Warehouse 1-10 is proud to present
380/ A Thread between two Artist Communities
Michael Kotel Bisbee, Agustín Lucho Pozo Gálvez
Sigrid McCabe, Judy Richardson, Martie Zelt and Tamara Zibners.
Artists in Magdalena and in Roswell are people who gravitated to New Mexico from all over the country, and as far reaching as Santiago, Chile. From the high desert mountains of Central New Mexico to the plains of the Southeastern part of the state, they take their ideas from the history of art, from their own memories and from the landscape. Some of the work is a reflection of the natural environment, other work is from the internal environment of thought and imagination. This power, this feeling, creates communities of people who talk, listen and travel to see each other and the work they are creating.

Judy Richardson’s sculptures are built, assembled, and cast with familiar materials like wood, wire, metal, wax, and cloth. She fabricates parts to cobble together with the things she finds, transforming them into objects about political, emotional, and environmental situations.
Martie Zelt’s constructions incorporate handmade paper, fabric, wood, pigmented mark making and stitchery. Rooted in the practice of printmaking, Zelt stretches the medium to its outer limits, creating tactile constructions drawing on geometric abstraction.
Tamara Zibners dissects fragments from a multitude of photographic images and combines them with drawings to create collages with vibrant blown-out colors ranging in themes addressing motherhood to pure abstraction.
About The Artists
Michael Kotel Bisbee chooses formal elements for his paintings with great care, and arranges them on his canvases with the consciousness of an artist well-versed in Modernism and Abstraction, an artist who thinks deeply about how that history is reflected in his work.
Agustín Lucho Pozo Gálvez makes drawings and paintings that are dense, funny, complicated, and mysterious. He constructs his work by building layers of colors and images, some from graffiti, some from portraiture, some deeply serious, some more whimsical. Gálvez takes ideas from his experiences and memories and his extensive knowledge of art history.
Sigrid McCabe’s stoneware sculptures are inspired by the natural environment in which she lives and works. She explores that world through the prism of the animals’ experience, and sculpts figures that emote qualities through their gaze and gesture.
