A bold use of color is shared by the work of artists Amy Jane Johnson and Kelly McIntyre, June’s Featured Artists at Amapola artists’ co-op Gallery.
Amy Jane’s rainbow colors adorn not only wearables but also delicate and joyous ceramic cups, plates and bowls. Her clothing ranges from cotton socks and onesies through silk scarves and sophisticated evening shrugs, all hand dyed by Amy Jane.
Kelly McIntyre colors white paper with flowing colored inks. Over this she applies meticulous designs from nature, drawn in India ink. Her smaller pieces focus on insects–she admires their strong design quality.
All in all this is a varied, interesting and colorful show.
Meet the artists Friday, June 1, from 4 to 7 p.m. Enjoy their work and that of 38 equally talented New Mexico artists daily from 10 to 5 at Amapola Gallery, 205 Romero N.W. On the Plaza in Old Town. (505) 242-4311 or amapolagallery.com.
