Essence: A Three Person Art Exhibition

By Raymundo Lorenz

The Chapel of Jimmy Ray Gallery in the less crowded countryside outside of San Miguel presents another intriguing Art Event on Saturday, February 23 at 1 pm. Essence: A Three Person Art Exhibition will feature the art of Shirli Marcantel, Greg Ellis and Anado McLauchlin and this is going to be special. The underlying essence of this event is the immersion into pattern that envelopes the eye in intrigue and fanciful rhythm.

The Marcantel/Ellis collaborative is some times known as the Wabi-Sabi Collective. The Wabi-Sabi aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete" The work masterfully illuminates the beauty of natural forms. Botanical motifs in pattern and decoration are the recurring themes along with the glistening light produced by metallic gold leaf. Their collaboration has produced complex, evocative ceramic sculpture and unusual mixed media , and collage works.

Anado McLauchlin is the “in house” curator and artist at the Chapel of Jimmy Ray. His work glistens and glows and explores the underlying thread of irreverent placements and juxtapositions that map out the mysterious chaotic marriage of the sacred and the profane.
The Gallery is celebrating its Sixth Anniversary as an alternative venue for San Miguel Arts. The day promises to be a festive celebration of art, community and surprise.
