Hans Harland-Hue

Current show                 Hans Harland-Hue 

Opening Reception: Friday, June 15th, 5-7:30 p.m. 
Harland-Hue's drawings will be on display June 9th through July 5th.

Hans Harland-Hue was born in Melbourne, Australia to an American mother and Vietnamese father. He has a dual American/Australian citizenship and makes frequent trips back to his homeland.
Hans is interested in changing the world through sustainable design and Biomimetic process. Biomimicry is the imitation of biological form and translating it into man made means. However, Hans’ focus is primarily on the metaphorical relationships between cellular structures and the urban environment. From this, he is interested in creating stimulus with given space through the movement of people. A cell can only grow with the transfer of nutrients from organelle to organelle just as people need to move from one place to another.

Adam's Rib is Broken? 

New egg tempera painting by Monika Steinhoff

Just returned from 3 weeks in Europe [Germany and a quick trip to Innsbruck in Austria, where I drew the beautiful Alps, very high and colorful .]
I visited with Europian artist, Friedrick Geier two times who lives outside of MUNICH  in Feldenfurstbruck ("Bruck"  being a small (by European standards) river, also from the Latin root:  "brook" - an idyllic village, perfect for an artist studio.    His new work is even more vibrant in color and I will bring some pieces back when we visit him again May 2018.

Spring Update

March 7 -- 2018 is well underway! A SEA has had a slow winter, which is normal for the gallery during the colder months. Our current show, comprised of works by Carol Hoy and Laila Ionescu, will be ongoing through April. We are planning a proposed new show for sometime in April, which will feature the work of Paul Hillman. Hillman is an Emmy, Peabody, and Dupont Award-winning art director and designer with over 40 years of experience in broadcast television, print media, and illustration. His work is primarily figurative, and his portraits are created with traditional drawing tools and paper as a medium. Hillman's work also includes a series of prints called the reddOt series; his proposed show at A SEA Gallery will include several of these prints.

The following images are from Paul Hillman's reddOt series:



March 2018    Two new shows are planned for the Spring:  in April works on paper by Paul Hillman  [see images below]   and in June by Hans Harland-Hue a wonderful artist finishing his architectural degree, whose drawings  with their delicate details take time to view.

          Wed.       2 days left of November!    Weather has been unseasonably warm, dry and very pleasant.  We've survived (and enjoyed as well as suffered through)  Thanksgiving.    3 of our 4 children came to dinner, with spouses, partners and 7 grandchildren, thus the slowness of gallery business, gave me a needed rest.     We're all longing for snow on the mountains!
          We've just been back 6 weeks from  Europe - it's been intense,    but the drawings I was able to do there,   keep the days abroad alive for me.   Progress was made on my show for late Spring '18:    I met with Dr. Philipp Aumann in Usedom and saw the rooms the show will occupy.   And finally the painting   "Progress in Eden"   has finally been located in storage at  the hotel resort of my German  nobleman where it has been since my show there.   So it is now being sent to the museum in Peenemuende;  that is a relief to me, as it was t he first painting in the series being shown--no formal title yet, but "Preoccupied with Missiles"  will do for the moment. 

Carol Hoy and Laila Ionescu's shows will continue through January 2018.  (see 2 new images of Hoy's)   Louise Baum's very subtle Monoprints have graced the entry wall and been enjoyed by all visiters to the Gallery.     Thank you for the pleasure  and inspiration, Louise!

July 15th  2017!        We are galloping through the summer!   Because of the on going process (2 1/2 years now)   of down sizing and moving out of our family home and my large beautiful studio as well as still taking care of the landscape/garden (thank God the rains have begun! so I get a break),  the summer is almost half gone before I  planned openings for the rest.    10 days ago Laila Ionesco brought in 5 dramatic new pieces running the gammut from humorously political to deeply, emotionally moving, as well as aescethically exciting, for her Show Opening August 19th.
         At the end of the same week I drove to ABQ (Corrales) to Carol Hoy's  Studio, bringing back 8 wonderful pieces that will serve as an introduction to her show in  September.   In the meantime the Gallery will celebrate all the gallery artists with    a  Gallery garden Party on July 29th from 3:30 to 6:00.   [More images for Ionesco later and a new Post for Hoy.]
