Summer News…

What a summer!  Well, here goes…

Light Art Space will be reopening on August 13th.
Hours will be: Thursday- Saturday 10 am – 5 pm. In order to provide a safe viewing experience, we are strictly following all New Mexico state guidelines.
Specifically,  guests are asked to sign a log, wear a mask, and stay 6 feet apart. Out of state visitors are asked to self-quarantine for 14 days when entering the state.

The Gallery is full of great work!  The COVID -19 exhibition, featuring the work of 51 local artists, is visually diverse and exciting.  I am so impressed with all of the Silver City artists.  Plus, the 9 artists LAS represents have new on view. both exhibitions are on view through October 3rd.

I am pleased to announce the upcoming exhibition “Facing Forward”, a juried exhibition of handmade prints (including photographic processes) created by women of color.  During this time of unrest and uncertainty, this exhibition seeks to present works by women of color that speak to the future in challenging and inspiring ways.
Deadline to Submit is September 6th. Here is a link to the prospectus.

LAS was thrilled to participate in the “Clay Reimagined” 2020 Demo Walk as part of the Silver City Clay Festival last month.  We were honored to host Lorraine Gala Lewis from Laguna Pueblo. Lorraine demonstrated her hand building and painting techniques.  Also on view was the “Community Art Installation” by Joao Galera.
