Discover a World of Possibilities

New exhibit "The Field of Possibilities" opens at South Broadway Cultural Center
January 19, 2024

"Om Bhavam Namah," which translates to I am absolute existence. I am a field of all possibilities, provided the inspiration for the new art exhibition by 9x9 Art Group that opens at the South Broadway Cultural Center on Thursday, Jan. 25 with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. The group of nine artists are active and former educators, primarily in the art departments of local Albuquerque public and private schools, in addition to being professional artists.

The theme takes its name from a mantra for meditation in which it is a step to achieve a state of enlightenment, according to exhibition organizers. The 9x9 Art Group created an exhibition of and for self awareness, meditation, and creative possibility. A variety of methods and media including painting, sculpture, drawing, and 3-D construction, set up a field of possibilities from which to enjoy, ponder, and grow. A collaborative piece is among the entries. There is a short presentation with poetry and musical accompaniment to the exhibit as an added feature.

The collection of artists in 9x9 Art Group include Peter Fitzpatrick; Larry L. Smith; Jeannette Williams; Cecily Colbert; Mary Dornacker; Lauri Dickinson; Joani Murphy; Christopher Bull; and Santiago Perez. Each have contributed substantially to the development of many art programs and activities to further the development of young people in Albuquerque, and further, New Mexico. This exhibit will, in turn, provide an opportunity for people of all ages - but primarily young people - to enjoy and appreciate the art of these artists and educators.

The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public. "The Field of Possibilities" is on view through March 23 at South Broadway Cultural Center located at 1025 Broadway Blvd. SE. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
