Sixty Artists From Across New Mexico, California, and Texas Converge in Albuquerque for a Four-Venue Exhibition and Artist Exchange.

Four Albuquerque art galleries, including El Chante: Casa de Cultura, Exhibit/208, Tortuga Gallery, and South Broadway Cultural Center, will host Son de Allá y Son de Acá / They Are From There, and They Are From Here, the second phase of a two-part artist exchange facilitated by local Albuquerque artists Vicente Telles.

The initial planning for the two-phase artist exhibition began in early 2021. The first exhibition opened at Presa House Gallery in April 2022 as a three-person exhibition featuring Ricardo Islas, Brandon Maldonado, and Vicente Telles, titled Crossing Boarder: Tres de Oeste. The newest exhibit brings together 60 participating artists representing New Mexico, Texas, California, Arizona, and Colorado.

The opening reception for the first three exhibitions will be held on First Friday, August 5, 2022, beginning at 4 p.m. at Tortuga Gallery and at 5 p.m. at El Chante: Casa de Cultura and South Broadway Cultural Center. A live performance by multidisciplinary artist Jose Villalobos will take place at 7 p.m. at South Broadway Cultural Center. The fourth and final exhibitions will open on Friday, August 12 at Exhibit/208 beginning at 5 p.m.
