The Art of the Matter
If home is where the heart is, Cardiac is where the art is. The annual event, now in its third year, was conceived by the Pop-Up Collective. These local artists (Josh Schriber, Jodie Herrera and Angie Poynter) have seized on the concept of collectivism and DIY spaces that's taken root around the world as an alternative venue for undiscovered artists. This year, seven local visual artists working in a range of media gather for a one-night pop-up gala and fundraiser for the Heart Hospital of New Mexico at the reimagined industrial space West Bund West (217 Kinley NW). Look for Herrera’s stark pop-influenced paintings on wood that capture the female form sans sentimentality, and the eerie, human-animal hybrid wood sculptures of Elana Schwartz. They’re joined by Schriber, a painter in acrylic on steel; Joel Davis, whose tile work creates earthy, figurative mosaics; Kate Burn, a photographer; Poynter, a painter; and Lance Ryan McGoldrick, who builds installations. The evening is sustained with libations and snacks from the New York Pizza Department, and the atmosphere is enhanced by DJ Boojaloo and Haldyon. Welcome home. (Ian Wolff)
