Wheelhouse Gallery, Santa Fe, New Mexico
a National Exhibition
From festivals celebrating fertility to the martyrdom of a bishop in ancient Rome, Valentine's Day was born out of auspicious beginnings clouded in speculation, mystery, history and romance. Every February 14th around the world, lovers celebrate with gifts of candy, flowers and jewels. Love is what fuels our hearts and souls. We search for it, suffer for it and embrace it like no other emotion. Express it through your art. Explore and display your greatest desires.
This National Exhibition will be juried by Bruce Helander. Mr. Helander is the former Editor-in-Chief of The Art Economist magazine and has written extensively on contemporary art and is a regular featured columnist for the Huffington Post.
As a curator, Helander has coordinated over eighty exhibitions of contemporary works. He has organized one-man shows for Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, John Chamberlain, Duane Hanson, Larry Poons, Jules Olitski, Dale Chihuly and Kenneth Noland, among others.
