First Friday Art Walk Albuquerque May 2019

First Friday Art Walk Albuquerque May 2019

Art Acrobats Dance Downtown Albuquerque Event

On the first Friday of each month downtown Albuquerque becomes an outdoor art exhibit and market, but actually much more than that. You can walk through an interactive light art experience, decorate the streets in chalk, and dance like you are trying to win a contest! Those are just some of the things I witnessed the first Friday in May 2019 in downtown Albuquerque.

Story of Color and Motion in ABQ

While wondering around downtown Albuquerque, New Mexico as part of the First Friday Art Walk event, a curious looking space had its door open allowing views of swirling color. To my surprise this visual art event was dog friendly so in we went! As you walk on the floor, color moves. How does it to that? Seemed like magic! Tables flow with changing patterns that react to hand movements, also seemingly by magic! People really loved interacting with light and color and art. This was a fantastic stumble upon experience!

Salvation Mountain at Slab City California

Salvation Mountain at Slab City California

Salvation or Dr. Seuss?

I have shown you a dedicated outdoor art exhibit in Slab City, California called East Jesus. Before you get there, you must pass Salvation Mountain. At a casual glance, this may appear to be a tribute to Dr. Seuss with its vivid colors and unusual shapes. It is in fact a very religious symbol, that you can walk on and over! You can walk to the top of Salvation Mountain along a vivid path that offers a wide open view. To the side is a labyrinthian area that is an even more of a Dr. Seuss meets LSD scene.

Ceramic Art Wall Pieces Ocean and Earth by Noah Starer

Ceramic Art Wall Pieces Ocean and Earth by Noah Starer

Ceramic View

Noah Starer is a regular art photography client based in Santa Fe. He is a very original ceramic artist. This time he brought to the JCP Home Studio these eye catching wall ceramic art pieces. I think they look like the ocean and the Earth with their respective swirling color blends. Imagine one of these pieces across from your desk giving your eyes and mind a creative break seeing something different in the piece every time it is looked at.

Santa Fe Ceramic Art Photography

Santa Fe ceramic artist Noah Starer usually brings his art to my Home Studio to be photographed, but this time I took the photo studio to his art studio up in Santa Fe. Why? Because he has created a new serious of modular ceramic art that just has way too many individual pieces to move all the way to Albuquerque and also he would have to stay on site to setup each group, whereas normally they are just single pieces that I can place and photograph myself.

Slab City no longer like Easy Rider era

Slab City. It was a mysterious place floating in my mind for decades, ever since seeing Easy Rider. In my memory the movie showed Slab City as a place in California you can just setup and live, on empty slabs of concrete out in the desert. In preparing to go to Slab City recently, I read up some about it. It was supposedly still a lawless place where the police did not go, and were not wanted. I was actually concerned about safety issues trying to just drive through Slab City. I expected to be met with very unwelcome looks, as an outsider. Slab City, I thought, is not a place for casual visitors.

Santa Fe Clay ceramics event

Long time artist client Noah Starer, now Santa Fe based, was hosting an event at his new studio and gallery space at Santa Fe Clay and asked me to come photograph the event. Even though I have been photographing his ceramic artwork for over a year now, I had never heard the full process of how he makes his signature naked clay pieces, and also the process for his new work. It was very interesting to hear the ins and outs for making ceramics and how things like aluminum foil can cut hours or even days off completing a piece of ceramics! Great presentation Noah and thank you for continuing to choose me as your photographer for your work and your events!
