First Friday ARTScrawl (November 2nd; 5-8pm) REPRESENT!
An exhibition by local artists celebrating the mid-term elections
Early voting has already begun and the mid-terms are just around the corner. This exhibition celebrates what local artists are passionate about! Be it hot-button issues or those less talked about, a broad subsection of topics are represented, from grass-roots activism to the importance of visiting your local animal shelter when considering adopting a forever friend. Each piece includes a story card so that viewers can learn a little about the artist’s motivations.
Exhibition runs through November 18th, daily 11 am to 6 pm (closed Wednesdays)
WELCOME NEW ARTISTS!
A self-titled “Mistress of Monsters”, Gaby’s colorful, whimsical monsters are sure to delight!
From her website:
A doodle on my symphonic band music in high school, and there it was. My first monster. Years later, as I trekked across the world and lived among various different cultures, I experimented with new techniques in paintings and in journals. Upon my return to the United States, I found comfort in creating art, and became increasingly obsessed with the idea of a world in which monsters and humans live alongside one another.
From her website:
The Southwest’s influence is evident in all her works with the use of bold and bright colors. Sweeping gestures and brush strokes are found in her abstracts, then they are turned and twisted to reveal the emotional impact the surrounding environment has.
“What I create is based on a subconscious, emotional, and creative inspiration, that evolves into an image or form in my conscious mind… I use color and form to communicate and intensify that image.”
SEAN PAUL GALLEGOS Dia de los Muertos Art Exhibition

Debt Fair In addition to the Los Muertos exhibit, Sean Paul was also selected to participate in the Debtfair.org digital exhibition, which is part of the Currency Exhibit at 516 Arts. “Currency” opens Nov. 17th.
“In Debtfair, Occupy Museums continues their ongoing intervention that began at Art League Houston and appeared at the Whitney Biennial in 2017. The collective asks New Mexico artists how debt affects them and their art and uses collected data to explore the real impacts of debt at a time when U.S. credit card debt alone is over one trillion dollars.”
