I ♥ Art Valentine’s Party 2016
February 11, 7-9pm, University Art Gallery
Friends of the University Art Gallery (UAG) invite art lovers/all current UAG members in the Southern New Mexico and Western Texas communities to “Be Our Valentine” at the first annual I ♥ Art Valentine’s Party on Thursday, February 11, 2016, from 7-9 p.m. at the University Art Gallery. You must RSVP by February 8th!
The University Art Gallery (UAG) will present the exhibition, Water! What is it Good for?, at a timely moment in Southern New Mexico’s climate. Marking three months of post-drought and healthy rainfall in Las Cruces, this show will open on January 21, 2016 and feature works by Florida-based artist Bethany Taylor and Texas-based artist Brenda Perry. In Water! What is it Good for?, Taylor and Perry create critical spaces for viewers to engage with multifaceted environmental concerns. Through their art, Taylor and Perry ask viewers to consider meanings and practices of sustainability, water rights, renewable natural resources, and environmental consciousness. From a pool of fifty submissions to the UAG’s open call for proposals, the UAG Exhibition Review Board selected Taylor and Perry, who provided separate applications, to mount this two-person exhibition that grapples with complex environmental issues.
