Open Stories: Finding Art in All the Right Places
Open Stories: Finding Art in All the Right Places Exhibit runs June 11 to Aug. 28.
New Mexico is an ancient place. The trees and rocks that have witnessed history unfold in these foothills, valleys, and woodlands have much to say. To experience their stories, one must seek unspoiled land and dedicate time and effort into discovering the truth behind their cracks and crevasses.
Mixed media artist Chris Meyer has opened his eyes and ears to the biology and geology of many of our local Open Spaces, collecting their stories to enhance and enlarge through his art practice. Using a unique blend of photography, collage, and digital darkroom techniques, Chris coaxes abstract works of raw beauty out of the cracks others may overlook.
The next time you visit one of our Open Spaces, linger a little longer, and you too will discover why New Mexico is truly enchanting.
