a sense of place

IN THE PAGES of Southwest Art each month, we strive to feature the most talented artists creating representational art today in the western United States. And there are many more deserving artists than we have room to showcase in our pages throughout the year. But there are also countless artists worthy of your attention who live in the eastern half of the country; many times you see their work in shows and galleries in the West. This issue’s features are dedicated to three such artists: Cole Johnson, Carl Bretzke, and West Fraser. These talented artists represent a diverse mix of subject matter and style. Bretzke depicts everything from city parks to nocturnal street scenes, infusing each piece with a strong sense of mood. Johnson captures all kinds of wildlife in a…

katy ann fox

IF YOU ASK Katy Ann Fox, the pink and purple hues of our world could use a little more appreciation. “So I’m always trying to find places in my paintings to put them,” she says. Fox travels throughout the West in search of landscapes and timeworn structures to paint—places with stories to tell, she says. But some of the artist’s favorite subjects are near her home in Jackson, WY. These include a small pink house on Antelope Flats as well as Jackson Peak, a prominent summit that “glows pink” on summer evenings. These subjects, she notes, allow her to use as much pink paint as possible. Another thing to know about Fox is her fondness for square canvases: her all-time favorite size is 12 by 12 inches. “It’s just enough space,…

reneé marz mullis

EACH MORNING BEFORE setting to work at her easel, Reneé Marz Mullis routinely takes a 4-mile walk into the rugged environs of the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument to soak in the sparkling light and the distinctly Southwestern terrain. The park—a 496,000-acre expanse of protected land that includes canyons, rocky spires, and rich desert plant life—surrounds Las Cruces, NM, a city Mullis has called home for several decades. Her studio itself sits at the edge of the scenic desert monument. When she returns from her morning walks, the artist promptly starts her workday filled with inspiration. So it’s no exaggeration to say, as Mullis often does, that a lot of her subject matter is right outside her door. But the artist’s oeuvre of sumptuous pastel paintings—created on black paper to make…

christine bodnar

TO SAY CHRISTINE Bodnar is busy these days is an understatement. The Marshfield, MA, artist teaches graphic design and visual art full time to middle-school and high-school students. After work, she regularly dashes off to her studio to paint, and on Monday and Tuesday evenings, she grabs her sketchbook and heads to the life-drawing sessions offered in the same building where her studio is located. Come summertime, when many school teachers like to slow down and unwind, Bodnar instead travels to her native Michigan to teach painting classes on Beaver Island. “Just keep painting” is a mantra that has long fueled the artist. She recalls a time, about 25 years ago, when she was taking classes at both the Massachusetts College of Art and Design and the School of the Museum…

jonason & woodard

THIS MONTH, Manitou Galleries on Canyon Road in Santa Fe presents a two-person show featuring paintings by David Jonason and sculpture by Greg Woodard. The show opens with an artists’ reception on Friday, November 8, from 5 to 7 p.m. and runs through December 31. This is the first show at Manitou Galleries for both artists—but that’s far from the only thing they have in common. In fact, the show, aptly titled Southwestern Synergy, reveals several parallels between the two. “An integral part of this pairing is conveyed by their experiences,” says the gallery’s Cyndi Hall. “Both Jonason and Woodard explore rugged boundaries and timeless symmetries within the American Southwest.” Additionally, both artists have recently been exploring somewhat new avenues in their work, honing in on their longtime fascination with the…

NOVEMBER IS often considered a time to reflect on all there is to be thankful for in our lives. And on the Sunday before Thanksgiving, the hundreds of western art enthusiasts gathered at Tucson’s historic Mountain Oyster Club are sure to have much to appreciate.
