What we're up to
Gallery Visit to Relic with Artists - Albuquerque, NM
Relic is an art gallery and mid-century modern showroom which seeks to promote local contemporary artists and display time-honored post-war era design. David and Aquilla Kappy curate the ever- changing selection of furniture and objects which enhance displayed art. In house artist studios invite visitors into the creative process for David and Aquilla, as well as notable Albuquerque artist Thomas Christopher Haag. The amalgamation of uses primarily serve to support the local artist community and start conversations—about the history of design alongside creative process and local happenings.
Thomas Christopher Haag will be at the gallery to speak to members about his artwork. Haag is an avid muralist, both commissioned and not, and he has painted buildings in many countries around the world. Using reclaimed house paint, found wood, and discarded books, he also constructs multi-layered, collaged paintings and assemblages which reference ancient cultures and spiritual traditions, but with just a hint of smart-ass. www.thomaschristopherhaag.com
Joel Davis will be at Relic to speak about his artwork. Joel is making fantastic biomorphic wood sculptures out of reclaimed wood. www.joeldavisart.com
