Thank you for a wonderful ¡Pollinate! Art Show!
Thank you for exploring this important and beautiful topic with us this year. A huge thank you to our twenty-four ¡Pollinate! Art Show artists who brought such wonderful vision and diversity of approach and medium to the show and theme. We got lots of great feedback on the show and compliments on the quality and diversity of the artwork.
Local and regional artists featured were:
Diane de Fremery
Geneviève de Vellis
Julia Ruth Claus
Lee Lee and Susanna Mitchell
Robert Perez Jr.
Thanks also to our volunteers, visitors and patrons, everyone who came out for the opening reception and stopped by during the show’s two-months in the gallery. Special thanks to Deuce Jazz Duo is Mary Rose (flute and alto flute) and Joseph Salack, (piano and bass) who played at the reception and to all of you that purchased artwork! Many volunteer hours went into making this show possible, and we appreciate every person that contributed in their own way during set-up, reception, gallery-sitting and take-down!
Special thanks to Jean Frey and Katie Woodall and Martha Shepp, who showed up just in the nick of time, for helping to curate and install the show and to Dawn Provencher and Ella Maloy for their great help with the Pollination Sensorium. Without these creative, capable women, the show would not have come together.
Kids of all ages enjoyed exploring the Pollination Sensorium: information, games, the “pollinator water fountain activity” and the magnification table were all a great hit! We look forward to expanding this hands-on pollination curriculum and offering it to more kids and in more forms in the future through LEAP/SEED programming.
Thanks to financial support for the ¡Pollinate! Art Show by Taos County, Questa Economic Development Fund, Chevron Questa Mine Community Fund as well as by other local business, individual donations and in-kind support.
Take note: LEAP will be taking a break from curating a themed art show at OCHO in 2017, but you all will be the first to know when our next local/regional call to artists is out for any future shows. Thank you for your continued support!
