FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE --- Antieau Gallery - New Orleans is thrilled to announce it will have a second home this summer in Santa Fe, NM from July 17 to October 14, 2017. Chris Roberts-Antieau, a nationally-recognized textile artist, will showcase her fabric appliqué tapestries during her Pop-Up Gallery at 134 W. Water Street, Santa Fe, NM.
Antieau, herself, is especially excited about the summer Santa Fe Pop-Up:
“Santa Fe has always been a magical place for me. It was my ‘go-to place’ for inspiration when I was beginning my art practice. There's a depth of spirit in Santa Fe, just as there is in New Orleans, and I feel drawn to it for that reason. We are very excited to bring the work from our French Quarter gallery, to W. Water Street!”
Antieau’s flagship gallery in New Orleans also started as a pop-up gallery in 2010. The gallery began as just a 30-day pop-up, and was so well received, that it remains in the same location to this day and just recently celebrated it’s 7th anniversary in May of 2017.
Antieau is a self-taught artist who has developed a unique mastery of free-hand machine embroidery, commonly known as “fabric painting.” A combination of the embroidery and the fabric appliqué technique creates a very distinct style of expression, all while exploring a broad range of subject matter, from the humorous to the mysterious. With over thirty years of experience, Antieau has exhibited nationally and internationally, including a long-standing exhibit at the Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, MD. She has formed a loyal following of admirers, ranging from long time collectors like Oprah and former President Bill Clinton, to the more recent collectors, actors Mindy Kaling and Blake Lively.
Antieau Gallery’s Santa Fe Summer Pop-Up will host an Opening Reception on Saturday, July 22 at 134 W. Water Street from 5 to 8 pm. Regular hours at the gallery will be 10am to 8pm daily.
