Hart’s humor and stylized perspective is highlighted through her screen-prints, Garcias’ traditional black and white block printed images give a bold look at the world, while Parker’s block prints and animation explore the tenderness of life in a harsh environment. The show combines these three styles to provide the viewer with a hard and humorous look at the Northern Desert of New Mexico.

Taos based artist, Luis M Garcia has been creating and honing his craft for the last 15 years. Working on one of a kind carvings for relief prints, in his studio in Arroyo Hondo, NM. His inspiration comes from his surroundings: the landscape, animals and the amazing daily sunsets.
Sarah Parker is based in Sunshine Valley, north of Taos, New Mexico. She currently teaches school while constantly creating art for the Ennui Gallery where she is a collective member. Her art examines the tenderness in the relationship between life and a harsh environment–in the land, culture, and politics.
Sarah Hart is a screen printer, illustrator and graphic designer from Taos, NM. Her work examines a balance between the technical discipline of printmaking, and the unaffected imagination and creativity that she believes makes art approachable and sincere.
“In these times of instant gratification, I find it important to savor and revel in the process of making art. Screen printing dissects and reassembles my drawings to create something entirely new. It prolongs the creative process, expanding beyond the production of a single drawing.”
