Just in time for the coming of autumn is a group show at Greenberg Fine Art in Santa Fe titled Harvest, featuring eight of the gallery’s 23 artists. The show begins on Friday, October 16, with an opening reception from 5 to 7 p.m. and continues until Thursday, October 29. “We have many artists who feature fall in a big way, whether it’s a painting of a farmers’ market or a traditional cornucopia still life,” says art director of the gallery Bella Gaspich. “We’re trying to showcase just how everyone loves that feeling when fall is around the corner. It’s an almost intangible feeling, but [we’re trying to] catch that in a visual feast.”

With nearly 25 works on view, viewers can expect a wide array of subjects and styles depicting the harvest theme. Participating artists are Bernard Franz, Caroline Carpio, Joseph Breza, Lange Marshall, Laurin McCracken, Michael DeVore, Wendy Higgins, and Timothy Horn. “We’ll have the traditional Flemish-type still lifes from artists Michael DeVore and Laurin McCracken, landscapes from Timothy Horn and Joseph Breza, and sculpture from Bernard Franz and Caroline Carpio,” Gaspich says. “Bernard uses thin marble that is very classical and elegant. Caroline lives in the Pueblo of Isleta with her tribe, and she uses a lot of corn as symbolism in her pieces.”

With only two to three group shows a year, the gallery wanted to create a show based on a seasonal theme and allow the artists to explore what that means to them. “Michael DeVore is such an incredible artist who paints like Rembrandt and Vermeer—very traditional, and he only paints from life. With his work you really can’t tell whether it was painted yesterday or three hundred years ago,” says Gaspich. “And we have an amazing still life by Wendy Higgins called HOPI LEGACY that actually isn’t a new piece, but we feel it fits, and we wanted to showcase it. It will be a wide array of art.” —Joe Kovack
