Arte y Alma: A Tribute to Our Mentors, is the title of the May 2022 Exhibit at the Deming Art Center. A group of four friends and retired educators, Nancy Patterson, Cindy Solis, Kelsey Baker and Sherry Ellis will present, as the title suggests, a tribute to those who inspired them. Kelsey Baker was inspired as a young girl by her father as she watched him draw and make images come to life on paper. Sherry Ellis was inspired by her grandmother to be creative in everything she was involved in as a child, but her son, Jesse Kriegel, a Deming High Art teacher, has also been a real inspiration to her to get back to her art after raising a family. Nancy Patterson and Cindy Solis both grew up in families where there were lots of talented artists. They learned at a young age that working with your hands is a very rewarding way of life. Their grandparents and parents are still an inspiration to them today. The four friends will be presenting paintings, unique artwork using gourds, jewelry and photography. Don’t miss it! The Exhibit will be on display from May 2 – 27, 2022. The Deming Art Center is open Mon – Fri, 10AM – 3PM, and 10AM - 1PM on Saturday. The Art Center is located at 100 S. Gold St., Deming, NM – for more information please call 575-546-3663, visit our website at www.demingarts.org or see our Facebook page. This project is supported in part by New Mexico Arts, a division of the Department of Cultural Affairs, and by the National Endowment for the Arts
