Dale Terbush: The Sky's the Limit

Manitou Galleries, 225 Canyon Road, Santa Fe, NM, The Sky's the Limit: New Works by Dale Terbush,” Friday, September 26th, 5:00-7:30 pm. 


Dale Terbush celebrates life by living in a constant state of creativity. He is an artist who thrives on productivity and sheer enthusiasm for his electrifying art. Terbush is a master at transforming a beautiful image into something that is purely spiritual and poetic. His art speaks for itself; elegant and mysterious, exciting and bold, Terbush paints a mood and creates a scene of mesmerizing magic.


Getting to the point of painting exclusively has been a challenging, yet very insightful path for Terbush. Initially trying to find “A Real Job,” he was fortunate to find a career in design that kept him centered in a facet of the art world.


Ever the enthusiast, Terbush found that life in the corporate world was lacking the outlet for his drive and desire to paint full time. So being an adventurer, he headed for Santa Fe, New Mexico in the early 1990’s to pursue his ultimate dream. Painting became his one true passion and propelled him in to the competitive art scene of Santa Fe where Terbush found his audience. In record speed the artist built a following of avid collectors and his dream soon became a reality.


An intensity is found through the use of color and light in his paintings. Terbush is a Master at illumination and the use of exciting, yet unexpected, color. Some have even compared his use of color to the 20th Century Master Maxfield Parrish. Along with his dynamic painting, Terbush also now enjoys sharing with his collectors his romantic poetry and inspirational quotes. Terbush is the quintessential artist and poet; his inspiration and energy is passed on to all who experience this work. In 1994 he once again picked up and moved to the art destination Scottsdale, Arizona, to further expand his market. Finding new horizons of inspiration and an even broader audience, Terbush continues to widen the scope of his work.


Whether it is an original painting or remarkable reproduction, Terbush’s work is highly sought after all over the world. Collectors of his paintings range from Celestine Prophecy author James Redfield, developer Donald Trump, Country Western singer Reba McIntire and International Heads of State - to name a few. Terbush has broken gallery records world wide and has had four spectacular sell-out shows in Japan. His International acclaim rapidly continues to grow. Terbush reveals beauty and emotion in his ethereal landscapes; each painting a poetic symbol of a powerful experience and a dream not to be forgotten. Terbush paints the Heavens but reveals the soul.


Show will be on exhibit for two weeks. 


Sculpture and Structure: Roger Hayden Johnson and Liz Wolf
October 3, 5:00 - 7:30 to October 17. 123 West Palace Ave.

Manitou Galleries, 123 W. Palace Ave., Santa Fe, NM, “Roger Hayden Johnson & Liz Wolf.”  Friday, October 3rd, 5:00-7:30 pm.  Manitou Galleries is proud to present new works by Roger Hayden Johnson and Liz Wolfe.


Roger Hayden Johnson captures the rich colors of sunlight at dawn and dusk in his architectural landscapes.  In search of old and indigenous architectural structures, he travels the back roads of the American Southwest, Spain, Portugal, and the Italian and French regions of Tuscany, Umbria, Burgundy, Provence, and the Perigord. He is fascinated with the few short minutes after sunrise, when the morning sun rakes across the landcape, and the fleeting moments just before sundown- as the last rays of the Sun slip below the horizon.  It is during these moments that the Sun creates spectacular long-shadowed light of intense, rich color and cool, deep shadow.  Johnson's use of this dynamic and rapidly changing light enables him to capture the ephemeral nature of this special time of day, while at the same time bringing a sense of stillness and tranquility that is inherent in his paintings.  


Roger Hayden Johnson taught himself to paint the landscapes near the small Iowa farm where he grew up. He later studied art at Central College in Pella, Iowa, and earned a Master’s degree in art and art history at the University of Northern Iowa and then a Master of Fine Arts degree in painting at Drake University in Des Moines. After having lived in Paris and Munich, Johnson moved with his family to Colorado Springs, Colorado. It is there where he began traveling into the mountains and valleys of northern New Mexico, and fell in love with the earth-colored walls of old adobe buildings. With its small Spanish speaking communities clustered around churches, the area reminded him of Europe. And when the sun slanted low across these solid, age-graced structures, he was hooked.


Liz Wolf works with clay, bronze and wood to channel the spirits of animals into mythical forms. Wolf also creates figurative pieces depicting strong contemplative women appearing as spiritual guides or disciples. Her work is a physical transformation of the visual and spiritual experiences from all that surrounds her, and can also be a tool for the viewer to access those energies.  Through her work, Liz Wolf makes the intangible tangible and the invisible visible. Wolf says, "When a work of art is not art for art’s sake, but instead holds a place in everyday life, it possesses a religious or magical quality and may even capture a part of one’s spirit or soul."

Wolf is grateful to have, "been enriched with a loving family and a mother who brought art from all over the world into my everyday life. Looking back at my childhood, I know that creative energies have always been with me". 


In 1997, Wolf moved from Chicago (her long-time home) to Santa Fe, where she currently resides. 


Wolf has studied at the Art Institute at Chicago, before receiving her Bachelors of Fine Arts and her Masters of Fine Arts from the Northern Illinois University at DeKalb.  Her work is included in numerous public and private collections and was recently featured on the cover of Southwestern Art.


Show will be on exhibit for two weeks.  The same evening is the West Palace Arts District’s First Friday Art Walk. 505.986.0440/800.283.0440.
