The mission of LAS is to provide an inclusive place of creative discovery for the community of Silver City and its visitors. We feature changing Art Exhibitions, Workshops, Lectures, and other Events. LAS interfaces with local public schools and WNMU by exhibiting student work, providing access to professional art, and interactive art-making. Through juried and curated exhibitions we present our community access to work not usually seen in small, rural towns. We strived to show underrepresented artists including minorities, women, emerging artists, and those working in less represented media such as alternative photographic processes, installation, and video. LAS represents 9 regional artists who work in a variety of media. We welcome all members of the general public as well as serious collectors of art.
