Mesa Verde and Zuni-A 700 Year Connection
Legacy Gallery Scottsdale
Many of the works by Rock Newcomb include subjects the audience may never encounter in person due to their rarity and inaccessibility. Painting primarily with acrylics, he utilizes techniques previously acquired while using oils and watercolors. He paints layer upon layer of thin glazes to achieve a glow and depth seldom seen in this medium. Subjects include Western artifacts, historic and prehistoric; Native Americans and cowboys; various still life; landscapes and wildlife. Rock has shown at varied establishments, galleries and shows including The Smithsonian Institute, Laguna Beach Museum of Art, and recently a Solo Show at Casa Romantica in San Clemente, CA. He participated in a PBS Television series, “The Artists Workshop,” featuring his painting and drawing techniques. Rock has been featured in numerous magazines including Southwest Art, Western Art Collector, The Artists Magazine, International Artist and Art of the West, among others.
