RioBravoFineArt: 110 N. Broadway

RioBravoFineArt will host the artist’s reception for The Quest, The Struggle, The Journey, a retrospective show of artwork by Dave Barnett. This reception will be a special opportunity to meet the artist and view over fifty of his large-scale paintings. Many of them are on the order of fifty-by-fifty inches.

This much anticipated event at RioBravoFineArt is a rare opportunity to see in one show a representative sampling of paintings from a variety of Barnett’s shows. Over the years, Barnett has created bold images of Southwestern flora and fauna, bosque and mountain landscapes, small town street scenes, and geological formations, both large and small. His images always give a fresh perspective and a unique view of both the natural and manmade worlds. Regardless of the coloration, form, texture and composition that Barnett uses in a particular painting, the drama is always great. Although Barnett has his own very recognizable style, or styles, he makes subtle reference to such diverse artists as Jasper Johns, Edward Hopper, René Magritte, and Georges Seurat.

Dave Barnett obtained an M. A. in Painting in the late sixties at New Mexico Highlands University, where he was taught by the well-known artist Elmer Schooley. Ten years after graduating, Barnett gave up painting completely and began to focus on pottery. Clay was his medium for the subsequent 16 years. In 1994, Schooley recommended that Barnett view a show of Impressionist paintings at the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, Texas. He has painted ever since. In describing his creative process Barnett says, “I am a selfish painter, and I must be very positive that what I am about to paint is a subject that has great appeal to me, or one with which I have actually had a visual encounter. It must also fit the style format to which I am accustomed.”

All three of the main level gallery spaces at RioBravoFineArt are being used for this special show. The Barnett show runs through July 21, 2024.


Angel Remnants: 405 1/2 N. Broadway

Richard Irwin's art story is very personal and self-directed. He has painted during different periods throughout his life. Art has been Healing and Spiritual through rough times in his life. In 2019, Richard started to study atmospheric landscape and abstract art. Since 2019, Richard has created an immense body of work and has been spurred on by the encouragement and support of his social media community. In July 2021 he moved to New Mexico, built an art studio, and is now painting full-time. Richard credits the creative process as the great healer in his life. Perseverance, redemption, and hope are represented through color, shape, composition, and playfulness. He hopes that his work might bring a sense of that spirit to others.
