Albuquerque presents two new art exhibits: mixed-media
works by Becky Holtzman and photographs by David Ondrik.
Holtzman's imagery deals with the interior of the
human body. She draws organs, bones, vessels - relating
them to personal or global issues. Fish swim around
pelvis bones; moons are encircled by teeth or pebbles.
Her work refers to the lunar cycle, to fish, to the
inner workings of the human body. In some ways, these
elements relate to water -- which provides the theme
of David Ondrik's pieces. The lack of water in the
desert southwest where we live is something that we
have become increasingly aware of in recent months.
Ondrik has photographed locations around New Mexico
that are affected by the lack of water. These two
artists approach the concept of water in completely
different ways. One has to wonder if the common thread
is intentional or coincidental, as Holtzman and Ondrik
are married to each other.
exhibits are presented on an ongoing basis, featuring
contemporary art which is made in Albuquerque, seen
in Albuquerque, or relevant to Albuquerque. Past shows
are archived below. Please contact us if you are interested
in submitting work for consideration.
