The Pantone Postcard Project

Santa Fe Book Arts Group

August 24  –   September 8

 

 

The Pantone color-matching technology company offers a universal, standardized system of shades and tints. In 2013, artist Emily Martin began a mail art project with Pantone’s colored post cards and one hundred artists. With Martin’s permission, the Santa Fe Book Arts Group sponsored a mail art project for its membership. The two hundred postcards, collected over two years, were displayed in the Axle mobile gallery.

This pair of exhibitions explores the relationship between art and nature, creates awareness of our local natural resources, and promotes wetland and ecological conservation. The artists will create ephemeral sculptural artworks using natural materials in sites in the Leonora Curtin Wetland Preserve in La Cienega. Works will be on view at the preserve throughout the months of September and October. A companion exhibition of related works by the same artists will open in the Axle Contemporary mobile gallery on September 1 and continue through September 23. This is the third iteration of the Wilderness Acts Biennial, which began in 2014. Works in this exhibition include a small shelter constructed from "invasive" saplings, a day-long performance ritual of seed distribution, and beavers sculpted from mud.

The Santa Fe Botanical Garden's Leonora Curtin Wetland Preserve is a 35-acre nature preserve and home to a rare natural cienega (marsh) and hosts a bountiful diversity of plants and wildlife.
