“After An Alpine Rain”     10×8     oil     $1200

The last quarter of the year is always crazy busy with art shows and intense production period.  This weekend, the Howard Mandville Gallery, located in Kirkland, Washington, is hosting it’s 23rd Annual Invitational Small Works Show.  Dix Baines has participated in this show for several years. This years paintings, “After An Alpine Rain” (8×10) and “River Light” (8×10)  depict scenes from his travels this past year.

"The Smell of Sweet Grass" 14x18 oil $2600

This past summer, Dix and I were driving to our son’s wedding in southern Utah. Having driven the I-70 to I-15 route more times than we would like to count, we opted taking a road that took us through Goblin Valley, Capital Reef, and Bryce Canyon. Both Capital Reef and Bryce are National Parks.  We had been to Bryce Canyon years previously, but never to Capital Reef and Goblin Valley.  All three were definitely worth the small road off the interstate.  While driving through Capital Reef, we stumbled upon the  image in the painting “The Smell of Sweet Grass.” It was rather surreal to see this image and reflect that it probably wasn’t much different from images of centuries past. The state of Utah has five National Parks, not to mention numerous State Parks that are well worth visiting.  Go to www.utah.com to  learn more about what the state has to offer.  For artists and travelers a like, the trip through the state is well worth.

This painting is one of five that Dix Baines will have in the upcoming Briscoe Museum’s upcoming 2012 Night of the Artists.  Visit http://www.briscoemuseum.com/night-of-artists/ to learn more about the show and purchase paintings. -Kathlyn Gogarty-Baines

“St. George Light”     8×10     oil     $1200     available through Dix Baines Studio @ 720.353.2670

The role of an artist is to capture images of the day and bring them to the attention of  members of society to appreciate and to leave a legacy for those who will follow.  The artist captures the ordinary and shows us that it is extraordinary, whether it be a landscape, a building, or people on a street.  They leave a visual history of our day so those that come later can connect with us. 

Ground was broken for the  LDS St. George Temple in November 1871 and the building was completed and dedicated in 1877.  It is a monument to the pioneers who left the comforts of their homes in the East and spread and colonized the west, and as they did so erected monuments to their faith.  Kathlyn Gogarty-Baines – Dix Baines Studio.

 
NEWS FROM DIX BAINES STUDIO
“I have been commissioned over the course of a year to capture the seasons at the Gateway Canyon Resort, in particular the Palisade, a dominant geologic formation that overlooks this property. In the spirit of exploration and discovery, this facility is to become a very special place to learn further about the wonders of the planet. It is my hope to record and share the sublime character of this landscape and the full spectrum of human feeling and emotion that it evokes.  

In addition to the grandeur, the wonder of this place is the light, particularly the first and last light of the day. It is important to celebrate and depict the untouched look of this land and the range of emotions that it inspires: from lone and dreary, stormy and turbulent, to illuminated and even magical. Sunset is as much a feeling as a visual experience and hence the challenge of capturing the light”.  JOURNAL – DIX BAINES

This is what Dix Baines wrote in his journal as he embarked on a yearlong commission at Gateway Canyons, Colorado.  An incrediable area 50 miles east of Moab, Utah and just south of Grand Junction, Colorado, Dix’s task was to paint the area in all seasons, weather, and light.  He fell in love with this beautiful area and over the course of the year and to the present nearly 50 paintings have been produced, with approximately 40 of them owned by the property.
