APRIL and MAY:
Likely Stories- Paintings by Laura Wacha
Laura Wacha’s paintings tell stories that linger in the mind like an unanswered question. Her work is full of cartoon-like creatures on brightly patterned backgrounds that leave an impression that brings one to go back to a piece multiple times. Wacha’s images are of the domestically mundane and globally tragic or vice versa. The creatures in her paintings are fantastical; they are reminiscent of science fiction characters in unusual situations and places. The compositions of Wacha’s pieces give the viewer an opportunity to “fill in the blanks”, so to speak, and create their own story based on their life experiences.

JUNE and JULY: Image New Mexico- A Juried Photography Exhibition
For the first three years, this contest was only open to New Mexico residents. This year, organizers Tim Anderson and Patrick Berrett decided to open it up to an international pool of photographers, with images being accepted that were shot in New Mexico within the last four years. The resulting exhibition is best described by juror Brigitte Carnochan: “Overall the show teased out many aspects of New Mexico—the crosses and Day of the Dead celebrations, the desert-wracked vehicles and sand-swept adobes, the colorful, diverse heritage, the abundant wildlife, the lavish spectacle of the weather and skies. It was difficult to make a decision and I’m happy that several photographers can be recognized for their penetrating visions.”The opening reception on June 7 will give the public a chance to vote for their favorite piece!Jurors: Brigitte Carnochan, Cat Jimenez, Robert Farber, a panel of internationally known, award-winning and published photographers
