"New Mexico: Living Relief"

Krrrl is co-curating, with Mary Sundstrom, the exhibition "New Mexico: Living Relief" at Remarque/New Grounds Print Workshop in Albuquerque.  Opening on February 1st, 5 - 8 PM.

Henry Morales and Chris Bardey from the Desert Triangle are featured in this exhibition.  We will also probably included Raul Monarrez and Francisco Delgado, from El Paso, just across the line.

Also from El Paso:

This is the press release that Krrrl wrote:

"New Mexico: Living Relief" is an exhibition of contemporary artists of our region dedicated to relief printmaking, including those working in the southern part of our state. From below the 34th latitude are prints from Fred Barraza, Phillip Parotti, and Chris Bardey, all of whom were prominent in Silver City during last year's Southwest Print Fiesta. This show also follows the relief exhibition at the Albuquerque Museum last year -- "The Carved Line: Block Printmaking in New Mexico" -- which was organized in part by Santa Fe printmaker Scott Parker, who is having a solo show in the main gallery. Albuquerque and Santa Fe artists featured include Henry Morales, Mary Sweet, Jan Vanderburg, Mike Kimball, and Karsten Creightney. Since prints travel easily, they can readily showcase the creative pulse in the greater New Mexico province as a whole.
