ART[s]UP=SALON in Galisteo, New Mexico

You are cordially invited to the first event of Shaun Gilmore's art and culture salon, featuring "A Conversation," an exhibit of work by the Lady Minimalists, plus a champagne brunch and talk with the artists.  This event will be held on Sunday, July 20th at Shaun's wonderful, light-filled studio. If you are interested, please contact her directly at shaun@shaungilmorestudio.com. 

"A Conversation" will include artwork by each of the Lady Minimalists, plus a nine-part collaborative painting that was created especially for ART[s]UP=SALON.  With each collaboration we become more excited about working together and more amazed at how our individual contributions complement each other.  Please come and see!  The exhibit will be up through the summer, with various events scheduled, or you can arrange an appointment with Shaun.

The Drift Series

I am currently working on paintings for a show in September at the new Space Gallery in Denver.  The installation will be four paintings, all 12x36 inches, hung in a line stretching to about 20 feet.  The first two paintings are finished; two more are currently in progress.

New Website

I am very pleased to announce that I have designed and created a new website for my grid paintings.  I feel this new site enhances the minimalist aesthetic of my work.  Please take a look at dianemcgregor.com.  There is a scroll bar at the bottom with featured paintings, and you can click on the thumbnail above the scroll bar to get large versions of each painting.  Arrows to the right and left of the enlarged image will point you to the next painting in the portfolio. There is a place on the contact page to share your email address with me if you are interested in being on my mailing list.  Thank you!

Vibrations of the Infinite

Using the outer light, return to insight.  ~ Tao Te Ching

Diane McGregor, Vibration II, graphite on paper, 2x6 inches

 Those spaces between, 
however narrow, 
finite but possessing 
the clearest sense of infinitude, 
they reverberate, 
The spaces between seconds, 
in negative rhythm, 
the substance of time. 
Those moments between 
 between the connection 
and the shuttering of eyes.  

~ Michael Boiano
