Jean Cocteau Cinema Gallery is pleased to feature Kathamann in a one-person exhibition in June at 418 Montezuma in Santa Fe. Friday, June 12th from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. there will be an opening reception. Multiple works on paper include line variation, a subtle palette, and amorphic form. Layering in acrylic, application with a squirt bottle, and poured areas with subtraction are some of the techniques used. From the artist, “I feel compelled to express myself in non-verbal, abstract languages in both 2 and 3 dimensions. I am intrigued with the open-endedness of abstraction. Abstraction provides its own continuum.” Several small sculptural pieces will also be exhibited. For press questions about the art: Kathamann (505) 988-1655. Learn more about Katharmann on her website.

The Jean Cocteau Cinema Art Gallery is proud to present the work of Nina Glaser from July 14th to August 18th. There will be an opening reception Thursday, July 16th from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Nina Glaser is an artist working in mixed-media and mosaics in Santa Fe, NM. Having grown up in Israel, and serving in the Israeli army during a war, has given her a different perspective and urgency about the world and human nature. She spent 18 years as a successful fine-art photographer. For more information about the work and pricing please contact Nina Glaser at: firstname.lastname@example.org ARTIST STATEMENT My work has always explored relationships in some way while not focusing on any particular times or events, I am more concerned with our timeless conflicts and yearnings. I use allegories about human nature, at times inspired by myths to tell stories. An example would be the myth of Romulus and Remus—which I have portrayed with a lone crying child being nursed by a wolf, representing both loss and connection. I’m fascinated by co-existing realities, contradictions and the tension they create. I was an accomplished and internationally recognized fine-art photographer for many years. I now bring elements of storytelling from that photographic work into my mosaics. I incorporate figures from these photographs into my current mixed-media narratives. The beauty and texture of glass have always intrigued me. Using stained-glass, with its endless shades and colors have opened up a new world of expression for me. Combining figures from my photographs with the deep colors of glass and other objects brings them to life with new stories to tell.

Jean Cocteau Cinema is honored to host legendary singer and songwriter, Tom Russell, on Tuesday, July 14th at 7:00 p.m. Tom Russell songs have been recorded by such icons as Johnny Cash, Dave Van Ronk, Jerry Jeff Walker, Doug Sahm, Joe Ely, Nanci Griffith, Iris Dement, and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, among others. No less than Lawrence Ferlinghetti, the legendary poet, has said that he shares “a great affinity with Tom Russell’s songs, for he is writing out of the wounded heart of America.” Find out more about his newest album here! “Tom Russell is the renaissance man of Americana: novelist, criminologist, artist, and singer-songwriter with an earthy, gutsy voice…there is some great and varied music here. A bravely original epic.” —The Guardian, UK. 4/5 stars, April 10, 2015.
