Tony DeLap: A Unique Perspective takes a look at the art and career of California artist Tony DeLap, pioneer of West Coast minimalism and Op Art. The film, from Director Dale Schierholt, brings us inside the studio of this renowned painter and sculptor. Viewers will have the opportunity to witness DeLap at work and listen as he engages in the intimate and candid discussions. Throughout the film, DeLap offers insights into his processes and shares the motivations and influences on his iconic art. The first in Schierholt’s series California Masters, the film offers each viewer their own personal studio visit with this engaging artist that helped define California Art in the 60s while continuing to produce challenging and powerful work today – well into his 80’s.

Immediately following the film will be a book signing for the new 192 page survey book, Tony DeLap, published by Radius Books and Art Santa Fe Presents.  Signed copies of the book will be available at each event and online for pre-order by clicking here

Friday, Julie Blackmon Signing and Exhibition

Join us in celebrating the release of Julie Blackmon: Homegrown with a book signing and opening at photo-eye Gallery.

Friday, September 26, 5-7pmJBC
photo-eye Gallery
541 South Guadalupe Street,
Santa Fe, NM 87501

Following the sold-out success of Domestic Vacations (Radius Books, 2009), Homegrown captures Blackmon’s ever-evolving talent for portraying the tension between the harmony and disarray of domestic life. As Seattle Times arts writer Michael Upchurch said of her work, “Visual jokes and puns are plentiful. But so are family mysteries, childhood psychodramas and painterly richness.”

Included in this new volume are 40 works made from 2009-2014, an interview of the artist by Academy Award winning actress Reese Witherspoon, as well as an insightful introduction by the renowned poet Billy Collins.

Janet Russek: The Tenuous Stem
Book signing and exhibition

Tuesday, November 26 from 4-6pm
227 East Palace Avenue, Suite W















Radius Books will host a book signing and exhibition opening for Santa Fe photographer Janet Russek in celebration of the of her new retrospective book, The Tenuous Stem.

The poignancy and promise of the life cycle informs Janet Russek’s long term photographic project, The Tenuous Stem. In 1989, Eliot Porter—her mentor and friend—gave her a monorail camera. The camera was too unwieldy for anything but studio work, and although she has always worked with 4 x 5 cameras, she set up still lifes for the first time in 1993 to use it in her studio. More…

Justin & Doug Kimball Book Signing at ICP


For four years Justin Kimball accompanied his brother Doug, an auctioneer, into the houses of the recently deceased or dispersed. While Doug cleared these spaces of items for potential resale, Justin sought within them the evidence of an individual’s life. Photographing the smallest objects, he reimagined their existence and relationship to their absent owners. “I use the camera’s descriptive power and the photographic illusion of truth to create the narrative and inspire feelings about its subject,” he writes of these images. “The resulting photographs are my perception of what happened in those spaces: who lived there? What was hidden and what was seen?”
