Highlighting how the American West has intimately inspired them to create gorgeous art, John Farnsworth and Michael Tatom have come together for a group exhibition. Where?
Opening tomorrow, March 4, “Essential Visions” is an enthralling joint exhibition of sculptor Michael Tatom and painter John Farnsworth at the lovely Sorrel Sky Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The show will feature a range of both artists’ works and call attention to their love of the West. The American West has inspired both Tatom and Farnsworth for decades, each forming a special relationship with the land and animals in ways that continue to manifest beautifully through their art.

As the gallery writes, “Each artist will present small works ranging in themes from wild days to wild cats: Farnsworth’s gestural oil paintings offer portrayals of life in the West and Tatom’s bronze sculptures present elegant, stylized animal forms. Each artist imbues his work with the essential information for the viewer to ‘see’ the world through the artist’s eyes.”
“Essential Visions” opens with a reception from 5 to 7:30 p.m. on March 4 and will be on view through March 31. To learn more, visit Sorrel Sky Gallery.
