J. Carey Crane

The 4th solo exhibit featuring Carey Crane's abstract expressionist work opens with an artist’s reception on Thursday, March 12 from 5 to 7 PM. Crane’s new work consists of art work created with bold, gestural brush strokes and mixed media integrations, altogether dense often organized grid-like on the canvas. Other art works are created in a much more free-flowing, less dense, even lyrical style. The title of the exhibit, ZIG ZAG, accurately describes the contrasting styles.

These differences have always existed in Crane’s work but in ZIG ZAG, the work is pushed further into oppositional poles. External influences (a multitude of cascading forces that have buffeted the equilibrium of his personal, artistic and professional life), in addition to his innate style, worked to shape this exhibit.

As many know, ZIG ZAG may be the last major exhibit of Carey’s work in this region. He and his family will be relocating to the East Coast. Although the gallery will continue to represent his work in its studio gallery, group exhibits and occasional solo exhibits (we hope!), his presence will sadly be on a smaller, less frequent scale.

So please join us on Thursday (March 12) to enjoy ZIG ZAG and wish Carey much good fortune in his new home. Visit with us again on Saturday, March 28 at 1 PM when Crane’s artist's talk is preceded by a ukulele performance, featuring 6 members from the Las Cruces Ukes group.

Column heading for a narrative about the gallery

Unsettled Gallery is a unique, contemporary art gallery in southern New Mexico, displaying a diverse range of art styles and mediums by a select group of artists.

Located along the site of the celebrated Camino Real (the 'Royal Highway') within the Original Townsite of Las Cruces, New Mexico, the gallery building is an historic, adobe structure. Over its long life, the building served many purposes: family home, apartment, fruit stand, packaged liquor store drive through to name just a few of its personalities. Acquired in 2003 by an artist interested in saving old adobes, rescue and restoration began. The current owners completed a nearly one-year restoration and renovation in 2007 launching the building into use as an art gallery for which it seems happily suited.
