Traveling Ritual Magic: The House Shows in Burque

Andrew Hendrixson at work

Like some kind of old-timey speaker on the town-hall lecture circuit, Andrew Hendrixson wants to hear and be heard by everyday Americans. And seen, too—the Ohio artist and teacher comes to the Duke City on Friday, July 25, with paintings and handmade books in tow and a plan to share his vision of meaningful inefficiency.

When it comes to purposeful engagement with art, Hendrixson distinguishes between habit and ritual; “the frivolity of the former,” he notes in his artist’s statement, is “countered by the intentionality of the latter.” With canvases bearing everything from an axe to a cairn to an enigmatic message spelled out in crimson thread, the artist plans to practice his own ritual of positive art evangelism by traveling the country, visiting houses and small venues, erecting one-day galleries of his work and interacting with the public. He’s been to San Diego and Los Angeles and soon heads to cities like Chicago, Nashville, Yukon, Okla., and New York City. The House Shows comes to the Albuquerque Peace and Justice Center (202 Harvard SE) from 6 to 9pm and includes a short lecture at 6:30pm.
