sugawara-Beda
September 27 – October 15, 2022
Reception: Friday, October 7th, 5-7PM

Strata Gallery presents an Established Member solo exhibition, Tidal Time by Dallas based artist Nishiki Sugawara-Beda. The exhibition opens September 17th and an artist reception will be held on October 7th from 5-7pm.

Nishiki Sugawara-Beda is a Japanese-American visual artist working primarily on painting. She draws upon her Japanese heritage to explore themes related to culture, language, and spirituality rooted in Zen Buddhism. Connecting across space and time, she experiments in ancient Japanese materials and techniques including Sumi ink and Kakejiku landscapes to merge them with abstract and expressive forms familiar to the modern Western aesthetic.

Sugawara-Beda stated, “the series of work, KuroKuroShiro, meaning black-black-white in Japanese, offers internal landscape for all of us to wonder in and navigate through. I am fascinated with Sumi ink which allows me to connect me not only with my own cultural heritage but also with the land we stand on. I am thrilled to share my work with the Santa Fe Community!”

Sugawara-Beda exhibits her work nationally and internationally. Exhibition venues include Spartanburg Art Museum (SC), Morris Graves Museum of Art (CA), Dennos Museum (MI), Amos Eno Gallery (NY), Cris Worley Fine Arts (TX), and Asia and Europe. Publications include New American Paintings, AEQAI,  Athenaeum Review, London Post, and Art Spiel. Currently, she is an Assistant Professor at SMU.

Strata Gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday – Saturday. For more information about Strata Gallery, the current exhibit, and the future schedule of events, please visit the Strata Gallery website and Instagram.

Fragments, Juried Exhibition, Santa Fe

Eligibility:

Fragments:
This exhibition will feature artists whose work expresses and articulates the myriad, exciting and challenging ways in which our reality has become fragmented. All of us experience the dizzying splitting of our attention among the burgeoning opportunities of ever improving digital devices, the abundance of disparate and competing news reports and the allure of social media. Our bodies themselves are increasingly prosthetically enhanced, and humanity embraces the possibilities of artificial intelligence. Gene editing/genetic engineering are other visionary and ground-breaking experiments with fragmentation and hybridization. Contemporary art, as possibly never before, is an ecstatic discourse of fragmentary styles and genres. There are many compelling creative opportunities to embody this kaleidoscopic reality in visual art, from Neo-Cubist spatial fragmentation, Modernist conflation of surface and depth, Post-Modernist marriage of disparate styles and iconography, to digital pixelation, to the playful deployment of literal, material fragments in collage and assemblage. Any artwork that addresses or involves fragmentation/hybridization/cross-fertilization is a potential prophet or embodiment of this brave new world.

Fragments is a juried exhibition held at Strata Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The exhibition will run from January 3 - January 21, 2023.

About Strata Gallery:

Through collaborations and discussions, Strata Gallery provides a venue that encourages artists to experiment and re-examine what art is and could be. Strata Gallery does not favor any distinct style and promotes a range of diverse and authentic individual expression through a varied material practice, imagery, style, and ethos independent of any commercial concern. Strata Gallery is located at 418 Cerrillos Road, Suite 1C, Santa Fe, New Mexico 87501.

David Olivant is the President and co-founder of Strata Gallery. He was professor of painting for 25 years at CSU Stanislaus.

New Terrain
September 6 – September 24
Reception: September 9, 5-7pm

Strata Gallery presents established member solo exhibition New Terrain by Texas based artist, Julie England. The exhibition opens September 6, 2022 and is on view until September 24, 2022. There is a public reception with the artist on Friday, September 9, 5:00-7:00pm.

Julie’s paintings, inspired by the outdoors, especially arid terrain, will be shown at Strata Gallery, Santa Fe in September. England paints earth tones and saturated color with a sense of place, imagination and yearning. She invites the viewer to travel through topology towards the horizon, where earth melds with sky.

On one wall of Strata Gallery hang paintings with aerial perspective over Georgia O’Keeffe’s New Mexico properties. Discussions with the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, NM about photographing her sites led to this body of work. O’Keeffe’s Clouds Above Sky series from 1965, where land observed through the airplane window was a most original pictorial idea, is now commonplace. An aerial view enhances the viewer's awareness of space and triggers one to immediately enter the foreground.

The opposing wall at Strata Gallery holds landscape paintings featuring color and mark-making that convey energy from nature. Paint gestures capture undulating surfaces enabling a sense of movement while standing still. 

Julie England is an oil painter who grew up in Wisconsin, Florida and Texas.  Her artwork is exhibited in Texas and across the U.S. She earned a Bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, TX. After a career in the semiconductor industry, England earned an Associates of Arts degree in 2015 at Brookhaven College, Farmers Branch, Texas. In 2018 she earned a Bachelor’s of Fine Art degree from Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas. Julie lives and works in the Dallas, TX. 

Strata Gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday – Saturday. For more information about Strata Gallery, the current exhibit, and the future schedule of events, please visit the Strata Gallery website and Instagram.

Julia C. Martin, Roots
August 23 – September 3rd
Reception: Friday, August 26th, 5-7PM
 

Strata Gallery presents an Emerging Member solo exhibition, Roots by Arizona based artist Julia C. Martin. The exhibition opens August 23rd, with a special reception on August 26th from 5-7pm.

Julia C. Martin’s work deals primarily with the topics of mortality, ephemerality, and time. She photographs in the land to explore these concepts. Roots will explore the body’s relationship to the earth and their tactile and intimate connection.

Martin stated, “I’m excited to be an Emerging Artist Member at Strata Gallery and to be a part of the Santa Fe art community. Having previously lived here, I’ve always admired it. My work is about the relationship between the female body and the land. I’m interested in exploring how we perceive this connection and how the ephemeral nature of both the body and the land plays into the cycles of life, death, and rebirth. I work in a tactile manner and this exhibition will be just as much about the installation as it is about the images.”

Julia C. Martin received her MFA in Photography from Arizona State University and her BA in Film & Photography from Montana State University. Her work has been exhibited and published nationally. She is currently based in Phoenix, Arizona. This is her first solo show in New Mexico.

Strata Gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday – Saturday. For more information about Strata Gallery, the current exhibit, and the future schedule of events, please visit the Strata Gallery website and Instagram.
