World Aids Day - December 1, 2019

 Please join Las Manos on November 29th through December 1st for an exhibition in recognition of World Aids Day. The gallery will be featuring new work from Jeffrey Janson, Michelle Peterson Albandoz and Michael McGuire. The title ‘The Second Arrow’ comes from the Buddhist concept regarding ones reactions to difficult events. In this concept first arrow is the event itself, which can cause deep pain. The second arrow represents our reaction to the bad event in which we can exercise a choice as to our response to the first arrow. The exhibition will reflect upon each of the artists experiences around the HIV pandemic, remember those we have lost, and pay tribute to long-term survivors. Join us for a conversation with the artist on Sunday, December 1 from noon until 4pm.

Jeffrey Janson - September 6 - September 15, 2019

Beginning on Friday, September 6, 2019 and running through the 15th, Las Manos will be presenting paintings and drawings from Jeffrey Janson. The show will consist of new exploratory paintings and older work that has not been previously seen at Las Manos.

This past summer Jeffrey has been mixing his oil paint with wax in order to make sgraffito paintings. The definition of sgraffito is to scrape away to reveal an underlying color and he uses this technique to depict meaningful objects of a recently departed friend. The inclusion of satellites and other space objects within these paintings is a nod to this summers 50th anniversary of Apollo moon landing, an event that acts as both a nostalgic touchstone and apt metaphor. Many of these new paintings might be described as white lines emerging out of the blackness and the color black works as a conceptual anchor in many of Jeffrey's new paintings.

In addition the show will include new plein air paintings and two early large abstract drawings. It will be a nice cross section of Jeffrey's work.

Join us on Friday, September 6 from 6 to 9 for the opening reception, the garden will be open.

Jessie Mott - New Drawings - Friday, August 23, 2019 - 6 to 9pm

   On Friday, August 23rd Las Manos will be showing new drawings by Jessie Mott. Please join us from 6 to 9pm for a reception to celebrate Jessie's new work. 
   Jessie once again engages her exceptional drawings skills to summon 'creatures' that evoke whimsy and nightmares in the same drawing. Her use of mixed media and her skillful color sense is always impressive. It will be a casual presentation. The drawings will be unframed and tacked on the wall but the range of inventiveness is astonishing.
