May at Ghostwolf will be full of fun as we kick off the month with a First Friday ARTScrawl visit from artist Laura Wacha! Later in the month we celebrate Endangered Species Day with the opening of WILD! a juried show celebrating wildlife and diversity. All of the details you may need are below. Read on!
Also, please note that we are closed on Tuesdays & Wednesdays during the month of May.
APRIL First Friday ARTScrawl (May 5th; 5-8pm)Join us at the gallery to visit with artist Laura Wacha! Laura’s flamboyantly colored, humorous narratives illustrate what may lie beneath the surface of our self-perceptions regarding ourselves and society. Laura has been named “Best Artist” by the AABA and by readers of Albuquerque The Magazine. Light refreshments.
Ghostwolf is excited to announce the opening of a juried exhibition entitled WILD! on May 20th, 2017. WILD! is an eclectic collection that we hope expresses the reverence, wonder, and whimsy we feel for earth’s wild creatures, yet also takes a deeper look at our relationships with them and the threats that we may ourselves pose to their well-being. As part of the celebration, we will be featuring the work of well-known local artists Amanda Banker & Rocky Norton for the entirety of the show.
Opening day festivities will include opening remarks by show curator Amy M. Ditto and a representative of Defenders of Wildlife, a live demonstration by Mr. Norton with opportunities for visitors to interact with the work, and a brief talk by artist Sandra Corless. Wildlife West will be present to chat and will have an educational animal with them visitors can meet! Hors d’oeuvres and special treats will be provided by the High Noon Restaurant and Saloon & Q Chocolate.
A portion of the proceeds from the show will be donated to Defenders of Wildlife to aid in their work to protect and restore imperiled wildlife across North America and around the world.
