As the second installment of the "New Mexico Artists" series, the Millicent Rogers Museum presents Southwest Reflections: In Between Shadows of the Land. Supported by New Mexico Arts, the exhibition offers a diverse exploration of nine New Mexican artists’ documentations of environmental relationships and the ways these events become conveyed through shadows, reflections, and movements. The concept of “in between shadows” references the contrast of light in the land in tandem with the decisive moments that shape the future of particular places in the Southwest region, including the artists’ practices as actions of intervention and change themselves. The featured artists—Matthew and Julie Chase-Daniel, Dora Dillistone, Juanita J. Lavadie (Chicana/Taoseña), Lorraine Gala Lewis (Laguna Pueblo/Hopi-Tewa/Taos Pueblo), Pola Lopez (Chicana), Collette Marie (Mestiza/Chicana), Brandon Adriano Ortiz (Taos Pueblo), and Will Wilson (Diné [Navajo])—approach the land as a site of truth-telling from several cultural perspectives. Curated by Michelle Lanteri, MRM Curator of Collections & Exhibitions. $12 general admission. Veterans, 12/under, Museum Members free everyday. Taos County residents free every Sunday. Museum closed on Wednesdays from Nov-March. (Image: Will Wilson, Connecting the Dots: Cameron Straightdown Sefx, archival pigment print from digital photograph)
The Ten o' Clock Club, aka, "The TENNERS", will be presenting their exhibit, “Reflections”, as the January 2023 Exhibit at the Deming Art Center. In 2005, interest in art and public art projects brought five Las Cruces artists together. They decided to meet in various Las Cruces cafes at 10 am on the tenth of each month, dubbing the group as The Ten o' Clock Club. Additional artists have come along through the years, expanding the group to many more. Known for "contagious enthusiasm" and even "eccentricity," artists represent a diversity of art mediums: assemblage, ceramics, collage, encaustic, jewelry design, pastels, photography, printmaking, and weaving. Over the years the Ten o'Clock Club has painted an Organ Mountain mural in one cafe, plus have exhibited their work in many others. Most recently, the group has exhibited in the 925 Gallery, the Dona Ana Arts Council Gallery, the AA Gallery, and the Mesquite Gallery. During First Friday Art Rambles in Las Cruces, prior to Covid, Tenners showed work in many environmentally-related exhibits at the Southwest Environmental Center, and theatre-related exhibits in the theatre gallery of the Black Box Theatre. All during Covid, the Ten 0'Clock Club convened in the Agave Garden, beneath the shade of a giant tree and the beauty of the Healing Wings Project tree.The Deming Art Center will host a time to meet the artists on Sunday, January 8, 2023, from 1PM-3PM. Deming Art Center is located at 100 S. Gold St. in Deming.

Navigating the InternalPhotographic Imagery by Karen Hymer
Navigating the Internal explores themes of isolation, loneliness, and body image. As a single woman over 60 with an imperfect body, Karen Hymer makes self-images to navigate her internal thoughts and feelings. Evolving from years of photographing herself, these hand colored pigment prints blur the line between photographic reality and color illusion. Silk hangings and gilded prints will also be on display. Karen Hymer is a Silver City artist and owner of Light Art Space located at 209 West Broadway, Silver City, NM.
