RioBravoFineArt presents a show featuring two uniquely New Mexican artists, Nolan Winkler and Raul Dorn. The show runs through April 21, 2024 during gallery hours (Wed-Sun noon-5pm and during 2nd Saturday Art Hop).

Winkler, whose studio is in the former mining town of Hillsboro, New Mexico is a longtime regular artist at RioBravoFineArt. She has a distinctive style with an energetic use of color, graphic elements in abstract patterns, and, sometimes, a hint of a representational element. To Winkler, it is important that the viewer know that “these pieces reflect emotions, ideas, dreams…that we all share.” For this joint show, Winkler has chosen the title of The Dance Begins for her pieces.

Dorn has a long and varied career in the arts. His experiences in the art world include performance art, song writing, musical performance, media programming, and the visual arts, both teaching and creating. He has recently worked with the Seattle band Thorne and is currently the vocalist of the electronica duo Sister Black Lagoon. He shows in several regional galleries and is represented online by the international art site Saatchi. The acrylic and oil paintings by Dorn in this RioBravoFineArt show are from The Lustrate Series created over the last three years. The pieces in this series are an intensely personal representation of the artist and his approach to his art.

The show is an opportunity to compare the styles of two different artists while gaining an enhanced understanding of the distinctive characteristics of each one. As Winkler has noted on this show, Dorn’s “bold abstractions will go well alongside my strong, but quieter abstract works.”
