Henderson Fine Art Gallery

Dancing Colors of the Southwest

April 29, 2011 - May 27, 2011

Reception: Friday, April 29 – 6 to 8 p.m.

You’ll feel at home when you experience the artwork of Randy Follis and Wanda Coffey, as the San Juan College Henderson Fine Arts Gallery presents Dancing Colors of the Southwest, April 29 – May 27. The exhibit will open with a reception, Friday, April 29, from 6 to 8 p.m.

With a passion for painting and the southwest, Randy Follis gives the viewer an emotional experience, as he portrays our magnificent local surroundings with oil and watercolor. Born in Texas, Follis came to New Mexico in 1965 – living first in Hobbs, then in Farmington. He has also spent time in Colorado, where he no doubt has gained inspiration for much of his work.

Painting the southwest is a challenge that Wanda Coffey finds exciting. Her work portrays the feel of the hot sun, brooding sky or the smell of horse sweat as saddles squeak, while cowboy and horse work together. Being married to a Texas cowboy and attending many rodeos and horse events, Coffey has compiled much reference material for mostly Western themes. It is the landscape and people of the west that give inspiration to her art.

The Henderson Fine Arts Gallery is open Monday through Thursday, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and on Fridays, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For further information about this exhibit or other Gallery events, contact Cindy McNealy at 505-566-3464.
