What's happening at the KiMo Theatre Art Gallery.
September 4 - November 15
Kimo Art Exhibition “Enigmatic” Opens September 4th
Works of Russell Adams, Reg Loving and Hunter Shioshita Featured
ALBUQUERQUE NM—The historic KiMo Theatre has a bright, light and spacious gallery that invites the public to experience a variety of artistic styles each year. On Thursday, September 4th a new exhibition will open with a free public reception from 6 – 8 p.m. for the three artists whose works will be on display until November 15th.
Enigmatic features three Albuquerque artists whose works are shaped by abstraction, technology and the landscape. The show is curated by Augustine Romero, City of Albuquerque’s Gallery Curator
Russell Adams holds a BA in Fine Arts from the San Francisco Art Institute, received a National Endowment for the Arts grant for the “Artists in the Schools” program at the University of New Mexico, and a full scholarship to Yale University’s Summer School of Music and Art. He has been an instructor in various art education programs for Albuquerque Public Schools and the University of New Mexico, as well as a number of out-of-state colleges and universities. His artistic statement is, “My life is about…the shapes of things.”
Reg Loving has lived and worked in New Mexico as a painter and printmaker for four decades. When asked what his work is about, he somewhat facetiously stated, “The search for the enigmatic object.” His work involves a process that aspires to abstract and personally inform traditional landscape and figuration leading to the achievement of personal vision that hopefully chronicles his journey as an artist in New Mexico.
Hunter Shioshita was born in the San Luis Valley of southern Colorado, making his way from there to the headwaters of the Rio Grande, then downstream to Albuquerque. As he completed a dual degree in studio art and creative writing at the University of New Mexico, he became interested in the fundamental structures of reality and consciousness. His work seeks to exist not only as a static physical object, but also as a dynamic impression in a ethereal world where technology enables the magical. His work has been seen in galleries in Albuquerque.
The KiMo Gallery is open during normal hours of operation of the KiMo Theatre (Wednesday - Saturday 11 a.m. – 8 p.m.; Sunday 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.) and during most KiMo events. During the day visitors are requested to enter at the KiMo’s Business Office at 423 Central Avenue NW (corner of 5th and Central) where they will be directed to the gallery to view and enjoy the exhibition at no charge. For the reception, visitors may access the gallery through the 417 Central Avenue entry.
