Event Date: Thur, November 9, 2023 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM MST

Santa Fe Workshops collection of free online events, Creativity Continues features a special evening with photographer Reuben Wu and photo-eye Gallery Director Anne Kelly. Mysterious and captivating in both process and aesthetics, Ruben’s work involves illuminating nocturnal landscapes with lights attached to drones. The resulting images are otherworldly, depicting land and water in saturated color, bold and slightly surreal, crowned with the ethereal glow of cryptic symbols drawn in the air with light. Anne and Ruben end their inspiring conversation with a Q & A session with the webinar audience. Even if you can’t make the live event, a recording of it will be available for all those registered.

Reuben Wu is a multidisciplinary artist who uses technology and the concept of time and space to help tell compelling stories about the world we inhabit. Wu is also a National Geographic Photographer, Global Brand Ambassador for Phase One, and a leading artist in the NFT space, whose work belongs in the permanent collections of the Guggenheim Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the MoMA.

Anne Kelly is Gallery Director at photo-eye in Santa Fe, NM, and has been with the company since 2006. Established in 1991, photo-eye Gallery is a highly regarded contemporary photography gallery that showcases established and emerging photographers. As an active supporter of the arts, Kelly has a passion for engaging in conversations about art and creativity and is frequently described as enthusiastic, tenacious, and curious.
