One thought on “Texas and Neighbors Signature Members”

  1. Jeff Potter pursued his artistic visions for over 40 years. In addition to painting in pastel, oil and watercolor, he was also a printmaker who created reduction prints with as many as seven colors and black-only prints. Jeff earned his BA (Art) from UNM and two science degrees. He exhibited in regional competitions for over 25 years and many galleries throughout the west. He founded the Alameda Studio Tour in 2011 and continued to promote the annual tour for the rest of his life. Jeff belonged to the Corrales Society of Artists, Pastel Society of New Mexico, Rio Grande Art Association and the Plein Air Painters of New Mexico. He was also active in Masterworks. Jeff was a signature member of the Pastel Society of New Mexico and the Texas and Neighbors Regional Art Exhibition. His work was awarded publication in American Artist magazine in 1990. Jeff exhibited throughout the west in juried arts fairs since 1990. Most of Jeff’s work is landscape: he often painted en plein air in remote locations, where human activity is minimized. In 2007 he formed a collaborative group – the Distractionists – to explore abstraction while still improving his more traditional techniques. He and the other Jeff Potter Distractionists created over 50 projects and exhibited their group’s work. Even his recent battle with brain cancer affected his artistic path for the better – more energetic use of methods such as complementary color underpainting to reverse hand painting. The results are scenes with great depth and interest. RIP
