There are so many galleries to visit in our neighboring state of New Mexico this autumn specifically when pigments found in leaves and bright autumn foliage is produced – but one to look for is LoneDog NoiseCat Neo-abOriginal Art Gallery when they take part in the Annual Canyon Road Paint Out on October 18th and 19th, 2013. Ed Archie Noisecat describes their larger gallery as a venue displaying Neo-abOriginal Art.
LoneDog NoiseCat Fine Art Gallery Santa Fe artist, Ed Archie Noisecat describes the larger new gallery as a venue displaying Neo-abOriginal Art. Noisecat has been living and showing his art in New Mexico for 13 years and teamed up with another renowned artist via Todd “Lone Dog” Bordeaux (a direct descendent of Chief Lone Dog), and a member of the Sicangu Lakota Oyate in South Dakota. Todd is an extremely talented musician and an award winning artist in his own right as a master beadworker, and the culture he brings is highly contemporary with an ancient indigenous feel.
Arizona’s very own Chicano Picasso via El Moises will be participating in the Paint Out in Santa Fe, NM, since he recently expanded to Taos, NM. Other well known artists such as Ira Lujan, Nani Chacon, Karen Beaver and Rollie Grandbois will be participating not limited to other Master artists.
Ed Archie NoiseCat is a mixed-media sculptor who works in everything from wood, stone, steel, bronze and most glass forming techniques to sterling silver and gold. LoneDog and NoiseCat encourage their stable of artists to challenge themselves every time they step up to the easel/bench/drawing board. LoneDog NoiseCat strives to be the leading edge in Contemporary Indigenous Art.
Ira Lujan was born February 23, 1977 in Albuquerque, NM. Native American Indian from Taos/Ohkay Owingeh Pueblos. Introduced to glass blowing in 1999 when living in Eugene, OR. Lujan moved to Taos, NM in 2000 and started apprenticeship with the Native American Glass Artist Tony Jojola. He moved to Santa Fe, NM, in 2007 and is currently working at Prairie Dog Glass. Working with Jojola brought forth the possibilities of incorporating native themes and influences with ancient techniques of glass blowing. Today, Lujan’s work is highly influenced by everyday scenes of Native America. Lujan said: “I was fascinated by the movement of hot glass and the way it captures light, and the potential of creating Native Art with this exciting new Medium”. In 2006, Lujan was awarded the South West American Indian Arts Fellowship to build a mobile “Hot Shop”, intended to educate and demonstrate the art of glass blowing to the public.
