Art in Santa Fe

Canyon Road is an area where there are many artist galleries clustered together, so on Saturday I was able to visit a few of them.

I went to visit the Gallerie Corazon. Heidi Kujat is an artist who displays her work in this gallery, and I have been drawn to not only her sculpture but to the way she works and designs her pieces. Heidi sculpts in bronze, and her pieces are women. Some are what she calls “tree goddesses” in that their skirts extend out what appears to be roots. Each of Heidi’s pieces represent and portray some feeling or emotion. My three favorite were Clarity, Heart Path, and Setting Dreams in Motion. Here you can see Heart Path, and I must say this was my absolute favorite. She is not a tree goddess, but one of Heidi’s other limited edition pieces. Heart Path revolves around the emotion of forgiveness. You can see it here, with Heidi.

I plan to own one of Heidi’s pieces in the future. So, it’s time to start securing additional means of making my ‘art’ money. By this I mean.. I only buy art with monies I generate from my own art. So… time to get busy. I’ll figure it out.

The Jane Sauer Gallery had just opened a new show by Mary O’Shaughnessy. It is called Daughters of Memory, and is a collection of dress form/mannequins built into art pieces using a variety of materials, particularly paper. The show runs through the month of October until the 27th, so if you are Santa Fe, it is a “must see”.

Yes Sadie, it is a wonderful piece or art! Her maker, Heidi, is a most-interesting person. You can feel her spirituality as you talk to her. She is very grounded, and this comes out in her work.
