"Jeff, Abby, and Friends"
Uninhibited portraits of a year we’d sooner forget
Bisbee, AZ artist, Jeff Hughart, unveils 2020 Unmasked, a remarkable body of work created throughout 2020 influenced by the tragedy, pain, confusion, and sobering reality that was 2020. While much of his work has a dark undertone there is a duality that exhibits a very playful quality — a style that Jeff refers to as “Tragic Whimsy”. Jeff is a self-taught artist who grew up in southern California, holds a bachelor’s degree in communications, worked as a technical photographer, played bass guitar in various punk bands and published a couple of fanzines. In 2002, he began painting, inspired by his artist wife and the many outsider and folk artists to whom she introduced him.
2D meets 3D
Where clay creates yet another dimension
Taos ceramic's icon, Abby Salsbury, has assembled a wonderful selection of her work from whimsical butter dishes to platters to wall hung tiles that illuminate the success of her life long exploration of two- and three-dimensional art making. All demonstrate her mastery of color, form, and texture in clay and in a style that is unmistakably all Abby's. A native of NYC, Abby attended the Philadelphia College of Art and the University of Colorado, studying in the clay studios headed by William Daley and Betty Woodman. Today, Abby owns the clay studio Butterpie Productions, and exhibits her work across the country.
The TCC continues to exhibit a wide variety of ceramic art and paintings from Taos' many outstanding artists as well as TCC members including: Lee Akins, Marcia Oliver, Gretchen Ewert, Serit Kotowski, Kim Treiber, Joanne and Kevin Dekeuster, Hank Saxe, Alissa Mittl, and many, many more.
