tamara rymer

TAKE A GLANCE through the oeuvre of Tamara Rymer and you’ll find subjects ranging from southwestern scenery to cowgirls to horses to the Hawaiian coast. Diverse as they may be, the artist’s oil paintings each tell a story about Rymer’s own life from her vantage point, wherever she happens to travel. Even in her ongoing series featuring teepees beneath blazing sunsets and expansive desert skies, the artist’s structures are situated where she herself stood and looked out at the world at one point in time. “I paint what I see, what’s around me, and what I’ve experienced,” says Rymer. “I’m recording snips of time, right then and there.” Road trips between her residences in Santa Fe, NM, and Austin, TX, have inspired some of the artist’s latest landscape works, including striking…

FOUR YEARS AGO at Legacy Gallery, consummate western artist John Coleman debuted a major show two years in the making, with 20 artworks portraying the uncannily realistic American Indian subjects and scenes for which he is renowned. Now, at the age of 71, the esteemed member of the Cowboy Artists of America and the National Sculpture Society returns with another collection of 20 works completed over the last two years and bearing the same title as the previous show: Spirit, Lives, Legends. It opens on Saturday, November 14, with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m., which the artist plans to attend. “The morning of, or the day before,” adds Coleman, “I’ll be doing a talk and leading tours, though we’ll break into smaller, socially distanced groups to keep people…

“IT’S FUN TO COME along on the journey as an artist evolves,” says Beau Alexander, owner of Maxwell Alexander Gallery. When that artist is Eric Bowman—known for his evocative portrayals of the American West, accomplished in a stylized realism that is wholly his own and also reminiscent of early 20th-century artists like Ernest Blumenschein and other members of the fabled Taos Six—the next step of that journey promises to be not only fun but also intriguing and rewarding. For evidence, look no further than the dozen works in Bowman’s solo show this month at Maxwell Alexander. Although the gallery remains open by appointment only, the complete show appears on its website. Bowman’s current state of evolution as an artist is apparent in the title of the show: Indigenous Suite. As the…

best of america

THE NATIONAL Oil and Acrylic Painters’ Society presents its annual Best of America exhibition and sale this month at Cutter & Cutter Fine Art in St. Augustine, FL. Now in its 30th year, the juried show features 150 works by 150 artists from around the United States and Canada—representing just a slice of the nearly 1,700 entries the jury panel received from NOAPS members. The group presents a slideshow on its YouTube channel at 12:30 p.m. on Friday, November 6, to announce award winners and new Signature members. Because the show’s other opening-weekend activities are also hosted exclusively online, art enthusiasts can still enjoy the painting demonstrations traditionally offered at Best of America. This year’s judge of awards, nationally recognized landscape painter Mark Boedges, presents a demonstration on Friday, November 6,…

COLORADO ARTIST Nathan Solano isn’t into labels. So when asked to define his style, he instead prefers to discuss what makes him tick as a painter: compelling design, color, balance, edges. Having worked for many years as an illustrator and an art director for numerous advertising agencies, Solano’s got a strong handle on it all. “I miss working with people and the deadlines—it was a rush,” he says. Admittedly, it was a high-pressure profession, adds Solano, but it instilled in him a sense of discipline that’s been useful since he began painting full time at age 40. From his studio in downtown Pueblo, he has explored a variety of themes in his oil paintings, including Native American figures and working cowboys and their horses—subjects the artist photographed (usually from his own…
