Undercurrents Art Exhibit
In Undercurrents, eight local artists interpret and respond to Open Space lands, inspiring an exchange of ideas about our environment and sparking discussion about its conservation and stewardship.
All eight artists belong to a collective called artNEXUSnm—a group with a 10-year history of collaboration.
In this exhibit, artNEXUSnm artists express their unique views of the Bosque, as a complex ecosystem and as a beautiful destination. Through paintings, prints, sculpture, and land art, their individual pieces represent different strands within a tapestry of common threads.
Some bring forward the importance of preservation and conservation while others subtly suggest reclamation and repair.
The resulting body of work hangs in a stunning array throughout the Open Space Visitor Center's gallery, grounds, and trails, literally and figuratively weaving in the viewer's own awareness, understanding and appreciation for this incredible, riverside woodland in which we live and play.
