HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all!
This exhibit opens on Friday, January 5th, 2018 from 3-8pm. Lots of hours to find your way to the Unsettled Gallery & Studio in Las Cruces. Ten artists I'm told. And my first official show of this new year. The image shown is from a snow series that will be hanging in the gallery to give you a 'good' chill. The exhibit will last till sometime in mid February, but most fun is to hit the opening.
HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all!
Yes, it will be a fun and interesting hour or so on Saturday at 1 and I hope you'll be there. The Las Cruces 9 show and my retrospective continue to be up until November 26th at this gallery. WORTH A DRIVE TO SEE THEM.
My own retrospective is doing well sales wise and the painting shown above was the first to sell. But the pieces shown below are still available, and more. Lots more as I have 50 pieces on the walls and more unframed in a standing portfolio. Come on down! Feel free to bring your checkbook or put a piece or 5 on law away.
The Las Cruces 9 show is a stunner and I'll walk us through that show, too. These artists outdid themselves and have received many kudos on the work and their professionalism. WORTH A DRIVE TO SEE THEM. Lay away, buy it now... all available for your collecting ease.
See you there! Or see you on the November 2nd Saturday Art Hope in November.
Now for those pieces of mine still available...These drawings/paintings are on handmade paper at approx 30x22" and all are charcoal and acrylic and oil bar. The idea to do a series of drawings came after watching Jim Dine on Charlie Rose so many years ago. So inspiring, what an artist, what a guy! So first shown is NIGHTSHADE. Next is MEXICAN BIRD OF PARADISE. Then BIRDBATH AND FRIENDS. And last shown: CACTUS AND ROSES. Many more of these drawings are at the gallery pinned to the wall, unframed.
I recently sent you a blog regarding my retrospective: I LIKE YOUR OLD WORK BEST opening at RioBravoFineArt Gallery in Truth or Consequences, NM on October 14th (though the show and the one I'm blogging about now are both up and ready to view and purchase).
This is to tell you that I was asked by the gallery owner if I'd be interested in curating a Las Cruces artist's exhibition. I immediately agreed. I have selected only 9 of the many fine artists in that city to the south but that is only because space was a factor. My reasons for selecting these 9 had nothing to do with any theme other than to show nine professional artists whose work I admire. A lot.
This show: THE LAS CRUCES 9 runs now until Nov. 26th (same as my retro) and I hope you will join all of us at the opening reception on Oct. 14th, Sat. from 6-9pm at the monthly Art Hop in TorC....lots of galleries to see if you desire. But be SURE and spend a lot of time with us at our openings. Ask questions of us.
Whoa! A blog…it’s been ages but I’m still here in nowhere, New Mexico at work in the studio. This year has mainly been taken up with getting OLD work ready for a retrospective I am having
at RioBravoFineArt Gallery in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. Opens Sat., October 14th and ends November 26th.
This exhibition will have a lot of work in it, framed and unframed. The oldest painting is approx 37 years old. CHAVITA ON A GALISTEO STARRY NIGHT. 40x40, acrylic on canvas. Can be had for nearly a song. I am pricing these old works very low because I am desperate for storage space for newer work. With my husband being a sculptor we are out of space to store our masterpieces and we have a lot of them! So prices are ridiculously low. Example: 72x60” painting will retail for $800. The highest price in my show is $800. and the lowest, $100. So, if ever you wanted one of my pieces but the price was prohibitive, NOW’S THE TIME. Lay away at the gallery is ok, too.
Here are just a few of the many pieces I will be showing. And, lo and behold, alas and alack, today I pre-sold a piece to a visitor. Happy day.
More images can be seen soon at the gallery's website: www.riobravofineartgallery.com
And, feel free to call the gallery or contact me for pricing. Remember, they will NEVER be this low again. And please use my comment section, too. Would enjoy hearing from you.
My FREE FALL idea book will be at RioBravoFineArt Gallery in Truth or Consequences, NM for at least the first month of my show, NOW. I am putting a few online here in case anyone of you who cannot attend the show may want to purchase one. $25. includes shipping in the Continental USofA. You can let me know and I will let the gallery know to put a red dot on your page. Each page is 9"x 5.75" and acid free. All you have to do is frame! Thanks for your time and consideration....enjoy the images.
