Tina Mion, Live at DAFA
Tina Mion is describing The Juggler at the opening reception for her show, Carpe Diem, at David Anthony Fine Art November 22. Those in attendance interacted with her inspiration and process. We’ll keep you informed of future presentations, this show is up through March 1, with works remaining indefinitely.
Tina has provided original watercolor studies of The Spectacular Death Spoon series for purchase. She has never before offered the sale of her studies.
Amy Winehouse, “One of history’s most unique exits”
Study in watercolor for the Spectacular Death Spoon series.
Handcrafted furniture by David Mapes continues to be a mainstay of the gallery. Pictured is a custom media cabinet with hand-embossed hollyhocks in copper. Made in Taos.
As we are building the first annual Grand Exhibition of Photography for Aug 02, 2013, much discussion about the medium has occurred. Asking if photography is art quickly degenerates into a “what is art” discussion, which is age-old and answer-less. Ask the question “what is fine art” and you have another discussion altogether. So for now I will avoid those questions and ask “what makes one photograph better than another?”. Mike Mitchell, one of the photographers participating in the exhibition offers this: “The singularity of vision by the photographer”.
Clearly there is much discourse on the matter of photography. One thing I’m impressed by is how aptly “photography” still describes the medium in spite of the technical explosion as of late in regards to cameras, printing processes and new creative avenues available. Capturing light is what it’s still all about, recording photons.
