UNNATURAL / Cara Romero
FERAL / Nicole Waszak
Saturday, October 1, 2016

Cara Romero


Stepping away from stereotypical Native American photography, Romero’s images are not only an accidental documentary of the past and now, there is also a reflection of the future.  “Unnatural” debuts for the first time in Texas and deals with the issue of climate change and the direct impact on indigenous people who are being subject to extreme weather patterns which attribute to the rising water levels. In compulsive need for content, Romero confronts the viewer with a flood and a drowning of not only in flesh, but in account of tribal identity. The content shifts from this more serious subject matter to an editorial portrait of present-day native people and pop culture.   A former Montrose resident, Cara Romero is a University of Houston graduate who currently lives and works in New Mexico.



Nicole Waszak


Staying in theme with powerful women in art, we are pleased to expand on our love for the west coast and present Nicole Waszak’s new paintings in the stunning exhibition, “Feral”.  Characterized by beautiful patterns in the background of contemporary life, Waszak portrays ephemeral adolescence in lush vignettes.  “Feral” identifies the purity of thought and daydreams of past incarnations through a heroine character worthy of The Brothers Grimm. Caught up in magical events where animals and humans interchange roles and species, our heroine presents fables in mid-story, suspending any lessons to be learned while concealing any intimations of the clandestine endings. These ever changing environments reflect Waszak’s own journey of moving several times in childhood. She lives and works in southern California and her limited productions of paintings are coveted nationally and internationally.




POLL(ITICS) 2016 / THE DOCUMENTARY
a documentary of Decision 2016 in print, photography, social media and memorabilia
June 11 - July 29, 2016

Kevin Bradley, Joseph Cuillier, Tom Hück, 

Phillip Kremer, David Krueger,  Armita Pebdani, SABO

 

Apama Mackey Gallery presents POLL(ITICS) 2016 / THE DOCUMENTARY;  a look at the response to the 2016 election(s).  This time, it’s different and as stated in the Wall Street Journal, “the presidential campaign is being conducted against an unprecedented backdrop of disdain for the political establishment and the status quo in Washington.”  Politics is not new, elections are not new, what is new is that it is an election of anything goes.  At some point, we are not even dealing with an election anymore, it is a dystopia of school yard bullying and everyone, at every age, is involved. 

 

POLL(ITICS) 2016 / THE DOCUMENTARY exhibits artists using their voice through photography, video, painting, and print.  The exhibition will also feature a wall of memorabilia, complete with official exhibition documentation.  Memorabilia will include countless opinions on the candidates and issues in today’s climate; spanning from Black Lives Matter to ISIS.  Exhibition dates are June 11 through July 31, 2016.
