Friends,

Please save the date: on Thursday, September 18th, we’ll launch the Landing’s newest exhibition, which features the work of Taos-based artist Nicki Marx, whose primary medium is feathers.

In 1977, the Los Angeles Herald-Examinercalled Marx “one of the most highly-charged, deeply creative craftswomen west of the Mississippi.” Though she’d only started making art five years prior, by 1977 she’d already had two solo museum shows and six solo gallery shows, and Marx herself had already garnered wide media attention.

Marx’s art practice, which began with a series of feather-based wearable pieces including dramatic necklaces, feathered capes and decorated vests, progressed quickly to large-scale canvases covered in feathers and other natural materials and showed widely at museums and art galleries throughout the 70s, 80s and 90s.

Her upcoming show at the Landing will feature both vintage and new feather-based works-both wearables and wall pieces. And Marx herself will be in attendance.
