Larry Lytle of Black & White Magazine authored a 2-page story on Director, Jennifer DeCarlo, in the April issue. We were the first subject in a new column on Art Dealers. We are honored by the coverage; excerpt follows.
DeCarlo feels a sense of responsibility to the larger art community. She explains, “I’m trying to cultivate the next generation of artists as well as cultural consumers. Keeping a gallery open to the public is very important to a sustainable and healthy cultural community . . . We vet, make sense of and help decode the current work. We provide the viewer a place to see the work, mark it in time and place, and create a history through exhibitions.” - Larry LytleRead More

DeCarlo’s eclectic stable favors work with complex and often elegiac narratives, including imagery by Mexican-born Tatiana Parcero, who overlays images of her own body with cosmological maps and anatomical diagrams, and Paul Turounet, whose recent exhibition at the New Mexico State University Art Gallery displayed his photographs of illegal immigrants on an actual wall salvaged from the border between the U.S. and Mexico. “The border is just 20 minutes from my house,” says DeCarlo. “We should just have as our motto ‘Let Art Lead The Way.’ I may run this gallery by myself, but I almost always use the plural when I refer to what we do here. It’s the artists, and all the collaborators, and all the vast issues that surround us. It’s not just me.”
