Fall of 2018 was an exciting time at Light Art Space. The two featured exhibitions, Age & Seduction by Karen Hymer and the group exhibition Arizona Print Group were well received. Twenty-five people participated in the October cyanotype workshop with great results. Construction is on going in the back of the building – darkrooms and studio space are emerging. The plan is to offer workshops by summer 2019. Listed below are exhibitions, publications, and workshop opportunities.

September 1st was a great day at Light Art Space. It started with the Desert Aunties (my closest female friends from Tucson) organizing the food and drink for the reception. At 3pm the Silver City Chamber of Commerce honored me with a ribbon cutting ceremony. The mayor was in attendance as were about 30 other well-wishers. Between 3pm – 7pm over 100 people attended the reception for the opening exhibition, Age & Seduction. Many friends, family and former students as well as my new Silver City community attended the lively event. It warmed my heart to be surrounded by so many supportive, loving individuals. The exhibit was well received, a few Age & Seduction books and prints were sold and many people were excited to see the transformation of the space. As the event wound down we celebrated the Late, Great Aretha by dancing to RESPECT.
In two weeks the second gallery space will be finished and ready for the hanging of an exhibition of prints by The Arizona Print Group. The Arizona Print Group (APG) is a professional organization of printmakers from around the state of Arizona who are united in the practice of hand-pulled, original fine art prints. The membership shows work locally, as well nationally, and many also teach and give workshops.
This exhibition feature work from two of the APG series: “Squared” and “Color Blind”. Techniques include silkscreen, Monotypes, Serigraphs, Linocuts, Intaglio, Photopolymer gravure, and Woodcuts.
The opening reception will be on Saturday, October 6th from 3pm – 7pm.
Aslo taking place that weekend is the Red Dot Artist walk and the Southwest Print Fiesta. It will be a great weekend to be in Silver City – the streets will be filled with vendors and the Steam Roller print event will take place Saturday. On Sunday there will be a variety of printmaking workshops. I will give a photopolymer gravure printing demo and a cyanotype sun printing workshop.

In October work will begin on the front bathroom and office. Next comes Phase two, total renovation of the back of the building, which includes the construction of darkrooms, studio space, storage and a rear entrance. I hope to be ready to offer workshops by April of 2019. We shall see! Stay tuned and come visit!
