Taos Artists Beyond, Fall 2018
Vom Dorp in California, the Tajmagundi Club in New York, Livingston in Santa Fe and Larry Bell in San Francisco.
By Janet Webb – October 5, 2018
BeyondTaos’s October post about Taos artists showing elsewhere this Fall includes over 30 artists. Sasha vom Dorp‘s 15.15 HZ fills three galleries at Kellogg University Gallery in Pomona, CA. Twenty-eight artists who call themselves “Tajmagundians” exhibited their work in New York’s prestigious Salmagundi Club in September. Annell Livingston’s work has been installed in the new Presbyterian hospital in Santa Fe, NM. Larry Bell currently has ongoing shows in Aspen, Los Angeles and in September, a new exhibition opened in San Francisco, CA at Anthony Meier Fine Arts.
Below is a look at the work these artists are exhibiting with a few words from the exhibition curators.

Sasha Raphael vom Dorp: 15.15 Hz
Cal Poly Pomona
Kellogg University Art Gallery
August 23 – October 18, 2018
Michele Cairella Fillmore, curator, states, “These photographs taken in natural sunlight, are of sound waves made visible through the medium of water. Each photo represented here is of the same sound generated at 15.15 Hz. While not intentional, it is not an accident that they all share a certain eroticism. This is what 15.15 Hz looks like as it moves through water, and also through time. While the transactions photographed had all their infinite possibilities reduced to one by the artist’s own intervention, it is his intention that the dynamism that gives birth to the images has an echo within them.”

Larry Bell: Bay Area Blues
Anthony Meier Fine Arts, San Francisco, CA
September 18 – October 19 2018
From the gallery’s website: “Bay Area Blues will comprise four new glass cubes, featuring the eponymous sculpture Bay Area Blues, a large-scale work whose formal explorations revisit Bell’s 1992 sculpture Made For Arolson. Bell newly debuted the large-scale cube-within-a-cube format with his 2017 Whitney Biennial installation Pacific Red II. Fabricated with laminated glass, these monumental works continue Larry’s quest: to consider reflected light through paired colors.”

A note to all Taos artists: please let me know (email@example.com) about your exhibits outside of Taos – where, when, and what you’re showing. I find it amazing how many of you quietly work in this community then take the work to other cities for exhibition and sale. It’s a testament to the creative inspiration of this Place. Janet Webb.
