Summer news

Where did June go?  The summer solstice has past, the moon is full, and we are praying for rain and looking forward to a wetter July and August.  The tragic fires in Ruidoso remind us here in Silver City how vulnerable we are living in the dry forest. Our hearts go out to all affected by the fires and we send gratitude to the amazing firefighters who are hard at work.

At Light Art Space we invite you to the final week of our two nature exhibitions: Four Artists Celebrating Wilderness, an exhibition of paintings and drawings by Jane Seavers, Fred Barraza, Gay Scheibl, and Paul Hotvedt, and Inspirations From the Wild, an exhibition of Photography and Clay works by Karen Hymer and Zoe Wolfe.

The final day to view thees exhibitions in next Saturday, June 29th.



It is always sad to see the final day our of exhibitions, but we are excited to present two clay exhibitions opening on July 4th.  From the Earth, the CLAY Festival 2024 international Juried Clay Exhibition, features the work of over 30 artists from across the United States. The juror, Jared Tso, will exhibit his work in the Flash Gallery. The opening reception will be on Friday, July 5th, from 5 – 7 pm.  A closing reception will be held on Saturday, July 27th during the festival week. Visit  www. for the schedule of events.

We have three workshops coming up this fall.
October 13th and 14th I will be teaching a two day Photopolymer gravure workshop. We will turn your photographs into beautiful, unique etchings.  No printmaking experience is needed.

October 18th and October 19th Kathleen Koopman will be teaching a boat making workshop. No experience needed, just a willingness to play with material and your imagination. Each participant will construct a little sailboat, using recycled materials: cardboard, papers (music and maps), fibers, twigs, twine and personal found objects.

October 26th, 27th and 28th we welcome back North Carolina master gum printer, Diana Bloomfield. This three day Tri-color gum dichromate workshop is not to be missed.

Register for these workshops at or stop in the gallery.

Thursday evening life drawing sessions continue. 6 pm – 8 pm, $20 per session. Bring your own materials.
