Inspired by nature’s ability to weave itself into a knot, the smooth and twisted metal of Gizmo seems to achieve the poetic harmony that sculptor Gino Miles aims for in his work. Like many of his monumental and abstract pieces, this stainless steel sculpture can be turned and rotated, challenging the viewer’s perceptions. The artist states that this piece is one of his strongest designs. Gizmo, along with other metalworks, woodworks, and paintings, will be available in the upcoming ArtsThrive: Art Exhibition & Benefit event, hosted by the Albuquerque Museum Foundation.
Albuquerque Rail Yards by painter Aaron Richardson is another featured piece. Richardson is a contemporary painter who lives and paints in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This hyperrealistic depiction of the city’s rail yards shows sunlight streaming through colored glass windows into an empty industrial interior.
This auction brings together new and seasoned collectors and artists. Bidders will see works from artists selected through a juried review process.
