First Friday ARTScrawl (October 4th; 5-8pm) INTRODUCING:
CRISTINA SANCHEZ & IVANA STARCEVIC
This First Friday, meet our feature artists Cristina Sanchez & Ivana Starcevic! Cristina’s clay and mixed media art features the human figure as protagonist. Ivana’s bold abstract expressionistic paintings seek to capture “the spirit of place” in art. Work from both artists draws from childhood roots and memories in thought-provoking and often breathtaking fashion. We’re delighted to announce that Cristina & Ivana will be showing with us on an ongoing basis! You can learn more about themon our website.
Ghostwolf is open 11-6 daily. This exhibition will be on display throughout the month.

SOMETHING TO HOWL ABOUT CONGRATULATIONS ROE LiBRETTO & IVANA STARCEVIC!
We love our artists and we’re delighted when they receive recognition from the arts community. This month, during “The Architecture of Beauty: Prominent New Mexico Artists” exhibit at Gallery with a Cause, Ivana Starcevic received the People’s Choice Award and Roe LiBretto received the Doctors’ and Staff Choice Award.
Roe LiBretto’s work was also selected to be included in the Art in Public Places Program of New Mexico Arts. The program’s goal is to reflect the diversity of the arts in New Mexico, the southwest, and the nation, while building a dynamic public art collection for the State of New Mexico.
Huge congratulations to both!
