I'm thrilled that this newly-formed artist collective "s(and)" is having their first group exhibition at Exhibit 208 in Albuquerque next month.

Opening reception with artists: May 8, 5:00-8:00 pm

“Sand” is a curious material. Grains from mysterious and varied origins collect together in unity, be it a beach, a desert, a garden or or a playground. Sand can be part of an oasis of safety and also a stormy, destructive force. Sand can be a soft, soothing surface and also a scratchy irritant. Sand can express a range of qualities and invoke varied responses.

We are a group of artists, based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This exhibition will serve to introduce our work as unique particles of a whole, a sum and its parts, to illustrate the diversity and quality of artistic voices in this region. Coming together as a community, we promote community, despite differences, to create a unified force of impact.

Our work rejects the desire for categorization by gender or place; each artist in the collective is unique in style, process, and vision. Photography, sculpture, painting, and works on paper; abstract and figurative, personal to universal: try to define us and grains will be sure to escape through the filter.
