Summary -- Living Relief

We had a great opening for the "New Mexico: Living Relief" exhibition, on February 1st, 2019.  Many visitors came from Santa Fe.  Many of the artists came.  And the director of the Albuquerque Museum, Dr Andrew Connors, came.

This exhibition aspired to exhibit the best living printmakers in the state of New Mexico, including those in the 575 area code, living in the southern part of the state.  In this way it was a follow up to last year's Southwest Print Fiesta in Silver City, as well at the "Carved Line: Block Printing in New Mexico" exhibit at the Albuquerque Museum one year earlier.

Also in the hallway we hung relief prints from just across the state line, by artists in El Paso.
