Art Opening: Works on Paper by Denise Weaver Ross
Featuring local jazz band: C'est Bon
Dense is an artist and poet living and working in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She is currently recreating the entire deck of cards. These 26-by-40-inch works on paper use primarily oil pastels and pencil and combine the archetypes and myths from different cultures. The heart suit combines Egyptian and tarot images. The club suit has become suite of trees; diamonds -- the stars; and spades -- fossils and bones. This show will feature new work from the Star Suit along with selected images from the Heart and Tree Suits. She is also a published poet and will be releasing the second volume "The Tree Suit" of her "House of Cards" series of art and poetry books on Thursday, June 26, when she will be the featured poet at Billy Brown's Fixed & Free monthly poetry event. Her previous books of art and poetry, "Midwest by Northeast by Southwest" and "House of Cards: The Heart Suit" are available on amazon.com.
