Witness: New Paintings by Roseta Santiago

Bear witness to a rich and wonderful world of intoxicating imagery…

SANTA FE, N.M. [May 11, 2012] –Blue Rain Gallery is pleased to announce Witness, a show of new paintings by Santa Fe based painter Roseta Santiago. The show will be on view from July 6 - 21, 2012 with an artist reception on Friday, July 6th from 5 – 7pm.

Santiago reverently paints objects of interest such as historic pueblo pottery jars paired with well-worn moccasins and historic Navajo weavings, or slightly meditative portraits of Native American figures cloaked in robes with deeply earnest expressions. Her paintings are at once magical and grounded. They evoke the past and the present, mystery and truth. In her newest show, Witness, Santiago urges the viewer to “bear witness, to really see,” as she puts it.

We invite you to join us at Blue Rain Gallery, as we “bear witness” to Roseta Santiago’s newest body of work. We expect to have 12 – 15 new paintings on view. Do not miss this exciting show!
