Las Cruces, NM – On this edition of PUENTES a la comunidad, bridges to the community, host Emily Guerra met with multi-disciplinary artist, Jo-an Smith to talk to us about her participation in the Border Artists’ benefit art show “What We Love.” A portion of proceeds from art sold at the show will help KRWG Public Media. She helped with the title of the show which reflects each artist’s choice of what they are currently making in the studio or a favorite piece from the past. Smith will be presenting her current paintings using an alcohol ink process along with her gold and enamel jewelry.

The art exhibit “What We Love” is on display through November 3rd at The Cutter Gallery, 2640 El Paseo Rd., Las Cruces, NM (at the corner of El Paseo and University.) Four members of the Border Artists will present art dialogues starting at 11 a.m. at the Cutter Gallery Saturday, November 3rd: Winfrey Hearst, Rosemary McLoughlin, Storm Sermay and Jo-an Smith.
