The Language of Shapes

Paintings by Vincent McGinley

The Main Library Satin – Reichman Art Gallery welcomes you to our first art exhibit of 2022, The Language of Shapes, Paintings by Vincent McgInley.

The show will be on view through the month of January.

Artist’s Bio

Vincent McGinley, born 1957 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Studied briefly at the John Herron Art Institute in Indianapolis and the Academy of Art in San Francisco.  

Vincent has been painting for over 40 years and has lived in San Francisco, New York City, Seattle, Portland Oregon, and finally settling in Santa Fe, New Mexico since 2001.

Artist’s Statement

I am largely self taught in painting, although I give credit to my life partner and fellow painter, John Block for his continuing support and encouragement.

With my modern and abstract paintings, I challenge myself to create interplay between colors and shapes in a depth of field. My goal is to always produce a painting which is both pleasing and intriguing to look at.

Faces in the Sky – the Art of David Wagner

Posted by kasandoval on

Southside Branch Library welcomes you to our first art exhibit of 2022, Faces in the Sky, an exhibition of art kites by public artist David Wagner.  The show will be on view through the month of January.

David Wagner grew up in South Dakota and has lived in Santa Fe for many years.  His main influence is the Western sky.  He works primarily in large-scale glass and steel, but also in aerial mediums with pieces capable of flight.  The exhibition features kites from two of the artist’s series: 1) The Face Series – art kites that position intimate portraits in the sky, inspired by classic Japanese Edo kites and 2) The Frustrated Flight Series– complex collages with text that chronicle our fascination with human flight and the struggles encountered on the way to its ultimate achievement.  These works are functional and fly extremely well, capable of flying in relatively light winds due to their large sail area and design.

Kites are displayed in both the main lobby and the Children’s Room.  Masks are required.
