Karen Hymer, artist and gallery owner at Light Art Space, asked Pat and I to bring select images from the Geology of Spirit exhibition to Silver City, New Mexico for August, September and part of October. The space is just beautiful, and it was so exciting to see my gold leaf pieces on her walls (perfect lighting to show off their depth and shine).
Our opening reception on August 24th was one of three that evening which included Variegated Views (Joel Armstrong, Ben Brown, Valerie Galloway, Carmen Ruiz, Eugene Starobinsky, and Cougar Vigil) and Evolution at Work (Mimi Calise Peterson and Art Peterson). The gallery was full of amazing art - nearly every form of photography imaginable, painting, sculpture, drawing, and mixed media.
The best part was getting to meet all the talented, kind and open people that took part in the exhibitions. Visitors were equally wonderful and reflected the creative spirit of Silver City. Talking, eating, drinking, laughing … my heart was full to bursting by the end of the night.
Here are a few images from the installed exhibition.
