Recycled Heart: Artists of ArtStreet

Friday, February 02, 6:00pm

Opening Reception: Friday, February 2, 6 - 8pm
Exhibition Runs: February 2 - 22, 2018

RECYCLED HEART: THE ARTISTS OF ARTSTREET
Bringing the injustice of poverty and homelessness together, Recycled Heart is an exhibit that is uniquely poised to capture the diverse, distinct, and highly individual responses of ArtStreet artists’ interpretation of their community experiences in relation to poverty and homelessness.

ArtStreet artists channel the potential within themselves and within discarded objects to create something new. They quickly learn to see media in a fresh way, enabling them to transform raw materials into works of art. Their portfolios highlight themes of re-purposing and offering alternative perspective, much like those who are impoverished or living on the street must do with many materials and situations.

Exhibitions

Reverie: Katya Crawford & Mira Woodson
"Some people go to priests; others to poetry; I to my friends" – Virginia Woolf

Reverie honors the power of friendship to transform darkness into light, the mundane into the magical. This is a story of two friends embarking on day trips to escape the spiraling political, social and environmental climate. Drawn to aging and technological infrastructure set in the sublime New Mexico landscape, they conjure up a world where technology and nature coexist in harmony. They finally turn their attention back to the city, and use design as an act of defiance and a reclamation of hope. {main gallery}

Regrowth: Escuela del Sol Montessori Elementary Students
In a dystopian, yet wonderous, future of perpetual night, the world has become so polluted that the population has had to leave the earth – building sky cities that float far above the pollution line.  But a solution is taking seed.  Some brave citizens have returned to the surface and have started to regrow the environment.  They have built a giant hexagonal biome in which plants and trees are slowly growing, cleaning and restoring the destroyed atmosphere.  In the hexagon plants life flourishes and the light has returned. Regrowth is presented by Escuela del Sol Montessori elementary students. {front gallery}

Site Specific Outdoor Commissions

Expanding Sequence: Joanna Keane Lopez
Expanding Sequences is a site-specific installation that engages the landscape and audience in repetition and reflection. The public art work is made of adobe bricks that mirrors the historical usage of adobe architecture in the neighborhood of Albuquerque old town and beyond. Expanding Sequences supports, reminds, reinforces, creates and holds space for dreaming. {harwood main building facade}

Temporarary Outdoor Installation 

117 Wishes: Travis Tabet
This project coincides with the UNM School of Architecture and Planning class Ephemeral Landscapes for Social and Environmental Change, and will be one of three design projects to be included in Tabet's thesis. Working with the ‘Dream Scapes’ theme of Encompass, the design creates a dreamlike entrance to The Harwood Art Center using one hundred flickering LED candles. Light can serve as the medium to fuse art and architecture by transforming a commonly used daytime public space, into a dynamic nightscape.

Alexis Kaminsky: Outcroppings (meditations on space, time and matter) {front gallery}
Down in the Grand Canyon, the guide said, “Place your hand on this seam.” I reached out to touch the rock wall. “Right there, there’s a gap of 20 million years.”

The year of big rains that washed away our roads and remapped the land around us.
Climate change and our human hubris. The earth will continue with or without us.

HARWOOD STORIES

Richard Goulis

Former Harwood Employee

In 1992, I answered a HELP WANTED ad for substitute teachers at Escuela del Sol Montessori. There I met Friedje, who astutely noticed I had some experience in organizing artists and arts organizations. I began searching for interested artists and set out creating art workshops for the community. We soon began offering about 30 workshops, in everything from pinhole photography, drawing, performance art, to ceramics, mask making, video production and more.  After this successful summer session, I was offered a managerial position and began to see what could come of the newly minted “Harwood Art Center.”  After about one year we had 65 amazing artists in the studios, with a growing waiting list of well over 50 people, a working performance space, dance floor and darkroom, various gallery spaces, as well as classes just about every night of the week.
