Saturday, June 6th: “Luz es Vida Art Show” Opening Reception!
What: “Luz es Vida Art Show: Light is Life”
When: Opening Reception, June 6th 5 – 8 pm (show runs June 5th – July 5th, 2015)
Where: OCHO Art + Event Space, #8 Hwy. 38, Questa, NM
Light gives life everywhere, but especially here in northern New Mexico, one of the solar capitols of the world. Light grows our food and sustains our agricultural heritage; it powers and heats many of our homes. On a sunny day, Questa get’s 80% of its electricity from the solar field installed on a defunct mine tailings site west of the village. And of course we mustn’t forget the unbroken light across the sagebrush that stopped a couple of artists in their tracks a hundred years ago, famously confirming Taos County’s artistic heritage. The open call “Luz es Vida Art Show” is a venue for today’s local and regional artists to present their own light-inspired artworks. The show is curated by LEAP and hosted by OCHO and will feature works by over 30 local and regional artists in a variety of two and three dimensional mediums; a wonderful sampling of northern NM talent!
A public reception is to be held on Saturday, June 6th, from 5 – 8 pm. Hors d’oeuvres, drinks and music by Bittersweet Highway will add to the celebration. People’s Choice Awards in several categories will be announced at the end of the evening.
