1st Friday Gallery Tour
Tony Abeyta: New Works

May 2, 2014, Opening Reception Friday, 5-8 pm.


"Testosterone Flowers". 39"h x 31"w
Mixed media on canvas-mounted paper.

This much-anticipated exhibition introduces exciting new avenues fromone of the most eagerly collected Contemporary Native American painters working today.

While Abeyta’s landscapes, full of slashes of rain or jagged mountains, brush and water, or full blue skies, have been of recent focus, the artist has turned his eye to Sedona itself, producing a wholly new look of landscape. In the new works distinctive red rocks, Abeyta style, of course, take center stage. Also in this new oeuvre are florals that fill his canvases; these are not delicate flowers for the faint of heart, they are strong blooms created with a skillful combination of medium. Abeyta’s florals capture all the botanical reality of creation itself.
Also new are canvases filled with nearly abstract shapes that, upon inspection, reveal the iconography of our great Northwest and indigenous forms that have captivated for eons. Abeyta himself will be in Europe again during the show but has been working diligently for this Sedona exhibition. The exhibition runs through May 11th.
