Amapola artists’ co-op Gallery is pleased to present photographer Patrick O’Brien and glass maven Diana Swanson as our September Featured Artists.
Pat O’Brien calls himself, “Just another photographer. ” Don’t you believe it. His images of buffalo, eagles and other southwestern creatures are so full of life they almost radiate body heat. Views of lonesome churches and homesteads impart a strong sense of the stark, serene beauty of New Mexico. Light, angle, subject- -Pat gets it right.
Diana Swanson is a self-proclaimed “glassaholic. ” Her work is joyfully colorful and intense and encompasses a wide variety of both ornamental and functional pieces. These will brighten your home and lighten your day.
O’Brien and Swanson, together at Amapola Gallery for September. Meet them at the artists’ reception Friday, September 1, from 4-7 p.m.
The gallery is open daily 10 to 5 at 205 Romero N.W, on the Plaza in historic Old Town. 242-4311 and amapolagallery.com.