These drawings were done a number of years ago after seeing and listening to Jim Dine and his mate on a Charlie Rose interview. He was fabulous and his work was so inspiring...drawings at the time...that I did a series of my own. They were shown once in a Portfolio Show at the Tercera Gallery in Los Gatos, CA...again, years ago. They have been languishing in my flat files for too many years. Unframed. I am planning to display them again in a mini-retrospective next year. Thought I'd share them with you. If interested in any, please email. Approximately 30x22" but on handmade paper, so none are perfect rectangles. Beautiful, heavy, acid free paper with charcoal, acrylic and crayons. Enjoy. Tell me what you think, if you wish. I'd love to hear (and I'm tough if you don't care for them, ha).

I now have 14 pieces of art up on the Saatchi art site and hope you will take the time to check them out. Mostly new work. Many small pieces for my upcoming exhibition at RioBravoFineArt in Truth or Consequences, NM. Here's the web page for Saatchi. http://www.saatchiart.com/account/profile/183951
And here's the webpage for RioBravoFineArt: http://www.riobravofineartgallery.com/
My exhibit there will be in October of this year. In an adjoining room will be an exhibition by THE FAMILY WINKLER. That would be R. Wm. Winkler; Todd Winkler; Mark Winkler and Anne O'Sullivan Winkler. Will be an exciting show.
SUNNY DAYS, 22x30" acrylic and crayon on paper by Nolan Winkler (one of a few more representational pieces I will have in the show.
MY PRETTY PONY by Todd Winkler. On wood.
a MADONNA archival print by Anne O'Sullivan Winkler
I've been painting a LOT on paper for awhile. Did a number of colorful abstracts and now some not quite as colorful abstracts. I'm finding some newer imagery coming into view and it is exciting to me. As I may have mentioned before my mind is pretty much as blank as the paper or canvas or panel that awaits me on the studio walls. Then, on goes the music (Future Islands at this time...has been Glen Hansard, Fergus O'Farrell or Dylan in the past) and the paint starts moving. Sometimes flying as I had to clean up a big splotch of Hooker's Green today from my feet. So, let me just put up some of the images that have been coming to me of late and please take your time and enjoy them. I surely did enjoy painting and drawing them. The first few are all 22x30" and on paper.
ON A SALTY DAY
Next come a couple of small diptychs on paper...both are 11 x 22"
THE HEART OF EVERYTHING THAT IS
thanks for looking at these new images. I'm happy with them. There are lots more if you go to the LATEST WORK section of the site. And please feel free to leave a comment for me. I like to know people actually see this. Happy April everyone!
As the snow slowly melts here in nowhere, New Mexico, I am in the warm house rather than the freezing studio and painting 'snow' on paper. Each is 22x30" and I'm happy to say one of them is already spoken for. Thank you, sir.
. Enjoy the cold, snow with me. yi yi yi yi. And, if you're at all interested in one or two or three (an artist can dream, eh?), just use the contact information. Love those comments, too.
The first one shown here is a scene out our window. Of sorts. SILENCE IN THE SNOWY FIELDS. 22x30" acrylic, ink & crayon on paper. This piece has been spoken for, thank you, sir.
Next comes MY SUN EVERY MORNING. On this piece I have written about it: " The day began with a Payne's Grey sky and snow falling. My thoughts turned red to make a change in my day. Soon, the sun came out and I was, once again, happy with the melting snow." 22x30" acrylic and graphite on paper
Lastly (so far) is the first one painted: WEST COUNTRY SONG. 22x30" acrylic, crayon, ink on paper.
Adding the one I just finished today, 1 January 2016: THE WOODS ARE LOVELY, DARK.... acrylic, ink, crayon on d'Arches paper, 22x30"
We are having our first snow of the season here in nowhere, New Mexico. It's cold and I'm staying warm in the house and painting some pieces on paper. This one, WEST COUNTRY SONG (thanks to Edna St. Vincent Millay for the title), is 22x30" and acrylic, ink, crayon and graphite on paper. It's our day. Today. And probably tomorrow. I am waiting for the sun (California native that I am).
It's me, Nolan Winkler. Here to keep you up to date.
